opinion on hitchcocks rear rack
« on: November 21, 2012, 11:40:59 PM »
Just got this Hitchcocks rear rack today. looks a bit on the small/undecided side.
To install I must drill 2 X 6mm holes through the rear guard.
Sometimes other opinions are a better source. So do you like the rack or not? :-\

It looks pretty good but I'm not sure how useful it will be.

I suppose with 6 bungee cords and some determination, a 12 pack of Stout could be held to it long enough to ride home. :)

It looks really nice, just a wee bit small, but its aesthetically pleasing.

Too small.... might as well get a tank bag or saddle bags...
What did you want to put on it?
To ride or not to ride... That is the question!

+1. Definitely too small and not worth drilling 2 holes in a beautiful fender.
