I'm looking for recommendations for a rear rack for a Giant Defy 2 2011 model.
All of the racks I've looked at have issues attaching the rack to the seat stays as the brake caliper is in the way and the bracket wont attach.
Can anyone recommend a solution?

I'm looking to buy a cycle rack for the back of my ford kuga and wondered what people reccomend? I dont want roof bars as I chance my car regularly so looking for something that can be used on more than 1 model of car. Looking to ideally carry 2 bikes
Hi All, I'm looking for a quick measurement of the distance between the mounts on either of these two racks. If you could spare a few minutes to give me a quick measurement, that'd be great, thanks!
Topeak rack final decision
Hi, Does anyone have experience with either of these two Topeak UNI racks?
Can you provide any tips on efficient use of cords and hooks for securing items to a Brompton rack? On occasions you may need to carry this or that on the rack and I found that I am not that good in securing the items to the rack. Too often found that I nearly lost my stuff and I hardly ever...
Considering fixing a front rack onto my carrera Crossfire 2 hybrid bike - any suggestions Re fixings as the fork (see pictures attached) as no eyelets - but does have a bolt @ the bottom ? Also mudguard eyelet space available - apologies I’m a rookie don’t know the correct “bike terms” yet. -...

Edit, Found some , they appear to classed as ’ Porteur’ racks ,
Ok, looking for roof bars for a Citroen Nemo (yes, I know, jealousy is cruel). They need to mount directly into fixing points (not rails). Does anyone have a Nemo and recommendation for me? Finally will Berlingo bars be compatible?
I'm not very optimistic but I thought I would ask - anyone know of a way of getting a front rack on a bike without the eyelets for it? I've got a B'twin Triban 3 which just has mounts for mudguards and that's it. Any suggestions? Thanks :)
I am considering getting a Tubus Cosmo rear rack (it’s wider and will hopefully fit a rear trunk bag) to replace this. And hope it fits my bike. Rear light not included. Apart from being used every day for 4 years, it’s as new. Very solid. Looking for £50 plus p&p or collect from Hove.
The heads of the hex bolts fixing my pannier rack to the bike frame have light rust on them. They were fitted at my LBS so I've ordered some A2 black stainless steel ones.
I was wondering if I should use Threadlocker or prevent them coming loose or Copaslip to prevent them seizing?
I have a KMX Cobra, which luggage rack will fit with a disk brake please, any pictures would be appreciated, kmx pannier holders are a bit out of my range, I just want to.put a bag on top of the rack")
Any recommendations for a rear light/reflector combo that will attach to the pannier rack in place of the reflector (see photos)? Preferably ones that will clip on/off and have USB charging.

I'm thinking about purchasing an action camera which I will have rear facing for safety. I'm considering this:
I'm wondering if I can use the handlebar mount on my pannier rack. The diameter of the tubing looks too small for the mount but I could wrap it in electrical insulation tape...
I'm looking for a bit of help/advice please. We've been gifted for Christmas a Saris Sentinel 2 rear mounted bike rack to fit onto our Focus hatchback car. All appears well, but I imagine that the number plate and lights will be obscured when the 2 bikes are loaded.
I understand that we'd...
Mrs CB continues to amaze, and seems to have taken ownership of my M3L for commuting duties. Already fitted with an S-Bag, it seems there is not quite enough space for PE kit as well, so she resorted to a rucksack this week.
I figured I'd fit a rear rack, but am somewhat loathe to for out £70...
good evening all
I am looking for a pump to fit my rear rack.
The bike itself is a Dawes Horizon and has a rear rack fitted, probably as standard.
The rack has the nipples? To fit a pump. The nipples are 335mm apart but I am having trouble finding something that will fit and was hoping the...
Recently carrying even my little messenger bag with the bare minimum has become extremely uncomfortable in this heat, so I was going to get a Super C pannier or two but sadly my oversized rack won't take them. I could get a pair of small Ortlieb panniers for a good price from SJS but the shiny...
But can it be lowered? Tortec Expedition.
My plan, is to ask Pam's dad to squish the tubing up to the weld where all the tubes meet then drill another 6mm hole thereby lowering the thing by about 2 inches.
Any metallurgist's here think this would cause issues? (besides warrantee issues)
As there are no mudguard mounting points on the ROSE multi-road SL2000, I will obtain one of the seat post clamps for securing the top fitting of a rack. P clips should suffice for the bottom fitting of the stays.
Someone posted a link for these seat post clamps, but I cannot find it now on here.
As per title, I was looking for a bit of advice on what works and what doesn't. I have seen one that has a ramp that would allow Mrs Slick to load it herself as it's too heavy otherwise. I would be doing most of the lifting so not too sure if that's a necessity or not. As usual any advice...
Especially interested if the bike was a 20" wheeled bike such as the Frog 52 or Isla bikes Beinn small 20" bike. What rack did you use and how well did it fit? Worth doing?
We're thinking our son could carry a very light bag on it when touring. Just a few toy cars or something to keep him...
