    I’ve been looking for a good rear rack for the Fargo. Salsa make an alloy rack specifically for it and the Vaya, the Wanderlust.

    Has anyone tried one?

    Fitting a Tubus rack looks tricky because of the location of the seat stay mountings, perhaps using the combined seat post and rack mount clamp may improve/reduce the stay length and angle to reduce flex.

    No, not tried, but am very interested…

    I’m looking at the version for the el mariachi. looks solid enough.

    This is another option:

    Old Man Mountain

    Unsure of the pricing, they both seem a little steep, I get away nicely with a minimalist rack on the front and a topeak qr one on the rear.

    No problems fitting a Tubus Fly on my Fargo. Very solid, no movement with two 20lt Ortliebs plus bag on top.
    Only looking for a seatpost system due to tyre width restriction and that feeling with panniers of when the back wheel drops into holes when off road

    Get the alternator specific one for your salsa… They are very nice.

    I fitted the standard 29er rack made by Topeak to mine. Went on with no hassles and hasn’t fallen off yet. £30 or so on CRC/Bike discount.

    Yup, they are lovely… but £90?? 😯

    Hmmm, time to think I guess.

    Stainless Tubus on my Fargo and Vaya, no issues fitting them at all, and yes they are expensive but they will be carrying quite a few pounds of weight and expensive gear) so it seemed daft to me to go cheap

    Hasn’t one of the bigger companies bought out the Freeloader and re-branded it?

    I’ve got an OMM Sherpa as I had a Thorn Raven for a while which has mounts designed specifiaclly for it. I don’t use the hub-mount system nowm, I made myself some new plates to allow me to get it as neat as possible. Very happy with it. I’ll see if I’ve got a pic somewhere…
