Quality product

I’ve used this rack for several rides on my carbon frame Cannondale Synapse. The rack is absolutely quiet and firmly attached with the well engineered clips for the axle and on the seat post. Very clever! I’m planning a 10 day ultralight tour and far prefer to use my go-to Cannondale than my old steel brute. The Tailfin system is perfect for this. Installs easily and comes off in seconds. It’s a nice looking product too. My panniers fit perfectly - no wiggles or looseness - rock solid. I am looking forward to buying more products from Tailfin.

A year of daily commuting, great product

I bike to work, an hour each way, five days a week, using the Tailfin rack and bags to carry clothes + lunch. It is absolutely silent, no rattles or banging around. I take it off on the weekends when I go on club rides. I'm really happy to see the new X series rack options, with mixes of carbon & aluminum to make the product available at lower price points.

Makes impractical bikes practical

First off, this rack is incredible. If you are at all considering any of tailspin's racks, just buy it. More concretely, it is annoyingly hard to find a nice proper road bike that can take a rack, but that is exactly what this does. As a commuter, a rack makes a world of difference. Personally, I had been putting off upgrading my ride until I could find a solution that wasn't a swaying seatpost thingy. This is where tailfin came to the rescue. While most people will balk at the price, this product is really geared at letting your get more joyful miles out of a $2k+ tarmac eaters instead of letting it gather dust 5 days a weeks. Assembly was a breeze and easily fits aero posts. My only 'complaint' is that the spacer bushings need more options to be able to guarantee that it sits perfectly over the rear wheel. I also wish there as was a way to protect the extra threads that sit out past the dropout. I also wish I had waited a week since the new rack line came out right after I made my purchase.
