I'm proud of the new rack for the Miyata. This bike is now tour-ready. I can distribute up to 15 lbs. of my load in the front or add a heavy handlebar bag. I like the simple connection to the cantilever brake mounts, as mentioned in last years post.
version? It's out of my price range and looks like it's not as adaptable too.
So far, I've hauled a 5lb. bag of bunny hay on it, strapped with bungy cord. It was ridiculously large for the front area, but it worked. I also ordered the black version of this rack for the Ross bike.
