Two views of my new Cruzbike Silvio. I know there have been some questions about which rack I mounted over my rear wheel. It's an Old Man Mountain rack (made to fit over a conventional front wheel) that fits very nicely.
And wonder of wonders! I just came across a 1986 catalog (as I clean up around here and discover long-unseen bits of floor) that has in it a trunk bag that is designed for this short rack. Worth checking out, if it's still being made.
And it is! Rivendell Bicycle Works in Walnut Creek, California now has a website at www.rivendellbicycles.com on which is featured their Li'l Loafer for $87. It's a trunk bag that mounts on a shorter rack (length appears to be 9.5 inches). Looks to be sized just right for my Silvio, and should solve a big problem--if the sloping rear of the seat doesn't block it. We'll see.
