No good deed goes unpunished. I ordered a rack for the Sherpa through Happy Trails, the simple tubular one, and when I took it out of the box it seemed to be exactly what I wanted, smaller and unobtrusive without looking like I was trying to haul a caribou on the thing. After multiple tries and following directions, trial fitting and pulling everything in the way off the bike, the rack just did not fit! The front mounts were way too wide, the through bolts coming nowhere near the bike's frame. I called Happy Trails and we went over the whole thing but it was just wrong. I sent it back and they were fine about it, no hassles from Happy Trails. But dang! I wanted that rack. Merry frickin' Christmas.
Start each day with a smile and get it over with.
