  • Ah, so glad I'm not the only one who struggled. I had the same problems with poorly machines eyelets too. Can't face disassembly to fit washers though... it seems sturdy enough once it's on, how has yours held up?

  • It held up fine during a week of touring in France. That included some disassembly due to French train rules, which was a PITA as the ovalhead bolts are very soft and prone to rounding off. It's plenty sturdy but perhaps not for easy swapping around.

    I got a matching rear rack because I am a glutton for punishment and matchy, matchy. Replacement bolts should arrive today.

  • What was the explanation? I know the SNCF doesn't allow recumbents, trailers or tandems, but I can't see why a rack would make the bike non "standard".
