I just put luggage racks on my /5. I was surprised to find that they are asymmetric: the left side has a sharp bend near the top of the shock that the right side does not. Just looking at the frame, the location of the wheel in the frame and so on, I can't, immediately see why.

This has got me very curious. Can any of you explain the asymmetry?
