Blackburn's XR-1 Rack features a taller design for more tire clearance and a better fit on 700c-wheel road bikes and hybrids. It's built tough, too, with TIG-welded 6061-T6 aluminum, stainless-steel hardware and a built-in platform that doubles as a fender to protect you and your cargo.
Features and Information
Accepts reflectors and taillights (sold separately).
Brackets too short to attach to frame on a Cannondale Quick. Had to cut the brackets & weld an additional 4" to make it longer so that it would reach the frame to keep the rack level.
Also had to grind a small bit of metal from the stays so that it would line up with the holes on the frame at the rear wheel.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
