If you have to schlep, might as well schlep in style. This rack looks really nice in person and is easy to install. I bought the fence along with it, but replaced the M5 screws for the fence with nice-looking M5 stainless steel thumb screws for tool-less removal of the fence for those occasions when the fence is not needed.
There is lots of beautiful chrome on my Harley, and there is lots of chrome on my sherpa pedal bike. I guess I like 'em shiny. (And I miss chrome bumpers on cars.)
