Yeah,

Anyone make one. Out of CF for example.

Gotta hold at least 25 lbs. Be totally rad if it was only a seatpost clamp type.

Anyone?

This is the one I use. As far as I know its the only carbon fiber one I was able to find on a retail level. It only carries 15 lbs though. I don't think any CF rack is going to carry more then that. http://www.topeak.com/products/Racks/RXBeamRackCarbon

Tubus Airy is a conventional rack out of titanium, it's 233 gr (more than a 100gr lighter than the Topeak Carbon!) and takes twice the load at 30kg

A Tubus Airy would be the top WW choice.

I've been running a Tubus Fly (bit heavier, lots cheaper) and it's a top quality rack that looks good on road bikes as it's narrower and lower than most.

(Tubus also offer one of the most amazing guarantees I've ever seen: http://www.tubus.com/en/service-a-warranty/warranty Not that I've needed to test it.)

This one is interesting - 6.5lbs for the two bikes model. Suction based - easy to remove and install. Not CF though.

Umm, that's a car rack, bro. I believe the OP is looking for a bike-mounted cargo rack.

WTF? Why are you asking this on THIS FORUM?

People ask for the lightest cable ends here.

They ask for the lightest nylon water bottle cage bolts.

They forget that they have 25 lbs in their guts n @s$es

and you ask me this?


BAH!


You're not a real weight weenie

i checked the carradice website. looks like the only racks are actually Old Man Mountain racks. great racks, but not "lightweight".
i know a guy that has a "One-Off" titanium bike with a custom tubular titanium rack. the rack is LIGHT. it's also a custom fit, no adjustable stays.
maybe one of these ti guys will make you one. it's only money...
