Pannier rack blocked by quick release bolts

Hi

 

A week or two ago I posted about getting a pannier rack on here. Well I have the pannier rack but it is not fitting because the eyelet on the frame and the quick release bolts on both sides seem to be too close to each other (https://puu.sh/CcmY8/a3410b13a0.png)

 

This is the mounting point on the rack: https://puu.sh/Ccn2A/38f931901f.png another angle: https://puu.sh/Ccn3a/ea9fafdcc7.png

 

So basically it sits here: https://puu.sh/Ccn5D/cc155b93f4.png and as you can see the bolt is in the way of the one corner. The other side of the wheel is the same story.

 

Does one get QR bolts/levers that are slightly smaller? I really don't want to angle grind that corner off the rack mount.

 

Any ideas would be great.

Does the QR not go through that extension on the bottom of the rack?

You will need a longer QR skewer in order for the rack to be tightened against the frame.

I would not use the hole depicted for a rack,  That is for mud guard fixing I think.

I thought of that but it is not designed to do that as the mounting points on the rack are hollow on the outside so the bolt wouldn't have anything to grip onto. Also the rack comes with bolts to mount it.

Thinking about this some more, what you suggest might be possible. I'll bring it up at the bike shop. Thanks

This is how it should work.  Yours might be different but I don't think so.
