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".
Some SNCF trains don't have bike racks or parking and require une housse for bike transportation.
Most bike bags don't assume you have sizeable front rack and won't close unless you remove it.
