    I would hardly call what I posted "plans".


    What you made is awesome. Weight weenies will cringe but that rack will hold some serious cargo! Nice rack and nice job documenting the process.

    I would make a nasty comment about weight weenies...but I am trying to play nice...time to take my fully loaded Raleigh Superbe down to the LBS again and let them put it on the scale in front of all the roadies I passed on the way in

    I'm going to try something like this for my Yuba, but bolted to the frame. Thanks for the idea.

    What color did you paint it? I really like homemade, especially when it works better than store bought. I did see aluminum tube and flat bar right along side the steel at Home Depot. Lighter and more expensive, but looks strong enough. Glad I'm not the only one 'fabricating' custom gear. Seems like we cargo/utility folks sorta have to so we get something that works.
