- A good pannier rack to fit a 700c rear disc brake frame?
Just getting ready for the summer riding as its been such a good day here today. I realised I need a rear rack for the summer riding stop overs, commuting etc. I have a Planet X Uncle John running disc brakes. So I need a rack thats easy to fit and fully compatible wih a 700c frame and rear disc set up. I’m not looking to carry much a pair of light side pannier bags at most 10-15KG in weight. So whats out there?Posted 11 years ago
Tubus are great quality at a huge price. Having bust most other racks available I will never buy owt else again. Tubus titanium fly – a mere 50 odd quidPosted 11 years agomudsharkMember
I’m looking at getting one; my current favourite is the Tortec Expedition.
TJ – is that rack stiff enough?Posted 11 years agoSandwichSubscriber
I’m using a Tubus Locc on my commuter as the Abus lock fits the attachment.Posted 11 years agosimondbarnesSubscriber
Topeak Supertourist Disc works for me.Posted 11 years ago
Mudshark – I have not first hand experience of that rack – I have a tubus cargo and a swing both of which are very good. The OP only wants 15 kg weight limit hence I suggested the fly – the cargo takes 50KgPosted 11 years ago
Topeak Supertourist Disc works for me.
Did a tour of the Hebrides with it last year and it’ll be taking me on a longer tour (with tent etc.) later this spring. Has withstood bumping over Edinburgh cobbles etc with nary a murmur.Posted 11 years ago
my madison stainless steel rack was good for 3 and a bit months touring mostly on road(all be it rough) but with stretches of off road round nz was fine on my girlfriends kona dew plus which had disks !
Mine(same rack) had 30kg on once i had all the water and fuel on board and Jaynes had about 20kgs inPosted 11 years ago

seth, I have a cheap £15ish one from wiggle, used on my kaff with no probs. I also have an XL uncle john in the garage, with discs. I can try it on and see if it fits ok if you like?Posted 11 years ago

paulosoxo it cant hurt to try it. cheersPosted 11 years ago
this is mine here
where the bottom bolt hole is, is about 3/4’s over one of the holes. If I cut the bottom bit that’s fouling the caliper, just below the weld. it should go.
Mines an XL, so I should imagine a smaller frame will have a shallower angle of the seat stays, so you should have a bit more room.
Hope that helpsPosted 11 years ago
