Avenir Rear Road Bike Rack
Sturdy but be inventive
This is a well made product and in the end, I think it's going to be just fine, but not all bikes are made the same way with the same attachment points, etc.
I was looking to put this on my daughter's mountain bike and will have to figure out some way to mount it under the seat post as it doesn't seem to be a direct fit.
If it works for your bike, I would recommend it, but be aware that it might not or you might (like me) have to do some jury rigging to make it work.

I am getting ready to be a full time bicyclist and I purchased this item to assist in my commute. The install was easy and it seems to suit my purpose so far.

Love this little rack. Feels nice and sturdy on the bike. Just a basic rack but lives up to that. Didn't want one with a lot of gimicky bells and whistles

I use this product to attach anything to it using bungee cords or an elastic net thing. I can also attach my panniers to it. The rack was easy to install on the bike. I needed something to bridge between the metal straps and the knockouts, so I straightened out the d-clamps and they were perfect, allowing the rack to sit level. I made the junctions very tight, but realize the weight load should be no more than 10 lbs, I suppose. I think the metal straps should be longer so improvisation would not be required.

needs more attachment points for bungees
lightweight and sturdy, but needs more attachment points for bungee cords.

The rack was easy to install and feels sturdy. I wish the rack came with lock washers instead of lock bolts.

Strong and works great
After a couple of months of using this several times a week for my 28 mile commute to work, the rack is rock solid. I have no issues whatsoever. I'm not sure if I have exceeded the 40 lb rating or not, but I've probably come close. Oh, and it looks great!

Light and original
Could be a little cheaper in price, but its light and does not add much weight on the bike it self.
