Hey guys. I'm setting up my commuter with a rack to take a couple of ortlieb panniers for some light touring and just grocery runs etc. I'm pretty decided on a tubus racks, from reputation, and think I'll go with the luna (http://www.tubus.com/en/rear-carriers/luna). Now, before I go pressing any buy buttons on racks or bags, will I run into massive heel clearance issues?
Obviously I'll need the QR adapter to get it on there at all, but I have a couple of niggling concerns:
1. Will it even fit? It occurs to me the seat stays on my largish (61 ctt seat tube) bike are very steep, moving the brake bridge rearward, and kind of tight with regards to the 13.6cm of room required forwards of the vertical line above the mount for the luna...
2. Assuming it mounts will I hit my (size 46) heels on some back roller classics? I'd say that the furthest back my heel will go with look pedals and my road shoes is around 1-1.5 inches forward of the seat stay, about 1/3rd up, if that makes any sense haha.
3. Would using front rollers and a rack pack when need be alleviate this risk at all?
4. Assuming front rollers offer to improvement, how far back can I move the back rollers from the centre line of the rack, and how much of an angle can I place them at before I run into other problems? this guy seems to have taken it to a fair extreme:
is that sort of thing possible with the QL1 system found on the classic or would I have to step it up to the plus to get QL2?
