Another tip: the better (European) designs of carrier have a fitting for a rear lamp/reflector, from which it is also possible to suspend the mudguard, doing away with the near-vertical stay and substituting a much shorter and hence more stable stay support from above.


Now that sounds a good idea, CJ. Any chance of a picture?

Here's one I made earlier.

It's not one of those European carriers, but one that I've drilled (and tapped) a couple of M5 holes in a similar place, to where one of those European carriers already has a couple of holes.
