Yostwerks, this rack looks nice and stable! Can you show a closeup of how you attach the bottom bracket to the rail? I assume the bottom bracket rides on the gray block that is fit into the rail (shown in another of your pics)?

Any special tricks re: the rear derailleur and chain in order to deal with the travel vibration with the rear wheel out?
Thanks .... You are correct about the gray closed cell foam and bottom bracket setup. The standard Yakima strap wraps around one chainstay and the tray to secure the bike in place (pic). The chain is simply pulled up and over the brake pads to provide tension. I ride with the rear wheel removed to keep the bike's weight forward and to lower the CG. I've found this much improves the bikes stabilty... Tom
