    Comments about Blackburn TRX-1 Ultimate Touring Rack:

    This rack is wonderfully built. It has lots of attachment points and is very light weight. I'd call it more of a commuter rack than a touring rack since the top deck is narrow. If it has fault, it is it's limited range of fit. I tried it on 3 different bikes and it only fit one. This could easily be fixed with Toba T Twist style Arms. That being said, if it fits, its a great choice!

    Commuting and Touring. Rack allows me to keep panniers farther back and out of way of shoes. Solid weld and construction. Steel is recommended for touring but these rival any for the $$$!!! Great deal.

      Bought this to add onto my recumbent for an upcoming tour. Decent value...lots of places to bungee your panniers to...and more versatile than some other racks I have bought in the past

        Got this for my Diamondback hybrid 700c. It arrived this afternoon and it took me only minutes to install with 4 bolts and an allen wrench. The rack is adjustable for distance to seat tube with flexible mount options (either attach to 2 points on side of frame or to brake mount). It should fit most road and hybrid bikes. Rack looks good and strong.

        Difficult to mount...

          Comments about Blackburn TRX-1 Ultimate Touring Rack:

          Seems to be a well-made, if heavy, touring rack. The problem is in the mounting- the bridge mount stay won't work on my cyclocross bike- it would be in the brake cable path, and the seat stay mounts are FAR too long... by 1.5-2" at least. I'll have to cut the rods and sleeve them, or come up with some other mounting solution. I can see this fitting on long-chainstay touring bikes, but not much else. Disappointed.
