Topeak QR Beam Rack RX review
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.
