Nazca Fuego rack fitting

Postby hercule » 14 Oct 2018, 7:57pm

I’m trying to figure out how to fit the Fuego underseat rack - unfortunately the only instructions I can find are in Dutch and I’m worried I might miss something...

Specifically, it’s fitting the forward mounting point. I’m a bit worried that by undoing the bolts holding the aluminium plates that the whole bike will fall to bits! I presume I need a spacer on the left side, but what about on the right?

Enlightenment much appreciated!

Got any photos of the bike/fitting and/or scans of the destructions?
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

Kit of parts shown here, if that helps?

hercule: you could always ask David Gardiner at Laidback.

Edit: just found a set of fitting instructions in English - see your PM

I'm trying to remove the underseat rack from my Gaucho (don't need it on at the moment), but am running into difficulties! I have got one of the main front bolts out (the right one), but the other one is still screwed into the nut which is inside the frame. This nut is spinning around when I try to undo it. Does this mean that I need to take the whole frame apart in order to grasp the nut and stop it turning?

I've emailed Nazca, but I thought it might be worth asking here too.

Problem solved! Nazca replied very quickly. I poured boiling water over the tube which the bolts are screwed into, to soften the loctite. After that I was able to grip the tube with pliers to stop it spinning, and unscrew the other bolt. Nevertheless, I do think it is an odd design.
