    Comments about Nashbar Universal Fit Mountain Rack:

    I bought this rack because I needed a rack that would be tall enough to clear the top of the fender on our Trek Cruiseliner Tandem.
    Other racks weren't adjustable for height and the specs generally didn't address their height.
    I inquired of Bike Nashbar re. the max height of this rack and they responded in less than 24 hours with a definitive answer.
    I ordered the rack and it works perfectly and was very easy to install.

    Comments about Nashbar Universal Fit Mountain Rack:

    I put two Wald folding baskets on this rack and can now carry two huge canvas bags of groceries on my bike along with three children under 6. After two years of heavy use, my old rack broke in a car accident, saving my wheel from needing a true. Replaced it with the same rack, and I'm golden again. Only problem is that my bike is mostly chrome and grey. I wish they had a chrome option.

        Comments about Nashbar Universal Fit Mountain Rack:

        First off, the rack is very wide. It includes one inch spacers so it will fit, but it's wider than it needs to be. Second, if you have a Trek FX, it won't fit. The frame geometry just wont allow it to fit. It fit fine on my daughter's Specialized Sirrus. It also functions as a fender, keeping rain off your back.

        Comments about Nashbar Universal Fit Mountain Rack:

        It took my friend an I a good hour to get this thing mounted to my frame. I think part of the reason it took so long is that I have a pretty small road bike that I use for commuting, but I don't think it should have been so difficult. We actually had to warp the metal attachments so they would fit around the brakes. I wouldn't recommend this for smaller frames.

          I put this rack on a hybrid bike. It was easy to install, taking only about 30 minutes, including the fine tuning of placement. I bought this rack to mount the nashbar daytrekker panniers on, great combo!

            The rack had all the necessary hardware and went on without a hitch. It was well thought out. I could not imagine any of the more expensive racks providing any more utility or durability than this quality rack. If you are in the market for a Mountain bike rack buy this rack!

            Comments about Nashbar Universal Fit Mountain Rack:

            This rack is designed to mount on bikes with disk brakes, so it's very wide and the sides bow out. Yes, it is universal fit, and the included spacers mean you can mount it on a narrower frame, but that means you add extra inches of width on either side. The height is adjustable, but the distance from the top rail to the point where your panniers attach is abnormally short. On most racks I've used, that distance is about 12 inches. On this rack, it's about 10 inches. That means it won't work with one set of my panniers at all, and even Nashbar's own rear panniers fit on it very poorly, due to the short height and the curved front of the deck. I would return it but after all the shipping costs I don't think it would be worth the trouble. The one nice thing about it was that they included P-clamps with the hardware.

                Comments about Nashbar Universal Fit Mountain Rack:

                This is my first time using a bike rack. I attached to my commuter bike, and for the one month in use, the rack has performed well.

                It took me about 45 minutes to assmeble and attach to my bike; came partially assembled, instruction diagram okay, but you will need a few tools (bike multi-tool and pliers).

                I use the rack with a Detours 9 liter rack top bag. I have carried 10 lbs or less thus far and the rack is stable with no issues such as rattling (that does not apply to riding over giant craters in the street). I will soon use with panniers and more weight (up to 15 lbs). But so far so good.
