I do like the new design. Very slick. What happened with the bottom lugs?

I thought you might benefit from a few cautionary tales, as you're just starting:

subybaja, sorry about that! I was probably in too much of a hurry when I listed. I went and fixed that. I certainly have nothing against Alaska and hope to ride there some day.

The bottom lugs have been replaced with black nylon spacers. This allows the rack to fit more easily with some of the side racks that are out there, and eventually with side racks that I am currently designing.

I haven't read the cautionary tales yet, but I sure look forward to it. Thanks for the links and the feedback! It's the only way of knowing what people want or don't want. - Tom
