Rover rear rack
« on: July 09, 2020, 01:15:38 PM »
Rad is sold out of the rear rack for the rover so i bought:
https://amzn.to/2W2H7QM for half the price it fit well. 

Still waiting on the brake light extension cable.  Not sure if this comes with the rad rover rack?

Nice, the Ibera is a much more affordable option. I have seen many people go that route. And yes, the brake light extension cable does come with the Rad Rover rack. Did you end up just getting that extension from Amazon? Let us know if it works.

While waiting for my Rad Rover to ship I also ordered rack and extension cable from Amazon only I ordered the Topeak along with the bag. This waiting for shipment sucks...

The wait does suck.  My father in law ordered a bike and got all the accessories but the bike is slated to ship in September....

Can someone share how many pins are on the connector you need for the rear light extension? I want to add it to my accessories list so people don't have to go searching.

Rack installed perfectly.  Wouldn't mind it a bit further back, but no way to do that with this rack.

Just as an FYI, the cable i ordered worked perfectly.  It is BARELY long enough but it is long enough for use with the ibera rack, and i really wish the rack was further back!  Bolton Bikes also sells an extension, unsure the length.
