It's also gonna feature the hundred millimeter spacing that fits most bikes.

When it comes to the construction, it's a powder-coated aluminum construction that's very strong and durable, and it's gonna do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion, and looking good for a long time. Mounting hardware's not included, but to get it mounted, you'll just need to use two mounting screws.
