    New question here. Ibera PakRak Bicycle Touring Carrier Plus+ IB-RA5 pro reviews?

    Amazon.com : Ibera PakRak Bicycle Touring Carrier Plus+ IB-RA5 (with disk brake mounts) Frame-mounted for heavier top & side loads (bag not included) : Bike Racks : Sports & Outdoors
    So I ordered this rack today and the reviews were pretty good from most on amazon.com. But has anyone here bought this rack for commuting/touring?

    Thanks!

    I have it. It's awesome.

    If flinched at paying $30 for a rack (the LBSs in Germany sell comparable racks for under $20), but I couldn't find anything comparable for less. I don't regret spending the money a bit.

    On yours do you know if the bolts are stainless steel or cheapies? I usually just replace all bolts with stainless bolts on my racks unless they already come with.

    No idea... They're some kind of shiny steel, but I'm not at all sure if they're stainless or not.

    FWIW, I live and commute close to the ocean, and bare steel rusts FAST here, and these haven't rusted, yet.
