Stuck on rack,gaurds and shorter flipped stem
Is it me or does the rack look weird on that?
Seat post rack, idea is to take it off at week end
Ah right,now it makes sense.How's the bike anyway? Take it you're enjoying it?
Lot better to ride not had chance to ride since i put on shorter stem , it was a bit of a stretch and could feel it on back but a lot easier to ride, carbon forks have taken the buzz off the roads for sure.
I love the flower you have attached to it
I have the Carrera model down from that one, the Virtuoso, and what I wouldn't give for carbon forks sometimes. When stiff is just too stiff and your fillings work their way out on the rough tarmac.
Looking good that one!

Yes i have a TDF 02 and that was harsh.
had to put gel pads on the handle bars.
Front mudflap is not long enough.
2/10. Must try harder.
I'd be slightly worried about anything on the rack blocking the rear light, but that's not so much of a concern now most of us are travelling in daylight, I guess!
Looks very practical!
the panniers have a clip on light and just ordered this..
How much weight will the rack take? I've got a Giant SCR A1 that is nearly all carbon including a carbon seatpost but I'd love to be able to use panniers rather than a rucksack.
Never EVER clamp anything onto a carbon fiber part unless it is another carbon fiber part. This includes clamping it into a workstand using the seat post.
Carbon fiber crushes when force is applied and will fail immediately.
27 years in the industry
Quoted from yahoo answers, i think you cannot apply force in a direction it is not designed for.
And its rated for 22 llbs(10 kg)
Interesting on what people have said on a seat post rack, i might hang on to my standard rack just in case.
Maybe look at a saddle bag?
Thanks for that!! I'll stick to the rucksack then!
