cheap and easy rack suggestion?

11 posts in this topic

I have a weekend ride at the end of the month, we'll be doing roughly 600miles in total. I need to carry a tent/sleeping bag,some clothes and food.

Do i tie it to the rear fender (no rack) or do i quickly try and make one?

whats the best solution... I cant order a pro billit unit - will take forever to get to me.

I haven't got one yet but I like the look of the www.cycleracks.com/

rack for the WR450, I will be ordering one in a few weeks time and he is pretty good to deal with going by the communications I have had from him, time will tell.

Very nice Asgeir, I might look at modifing the Cycle rack version to something similar. Great links too, :worthy:

We rode with 30 kg on each rack for 6 days.

These frame mounts will hold the weight very well.

Just make sure to hold the weight as close to the bike as possible.

My bike with the boxes had a slight tail dangling on slightly technical tracks.

I would like to know how those tubes were bent so well, do you have a machine to do it or is there a manual way to bend without crushing?
