Hi Vik,

I follow your blog and have tried out many of your good ideas, including jones/titec bar and ergon grips. Both of these surprized me with the control and comfort they offer. I went on a short tour in May with my Bike Friday NWT and used a Xootr seatpost rack and Ortlieb pannier. The rack does not have any major advantages over the regular BF rack but I did become quite fond of it. I am not sure it would work with a tikit and probably has many shortcomings when compared to the new BF folking tikit rack but I thought I would send this limited recommendation to you of the Xootr. Its streamed lined and balance transport of a single pannier on an ultrlight tour was functional and good looking too. Thanks for all your good tips. jim
