    I would appreciate recommendations for a substantial rear rack. I've looked at a lot online and in person, and they seem to be much of a muchness.
    I'm looking for something rock solid, that extends as far back as practical.

    Ideas?

    This is the beefiest I've come across, mega solid and a good size;

    Or if you want ultimate strength (at a price!) then;

    [IMG ALT=""]http://www.cyclingforums.com/content/type/61/id/297815/width/500/height/1000[/IMG] As a touring cyclist as well as a commuter I am a big fan of Tubus racks. Light and very strong. On my Surly Long Haul Trucker I have a Tubus Cargo Expedition but there are lighter options. My front rack is a Tubus Tara. Andrew

    Yep ... I guess you are not familiar with Brooks Saddles ... BTW rode around 3,000 kilometres on that ride with that saddle :) Andrew

    Aushiker's bars appear to be higher than the nose of his Brooks. Bolt upright position.
