Classically designed, the Topeak Super Tourist DX Disc Rack is a tubular touring rack that is designed for use with disc brakes. Featuring a solid fender top, dedicated pannier rails and super strong 6061 aluminum rod construction. This rack is built solid from top to bottom. Of course the best feature is the ability to mount this bad boy on a bike with disc brakes.
The super-tourist certainly manages to be most things to most riders. At 55 pounds, the maximum payload should be enough for all but kitchen sink tourists, let alone commuters.
Quick track plate which accepts all MTX series trunk bags

Well, I got two of these, one "disc" one "regular". The disc spacing was way too narrow for my 29er mtn bike... perhaps it fits a road bike? Also compared to my existing 26 MTN Bike Topeak Explorer disc rack, and clearly the spacing was significantly more narrrow... something's different... and when you spread the legs to fit, well now the disc tabs are out at some goofy angle...
Summed up: great and perfect when it fits, not many options when it does not
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Good rack for your regular or commuting bike. Wouldn't use this for touring since it's weight limit is less than a stainless steel or steel rack.
However, for my regular rider bike it is great. I outfit my bike with Banjo Brothers market panniers to carry on the Topeak rack for errands or going picnicking.
I like this rack better than the regular Topeak racks with the "V" structure. As I have owned both types of racks. This rack's structure gives more protection and support to the panniers.

OK... follow up to the previous. I got brave and put in some "adjustments" to the "geometry". Good news is the rack is easy to bend into proper shape! I set it on the ground, stepped on a 2x4, and pulled the rack up and around to reshape the angle the tabs contact the frame, after spreading the rack wider for my 29er's rear end. So, in the end, it became perfect!
