Pannier rack for a disc-braked 'cross bike?
Started a new job, so planning on riding the 22 mile (each way) commute a couple of times a week. So I need a pannier rack that will fit my On One ti cross bike.
I like the look of the Tubus Disco but its chuffing pricey. Axiom Streamliner Disc looks to be a bit of a copy of it, but the Streamliner DLX looks a lot nicer, but I can’t find any images of either fitted properly.
What the best looking (ie most subtle) but sensible and lightweight options out there?
The Madison Ridge also looks good value, bt I can’t see how it fits around a brake calliper.Posted 3 years agobrassneckSubscriber
I’m sure you’ve decided on a rack as the way to go, but I do a similar commute with a £15 Karrimor running rucksack from sports direct – it’s one of the soft ones so you can pack the weight low on to your hips, and I can get clothes including shoes in there – just take a towel in on a car day and swap. Working out best for me so far of all the options I’ve tried.Posted 3 years agokcalSubscriber
I’m looking for similar – tending to the Tortec, can be had for c. £20 last I looked, or about £25 / £30 in LBS.
Looking at some of the above – the Tubus is a QR mount (I have eyelets at the rear triangle) and the Axoim is a P-clamp (I have braze-on mounts). Alternative for me seems to be the Topeak as above.Posted 3 years agozilog6128Subscriber
I bought a Tubus Disco as I thought it was one of the best looking racks and I wanted something I could fit to a disc frame easily (although Googling suggests you can probably bodge most racks onto most frames). I’d say it’s worth the money; it’s pretty light and seems bomb-proof so should last forever!Posted 3 years agoDaffySubscriber
Portland Design Works Payload racks can apparently handle discs.

I posted a similar thread a while ago – couldn’t find a pannier rack that was both suitable for discs and had a slim enough fixing point. So we ended up filing down an existing Topeak (it has massive square sections that provide the spacing around the disc) – had to take a chunk off the corner to get it to align with the frame fixing point, but it works well now.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve got a tubus whatever-it-is in the wardrobe from when Evans were getting rid for £25.
It’s the 26″ one, but it still sits a bit high on the Peregrine – eyelets are on the seatstays above the disc mount.
I’m hoping to get someone to artfully rearrange it for me.Posted 3 years ago
