i dont need this, i dont need this, i dont need this…
I’m even pondering one for a retro off road touring bike a la Boblo.

I bought two I don’t need. Couldn’t not at that price. Opinion at CTC forums was that the 26″ version was only 1cm lower than the standard. The standard Cargo on my Long Haul Trucker has 2cm clearance over mudguards big enough to take 700×42 tyres with good clearance. So the 26″ version should fit many 700c bikes. Depending on where the mounting is in relation to the axle and size of tyres/mudguards.
So my wife’s Orbit tourer will get a Tubus instead of a cheapo rack and the other will go on the shelf until I get round to getting a Cross Check frame.Posted 4 years ago
TBF my Blackburn is still going strong after my daily commute, crossing France and the Rockies (off road).
I bought it 25 years ago – second hand.
The original Blackburn racks were bombproof. Mine were branded Jim Blackburn.
The new ones are mince by comparison.
Tubus racks are the first choice for round the world bike tourists. Super strong and field weldable should they break.Posted 4 years ago
But with Tubus racks, the paint gets scratched, then they start rusting.
really? Mine didn’t. Had an off and scraped my bike along the road, there were a few shiny silver areas where the paint and a tiny bit of material were removed. Over a year later they are still shiny silver. This is on a bike that is used every day, in all weather, and not cleaned very often!Posted 4 years agopebbleMember
If anyone is looking for one of these and missed the opportunity to purchase, I have one available which was used once. Bought from Wiggle but it cost a lot more than £25 (I have the original receipt to validate this).
However, yours for £25 + post at cost.

anyone having to cut their seatstay struts down?
Probably not, I’m guessing. The peregrine has the “axle” eyelets a couple of inches higher to clear the disc caliper, and it means the seatstay struts need to be pointing up and back and foul the rack.
