Can somebody name some pannier racks made of STEEL? Thats right, steel. I want steel because aluminium is not possible to weld if it breaks. I'm going to Iceland next year and don't want an alloy rack snapping on me.

Tubus makes ome nice ones but they are costly?

Anything cheaper?

I don't know of anything else, but can highly recommend the tubus racks.

A few smaller French firms also make steel pannier racks. But beware with TUbus, not all panniers fit well on them.
Mostly when a pannier rack breaks it's possible to spline it using a tent peg and two hoseclamps.
