Hello,

I have a recently completed a new commuting bike from an 80s race frame - no eyelets. I'd quite like to fit a for a rack but not sure how its possible. i've bought some custom eyelets for mudguards, and some little thin p clips for the front mudguards, but can't see how the rack will attach at the top unless it fits on the nut of the brake caliper. does anyone have any experience of this?

much appreciated,

Iain

IIRC you need two more of those p clips for the top mounts too or you can use a rack that mounts to the brake bridge but they tend to be the cheaper variety...

Get a 3-point rack. Much better than P-clips, and probably cheaper.

We need pictures. 8)
