    This rack looks bulletproof. Impressive looking piece. I had a minor problem with fitting allen wrenches to the supplied parts, so I just substituted other nuts/bolts and it is fine.

        Comments about Blackburn TRX-2 Ultimate Commuter Rear Rack:

        You might think a bike rack is a bike rack, and there's not much difference between one and another, new or old, but you'd be wrong. Racks have come a long way. My panniers kept getting caught in my spokes, and I noticed other commuters' racks seemed to have additional structures to prevent this, apparently. I'm so glad I updated/upgraded. To be able to quickly and easily pop the bag on and off, worry-free, has been a nice daily life improvement. Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference.

          I have an older CANNONDALE that I wanted a rack for and wasn't sure if this purchase would fit but to my surprise it fit and works very well.

          Comments about Blackburn TRX-2 Ultimate Commuter Rear Rack:

          This rack puts the panniers further aft than any other rear rack I can find. The primary reason to buy this rack is if you have a short wheelbase bike and/or have heel-clearance issues. Otherwise you don't want this rack as it is very heavy (1300 grams, almost 3 pounds), the U-lock holder is known to break, and the inner fender design is poor and also known to break. Both Blackburn and Nashbar would warranty it but the rack is discontinued so you may not be able to get a direct replacement. I also would have preferred the non-disc version for better clearance, the spacers for the disc version are 25mm (1 inch) long per side. That said, I have a 20" wheel folding bike so heel clearance is critical, and this rack is the solution, it puts the panniers WAY aft, completely behind the rear axle, and that's with the panniers in the "low" position between the two big vertical struts; I could still move them about couple of inches aft if needed. The downside is the rack extends several inches behind the (20") rear tire and is tall so makes the bike larger when folded. With this bike, the metal stay strips included with the rack are not long enough to reach the seatstay braze-ons which are very low. Jandd makes extra long stays (package says 16" but they measured 15"), they are long enough but are too wide to fit in the slots on the rack (3/4" instead of 5/8" wide). I could have used washers to space the stays out of the slots, but the better solution was to leave the strips straight (no stress concentration at a bend) and attach them to the rack directly to the horizontal tube on the top deck (the larger tube that is part of the front vertical support) using 1/2" inside diameter P-clamps (also known as wiring clamps). Most wiring clamps this size are plastic or plated steel. Go to a marine (boating) supply store, they have rubber-covered stainless steel ones that are perfect, about $1.30 each. The nuts and bolts that come with the rack will work but you need a little larger washers to fit the large clamp holes and stay slots. I may replace with larger diameter bolts and nuts. I hope this all helps your decision or installation.
