I can post a pair if needed. just opened up a ql2.1 bracket but I'm actually going to be using the ql1. Sure I have more somewhere too
Two pairs would be ideal, but a pair can do! Will PM
Do we know people that sew or have sewn bikepacking packs? I got myself a 30sqm sail with som minor tears and plan to sew them into a set. But I struggle to find fitting cutting instructions. Otherwise I need to try and error.
I think there are various articles on Bikepacking.com and other sites - you're probably best making up a cardboard mock up of what you want first so you can work out the dimensions, before you start cutting and sewing the fabric you have!
Have a look at this thread if you haven't already: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/194843/
At least a handful of forummongers have done that, if you do a search you'll find something, otherwise ask the same question there.
I like the look of the reversed saddle bag.
Any opinions on the timtas ahead spacer front rack?
Seem useful if a little expensive for a slightly larger handlebar bag support.
Good, but with flaws.
First one that arrived was functional but not in line, poorly finished and wonky, ttr claim it was a proto or a Friday job and thought I wanted a rack quickly so just shipped that...
It functioned, but I could not hack it sitting wonky especially being in eye sight constantly!
Klickfix bags are better, not quite as snug to the bar/pretty though
A friend of mine looks for a affordable rack thats suitable for a carbon racebike. Working with quick releases and no mounts on the bike. Any ideas? The nitto one won't fit.
Just seen this, try Straight Cut, based in Edinburgh, well made, have a stock size, but for an additional fee Ross will make to whatever size you need. Comes with a HDPE insert too, so no more saggy bar bags.
Anyone good a good suggestion for a wide front rack (like pizza rack but thinner tubes) which can also handle panniers?
Is it QR rim brake? Axiom make a few options. Could also be made to work with a disc bike if it has the equivalent of a brake bridge bolt hole or you can fit a rack eyelet seat clamp.
Thru-Axle no idea beyond A very spendy Tailfin.
Tubus disco, fit on QR at the bottom, with stays attached to some sturdy p.clips on rubber strips to stop carbon-gouge. Great for bracing a saddlebag if it’ll reach to there, as well as panniers or racktop bag.
Many thanks thats a good start
Somehow those pelago racks do look a bit low budget despite their price
I assume thats due to the screw-on side mounts...
Cheers. Will look elsewhere.
BLB has something similar but I do not know if you can use it for panniers as it is not mentioned. https://www.bricklanebikes.co.uk/blb-t-rack-silver
If you find something better/nicer/cheaper, let me know as I’m waiting for a discount on the pelago one before ordering.
Pelago > BLB. The BLB rack is def more low budget and more badly made compared to the Pelago one. The BLB was a pain to install even semi straight as the welds were so bodged.
