Topeak do some Beam Racks that attach to just the seatpost: http://www.topeak.com/products/Racks

Other manufacturers may do something similar, but the problem with all of them is that they can't carry much weight. There is no way to have struts to the stays on a rear suspension frame as they move in relation to the rest of the frame.

Not sure if you do walmart but I did see one of these....

Mounts right on your seat post. You can shop amazon for something like it maybe...

ill see about the seat post ones...


btw bill, that schwinn seat post wasn't selling @ wal mart, though i saw them at Canadian tire Big Grin
wal mart and Canadian tire offers bike racks for 26-30" bikes, are those ok? i was thinking to buy one and try it if it doesn't fit return it :p

Yes they should come with a couple aluminum inserts for different size posts. If you do not see them ask Canadian tire guys where they are. I do have a Schwinn one only a little different in make. That thing is really awesome. Carried 50 pounds of tools on my Mongoose XR-75 20 blocks and could not tell they were there. Had to keep looking back to see haha. Anyways yes if it don't fit take it back. Easy way is to ride over there, pull out your seat post take it inside and try it right inside the store.
