Hi all, first I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself my name is Ben I'm a 30 year old male who's very new to cycling

I have recently percuss a Giant xtc2 disc hardtail (2004) that I have plans to do some touring on.
I have now just rolled over 1000km in preparation (fitness & knowledge)and am about to set out on my first ride Toukley to Nundle 309km's.
I have brought spares, tent , rear saddles sleeping gear etc

The problem I'm having is I cannot find good quality aluminium rear racks to suit the bike.

Don't expect to be carrying much weight but would like something
sturdy. I am a fitter buy trade and have a fully tooled workshop
modifications would not be a problem within reason offcourse .

If any members have a rack fitted to this model bike or can give advice or maybe refer me to somebody that can . I would appreciate very much.
Thx for taking the time to read my post.
I just bought a rack this morning made for or by Giant to suit my Rincon. It has the Giant brand name and a 25 kg load limit, it seems very sturdy to me. Didnt find any reference to it on the Giant website though, perhaps your LBS can help out?

speaking of XTC's... What's up with Giant making a 14" and 17" with nothing in the middle? I went and tried the sizes out at my local dealer, and neither fit:( I'm currently riding on a 15.5" Stump Comp M2. Sorry for the off topic post, but what about the small but not 14" small guys???

I really liked the bike though. Nice purchase Ben!
