Tubus Cargo Expedition and Cargo Evo platform width?

Hello,

I'm searching around trying to find out how wide the top platform is (e.g, whether I can mount a trunk bag) on the Tubus Cargo Expedition and the Cargo Evo. 700c versions. Can anyone with these racks tell me?

Thanks,

Scott

You can find those dimensions on the product pages on Tubus' website ( http://tubus.com ) in a pdf that's being linked to on every product page.

Doh, you're right - I had totally overlooked this!

For future reference, the platform dimensions for the Cargo Classic are 120mm x 275mm (4.8" x 11"), and the Cargo Evo are 114mm x 258mm (4.56" x 10.32").

By comparison, my Blackburn EX-1, which holds my Axiom trunk bag perfectly is 5" wide by almost 12" long. Looks like the Cargo Evo would be pushing this too much, but the Cargo Classic would be do-able.

Thanks,

Scott
