The rear carrier we ordered for our new Brooklyn bike looks great and more importantly is sturdy and handles the job of carrying everything from books to groceries.
I recently bought the the rear carrier, and unfortunately the screws too secure the rack did not arrive. the brooklyn bike team send a follow up email. when i replied and mentioned that screws were missing, they promptly mailed the screws.
I have this for my Bedford Single and it's a stylish fit. It's also well constructed and I've strapped a couple different sized bags to it easily.
My rear carrier looks pretty cool but the magic is that its super strong. I can easily load groceries, books, heck luggage if i need to. Usually though its just lots of fruit from the Farmers Market!
This rack is adjustable. I have it installed on another brand of bike--the Virtue Curve--and it fits great. The brushed aluminum finish is a good match to my bike's existing finishes. Looks nice and gets the job done. Also, the price + free shipping = excellent value. I'm pleased with this purchase.
