"In 1975 Blackburn set out to design stronger, lighter, more innovative and more reliable cycling products. The first were bike bags and bike racks designed for touring. From there, Blackburn grew. Over the next 30 years, Blackburn's spark of innovation has lead to many revolutionary products, like the first high quality aircraft aluminium cycle rack, the first dual stroke bike minipump, the first oversized mountain bike minipump and the first dual stage/dual stroke floor bike pump to name a few. Blackburn's creative spark is burning brighter than ever, Blackburn is dedicated to designing smart, reliable, no nonsense cycle accessories that are essential to your bike riding experience."
Blackburn FL1 Custom Low Rider Rack
Suitable for any cycle which does not have mid-fork mounts. The Specialized Tricross actually does have the mid-fork mounts and odd shaped forks, but using just the nuts from the mount kit, I was able to attach it just fine to create enough of a gap between rack and fork to allow the pannier to hang from it perfectly.

A favourite with regular touring cyclists these racks are easy to fit and incredibly stable even with heavy loads. Extra pannier rails keep the bags away from the tyre.
