Overall, this rack is a great option if your bike doesn't have the eyelets or braze-ons that most pannier racks require
Note - first shipment only came with 3 bolts, amazon quickly issued a return which delayed me enjoying these for 4 days but of course, amazon was incredibly helpful, gave me $5 credit and upgraded shippingpurchased this rack with pannier support because i previously owned the nashbar weatherproof panniers and wanted a rack that i could easily install for 5 days a week for my commute to work and remove on the weekends for longer rides in the bay area - this is on a cannondale synapse (aluminum frame) - i put a macbook and a change of clothes in the panniers which seldomly exceeds 10 lbs and so this was a perfect solution for me
I did take an 1/8inch thick rubber sheet and cut it down to 2 x 3
5 to wrap around my seatpost before bolting on the rack - i did this for two reasons: (1) i wanted to ensure that the rack did not scratch my frame/seatpost (2) i wanted to help prevent it from sliding from side to side - the fear i had with this rack was that it could potentially shift side to side and get caught in my spokes (had read this on forums)
