Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Takes a little bit of time to install correctly (two brackets must be bent to match your exact frame geometry, and they should be bent identically) but this is true of most bike racks. Once installed, it's a perfect fit with my rear disk brakes. There's a rear tab for mounting a European style tail light (2 bolts w/30 mm or 50 mm spacing), and those tail lights are not generally available in U.S. stores but can be found on the Internet; American style lights can also be mounted with a little creativity (cable ties, duct tape). Overall, an excellent product, especially when paired with an instantly-mountable Topeak luggage bag (just slide it in and click it into place).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Dependable I commute to work 5 days a week, 10 miles each way. I haul a change of clothes, laptop, repair tools/parts, and my lunch all on this rack and it's showing no sign of weakness. My previous (and more expensive) rack broke less than a year after I got it from the daily grind of 25-30 pounds, rough roads, and no shocks. This rack has held up beautifully. I have no doubt it can handle much more load than I put on it. My panniers are quick release so they have a little play in them allowing them to rub the black paint off the rack in a couple spots, but there's no sign of corrosion or flaking. I can't imagine a rack having paint that wouldn't come off with that much rubbing though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice rack! This rack system is awesome. I had it mounted by REI, due to the negative comments on how difficult it could be, they didnt even charge me an installation fee and it was done on the spot. I ride a Novarra Aspen mountain bike with disk brakes and needed the topeak system for when commuting to work. I was concerned it would limit me on the trail but when riding the single track without the bag attatched you dont even know the rack is there. I highly recommend this system for anyone looking to hall gear to and from work or on long recreational rides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality While this was a little difficult to install because I had to bend and push things to get them to line up with the screw holes on my bike, I have had no issues with it since. Easily accepts the Novarra Panniers. I would recommend using some locktite on the screws as I has to tighten them after only 50 or so miles of use. Only unfortunate thing I can think of is using anything non-Topeak MTX panniers prevents me from using the Topeak TrunkBags as they don't appear to clear the pannier brackets when you slide it in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't fit Beautifully well-made product, but wasn't tall enough to fit my Novarra Buzz (size "L"). Also, the rack has a rather large, square area where it bolts to the holes near the wheel hub which in turn requires a large flat area to mate against.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Match with Novara Single Pannier Setting up Hybrid Bike as a commuter. Picked up this Topeak Rack & a pair of Novara 'Round Town Single Bike Pannier. Makes riding easier by putting tools, tubes, pump, as well as a backpack on the bike. Had the bike shop install the rack, so I don't know about the install, but it does block the seat tube rear reflectors, the bike mechanic installed the reflector on the rack. I'm happy with this purchase and am happy with the Novara Panniers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent rack - can attach Super Flash I had to bend the brackets into a steep arch to fit my Marin Muirwoods, but it was easy to install and is on solid. I have a Planet Bike Super Flash tail light that I had been attaching to a strap on the MTX bag, but it bounces on the end of the rack and makes quite a racket. I bought a Rear Rack Bracket from Planet Bike (part #3108) and it fits the two vertical holes on the bracket on the back. Works great, but with the light attached there may not be enough room for a fender[...]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good rack, needed longer bolts I bought this when my rear rack for my old bike wouldn't clear the disc brakes on my new one. The only problem was getting the rack to share the same eyelet with 2 fender struts on each side; I got 2 longer bolts from a dept. store and I have been enjoying this sturdy rack to carry my panniers ever since.

Will this rack work with a bike with no eyelets?  If not, do you recommend a rack that I can use with panniers?  I have a Topeak MTX rack bag with panniers that I would like to use with another bike without eyelets.

Asked by: IlliniPaul
The Explorer MTX Tubular Rack with Disc Mounts requires a frame with eyelets to mount properly. To mount a rack on a frame without eyelets you need to purchase additional hardware. Your local bike shop can assist you with your specific configuration.
