Strengths:    Light

Weaknesses:    Breaks at welding points when subjected to vibrations or loads.

Bottom Line:   
Aluminium is the wrong metal to build a rack out of. Although light, it is much stiffer than steel and therefore snaps when subjected to repeated loads. Mine broke after a few months of use commuting along uneven cycle tracks.
