    Looking for a decent seatpost mounted rack.

    I'm looking for a decent quick release seatpost rack. Any recommendations?

    I was thinking about this one...

    Crap; all seatpost racks are crap. Get a real rack and you will be able to use real panniers or make your own out of 5gal buckets. What kind of bike do you have? If it's full suspension that may be a problem.

    I have a Giant Rincon. I'll just get a normal rear rack. Just thought I'd ask. Thanks.

    Not all post mounts are crap!

    I used this Delta Post Haste for a while. It worked very well and seemed pretty sturdy. It is rated for 25 pounds and has got your quick release.

    I ended up giving it to my roommate who only had one bike that he road to school and mtb. He finds this to be very functional, being able to remove the rack for trail riding.

    Its all about what you need dude!

    Topeak Products

    Take a look at the topeak racks and bags (topeak.com). I use the MTX seat post rack with an MTX bag that slides on the rack via an integrated system. No bungies needed. They also make pannier side attachments that install in grooves on the side of the rack. Their bags use these sides to hold zip-out panniers. Stuff works great. It's limited in weight it can support (25 pounds?) but good for commuting. They also make a fender that installs under the rack. Very clever and sturdy engineering.

    i have a topeak that bounces between my commuter and my FS but i am fixing to put regular racks on the front and rear of my commuter (think they are a bit more versatile)

    I had that POS walmart one and it broke the 1st night. I got one from Performance that I could hang bags on, and it was nice and sturdy..
