Surly Nice Rear Rack

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

Weight weenies, move on. This isn't for you.

However, if versatility, durability and repairability are more important to you than a rack's weight, the CroMoly steel Surly Nice Rear Rack is for you.

Simple to fine tune to the best angle for your panniers and eliminate any heel clearance issues.

Whether you're a commuter, a tourist, or a utility cyclists, you can ride with through ice, snow, rain and blazing sunshine. This rack will resist rust and corrosion for thousands of miles.

Superficiality aside, this rack is strong. Carry up to 80 pounds -- your daily commuter load, your self-sustained-world-tour gear, or bundles of firewood (if you can figure out how to lash them to the rack).

The Nice Rear Rack is height-adjustable, enabling it to fit a wide variety wheel sizes while allowing you to move its center of gravity as low as possible for a more stable ride.

The platform is six inches wide, providing plenty of room for rack-top bags, rack-top cases, rack packs, and sleeping bags.

The stainless steel hardware provided will enable you to fit the rack to most rigid 26" and 700c frames.

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 a this rack back together. An aluminum rack won't afford you the same luxury.

Surly Nice Rack Instructions Surly includes all the hardware not to confuse you, but to allow fit versatility between many different types of frames on the market. The rack height is adjustable, so it will fit onto most road and off-road frames that utilize 26" 29" wheels.

Disc brakes and rear suspension are generally not compatible with Surly rear Racks.

This thing is nice, really nice. I've never had such a heavy duty rack. This thing is a tank, I love it. It was really easy to install. The only problem I had was after I bought my Burley flatbed trailer. I had to grind a little bit of the mounting tube because it was hitting my hitch. It was an easy fix. I think my disc brakes were part of my problem. I believe it was worth every penny.

I purchased this rack for my Surly Cross Check to match my front Surly Nice Rack. I use the bike for commuting and I have been very happy with it. Surly racks are not the lightest, but they are well made and strong. I load it down with panniers and other things get strapped on in the middle. They are nice and wide and this is a plus for me.
