I just finished mounting up a set of 1440s to Happy Trails racks. I'm pretty happy with the results but they are a bit portly. The set up ended up being 44.5in wide. I still have my wife's bike to do (with the HT racks and 1440s) but I might fab up different mounts to make it a wee bit narrower. I think I can get it down 2in or so.
Anyone else care to post up how wide their set up is?
