Basic rack for a decent price,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Instructions showed how to assemble rack but not to fit, picture on the back of the box showed parts that were not included in the kit (2 circle clips for attaching to the frame), but being a relatively simple item i managed to fit it with a small modification to the seat post bolt. Also fitted same kit to a different bike using clips I already owned with success. Tried my Pannier bags on today and the narrowness of the lower part of the rack means that they can rub against the rear wheel, possibly would be more suitable to smaller pannier bags than the Raleigh triple pannier I own. The rack is solid with no rattling and the spring clip is strong enough to hold items securely.

Thanks for the review. i bought one to fit to a mountain bike which it did with a bit of jiggling. i used to build bikes and so know my way around these things but, like you, it came minus two bolts for frame attachment. it had two other spare bolts which did not fit - too big. i think they may have packed the wrong blts as other bolts would have fitted but were fro the frame of the rack. however, it did come with the circle clips. Fortunately, i had some spare bolts so no problem. Fits well now and no rattles. i agree with the narrowness part of the rack you describe and i think the pump attachment could prove awkward if the pump fell off during use of the bike - likely to fall into the rear wheel from its position. in all, not a bad rack, a bit fiddly but not too bad.
