Bicycle Bill

Back when Pletscher racks were the standard for bicycles, they too had the V-style brackets to attach to the seatstays; and they too were prone to sliding down the stays until the rack was resting on the brake arms or the top of the tire.  At that time we solved the problem using a triangular metal brace with holes at each corner, similar to this: http://harriscyclery.net/images/library/catalogs/soc/prodl/RK0123.jpg
The brace was installed point down and attached to the brake bolt, and the V-bracket and bolts holding the bike rack were fastened through the other two holes on the triangular brace, which held the whole assembly in place and solved the sliding problem.
