    Bag supports for Cyclerack

    Are there any DIY ideas floating around to make bag supports for the Cyclerack? I think that the ones that they make are overkill for my intended purpose. I will be using Nelson-Rigg dry bags not hard cases, so I want simplicity. Any advice will be appreciated! J

    Overkill? I've bent mine.

    I used a metal rod from the local hardware. I bent and cut it to fit. Is very fast to put on and take off. I must admit I don't know if this will work for you as I don't haven't seen Nelson-Rigg Bags, but maybe this will help.





    Attached to my saddle bags



    Good Luck

    Thanks for the great advice gentlemen. Admiral, I think that what you made is exactly what I am needing. Can you tell me the diameter of the material that you used and how you went about bending?

    Rod dia. I think was 3/8 but I'll check when I get home. If it's different I'll post it up. I used a Oxy/Act torch to heat it up and made the bends. Yeah, don't hit the "cut" button on the handle. I think I made the curls by heating the rod up then bending it over, up and around, using the actual cyclcrack as the guide. I wore welding gloves and used a vice grip and...hammer, to manipulate the curls. I used a hand grinder to smooth out the cut portion of the rod.

    I started out using a torch which attaches to one of those small hand held propane tanks and it was working. It's just the Oxy/Act torch heated it quicker.

    Oh, and I just eyeballed the measurements to match my saddle bags.

    it's really the hammers that had him pinned to the ground, not the rack

    It is not stated on their website, but are the Cyclerack supports $79 for the pair or the individual? If it is for the pair I'm going to buy them, if it's $79 per side Im going to mimic admiral's set up.
