I'm new here but been a lurker for a couple months. I recently quit my wage slave job in a cubicle, and I'm preparing for my first tour to Central America from Atlanta, GA. Woo!
I'm currently having a little trouble with mounting a front rack. The eyelets are buried behind the front forks and make mounting the Nashbar rack a little difficult. Also, the Nashbar one seems sub-par. I plan on getting Ortlieb panniers.
Could anyone recommend compatible yet sturdy front racks? I'm trying not to break the bank, but I'd prefer a solid rack.
