The height-adjustable front rack is designed for both low and high riders. When pannier bags are mounted in the low rider position, they provide a stable ride, but can be a bit of a problem on rocky or rutted trails. The top rail of the rack is designed to provide space for changing bags in these situations. In addition, the upper structure of the rack is designed to increase the carrying capacity. The upper structure also allows for additional carrying capacity and is ideal for attaching a lightweight sleeping bag or small tent if space is otherwise limited.
The rack itself is 165mm from the dropout and attaches directly to the fork via a bladed dowel in the middle of the rack, a standard mounting position on many touring forks, including frames such as the LONG HAUL TRUCKER. The lower plate shape has also been modified (starting with the 2.0 version) to accommodate TROLL, OGRE and DISC TRUCKER frames with disc brakes, so that the lower plate does not hit the brake calipers.
Mounting hardware is included for all sizes of LONG HAUL TRUCKER frames (42cm-62cm), so it should be easy to install on your frame. The wide construction provides plenty of room for pannier bags, sleeping bags, tents, food containers, small baskets, and more.
The NICE RACK is powder-coated black or silver for corrosion resistance and good looks, and the included stainless steel hardware is compatible with most rigid frames from 26" to 700c and forks with drum, caliper, or cantilever brakes.
If your fork does not have eyelets in the mid-blade, purchase the SURLY Front Mid Blade Adaptor Kit separately.
