What are the pros/cons of getting a rack with the hump vs the flat. What do you recommend?
I used three stainless wire loom clamps that I got at Sears hardware to mount it to the rack. I got ones that were for 1/2". I used two on the cover side and one on the other end. The are attached with a 1/4" bolt and nylock nut. The clamps are very strong, I think the plastic on the tube will fail before they do.I'd be interested in how you mounted the tool tube....I've tried several mounts and they always failed within a few weeks of washboard.
Yup! The flat was made special for me, I think, by Cycleracks. It just allows for strapping stuff further back on the rack. Bigger boxes sit better on the flat while other loads might be more secure with the hump to hold them from sliding back. It is a personal thing but I will always believe the flat is more versatile.GaryL has a flat one cus he didn't want the hump and sold it to me...lol
