Bontrager's BackRack Deluxe S is made for mountain and hybrid bikes with frame sizes 18 inches and under, and road bike frames 54cm and under. This durable and light rack is perfect for turning your bike into a commuter and errand-runner. Single-bolt strut mounts allow for maximum adjustablility and ease of installation. Plus, the BackRack Deluxe boasts side rails, making it compatible with standard trunk bags and panniers as well as Bontrager's Interchange models (sold separately).
I wanted a rack that had offset rails for panniers that didn't interfere with a trunk rack and fit my electra townie 21d. The standard electra rack is fine, but didn't meet the above requirement and seemed really long off the back tire. This fit with no modifications. I have two cheap blinkies that fit well on the rear plate as well. Nice option for mounting a dynamo powered rear light too.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
