The Velo Orange Flat Pack Rack is designed to be super strong and adaptable, allowing it to be neatly mounted on nearly any bike with rack mounts on the fork blades. 

Adjustability is accomplished by employing sliding stays and darumas to dial in the position and level of the rack. With so many forks out there riddled with eyelets and holes for low-riders and 3-pack mounts, you can choose where the rack will mount.

The platform is known as a “demi-porteur”. Its size is somewhere between a full Porteur and traditional Randonneur front rack. The main benefit to the demi-porteur style is better stabilization for large Randonneur Handlebar Bags as well as better support for baskets and large, bikepacking bags.

The uprights are removable and can be interchanged between a decaleur receiver for a Randonneur-style handlebar bag and a tombstone loop for a basket or other luggage.

When disassembled, it can fold almost completely flat - which is really useful for travel where space is at a premium. 

The Flat Pack Rack mounts to the fork crown using a little do-dad we call a Foot. This beefy mount sits flat against the fork crown and is also mounted to a daruma-style receiver, so it can slide up or down and in and out depending on your clearance needs.

The lower portion of the stays are curved in such a way that they can mount flush on the side of your fork's blades.

Additionally, the front of the rack features a braze-on for a light mount.

The kit includes all the hardware you need to install the rack on most bikes:

  • Four aluminum alloy stays - use two for a weight capacity of 12 lbs or use all four for a weight capacity of up to 17 lbs.
  • Five daruma assemblies
  • Decaleur receiver
  • Backstop
  • Foot with M6 bolt, washer, and nylock nut
  • Screws for fork mounting

Details: 

  • Platform size: 27.5cm x 20.3cm
  • Weight (including all hardware): 708g
  • Material: Stainless steel platform, backstop, and mounting hardware. Aluminum alloy stays and daruma.
  • Weight capacity: 12lbs with two stays / 17lbs with all four stays
  • Finish: Available in Polished Silver and Noir

Installation instructions can be found here. We are also including a safety strap in each rack package. Installation instructions for the strap can be found here.

Notes: Installation requires a fork crown that is drilled all the way through. Because of the thickness of the Foot, the rack may not work with sidepull and centerpull rim brakes.

Great Rack for my Space Horse

Fits a 2023 All City Space Horse (disc, 58 cm) well, with clearance for PDW 700x45 fenders. I had zero problems installing. It hasn't gotten loose, but I may put some threadlocker on it, as I don't plan to disassemble. I'm very excited to see that Waxwing Bag Company makes a rando-style bag just for this rack.

Great rack once i figured out how to install it!

Hi!
i bought the rack in store actually at your MD place where i was earlier this summer. Finally installed it. I do wonder however if there was something wrong with the package, since it had 4 of the lower supports of the same length to be fastened to the fork, rather than 2 each of different lengths, which is what the website seemed to list. Also, it would really have been helpful to have had either a downloadable or a packed page with drawings and instructions, a la IKEA, so that users know how to install it. I managed to figure it out after a while, but it was not immediately obvious and less experienced users would surely appreciate directions in how to get it mounted. The picture did help, but still it was a bit fiddly. However, it is a fabulous rack, and I am happy with it. So far very stable. will use an old inner tube as a bungee.

Best, Marion Grau

Nice Rack

Nice platform for just about any use. Perfect for my limited edition 18 can Coleman cooler rando bag as well as any size Wald basked your heart desires.
Install Tip: Bend the fork crown "foot" stay down to achieve a sexy french-fender-esque fit.

versatile design

this is working well for me thus far installed on a Surly Straggler, using the brake mount at the top of the fork and rack mounts at roughly the center of the fork blades. Look out for the angle of attachment using the brake mount at the top of the fork, as it can interfere with the rotation of the headset. the mounting hardware and methodology should work many different configurations. If there was any improvement to be made I would appreciate the option to mount the front supports wider out on the rack, but this is not a critical feature. Thanks VeloORANGE for a great product.

Flat Pack Rack Packs Flat

Love it! The Flat Pack Rack is attached to my Neutrino, which adds another cargo option. I’m now awaiting delivery of my Wald 137 basket (OOS on VO), which I ordered from a large online retailer that everybody knows.
It was pretty easy to assemble and attach the rack to my Neutrino. I used a tube cutter instead of a hack saw to trim the stay length then filed slightly with a borrowed dremel tool.
