Jandd front rack - hitting frame
« on: April 16, 2007, 05:38:54 pm »
I have a Jandd extreme front rack on an REI Randonee. When you turn the wheel the rear edge of the Jandd contacts the down cable braze-ons of the Randonee along the down tube. This is not a problem for steering because you can still turn the wheel farther than you would ever need to. But I could see this being a serious problem if the bike fell over loaded and the wheel turned, possibly shearing off the braze-on.

Has anyone else had this problem? Any thoughts?

Thanks

Funny, I was going to post the same thing, but subbing "Volpe" for "Randonee". Same thing happened, so I took it off and am re-considering my options.

If somebody happens to know what they are, tell me!

Ride safe,
