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.

Chris B says...
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.
