    Rack system??

    Just building up a Troll 22 inch.
    I am waiting on parts but looking for a front and back rack system for my new baby.
    One issue I have is that I have size 14 shoes so the rear pannier will have to be able to sit far enough back to give me room to pedal.
    I don't have a problem if I need to modify it either, which I had to do on my last bike.

    I have looked through a lot of threads and have not yet decided which one will work for me?

    Just looking for suggestions?

    Here is what I am looking at:
    -Civia Market Tall rear
    -Nitto Mt Campee Rear rack and Nitto M18 front rack
    -Racktime Universal rear rack and racktime Topit universal front mount rack
    -and the Surly rear rack.
    Saw a Bontrager rear rack for disc that was OK.

    The Tubus Logo and Cosmo are specifically designed to put the panniers further back in order to maximize heal clearance.

    I also have size 14 feet. I recently bought an Axiom Journey Adjustable rack for use on my Karate Monkey. The pannier mounts are well behind the struts, allowing good clearance for large feet. It's cheap, too!
