I had to remove part of that bracket shown in the photo above. Mudguards and rear rack all fit ok too. If I can figure out how to add a photo later ...

No issues plug and play. For your front rack you might prefer a different front light mount. SJS cycles has a ...

Re: London Bike Fitter

Thanks, I didn’t manage to find any post from Colin531 but will search again later. I believe the pain is as a result of hills when I ride for more than an hour; I can feel it coming on during and shortly after the steeper inclines that I stay seated for.
