Arkel Randonneur Rack

Product Code
Current Stock

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.

***Carbon seatpost friendly!!!***

Works as promised, but took some figuring out.

I agree with above post that the instructions could have been more clear. But once installed on my wife’s road bike with carbon seat post, it proves to be a stable and strong rack for carrying light loads on her frequent day trips.

Excellent rack for century rides

The previous two reviews are correct that you should take the extra time to make sure the rack is properly secured to your bike in a level position. Once that is assured, the rack is solid, vibration-free, and capable of holding a typical rack pack without issues. A great way to carry extra gear on a century ride without having to rely on backpack!

Works and Made Well

I would have given it a 5 score except that I had to smooth and radius the rough and sharp edges on the aluminum mounting plates so they wouldn't cut into the seat rails. Follow the included instructions when first mounting it, and it is easy peasy. Great way to use a rack trunk on a road bike during the winter to hold the jackets, vests, tights, and other stuff that you don't need for summer riding.

Better rack that works great with the Arkel Tailrider

This replaced a similar clamp-on rack. The other rack, made by Top Peak, just clamps on the seat-post, and tends to slide back and forth, This rack has a far better mounting system. I would not go on long tours offroad with this, but it should be perfect for long day rides and my upcoming credit-card tour.

Pricey but worth it if you must have a trunk bag with you

I bought this to put on my club/racer bike, because apparently I can't ride without my Arkel Tailrider. This is a light rack that clips on/off easily and fits the bag just right.
