    Pannier racks for SS

    Hi guys,

    Has anyone attached a pannier rack to their singlespeed bike? If so, which one?

    I have a 09 giant bowery and want some panniers for some gear while commuting. The problem is there are no holes near the dropouts or seatstay/seatpost junction where most racks seem to attach. Any ideas?

    Would it be safe to drill a small hole in each dropout for attachment? Big enough for a small bolt, but small enough and centred enough (away for the edges) to avoid weakening the area.

    Thanks
    Brad

    thanks mtnbeer, but i've tried some similar clamps (plumbers clamps from the hardware store). They seem to flex alot, resulting in the rack and panniers swaying. are these stronger?
