i cycletoured with one of these racks 100,000 (!) kilometer, with average at least 15 kilo lugguge on it and it never let me down. so its quite a mystery to me why nowadays those steel tubus racks -which are 3 times more expensive then blackburn and have only 10 years guarantee- are suddenly so populair…

I have to agree, planning a tour and suddenly my Blackburn with at least 5,000 touring miles on it is considered light duty??

I had one of these fail on me on a moderately loaded overnight trip on a gravel rail-trail. One of the aluminum welds failed, and I had to bungee it together to limp home. I’m currently using a Burley Moose Rack (also for compatibility with our Piccolo trailerbike), which is NOT going to break. If I didn’t have the trailerbike constraint I’d probably go with Tubus. Doesn’t seem like a good idea to make lightweight racks out of aluminum.

I too have had a weld fail down the bottom. I tried to hold the rack together with hose clamps with no luck.

Generally held up well on many rough off road tours here in Australia.

I had one of these on a 700c hybrid (sadly long since stolen) and it survived many rough- road tours, including the UK coast to coast (Yorkshire- Liverpool across the Pennines), the trans- Cambrian (across Wales off-road) and several Scottish tours. In between times it was often loaded with c20KG of shopping. No qualms with durability whatsoever. The only downside was that being a lightweight rack, large panniers would flop into the rear wheel as there isn’t much frame there to keep them out but this isn’t really what it was designed for. I usually used a 30l drybag on top anyway. With 700c wheels and 37c knobbly tyres, there was plenty of clearance, despite this being marketed for 26″ wheels. Would buy another in a heartbeat.
