I see far more problems (not just with racks) that have the rider's lack of doing periodic maintenance as the root issue that if done differently (as in taken better care of their bikes) would have avoided the problems either all together or at a rate that's only wear related.

We have a term for the rider's not noticing a budding problem, they only know of it when something stops working as it should. JRA, as in I was just riding along.

The point some of try to make often here is that a bike that's paid attention to and gets periodic cleaning/servicing is a far more reliable, safe and fun bike then one that's only dealt with when something breaks. Andy
