How about a rack that weighs the same as a couple of inner tubes, yet can carry 30kg?

Note there is no price given. Can we assume "expensive"?

I want, i want, i want

    I love the use of the word "just". I bought my Kaffenback frame and forks in a sale for less than that!

    Hm, well, if it is as light and strong as it says, then it saves maybe half a kilo over a regular rack. If thats so, its actually cheap compared to most other component changes intended to save weight.

    Well, thats how I'd justify buying it if severely questioned by nearest and dearest.

    hi

    I'm getting one as soon as they are available and probably from here:

    Even with postage from Germany it's still cheaper than BikePlus.
