Commuters and bike tourists for whom versatility, durability and repairability are more important than weight, this is your front rack.
The Surly Nice Front Rack has two levels for hanging panniers. Most people will want to use the lower tubing, but you'll appreciate the option to adapt to road and trail conditions. And don't be shy about using the platform. This rack can carry up to 70 pounds.
Adjusts to fit from 26" to 29" wheels, and to forks equipped with drum, caliper, or cantilever brakes.
The main body of is made of tubular CroMoly steel. In the rare instance that this rack breaks, you should be able to find, even in the most remote regions of planet Earth, somebody to TIG, MIG, stickweld, braze or solder this rack back together. An aluminum rack won't afford you the same luxury.
Mounts directly to forks equipped with a midblade eyelet, located approximately 165mm from the dropout eyelet. This is a standard eyelet location found on many touring-specific forks. Includes hardware to securely mount on forks that do not have a midblade eyelet. You can mount it on almost any rigid fork, providing there is nothing in the way.
