About Pannier Racks
Bicycle racks give your bike versatility, it means you can go shopping, commute to work with a change of clothes, or go touring. It's safer and more comfortable to carry weight on the bike, rather than in a backpack. It keeps the centre of gravity low down and means less weight on your hands and bum. A good quality rack will support either a rack pack or, for larger loads, a pair of panniers. Racks which fit directly onto the frame are best, but for full suspension models, seat post mounted racks are also very effective. Disc brakes are also no longer a problem, with more and more brands making disc specific bicycle racks.

Product Q & A

It makes more sense to me that the V-type, having a downward bend would be more suitable to larger frames where the distance between the top of the wheel and available seatpost to clamp the rack onto is larger. This would allow any luggage to sit with a lower centre of gravity without interfering witht the wheel. However with smaller frames there is less clearance space and so a rack without a drop must be used, which means the use of a E or A-type rack. In my mind using the V-type with the drop angle would risk the rack coming into contact with the rear wheel, particularly on full suspension setups. To me this is much more logical.
So, to clarify, would you still suggest the V-type for smaller frames?
I Googled as many images of the rack as I could find and compared the rake (?) of the seat post in the pics against my bike. As the angle seemed right I took the plunge and it worked out well. Not sure if all bike seat posts are the same angle. Refer to pic.
