Rated 4 out of 5 by from the missing piece I was wondering how to keep the sides from getting stuck in the spokes. Oddly, this product was not listed on the Topeak website for the matching rack. While shopping at REI I stumbled on this. Bought it; installed it. Now my commute is much nicer. It was fairly easy to install. It's light. The side bags attache to it well. It keeps the side bags secure and from getting caught in the spokes.

will this frame work with a mtx rack mounted to the seat post on a full suspension mtn bike or does the frame need to be anchored to the bike as well???   

Asked by: billz575
It does not need to be anchored to the bike frame as well. However, an important note about beam-type racks (the kind that this rack frame works with): They attach to the seatpost on the bike so their total weight limit is only 15 pounds, so loaded panniers on that type of rack is not a good idea.

I can't tell how this is going to work from the pictures.  Do you have a pic of it in use on a bike? I have a Topeak rack with a slide trunk, and want to add panniers but can't attach to the rack while slide off trunk is on the rack. Need to use both.

The Topeak MTX Dual Side Bike Rack Frame is desinged to work with Topeak MTX BeamRacks or EX BeamRacks. The link below will provide you with a picture of a BeamRack with the side frame attached. http://www.rei.com/product/743341/topeak-rx-beamrack-with-side-frame-e-type
