I'm trying to decide which rear rack to put on my new Surly LHT. I have size 14 feet, which means heel strike is likely to be an issue. Looking at pictures, both these racks seem to have a long bar for mounting the panniers - which should make it easier for me to slide my panniers as far back as possible.
I was at a bike shop that had the Expedition and some Tubus model (I wasn't familiar enough to know which I was looking at and I didn't write anything down - idiot!) The Tubus felt lighter than the Jandd, which would be nice.
However, I'm going to be bungeeing my tent and sleeping bag crossways to the top of the rack. The Tubus looks positively skinny. The Jandd looks really wide!
I think I'm leaning towards the Jandd, but want to make sure that there's enough room to slide the panniers back. Also, is the narrow width of the Tubus really a problem?
