Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Light, robust, fit for purpose.
Bought this with the RX beam rack bag to use on a lightweight winter audax bike for some light touring. Together the rack and the bag make a great combo:
The rack is strong and durable and fits on to the stem simply (with some adjustment to the packing spacers), it is very light and there was no movement or flexing when riding. The side racks (dis)assemble effortlessly. The rubber flexible straps could be useful but I did not use.
When used with the RX beam rack bag the bag slides and clips in to place securely and simply making it easy to take on and off the bag when not riding. The side racks provide hoops to fix the fold out pannier pockets on to securely.
Rack specifically designed for use with RX beam rack bag so I have no idea how useful it would be with another bag, bear in mind that the RX bag is fairly small and the rack is designed for this size bag. Separate review of RX beam rack bag elsewhere.
Overall I would recommend this combination for light touring, when not requiring much luggage.
