Nitto R-14 (R14) Top Rack
It's a cinch to mount, secure and lovely. It doubles the usefulness of any bike you put it on.
It comes with band clamps, for simple mounting to any bike with seat stays, whether it has rack braze-ons or not. As is the case with all Nitto racks, it is strong, gorgeous, and cleverly designed.
As a saddle support for big bags or a rack for a trunk bag, it's unimprovable.
Nitto rates this to rack 13 lbs. Nitto is really conservative, but that's the number we're going with. With any rack, you have to snug the bolts tight. The nuts on this rack are special ones made for the car industry. They cannot vibrate loose, and in that way are even way more secure than nylock nuts. They can be loosened normally, but they won't loosen through vibration.
Top loads only. It's not for panniers that hang off the sides. For that, we have the Nitto Big Back racks.
Note: 13 lbs weight limit.
Not that it matters but this rack is 1.2 pounds.
