I think I found my new bags. Was leaning towards Keiga before, but these look sweet, esp the minimalist rack.
Just wondering how the rack holds up in a fall?
I can tell you from real world experience that the racks hold up great in falls. I've put my bike through the paces and it's seen about 4-5 bad falls on rocks on its side with nothing more than some paint missing from the racks. I really like having the racks on the back. They work like extra crash bars. I'd hate to see what the back of the bike would look like if I hadn't had them.
This was one of the nastier spills, and I think I laid it down 2 or 3 more times on this climb before I got to the top.
