recently bought myself a 1992 Claude Butler Dalesman, it has single eyelets at the bottom of the fork and mudguards attached to them and a single mounting bolt about 1/3 of the way down. I cant work out what front rack to get for it. Most racks seem to have the upper mounting that requires a bolt on both sides of the fork.
hope this makes sense and any advice welcome..
If the fork eyelet is on the outside only it is essential to have a rack with a brace over the wheel to prevent the extremely nasty scenario of having the rack or pannier foul the front wheel. This is a good price on an excellent rack which fits the bill... http://www.spacycles.co.uk/products.php ... b38s79p156
I am not aware of cheaper alternatives other than the Blackburn low rider which requires adaptation (drilling bits out) to use modern pannier mounting systems.
