It has been massaged heavily (not for the faint at heart to cut and bend up a $80 rack). Basically I cut the rear mounting stud off flush and bent the side arms accordingly to clear my fender. The beauty of the velo orange vo randonneur rack is it has a fender mount underneath. So after it was all bent, set and re-aligned, I drilled a hole from below and bolted it up. The install is clean and VERY sturdy. As for the lights they are Sunlite LED units. I bought them as a close out from REI but they no longer have them, I checked today. They are available on Amazon for $11. Just google Sunlite LED bike light. These lights put out a pretty impressive amount of light for cheapie units. I figure once the batteries die I will find a way to wire them to my new dyno-hub.

- The rack is from Velo Orange, it is their house brand and the one shown in my pictures is the VO Pass hunter rack for $80, they also now sell one called the VO Randonneur for $80 which would require much less work to install. Let me know if you need any help.
