Here is a similar example of what the rack looks like on my bicycle. It feels pretty solid with no play when I move it with my hands. On all the rack mounted bike builds I noticed that they are custom, welded and bolted together and other forms of ingenuity as well. Is that because normal bike racks are not strong enough? Is it worth using an existing rack and putting it over the front wheel of my bike or should I make a steel plate?
