There is is/will be a 'puck kit' for the new mounting holes.
Allowing attachment to any flat backed panniers as I understand.

According to Berg earlier this week all the racks from he or Wolfman will be the new style from now on. He has a puck kit to mount flat-sided cases and there will also be an optional cross brace available to increase rigidity.

The new style almost has me sold. Does anyone have any input/opinion on the available crossbrace? Pics?

I use the TT racks with wolfman bags, TT racks seems sturdy and I like the way they mount and have a x brace and hand grips for wifey...wolfman's "other" mount system works just fine with the wolfman bags. Actually they have the best mounting system I have seen on soft bags.

Why would you want symmetrical?
That would only make it excessively wide on the right non exhaust side.
Wolfman racks are as tight as they can be on each side.
The nature of racks/saddles bags themselves makes for an excessively wide bike as it is.
I have got hung up on trees, picnic tables lol and other bikes on my fairly narrow Wolfman.
It is a tidy set-up though...

Symmetrical

I asked berg recently if he'd be willing to make a set of symmetrical racks for those with a narrow exhaust. Unfortunately he's to busy to tackle such a request...good problem to have these days. I'm still going to buy a set. To me they perform well (had a set on my last bike) and look good when not being used to hold bags. I'll probably try and find someone who can modify them locally.
