Needed this as the rack supplied on my Dawes Galaxy Plus allowed the panniers to rest on the disk brake assembly pushing it onto the wheel ring. Quite a poor product combination. This rack was far better it has good fixing points for my (Arkel) pannier, a couple of points to for an elasticated hook at the bottom, and a bar with plenty of space for the top locking hooks/mechanism. It has taken standard and heavy (shopping) loads without any problems. Reasonablypriced and the supplier delivered it well packed, within a couple of days by the method I wanted (post office). Good product and good service.
