    I’ve been using Axiom Journey racks for at least five years. I’ve used them for regular long distance commutes with heavy loads and general purpose transport. In fact, I’ve even strapped a small dresser to one once and slowly biked it home for a mile or two from a yard-sale.

    In my opinion, this rack blows the competition away. This rack is rated at a 70kg (154lbs) load capacity. Most tubular aluminum racks aren’t even rated at half that.

    The Axiom Journey is the only thing keeping me from shelling out for a $100+ steel touring rack. The next time I buy a rack, I’m going to get another one of these. However, I suspect that my current racks will last well into the future.

    Highly recommended. For this price (or even two times this price), you will not be disappointed.

    This review is from: Axiom Journey Tubular Alloy Rack (Black)
    I returned an Avenir Universal rack that I had ordered, because it was poorly designed and wouldn’t fit my pretty standard road bike. The second time around I did a little more research to figure out what rack had the best quality and fit. For only about $10 more than the Avenir, I purchased the Axiom Journey, and it was so much better (for still a great price) that I almost couldn’t believe it.

    The Journey has thick, strong tubes and beefy welds that inspire confidence. The shape and tube arragement are strong, and perfect if you’re going to mount panniers. I really like the fully adjustable heavy duty front brackets that mount to the frame near the rear brakes. These are much stronger and more confidence inspiring than the flimsy flexible silver metal strips that come with 80% of bike racks.

    This rack was super easy to install, fit perfectly level and true without any hassle. I have since purchased Axiom Lasalle DLX Pannier Set (Black and Grey) Pannier Bags, and they mount perfectly on the rack. I had not been familiar with the Axiom brand before I bought these products, but they are bulletproof and inspire confidence, while looking good. Recommended!!
