    are these watercut? I would like one but instead of round holes I would prefer straighter cuts on the rear and side to better accomodate strapping. Similair to the rack pictured below.

    Not sure who makes this rack, I saved the image and can't find the source, was it you?

    BLM Accessories makes the rack you mention. I have it + Rick's version. Prefer Rick's version as it it shorter if you are carrying a passenger + much cheaper. I have no problem having the circular cutouts for strapping a dry bag or a tail bag dependant on trip duration.

    I installed this rear rack last night. It is well built, simple to install, and rugged. I will put it to the test this season. Thanks for a high quality product. Rick

    Rick,

    Thanks again for the rack! It's exactly what I needed for my solo day trips so I could carry an extra 10L of fuel without putting my panniers on. The only thing I did that wasn't included was get some 3M foam/sticky tape and put it between the spacers and the hand hold. That way nothing will vibrate itself into anything else. Cheers!

    Joe

    Anyone know if this rack does/would interfere with caribou case mounts. If you have seen caribou cases (you can check their website), it almost looks like the cases may come up high enough where the side of the rack would hit. Any input?

    I received my Kildala rack and installed it Friday night in three minutes time. Great fit and finish.

    The rack is fantastic. Great platform for a variety of stuff. It will hold my overnight bags, camping gear, etc. just perfectly.

    And it also works great for strapping down just a small toolbag, a briefcase...whatever.

    Below is a pic of my bike packed up for camping with the Kildala rack.

    Great work Rick. Pleasure doing business with you. :clap :thumb

    Installed my rack a couple days ago and have had a couple solid days of use out of it during my commute. Let me just say that this sucker will pay for itself time and time again. It's affordable (compared to others) and very funtional. To people wondering why other racks similar to this have longer slots for tie downs (like the pic of the one on the 1st page of this thread) vs. circle holes to hook into....the slots just leave more room for the strap/bungie to vibrate and wiggle around in. The Kildala rack is super easy to mount and is very solid. I also like that its not as overwhelming as others...in other words it gets the job done without looking like the rack is going to take over the whole bike!!! Thanks Rick, you're the man. Rick is part of a dying breed of easy and amazing people to do business with. AAAAAAAAA++++++++
