"closer to skintight than i was expecting - if you want baggy, go for the Altura mayhem (which i have done, and am very happy with). other than that these are great shorts, and perfect if you want loose, rather than baggy."

Stainless-Steel Rear Carrier: Designed on the principle that the load needs to be carried lower and further aft to provide maximum heel clearance without compromising stability. Constructed of tig welded tubular stainless tubing: the result is an extremely attractive and durable rack.
 

will this rack fit a Trek 2012 8.5 DS

just want to check if this will fit a 2012 model 8.5 DS with disc brakes, and whether I will be able to mount the Topeak Drybag panniers on it, and if any additional fittings are needed?

What is the height of the bottle please? I have limited space due to a small frame and I'm wondering if the insulation makes this bottle bigger than..

... a "normal" 610ml bottle?
the insulation is surprisingly thin, and this fitts into a standard sized bottle carrier without any problem,

Does it work with pannier rack?

I wish to know if this mudguard works with a pannier rack (for rear wheel). If not, what other brands would work?
it dpeends on the width of the wheel arch in your rear rack. I have fitted it to my tubus Cargo rear rack using cable ties rather than the original moutning and it works great
