Those racks sounds like a good alternative, but at $237.50 each - those are expensive eyelets. I am a huge believer in specific bikes for specific duties (or cameras, guitars, shoes, golf clubs - I mean, ANYTHING, right?). A cross bike is perfect for 90% of what most anyone does on a bike - commuting included. But to put a rack on a Moots crosser - such a beautiful piece of engineering perfection is (to me) a crime. Any more than I would put aero bars on one.
There are plenty of reliable, relatively inexpensive light duty 'touring' or commuting bikes available at not much more than the cost of the eyelets and rack. To me, the spot on solution.
