    Mystery Rear Rack, Can anyone ID?

    Picked this up at the Habitat for Humanity store today. No brand name anywhere on the rack. The sides each clamp onto the main deck, that is extruded aluminum.

    It has a couple of extra clamps (blue ones) that I cannot figure out.

    The blue clamps could be stops for pannier hooks

    Wow, take advantage of all that real estate in the main triangle and under the seat cluster for gear bags. 1.75" foldable Panaracer T-serv are a very comfy light tire with decent puncture resistance. Looks great.

    I just picked up a NOS version of this rack. Its a Topeak, Rak Mule, and the odd area under the rack is designed to hold a U brake.
