Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why underseat?
Rear racks have their place, but underseat racks really let you carry things.
A rear rack is great for light things, or occasional use, but when you want to
carry things on a regular basis, underseat is the way to go. With the weight low
and centered, your bike's handling is not affected like is with a rear rack.
When the amount of weight gets significant at all, the difference is very
2. How much can I carry?
A lot. Our Easy Racers racks are rated 18lbs/side, but they can carry more. So, more than
you are probably ever going to need to carry. We often go to pick up our
stainless bolts on a Tour Easy, and sometimes it's more than we realized. We've
carried more than 45lbs back on one side. It's good to know you've got
capacity to spare if you ever need it!
3. What panniers can I use?
Any pannier with the hooks near the top. Due to the low seats on these bikes,
keeping the pannier rail up close under the seat is the way to go.
4. How do they install?
We machine special clamps that attach behind the seat and across the lower
tubes. The pannier rails plug into the ends of the clamps. We make
different versions of the clamps if you have a unique bike like an S&S
coupled Ti Rush, for example. Let us know your exact model when you order and we
can provide the special parts you need.
5. Why don't you make one for the new single lower tube bikes?
We do! Note that it will work on any of the big bottom tube bikes, bit just the S&S coupled ones.
