I've got an E model, and yea, those subframes are cheap. Looking to carry a Giant Loop Great Basin and thought I might need more support on the back.

Any suggestions on E racks?

Nomadic I think is the one on my e and Iíve used the heck out of it. Big heavy tool bag, giant loop bag, cases of beer, no problem. Iím with the above poster- e sub frames are cheap if you break them. You could probably cheaply build one up also but I havenít had a need to yet. I think you can find the rack on eBay.

Lol I may have been one of those posters i have swapped the s subframe on to my e and convinced my buddy to do the same. Not only does it help with carrying a load but itís so much nicer being able to grab a solid tail when picking up or moving the bike. I scooped an extra s/sm subframe a while back with a parts bike itís had the helmet lock tab ground off but Iíd let it go for a 100$ if your ever around the Austin area.

I fit that description. I notice you didn't say "Good" picture takers, so I can do it.

That's an awesome offer. I do however try to avoid the Dallas to Austin drive as much as humanly possible, though I did it twice in the springtime.

That nomadic rack also looks nice, lotsa options. I'd have to wait till next paycheck at the earliest having bought the GL bag and some new boots this week.

Re: The DR/DRZ Thread

So, in my DR-Z world today, I got my new complete Seat Concepts Standard seat and put it on my SM.

Really well made, it is what they are calling second generation.



So, I then put my old Seat Concepts Standard seat, that I installed on the pan, on the DR-ZS. Seems pretty good, I will have to ride both to see which I like best. Hoping for a tie.





And, for the record, I didn't ding the seat cover, but I know who did.....
