Seat post rack with dual attachment points to provide unequaled strength and stability.
Fits with the Tailrider trunk bag.
Classic Brooks saddles B17 and some models from Selle Anatomica
The challenge with some of the classic Brooks saddles such as the B17 and some models from Selle Anatomica is the large width between the seat rails.
We’ve solved this with an adaptor that is much wider at the quick release point, where it attaches to the seat rails. Buy the wide adaptor here.
The adaptor can be positioned vertically along the upper back part of the seat rails, or horizontally and closer to the seat post for when riders want to position the saddle further back (in the direction of the rear wheel.).
Carbon Seat Post Compatible: Yes
Aero Seat Post Compatible: No
Carbon Seat Rails Compatible: Not recommended

Minimum clearance required between the seat rails and the top of the bicycle seat tube is 4 inches (10cm) for the short setup and 7 inches (18 cm) for the long setup.
If the seat rails of your saddle are more than 3.5 inches (89mm) apart, you will need the wide rails adapter available in our accessories.

The Randonneur Rack is ideal for carrying our immensely popular TailRider, or any top rack trunk bag for that matter.
Easy to install, resistant, stable and light, the Randonneur Rack meets your needs. It will fit most bikes with regular saddles.
With its dual attachment points, the Arkel Randonneur Rack is designed to combine both strength and stability with a very lightweight structure. The vertical load is carried by the seat rails while the seat post abutment point provides the exceptional lateral and vertical stability to the system. Moreover, the soft rubber seat post bracket acts like a shock absorber to dampen shocks from rough road conditions.
