If you want to just buy this piece of hardware once in your life, buy the Atoc.
The Atoc is around $200, but you'll pass this think down to your
grandkids. It's made in USA (WA state) and is far and away the most
durable/dependable tray you can get. It's make with tig-welded steel
stock and is super tough and simple. My favorite kind of design.
It fits the Thule or Yakima bars and is also designed to handle forks
with low-rider panniers and/or fenders, which the majority of other
trays do not allow you to carry.
You can *just* see the fender (with folded mudflap) on the xtracycle

I have no financial affiliation with Atoc. Just a very satisfied customer.
