I am dead chuffed to now have my new rack fitted on my bike and the bag that started me off on this journey of learning.
In the end, we decided to remove the lock on back wheel, attach tubus roundstays from rack to a new seat clamp and use the fitting shown on one of the posts, which fixed the mudguard to the rack where the reflector is fitted on the back.
If it wasn’t for all the helpful advice you all gave me on here, I would never have known all these bits and pieces were readily available.
Thanks again for your help.
For discussions about bikes and equipment.
I'm glad to learn that it's all worked out OK. The rack, bag and SnapIt system look like typical good German products, and I hope you get a lot of satisfaction from using them. The rack is also much stronger than your previous one, so if you find that on occasion you want to carry more than the bag can accommodate I would suggest getting a pair of the Ortlieb panniers like those to which I linked above.

Trying to retain enough fitness to grow old disgracefully... That hasn't changed!
