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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Topeak MTX Side rails for Topeak Racks Proved to be very functional addition to the MTX-V type rack I use on a foldable bike. These rails can be easily un-installed to make packing rack easier for a foldable bike. It is however important to make sure the rack is very secure on seat post to avoid the rack turning into the wheel (damage spokes). I can use either a Topeak MTX bag or 2-20 liter pannier bags using this attachment, keep loaded weight to specified limits though.

Questions & Answers

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
