    Got any pics of some modifided pannier racks?

    Just bought a pannier rack that is not compatible with disc break bikes, just wondered if there are any pics of people that have modded their racks to fit different bikes? The rack is Hand-welded 10.2mm tubular 6061 T6 Aluminium.

    This one: http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_236256

    Only reason I ask if because I literally just bought it and cannot return it so if its quite easy to mod onto a bigger disc bike id rather do that...

    It's very do-able to mount many things on a bike with automotive "P" clips. (Use vinyl/rubber covered clips)

    Find the correct size "P" clips at your local automotive parts store or farm equipment dealer.

    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Never thought of this as a option.
    I didn't even asked the question but got a answer to a old problem.
    Thank you Nightshade
