Recent e-bike purchaser looking for your recs for a rear rack.

My new bike is a road/gravel drop-bar style bike outfitted with 34mm 29ers, so the tires are not fat by any means, but with the motor hub, the braze-ons near the rear axle are about 220mm apart.
I'm noticing that many racks online give no dimensions or say something like 'up to a 3" tire', which is not helpful when I need the actual strut width.

I would love to find something relatively no frills/simple in design, which seems a little harder to come by the wider you go.

What racks have worked for your wider hub, but not fat tire e-bikes??

Racks are pretty flexible when it comes to width. You can push and pull them to fit your bike.

Yes, if the general size is close then this is possible, but anything more than a few mm is going to affect the integrity of the rack. I'm not about to go and buy a rack with 130mm spacing and wrench it open to 230mm! So I'm looking for a starting point :)
