Anyone use them for their commute? Am wondering if there are some that are pannier friendly.
I use a Bontrager seatpost rack.Gary the No-Trash Cougar said:They do and their are. Some people complain that when you take a turn fast, the weight can cause it to swing around and twist your seatpost. Others don't have this problem. I suppose if your seatpost collar is nice and tight, it probably won't be a problem.
That's what I have and it holds tight even when only one side is loaded with a 12pack of beverages. Everytime I read someone complain they don't hold tight, it's the QR version.jayfromqns said:...It uses hex bolt top clamp on to the seatpost....
I'm going to have to argue that piont. I love my seatpost rack because I can easily take it off and put it back on whenever I want with hardly any effort and no tools. I'm actually going to get a new version of the rack I already have from Topeak. I bought it for a mountain bike I got for free that really never fit me and molded a light onto the back where the reflector originally was. If you want something simple and easy to switch between multiple racks go with a seatpost mount.Normbilt said:Bolt on regular racks are more Stable.
The only reason to use a Seatpost rack would be for a Full Suspension Bike.
Bolt on racks are cheaper
