The Randonneur is light, strong, stable, and easy to install or remove. It attaches firmly to the seat rails with a quick release bracket and the front of the rack merely rests against the post with a rubberized clamp that is closed with a Velcro strap. Unequaled stability and strength. Weight: 1.09lbs / 17.46 oz. You will also need the Arkel Brooks adaptor if you have a Brooks or Anatomica saddle.

It took some adjustment to get this rack to ride quietly,and firmly in place. Once all the angle of the seatclamp and the bars of the seat were figured out, it stayed in place. The seatclamp take several twists to get the rack locked in place. I was able to carry five pounds of clutter in a racktop carrier over gravel roads and over rutted trails.

Excellent 6 kg rated rack that I was able to fit to the seat back of a FWD recumbent Cruzbike Silvio with only 120 mm straight seat back. it works well with the Arkel tailrider trunk ba.
