Tailfin Alloy Rack with Pannier Mounts

Tailfin changed to way we look at bike racks, when they launched their first design only a few short years ago. With a system that fastens to any bike, without touching the frame, it gives everyone the opportunity to take on a 2-wheeled adventure. We decided to ask Bikepacking expert, Sam Huby, to take a look at their latest alloy rack, and see how useful it could be on a short trip to the Hebrides.
