Those are some good ideas that I am going to consider for testing. If all goes well I'll include them as options on the new racks.

While I also like the square tube, the reason I'm considering switching to round tube, is that there will be a lot less grinding after welding.

Tom also built it with the RotoPax option. It is very sturdy and it works in conjunction with my Dirt bagz racks (just had to remove a slight bit of the plastic fender on the left side, non noticable). I would highly recommend this rack if you need a larger rack for longer trips.

Hopefully Tom didn't get flooded from Irene like many Vermont towns like my hometown of Bethel VT. oclv
Thanks OCLV, nothing makes me happier than a satisfied customer! Glad to hear that it worked with the Dirt Bagz racks.

I was lucky that I live on a hill and the house was unaffected by the storm. The bridge a half mile away didn't fare so good.

I'm hoping to get over to Bethel to check out the Class 4 and Legal Trails with a friend soon.
