All our bootracks are supplied with fitting kits which enable them to clamp onto the sides of the bootlid and rubber suckers for the feet. Fitting and removing takes under 2 minutes and requires a 9mm spanner. Alternatively they can be fitted permanently by drilling 4 holes through the bootlid and use the studding and nuts provided to fix into the internally threaded legs of the rack. All our racks are supplied with fittings, however we also supply fitting kits separately for anyone who has purchased a rack elsewhere supplied without fittings, or needs to replace the fittings.
What is the difference between an alloy rack and a stainless one? The main advantage of using stainless construction is that it will hold up to 66kg (evenly distributed), whereas the aluminium alloy versions will only hold up to 27kg. Furthermore stainless tends to keep its handsome appearance almost indefinitely whereas alloy is subject to degradation and corrosion over time. The softer nature of alloy means it is more susceptible to collecting scratches from the placing and removing of luggage.
On a group test of 8 bootracks Practical Classics magazine awarded our CBR9005 rack their Best Buy award.
Their appraisal in full was: "The finish on the stylish Mille Miglia rack was superb, with even tubes and excellent assembly using countersunk slotted set-screws. Tubes are fixed to each other using shaped plastic washers, ensuring an even fit, and it is easy to nip any of them up if the rack slackens off, unlike riveted racks. The bars offer an excellent platform for hard and soft bags alike, and are useful for attatching bungees to. The support bar is a bit shallow. This rack has the feel of a well-made and lasting contender.
