    Alpha Rider Rack

    Just wondering if anyone has ever tried this rack? The price is right I think.

    I don't think I've seen anyone with that particular rack here yet. The price is fair compared to similar racks.

    Maybe I will take one for the team and report back. I am picking up a free ATV rack I am going to try and have some brackets welded up to try out also. Need something big eneough for a 2-4 of beer and a 1-8-6 pack of Pampers Swaddlers. The cyclerack would be great but waaaaaay out of my price range.

    Rack looks ok, better hope alignment is spot on with all those angles and welds.

    I'm not sure of the price for a new cycle rack. But I can say that the cycle rack is so good. Worth whatever it costs. I just used mine to manhandle the bike through a huge snowfield. Literally could not have been accomplished without that cyclerack

    Most likely it is low carbon steel. Tubing, once bent, collapses and strength is considerably reduced. If it gets bent, you can bend it back. I made my saddle bag supports from solid 5/16" square stock steel with the same idea in mind. You can reshape it overall with your hands and tweak it with the help of some channel locks if you have a mishap. Better to bend than crack. Like a reed in the wind . . . . . . .

    I bet it is a tough as a stock Yamaha rear rack or near to it. I wouldn't worry about it. The tail end only is supposed to carry 7 lbs anyway. If you're loading it up enough to bend or break it, you've chosen the wrong kind of rack.
