Nitto MT 20 Campee Rear Rack.


The MT 20 was the first Nitto rack I saw in person.  Just one look, was all it took, and so on.  Nowadays a number of rack companies have coopted that which made the Nitto so unique and different back in the day.  The boxy shape supports panniers better than the triangle shape of 1980’s Blackburn racks.  The wide platform up top made of tubes, not a cheap looking slice of aluminum.  The round rack struts as opposed to stamped steel rack straps.  The brazed joints and the nickel finish.  All of it added up to quality and good looks.   When you mounted a lesser rack, you could grab it and wiggle it easily after install.  A Nitto rack was stiff, the bike flexes with it if anything flexes at all.  


Mounting a Nitto rack is a bit more involved than a rack with rack straps, but only because you might have to trim the rack stays.  If you do have to trim them, make sure you install the rack with the bike on a level surface, level the rack with a household level, THEN mark and cut the stays.  We use a vise and hacksaw, but a dremel works too.  Then a sharp flat file is used to re-round the ends of the stays.  You can get fancy with it and really round them off, or just deburr them and call it good.  


The MT 20 rack is the least expensive pannier rack from Nitto.  It’s perfect for a pair of panniers with nothing on the top of the platform.  You could strap something to the top, but it will be hard to get the panniers off, as the top and the pannier rails share the same real estate.  Fine for using big or mid sized panniers.
