StarStarStarStarStar Solid and flexible

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Light and lots of options for strapping panniers and other ad hoc loads.

Cons

Maybe not the heaviest duty, but strong enough and doesn't weigh 20lbs.

Other Thoughts

I'd buy again, no question.

StarStarStarStarStar Great rack

by
Ownership: a month

Pros

Easy to install. Solid and durable. Wide support brackets to spread the width of loads across panniers.

Cons

The attachment brackets at the front could be more sophisticated, but I suppose they need to be adaptable to many different bikes.

Other Thoughts

I use my rack to support my batteries on my electric bike. It is plenty strong to mount the batteries to the side rails and the wide spacing of the down tubes lets me spread out the load on the battery support.

StarStarStarStarStar Sturdy and Convenient

by
Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Easy to install
The Topeak MTX system makes it very convenient to attach the bag and remove it quickly from the rack
Allows the use of a trunk bag as well as additional panniers
Good looking and solid
Fairly lightweight

Cons

The MTX bag rattles on the rack when going down the road. This can probably be alleviated by a piece of rubber or cloth rim tape around the rack where the bag clips on, but haven't tried it yet.
