    Rack on an El Mariachi? Moose rack for Burly Picolo

    Hi. I have a Salsa El Mar with the alternator dropouts.
    I searched and found salsa's rack that plays nicely with the alternators, and then I could get the seatpost collar with the rack mounting points.

    I want to mount the Burley "Moose Rack" which can then take the kid's piccolo trailer bike.

    Has anyone tried the basic mounting idea used with the salsa rack for a different rack? Basically spacers and longer pivot bolts?

    Thanks!

    So I think I need the RK8031 bolt kit (or get the same at hardware store) and a salsa rack lock...

    OK, so I now I see that this will not work. The alternator dropout hoods are too wide and this rack is too strong/stiff to just bend out. Also, the rack would sit really high because the DO swing bolts are a few inches above where a rack would normally bolt on. The Alternator rack from Salsa must be a bit shorter in height than a standard rack. Bummer because this would have been awesome.
