    EC90SL fork and fork mount rack

    I found a couple of threads on this but didn't see anything too definitive. I'm looking at an Easton EC90SL fork that has carbon dropouts for my wife's new ride. Does anybody have one of these forks (or something similar) and a fork mount rack? Any problems with damage to the dropouts? I didn't see anything in Easton's installation guide to suggest that it would be a problem but I'm not sure...

    My racks are SportRack Piranhas and they basically use a quick release style attachment (all the way through so it would put equal pressure on both sides).

    I don't see it being a problem.

    Unless your rack attachment puts a lot more clamping force on the dropouts than your quick release I don't see a problem.
