Rack for brevet tandem

We will focus entirely on brevets the next couple of years. Have for this reason a new comotion speedster copilot in order. Usually we use our Carradice Lowsaddle Langflap on our Ibis tandems and have aluminium racks under those.

Should we find a rack for the speedster or buy a Bagman

We also think if it will be difficult with the rack under transport (planes or trains and busses).

What distance brevets will you be doing? Up to a 1200k? I've used a rack on our brevets in the past but I'm not a big fan of them. If the Carradice worked for you in the past why not stick with it?
