I'm wondering if anyone might have a free load rack (either the seat stay mounted or seat tube mounted) they could lend me over the holiday period to put on my roadie? I am planning some riding and would really like to do an over nighter or two. Not really keen on using a backpack. It would just be nice to take some undies and a toothbrush ;)

Cheers
Victoria

I have one under-utilised Topeak model that's rated for 10kg carriage (max) that you are welcome to use. No side frames though.

Does your bike have carrier mounting points?

That looks perfect Weiyun. Can you just strap any bag to the top of it? All I need to carry in it is thongs and some really light clothing. I was thinking just like a dry bag strapped on would be a nice light option.

Thanks heaps guys!

Yes, you can strap whatever you want and it's perfectly fine for lightweight carriage and alloy seatpost. Otherwise I have a bag already strapped on it and you can make use of it. The model Hung has is one that's made for MTBs and I am not sure if there's any geometric differences and compatibility issues with the road model I have. Looks chunkier though.
