This rack is very adjustable and very rugged with one weakness, the mounting flange. I mounted it on the front of my back-road touring bike. I had to fabricate a piece to connect the flange to my fork. While riding with a 4.5 pound load on the rack, the flange broke. I emailed Blackburn with pictures. They provided excellent customer service and sent me a replacement rack. This time I will fabricate a connection piece that will reinforce the flange. Blackburn makes quality products and backs them up.
Installing this took a little patience and planning. I'm not sure I would recommend this one, though. The adjustability features are a draw, but it ends up being a bit of a hassle to get it all centered and secure. I put Blackburn Local Panniers on it and finally figured out how to make it all work together.
Very strong and light rack.
Primarily for disc version...but i was able to also use on non disc version by flipping triangle mounting attachment .
So i can use on mtb and grocery getter.
Comes with all hardware and easy to install.
Very happy with this product.
First off, I had already tried two other racks on the front of my Diamondback. None fit and neither came with any mounting hardware that worked.. This Blackburn Locale Deluxe came with everything to mount the rack a couple of different ways.... my bike was a real humdinger to fit and I ended up using the mount in a reverse fashion and its so steady you could ride a friend on it without trouble. You may have to think outside the box on some bikes but if you want to order a rack that will mount on your bike this one is it.. Blackburn should develop a spot on their site where people could post a shot of their mounting configurations....
