I currently have a hybrid that I've installed a Racktime AddIt rack on that I use for light commuting. So far it's been great with no complaints. I'm currently setting up a touring bike and saw that Racktime makes both an AddIt and a TourIt rack that seem very similar. Yes, the support rail shape is a bit different but they both have side rails (which I really like), both mount with identical hardware, and both have the same rated weight capacity. It appears that the TourIt is about a half pound heavier and a bit more money, although not a significant amount.
Is there a performance, quality, or functionality difference that I'm missing? Any input or comments would be appreciated.
I can't examine the TourIt because no one around here sells them so they would have to be ordered.
BTW...I'm not using the hybrid for touring because it weighs +/-40 lbs. with the rack on it and it's a load to go up hills even with its mountain gearing. I'd also prefer drop bars for longer distances.
