This rack is great for rando riding, gravel grinding, commuting, touring, etc. with a handlebar bag. I've used the rack on 3 different bikes now, all in the touring/cyclocross category. The mounting is strong, since it's attached to brake bosses and fork crown. The integrated decaleur is perfect for Swift and other handlebar bags (I've used it with the Swift large and small).
I've ridden probably 4,000 miles with the rack and a handlebar bag. It's great for cue sheets, snacking while riding, and flexible storage space. Great for small errands!
Can withstand a bit of flex to fit larger clearance tires, since it's steel (steel is more resilient to bending than aluminum). It took a bit of flex to fit my wife's 26" tire Soma Saga (clearance for 2.1+" tires). I haven't used the VO cage that you can get for it, but I bet it would be useful if you wanted a small rack-top space.Pros:
Great for rando-style handebar bags
Integrated bag-mount system (decaleur)
Fits CX bikes without dedicated rack mountsCons:
You need cantilever bosses -- won't fit bikes with disk or road brakes.Would Buy Again:
