    Seat Post rack for Carbon Fiber

    Hi,

    I recently posted a question about handlebar bags for CF bars and got a lot of good responses. However, I have the FSA Wing bar and none of the clamps would fit so that was out of the question. My next option is a seat post rack that I could put some supplies in for ride marshaling charity rides. I have a Madone 6.2 and was wondering if the seat post and mast was strong enough for a 1.5lb rack with about 5lbs of stuff in it. This wouldn't be a everyday mount but maybe two or three times a year for long rides.

    Thanks for your help.

    Greg

    I have an FSA Wing bar. Handlebar bag fits fine. (Topeak) As for a clamp-on rack on a CF seatpost.... no. never. no way.

    What bag do you use? The clamp was too wide for my bar. It would hit the flat wing and not clamp.

    Thanks

    A great rack for CF seatposts is the Arkel Randonneur Rack. Puts most of the weight on the seat rails and fastens against the CF seatpost with a rubber clamp and velcro. It's sturdy and stable, if a bit pricy.
