Best rack for road bikes without eyelets?

Posted on
  • I'm looking to fit a rear rack for touring and shopping purposes to my steel road bike.

    Unfortunately the bike doesn't have rack eyelets so I'm just wondering if anyone has recommendations for a good rack that will work using the quick release skewer instead? I'm not looking to carry really heavy loads but a lot of the options I've seen while out and about do look quite flimsy?

  • Use a Carradice saddle bag - Audax or Nelson - with the Bagman QR support clamped to your saddle rails. Much better.

  • Tubus Disco looks decent if you are set on panniers. It’s designed for disc brakes but you could probably bodge it.

  • I toured round the US and Canada with a rack attached with p clips. They'll cost you about a fiver. Then pick whatever rack suits your budget.
