I bought this Salsa Rack to use on my Salsa Marrakesh tour bike. As expected, it fit the Salsa bike very well. Like just about everything you buy these days this rack did not come with installation instructions but they were readily available on line and easy to follow. I've seen a lot of these installed and almost none with the carrying bar parallel to the ground as described in the instruction manual. I also have SKS fenders installed with the rack. I intend to use these with Ortlieb front rollers and that was a bit problematic. To get the lower mounting clamp to work with this rack I had to take off the lower mounting bracket on the front rollers and turn it upside down. Otherwise they wouldn't fit this rack. I'm not a big fan of Ortlieb mounting system but that's another story.
