Install a Blackburn Ex-1 Disc Rear Rack on your mountain bike and start haulin’. This rack has the clearance needed for disc brakes so you can use your heavy-duty mountain bike for loaded touring or around-town errands.
- Clearance for 700c and 26in wheels
- Compatible with copilot child seats
- Item #BLB0068
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
What's included besides the rack itself:
- Extra long quick release
- six 10mm screws
- two 25mm screws
- eight nylock nuts
- two extenders
- two 1/2 inch seat-stay clamps and two 9/16 inch seat-stay clamps (for if your bike does not have seat-stay "braze-on" mounts)
- reflector bracket
- allen wrench
The rack is strong but very lightweight. It's handled everything I've used it for so far, mostly carrying a crate full of groceries.
The installation was straightforward. I only had one problem in that the provided seat-stay clamps would not work on my bike since my bike has 3/4 inch seat-stays. But that was an easy fix because those clamps are an inexpensive part available at most hardware stores.
