    Product: Topeak MTX Super Tourist DX Rack with Side Bar for Side Pannier
    Ownership: a month
    Tech Knowledge: high

    Pros

    This is an EXCELLENT rack at a great price. The shipping was fast, three days to Melrose, MA. The extra rail around the top is great for multi-point anchoring of bungee cords. The spring clip on top makes for speedy and secure transport of small, light objects; i.e. sweater, rain jacket, book, etc. Very sturdy, yet very light. Spend the extra few bucks to get the spring AND rail around the top. Beautiful pairing with the Topeak MTX Trunk Bag DXP; quick attachment & removal, and MUCH better support for the panniers (side bags). I absolutely love it!

    Cons

    The only things to be aware of, that I would change to make it better are:
    1. I would make the mounting holes on the lower attaching bracket a little bigger; for some reason, the standard size bolt that I used was too big, I had to reem (he said reem) it out just a small bit to allow the bolt to pass through without any resistance and to be able to turn without catching.
    2. I would make the steel mounting brackets included with the rack out of a slightly thinner steel, a bit easier to manipulate and shape to conform to your bike and preferred mounting locations. For example, I have a full suspension bike, and I had to bend the brackets 90 degrees in order to attach them to my frame, and it was somewhat of a bits (sic) to bend them. I suppose heating them up with a torch would ease the shaping, but that may black up the nice shiny stainless steel, and who has a torch handy in their house, and who wants to go to that much trouble to mount this rack. Anyway, the brackets only hold the rack from moving back and forth, they don't actually support any downward weight of the rack and load, and the brackets can afford to be a bit more flexible without sacrificing any structural integrity (strength) of the rack and mounting system.
    3. This probably has more to do with the bag, rather than the rack, but I'll add it anyway, so potential buyers can be aware; I have a small under seat accessory pouch that I keep jam packed full of repair tools. It's pretty solid when everything is packed in there. When I attach the Topeak bag to the rack, and push it forward to latch, the front of the bag hits the under seat pouch and presents a bit of constant pressure on it while riding, so when I hit a bump, the bag actually unlatches from the rack. It hasn't actually fallen fully off of the bike yet, as I mounted it with a slight forward lean as recommended by Topeak, but that possibility does exist. To eliminate this, Topeak can and should make the latch a little bit longer, so it has to travel further down to unlatch, and would not come undone going over bumps.
    But, my overall rating for this rack is just short of perfect. With the above modifications, that is what it would be, and that is why I have given it 4 stars instead of 5.
