I bought this rack for a 20" Dahon folding bicycle. Dahon has discontinued their front "Traveler Rack" and the Racktime Topit looked like it would be able to fit. It fit well but I had to do a few things. 1. The bottom of the 45 degree struts from the top front interfered a little with the wheel axle nuts so I had to grind a little of the end of the strut off, but this end was just extra length with no structural functionality so it was not a problem. See photo. 2. You need a spacer (a couple of washers will do) between the mounting eyelet on the fork and the rack so the strut won't hit the side of the fork. If you don't have fenders you'll need a few more washers, or a short spacer with M5 inner dimension. See photo. 3. The mounting bracket that goes to the brake bolt needs to be bent to go over the brake cable, then back down to insert into the slot on the rack (this depends on the type of brakes you have). See photo. 4. The struts were too wide so they needed to be bent in.a little. 5. The brake bolt needs to be replaced. The existing bolt is M6 x 45mm, but an M6 x 50mm is needed. The top of the rack clears the fender just fine. Photos at: Unfortunately, after waiting several weeks, I had to order this rack from a shop in Germany since Tubus is having issues with shipments to U.S. resellers.

I fit the rack to a 2015 Kona Big Rove. I had to bend the struts out slightly to fit the fork, and the rear support upward to correct the angle on the 29er tires, but once installed it has been rock solid. The BaskIt clicks on and off super easy.

I have a 2010 kona dew plus and this rack fit perfect. I was not sure it would work because of the big aluminum fork but it was a very simple install and it seems very sturdy. Overall I'm extremely satisfied

A well conceived and beatifully made lightweight rack. The fittings are all premium stainless steel. I was able to adapt it to my Gary Fisher Tiburon using a couple of readily available pipe fittings as clamps on the fork legs. Great quality for the price.
