The VO Porteur Rack is a traditional-style rack as used on the famed Parisian newspaper delivery bikes. Those Parisian delivery bikes were reputed to carry as much as 110lbs. of newspapers on similar racks (of course, the bikes had strengthened frames and forks, not just racks).

Our Porteur Rack is made from strong stainless steel tubing and polished to a lovely shine. It won't rust like painted steel racks or fatigue and crack like aluminum racks. The quality is actually superior to that of many custom racks. In short, this is a real load-carrying rack, not an aluminum "style-rack". Yet total weight with rail, nuts, bolts, etc. is only 1.079kg.

The platform is about 36cm x 29cm. A removable rail attachment is included and very handy for smaller packages.

The tangs are pre-drilled to fit 700c, 27", 26", and 650b bikes. There are four bosses for a light attachment. There is a boss for securing your fender to the rack -- no rattling! Please also note the elegant pannier/tie-down loops above the mounting tangs.

Mounting hardware is included. The Porteur Rack mounts to the dropout eyelet and the brake bolt (or fork crown hole). Max weight with this configuration is 25 lbs.

Yup…

Incredible decision to purchase this rack.

Decent, but heavy and with large gaps (it's easy for stuff to fall through).

I like this rack – it looks good, the technically-removable rim is a great feature, and it seem sturdy. It attaches to my axel pretty well.

Installation instructions, or a link to them, really need to be included. There's like 4 different kinds of screws and I have no idea which one goes where. If you buy it, definitely try to look up a youtube video or something (I still haven't tried).

Almost too good looking

I wanted a front rack for my commuter that would hold a bag of groceries. There are cheaper racks out there, but I don't think there are BETTER racks. It bolted right on, and fit pretty well on my 650b bike. But I wanted a perfect fit, so I dropped the lower mounting down one bolt hole, and cut off the extra material for skewer clearance. Now, it fits perfectly! This is too good looking for a commuter bike!

High quality, and very solid!

A finely crafted front rack that can stand up to heavy cargo hauling!
