To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Good system let down by poor secondary brackets, a little more care over the design of the brackets that connect to the stays under the seat would have made the difference between a good and great product
I managed to install this on my road bike and used it with the pannier PakRak bag. The product is decent, the instructions are pretty terrible though. It doesn't do a good job of describing which parts are for going where or how to hook anything up. I had to refer to product pictures to figure some things out. They are clearly instructions for a older model. I had to bend the rods for the bike 'stays' which was fine. They cut into my break line a bit until I had them sufficiently bent to avoid too much rubbing. Once I had everything really tight it all holds together without much rattling. I'm glad to have moved away from using a backpack and actually bike much more easily with the rack. I would recommend a saddle bag in the future, instead of a pannier. It makes the bike a little more top/rear heavy and my bike tends to topple sideways when leaning stationary. Once you're moving though, it is smooth sailing anyway.
I've been using this rack with Schwins' side bags. The rack is really sturdy and light. The screws holding the bottom leg to the frame extends a bit too much and pierced through the fabric of the back of my bag before I was able to notice the damage :-( (hence why 4 starts instead of 5). I've put some electric tape over the screws and Gorilla tape over the holes in my bags and haven't had a problem since.
Contiene todo lo necesario para su colocación, pero debido a las características de mi bicicleta me dio un poco de trabajo su colocación, creo que está hecho para bicicletas híbridas, que tenga los orificios necesarios para una colocación sin problemas, apenas se nota el incremento de peso en la bicicleta,
Did not realize that this carrier was not compatible with disc brake bicycles until I read the installation instructions. I was able to make it work, but it took some time. Perhaps the online product information made mention of this limitation, but I certainly didn’t notice.
This is a great lightweight rack, but it could not be installed as instructed without getting in the way of the brakes. My husband managed to attach it under the saddle instead of on the frame, and it seems to be just fine.
