This is a stainless steel front rack that is perfect for a handlebar bag, tied-down dry bag, or basket.
All Velo Orange racks are made from polished tubular stainless steel, so they will never rust, flake, and can be re-polished to a mirror shine even after years of use. As with our other racks, there are light mounts on the side of the platform. The platform is 20.7 cm long and 10.2 cm wide. The tombstone (backstop) is 9.5 cm tall. The rack weighs 318 gr.
If you plan on getting into offroad exploration, we suggest using a toe strap on the bottom of your bag to ensure it says put over the rough stuff.
If you are getting a custom frame made, we suggest sending the rack to the builder beforehand.
12lbs (5.4kg) max weight capacity.
All mounting hardware is included. Installation instructions found here.
This rack requires the use of cantilever brake bosses. Works best with canti posts that are between 75 and 80 mm wide. Use our Randonneur Front Rack if you don't have cantilever brakes.
Please note: mounting our rack to Paul Component brakes requires the use of Paul's special rack bolts and spacers.

Randonneur Front Rack, Cantilever
Someone stole the first one, because it is such a beautiful rack. I missed it so much I had to get another, and I used loctite this time so hopefully it’s a little harder to steal.
Slapped it on a Bridgestone mb3 super easily. The bracket has to be customized a bit but got it fit and feels sturdy. Works great with the wald 137 basket for light groceries
Fitted to an old (1982) Trek 420 modified with cantilever brakes. Fit well even with narrow post spacing (~70 mm). Looks great.
Had to bend the arms that attach to the front break mounts to clear the fender. Would have fit fine without a fender.
