I don't know if there's a special mount for the 1 gallon Rotopax.

I have a rear cycleracks and just added the bag panniers. It's pre-fitted to allow a rotopax mount and the 1 gallon on the inside left.
Which one works? there are various mounts, and its a restricted area, because cycleracks did say only the 1 gallon will fit inside.

This is the one I got....and the one you are looking for.

Ah, I just got confused... I thought that the inside needed a mount and not the extension...
Since theres a newer double twist style I didn't know if it allowed clearance on the inside to remove the tank if the exterior is loaded.

The FUELPAX mount depicted is the cheaper, lighter, hollow stamped steel version of their more standard cast ROTOPAX mount. Both are dimensionally equivalent & will bold directly to most base plates. Don't recall ever seeing a ROTOPAX mounted between tire and pannier supports, assumed a lack of clearance for the twist lock device.

seems more mounts are available,
the newer improved double latch seems more secure near the swing arm, but being taller it might not allow space for removal...
I couldn't figure out how the extension would mount by itself that Donzo showed

I just ordered this from amazon since it seems the lowest profile with base.
I'll post detail dimension pics near the suspension... possibly might upgrade to the double latch later.
