In this clip I’m going to show you how to install a rear rack on the back of your bike. And these really come in handy especially when you are going on long trips. You can pack extra food, extra water or even extra clothes. Now the first step what you are going to want to do is put the rear bolts through the threaded inserts on the frame. Now once you have both sides of the lower bolts snug up and ready to go then you are ready to move on to the next step, which is installing the bolts on the top. Now the racks will have these rods that come out and actually mount to the top of the rack and then into the top of the bike frame here. So similar to the bottom the next step you are going to want to put these top bolts in on the frame. And once you have the top bolts securely fastened, the last thing you do is level out your rack and then tighten up the bolts that are actually on to the rack. So just get the bike on the ground kind of give a little nudge in the back until you are rack is level with the ground, once it is, tighten up the bolts on top and then you are ready to go and that's all there is to it and that is how you install a rack on the back of a bike.
