      Installed as described, no problem with disc brakes, all parts were included. Need only a wrench and screw driver. Install was a cinch.

        Comments about Blackburn EX-1 Rack Universal Fit - Closeout:

        The included skewer was a little to short for a Trek 7.2FX Disc. There were just too many things that had to happen to get this on the bike. The skewer had to be pulled out, the rack spread to fit the bike, the brake disc lined up, the chain put on the cassette. I didn't have enough hands to do this on the work stand, let alone on the side of the road. AXIOM STREAMLINER DISC rack bought to replace this. I was able to bolt it to the frame instead of using in on the skewer as intend and it works well though it sits back quite a way, no foot clearance problems that's for sure.

          I have a full suspension mt. bike so my options are limited in what I can purchase for a rear rack. I have used this rack as a commuter and for errands. I may eventually turn this bike into an e-bike but I don't think this rack will work for a rear gear hub... but that's another story. This rack is sturdy, stable and came with all the hardware I needed. The suspension works and I haven't experienced any downsides. Great value!

          It was well made, but not easily installed and if you had a flat tire on the road it would make the tire change very difficult. I returned it foran exchange.

          Called tech before purchase and discussed. I wanted to use on my recently purchased Nashbar cycle-cross (read commuter) bike. It has nutted axels and no rack mount braze-ons.... I was told it would fit, and it does not. It can ONLY be used on quick-release wheeled bike. Sorry, it will be returned.

          Nashbar shipping

                This review is basically about Nashbar shipping. I' d love to write an actual review about the Blackburn universal rack I ordered but instead shipping send a Topeak Supertourist Rack!? I immediately called Nashbar, they credited original shipping cost & mail a $5 coupon towards a future purchase. So I can see accidently grabbing another Blackburn but how does one grab another manufacturer? Also I needed this rack ASAP and asked to pay for a new rack then credit my account when they received the Topeak. They declined and said I'd have to wait until they received the Topeak before they would send me the Blackburn I wanted.

                Bad experience Nashbar plus I still haven't receive my Blackburn rack original order placed on: August 25, 2013

                Comments about Blackburn EX-1 Rack Universal Fit - Closeout:

                This rack isn't designed for high end road bikes. I ride a carbon Giant TCR and this rack isn't engineered to fit bikes such as this.
                I commute 20 miles to work everyday. Due to shoulder and back issues a courier bag was not working out. I purchased this rack knowing it would not come out of the box and be useable. With a piece of clear plastic tube and a heavy duty zip tie threaded through it I was able to attach the rack to the seat post above the top tube. This allows a secure attach point and the tubing protects the frame.
                The rack is working out really well and outside of the issue of weight being located above the rear tire I couldn't be happier. PLUS it comes off in just a few seconds for the group ride.
