fender and rack using same eyelet
so I bought a new front rack for my bike and even though I have two eyelets I have to use the one because of the shape of the rack. It's a low rider rack designed for those rubber u-bolts to hold it to the fork, but my fork actually has those screws that go into it so it slightly changes the configuration (negligibly for pannier placement).
Does anyone have any horror stories about why it's not a good idea to use one eye let for both fender and rack mounts?
