Wasn't excited about this rack bypassing my rack mount points and using its own rod through the rear wheel, but it seems to be working fine. Since my Synapse lacks any mount points near the seat post, the seat post is an odd size for a new collar, I kinda had to jerry-rig attaching the top of the rack to the seat stem. It would've been nice if this came with more flexible hardware to mount directly around the seat stem (a simple, adjustable collar or something). Overall happy for the price.
