Hello,
I picked this up the other day - and just out of curiosity: any idea who made it?





Thanks for any info!
Not super important - just wondering...

Somebody who had building a serious rack in mind.

No idea who, but I like it.

I have an Axiom rack with similar features. Maybe that, or maybe a Topeak?

I can barely read it, but it looks like it was built by a guy named Max (Something)kgs.

It looks like a beefed-up version of my Axiom Oddysee* :



* I'm not sure if I spelled 'Oddysee' correctly; Axiom altered the correct spelling for branding purposes.

I've also got a similar one. A few differences. Mine has pump pegs. Overall similar shape/design. But, unfortunately no maker's marks either'.

I decided not to use mine since it sits very high, and very far back. It just seemed awkward when I mounted it on the bike.

Oh, searching, here is this one, but unfortunately unavailable.

Planning on selling? I actually like a far back rack on some bikes, for pannier heel clearance.

Thanks everyone! Yeah, it is super beefy - seems really well made and is relatively light.

@madpogue, I'll sell mine to you if you're interested - I can take any measurements needed if you'd like. Send me a PM if you'd like it!
(PS Is your username a Shane MacGowan reference?)
