Strengths:    The rack will hold any style of clip.
I've put it on bikes with and without disc breaks.
I've loaded it down with well over 50 pounds without issue.
Solid powdercoat.

Weaknesses:    fussy to attach the first time, once you know what you're doing it is obvious how to.

Bottom Line:   
I have used my Nice Rack for several years now on several different bikes. While it is fussy to attach this rack to a bike, the height is more easily adjusted than on any other rack I've used. I tend to carry mountains of crap with me commuting and while lesser racks (boryueh racks for example) twist and flex-- the nice rack is stiff and reliable. The powdercoat has held up amazingly well. I ride year round in Minnesota and so far the rack is showing no signs of rust to my surprise.

On niners FB page they have pictures of a RLT 9 with a rear rack. I am hoping someone can ID it or push me in the right direction. These ... Read More »

Hanging bike w/ dropper from rack

Hi guys, I just got my Giant Contact yesterday. I love it...am one of those guys who can't (read that as don't want to) ride without one. Occasionally, I have to put my bike on a rear rack and I use an adaptor because my Epic has a odd shaped front triangle. So the question is where should ... Read More »

One arm or two for a roof rack?

It seems obvious that a wheels-on roof rack with two arms would be more secure than one with just one arm. What do you think? Would a Rocky Mounts Brass Knuckles or a Thule Sidearm be as secure as a 1up or an Inno Tire Hold? Does having just one arm stress the front wheel too much?Read More »

Not happy with Yakima Holdup 2 hitch rack

Bought the rack from REI when i had a 26" FS bike. It worked perfectly, but the cable lock was my only complaint - its too short. Recently bough a 27.5" bike and not liking this rack anymore. I'm actually pissed because they claim it works for bikes with up to a 29" wheel. Front wheel doesn't fi ... Read More »
