I have a rear bike rack similar to this one, but I have no top or bottom eyelets on my Lemond bike. I want to attach it with p-clamps for a 3 day tour. How much weight can p-clamps hold? Do you have any recommendations on which specific p-clamps to get?
Bicycles Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people who build and repair bicycles, people who train cycling, or commute on bicycles. Join them; it only takes a minute:
Here's how it works:
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
For the upper mounts, there are brackets that clamp on the seat stay or the seat post and provide the regular braze-ons.
I'm betting the p-clamps will hold more weight than the rack will, however try it well before your tour.
