      Comments about Nashbar Front Rack:

      Mounted on 700c fork with included hardware. Easy to mount to cantilever studs, but forming mounting bracket to not interfere with centerpull brakes was interesting. With NB lo-rider front rack, should provide ample front space and capacity for gear for any level of ride/tour. This rack is a great value and seems pretty sturdy.

        I bought this so I could "ditch the backpack" on my daily commute. Its perfect for a small cooler,uniforms,etc.,or stabilizing a large handlebar bag. Easy to install,and the price is right. Perfect for light bulky loads.

          Comments about Nashbar Front Rack:

          I really did not need this rack but I got it anyways. I have been using it lately to put a six pack on when I do a Packy Run, though I have thought of several other uses. I might secure a 50 Caliber Ammo can on it so I can place some tools etc in it, my gloves and lock it up so my stuff does not disappear. I commute with the bike I put this rack on (Motobecane Fantom Cross UNO)and it went on without any problems. There was ample hardware to get it on a number of makes and models of bicycles.

            Sweet little rack. Not sure what I'm going to use it for, but I always wanted one and the price was right. Took a while to set up. my v brake became crooked and it took a while for me to figure it out. Came with perfect little spacers to clear the brakes. very light and no logos.

            • Gets the weight lower
            • Leaves bars clamp free

              With a basket ziptied to it, it's down and out of the way. When carrying items lower, the bike handling improves. It makes a great place to store your helmet when your ride is over. It would be nice if this product was available with a basket

              Comments about Nashbar Front Rack:

              Practical. A little improvisation may be needed to figure out the best way to mount it on your bike. I've used it on occasion in conjunction with the Nashbar Front Bag and more typically as a general-purpose small cargo platform. It can support more than can a handlebar-attached basket.

              Nashbar ought to consider marketing it as the "Nashbar Six Pack Rack", because that's exactly how big it is.

              Cute, but forget about touring with it.

              Pros

              • Fits fork with long rakes
              • Fits weird shaped front

              Cons

              • Wears Out Quickly

              Best Uses

              • Light mini panniers

              Comments about Nashbar Front Rack:

              I put 2 custom long panniers on this thing for a 400k tour. The panniers had no more than 5 lbs at any time as I just used it for tools. The racks main bolt came out and I had to use a ziptie. By the end of the tour the supports were completely twisted and hitting my tire. Only good for very light usage, but what do you expect for the price.

                I put it on a folding bike and it was right on. Not even the included hardware was needed. Ordered two more.

                Comments about Nashbar Front Rack:

                Mine lasted a year or so. Perhaps I am just hard on my equipment, but I managed to break the arm that attaches to the center of the fork (which I replaced with a beefier one, no problem), then the deck snapped off from the front of the rack's frame. Not having a TIG welding set handy, I had to retire it at that point. I'm not sure I ever carried more than 10lb on it, but I did have a VistaLite 5-LED front light/reflector mounted to the hole in the front, which probably contributed to the rack's final breakage.

                Don't mount a headlight to the front and this rack will be fine.

                    Nice rack, weel built, would recommend. I added a high gloss clear coat to match my frame as the stock paint is flat. Reminds me of a Blackburn rack, just as good.
