Topeak QR Beam Rack RX review£29.99

Best beam rack for road bikes

BikeRadar score4/5

Beam racks are an easy to fit option for bikes that don’t have carrier eyelets, transforming your sleek racing machine into a lightweight B&B tourer for the weekend. 

The RX is one in a range of models to suit different frame sizes and intentions. Typical to Topeak, there’s great attention to detail, including integrated adjustable bungees, optional side arms and a mini-mudguard accessory, which actually works surprisingly well. 

The rack itself clamps securely on the seatpost – shims are provided to suit post diameters from 28.6-31.8mm.

The platform is small and best suited to Topeak’s own range of luggage, which slots in securely on runners.

One tip: we’d recommend swapping out your carbon seatpost for a more robust alloy one.
