Rack recommendations for road bike?
I got a new road bike this weekend, which means I want to transform my old road bike into a light touring bike/commuter bike.
The bike is a Jamis Quest, a Reynolds 651 steel framed road bike with Shimano 105, a compact crank, and eyelets on the seatstays and the chainstays.
Most of the rear racks I've looked at are for big touring bikes or MTB- I'd like something sleek, light, and more "roadie" for my Quest.
So far the only rack I've found is the Tubus Luna/Fly (I'd get the luna). Only thing is I'm not sure it will fit on my bike- it mounts not to seatstay eyelets but to the brake bridge. Not sure if this will work with my road brakes.
Any other slim/lightweight racks you can recommend? Thanks.
