BONTRAGER BackRack Lightweight Rear Carrier Rack
|Options||Black - USUALLY AVAILABLE WITHIN 3-10 DAYS|
Turn any bike, including most road bikes (with the included adapters), into a touring or commuting beast. The Backrack Lightweight rack will fit to frames with or without rack mounts. If your frame doesn't have eyelets, use the adaptors included to attach the rack to the skewer of the rear wheel and to the rear brake calliper bolt. The alloy, Interchange bag-compatible Backrack Lightweight rack is Bontrager's lightest without sacrificing strength or utility.

Bontrager BackRack Lightweight review, road.cc, January 2016 (see here for full review):
"Bontrager's BackRack Lightweight is apparently aimed at commuters, and while it's a generally capable beast of burden, I would be more inclined to suggest its sleek, slender profiles are most complementary to steel-tubed sportive/audax bikes on calorie-controlled diets.
The rack itself looks stunning. Fashioned from 6061 aluminium, its TIG welds are uniformly neat throughout and it all feels reassuringly solid. Ours has a gloss black powder coat but there's also a silver version.
Ultimately, there are better â€" dare I say cheaper â€" designs for commuters and tourists looking to use bigger panniers, rack bags and/or cart heavier payloads. However, this should be high on your list if you're looking to fit a proper rack to a racier bike.
A good rack with a brilliantly engineered fitting kit, particularly suited to lightweight audax/sportive bikes."
