If you brought a bike before, I am sure it crossed your mind to put up a bike rack to carry extra baggage. I looked around for options and found best one to be Topeak. Read full review...

I have Trek 3900 and had no problems with fitting. I include couple pictures to show you what I had to do to install the rack. Whole process took me about 15 minutes.
