Topeak Rack Qs
« on: June 01, 2019, 01:54:27 pm »
Hi, Does anyone have experience with Topeak racks and bags?  I'm looking to get the MTX TRUNKBAG DXP bag with one of the following racks.  I have a hybrid bike with disc brakes, so I'm looking at disc brake model racks.

There's a lot of choice in Topeak racks, so I'm reaching out to anyone who has experience with them.

Considerations:

The DX models have a separate bar for panniers, but I'm not looking to get full on panniers atm as the trunk bag comes with saddle bags that fold up when not needed.  Do the bars on the DX models have any other use?
The "UNI" models have adjustable legs which seems like a good option as I'd like to set the legs lower as I've heard a lower centre of gravity of better for bike stability.

I'm also little concerned with the saddles bags either fouling with the wheels or interfering with peddling.  Anyone have experience with this?

Also, Anyone have any experience with the springs on Topeak racks?

I'm open to suggestions as well  Thanks everyone!
