A very functional rack for the price. Won't last forever.
I put this rack on my steel frame road/commuter bike six or seven years ago. I've loaded it up with panniers and a tent bag for short tours, I've strapped big bags of cat litter to it, I've carried groceries. Most of the time, to be honest, it just carries my u-lock, which slots neatly in on either side of the platform across the top. I've crashed the bike a time or two. This rack stood up impressively to all of that for quite a long time. The platform across the middle wiggles a little, but that makes it easier to get the u-lock in and out, so that's okay. Recently, I noticed that one of the rails had broken - probably from my heavy u-lock rattling around next to it. It still functions just fine to carry my lock, on the other side now. And I'd feel secure enough carrying a pannier full of groceries on the other rail, too. But this isn't a lifetime rack. It's just a great functional addition to an everyday bike. For a rack you'll be able to use and abuse and move from bike to bike forever, look at Tubus.
