    Pt1 Can you put rear pannier racks on Haro Mary SS

    As title says, Can you put rear pannier racks on Haro Mary SS?

    If so can anyone point me to picks or retailers products? I bought the Mary as a commuter but then realized it doesn't have pannier hole things???

    Thanks in advance

    Start with www.topeak.com they have heaps of racks that mount to your seatpost and are well trusted.

    Seatpost racks are okay for road-going purposes. If you ever use it for doing off-road bikepacking, you'll have to put in for something else (I like Epic Designs packs).

    You'd want one of the ones with the drop-down side wings. The different types (A/E/V) are different angles for different height so the rack sits right on the particular frame. I think it is done by frame size, but it looks like you could do fine with the E type or possibly the A.

    by the way, i don't know what you're putting in these large bags, but these are NOT intended for heavy loads.

    You don't need the pannier hole mounts to mount the rack. There are rubberized brackets that wrap around the frame that will allow you to bolt on the racks. I believe someone makes a bracket that will fit around your seatpost too. Maybe just look for brackets online or go to the hardware store. There's always zipties and bailing wire!!!

    I put an "Explorer disc" on my 1x1, just used a few brackets the guy at the shop gave me. I think the rack was about $35.

    Seatpost mounted racks are junk IMHO. Can carry much weight and bounce a lot.

    Check out the "Cold Springs" or "Sherpa" models.
    They are expensive but worth it.
    Avail. DISC, ROAD, MTB, or 29"

    This is a Delta post mount that I picked up from a lbs for about $30. First thing I did was replace the cheap aluminum bolts with steel ones.

    Who doesn't like a nice 'rack'

    What bags are they trail_junkie? Do you have the side protection bars to keep the wheel off them?

    The bags are made by Arkel, www.arkel-od.com, they're the XM-28 mountain panniers. Really well made bags. The rack does have the side bars to keep the bags out of the wheel.
