The Mighty® full alloy pannier rack is the perfect addition to add versatility to your bike. It can hold single, double, and three-piece panniers, and it is adjustable for 24", 26", and 28" bike sizes.
This is the first 'pannier' type rear cargo rack I've owned so I don't have much reference for comparisons. My biggest issue was that the way the brackets fit together made it a little difficult to attach without an extra set of helping hands, but it can be done. For my bike the reach of the brackets from the rack to the frame eyelets just barely reached, but reach they did. Overall it seems really sturdy and holds my cargo bag with no issues..and the spring loaded clamp is a nice addition that's come in handy. I haven't gotten any pannier bags for it yet (though I plan to, that's why I got this type of cargo rack), so I can't comment on how well it might work with a set of those, but so far I'm happy with my choice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
