Axiom's Journey Rack is made of light, rugged aluminum. It is specially designed to handle even the largest and heaviest panniers (sold separately) with additional looped struts that prevent the bags from swinging into the wheel. It also has a platform on top, which adds strength and doubles as a mini fender.
Owned two of these racks. The one broke at the rear bottom welds. The other one broke between the two welds. Weight carried was only 21 lbs. It is good as long as it is a smooth road. I ride on gravel and first bump started it cracking. Poor welding job and angle attaching to axle do it in. Using locktight or lock washers does not help as some claim. Not made to carry weight on top of rack.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
