It really sounds like the quality issues are with the bike, rather than with the Bumot pannier racks.
On my '17 the Bumot pannier racks were a breeze to install, like under 30 minutes and I was done. I've had mine for about a year and I'm very happy with the racks & panniers (and locking tool box) - I'd happily go with Bumot again!
