Why?
You bought a gravel / adventure bike with rack mounts. You'd run bottle cages on it right? What's the difference?
If you're really paranoid, just run the Bontrager rack. If something magically goes wrong, there's only one neck to choke.


Carbon is not that much different than Aluminum. I'm pretty sure the rack eyelets are stainless embedded in the carbon frame anyway.
