Adjustable rear rack

Pendle’s Strap on rack has a satisfyingly engineered feel. The upper arm of the frame can be locked at one of three angles, allowing the rack to sit in different positions, and adjustable-height arms should keep bikes well above the lights and registration plate. Tough straps hold everything steady, and the boot can still be opened.

Three bikes – up to 40.5kg – can be strapped onto the plastic sleeved arms, which allow for flexible positioning. You might need to put some padding between the bikes though, to prevent damage. Surprisingly, the rack’s supplementary rubber protective strip wore through after one journey.

Robin began road cycling in 1988, and with mountain bikes in their infancy, mixed experimental off-road adventures with club time trials and road races. Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that. Ten years as a Forensic Photographer followed, honing his eye for detail in pictures and words. He has shot at the biggest pro events since the '90s, and now he's here, drawing on all those experiences to figure out what makes a bike or component tick.
