Surly Front Rack

Stock status: 5+ in stock
A purchase of this item will earn you free stuff.

Commuters and bike tourists for whom versatility, durability and repairability are more important than weight, this is your front rack.

The Surly 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" wheel wheel with or without fenders, including all Surly forks except the Pugsley fork and Moonlander forks (due to the offset of the Pugsley fork driveside blade and the width of the Moonlander fork).

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.

The stock rack and hardware is designed to fit front racks mount to forks with mid-blade eyelets - about 165mm from the dropout. Most quality touring forks have these. Additional hardware maybe needed to accommodate other forks, and can be found here Surly Nice Front Rack Hardware Set.

For more information, refer to the Surly Front Rack Installation Instructions.

The best thing about the Surly Front Rack is that is is BOMBPROOF! Sturdy, strong and durable; it will do what you ask of it. Simple to install, it carries my panniers with ease. I also love the fact that I can strap a larger tent for crowds or a larger sleeping bag for colder weather on the top of the rack with security. I looked at many, many racks and chose this one for its practically Apocalyptic abilities to carry gear and stay stable. This unit is great for both carrying goods from the store to a complete camping outfit on long distance rides. I am glad I paid a little extra for one of this quality. It is now a permanent fixture on my bike.

Great rack, plenty stout and wide enough on top to lash on whatever. Mounted easily to my Novaro Randonee bike. Love it.

I've never installed a front rack like this before so it took me a couple of minutes checking it out but I had it on and ready to go shortly after. I like that I can put my panniers high or low. Very heavy duty and very large. Can't beat it

Surly rack on a Surly Disk Trucker with fenders. The rack needed a spacer but it went on the same eyelet as the fender. I had a large handle bar bag on it's maiden voyage that made it difficult to handle. After removing the handlebar bag everything was good. The new rack allowed me to put a top rack bag on the front rack and soled the handling issues

Awesome rack. Just returned from a 5-day trip in the Rocky Mountains. Carries my front panniers low and had to pack 8L water on top of the rack because of lack of easy access to water along our long climbs. Sturdy and sufficient.. Took a little trial/error to get it mounted due to extra parts but it is on solid. It does interfere a bit with my front BB7 arm but still works fine. Definitely recommend. It is a serious rack.
