Hi, has anyone experience with the new Pelago aluminium front rack? Im thinking about getting the one in size S
I have a JTek rack from SJS brand new going spare. Cost £18 + delivery will take £10 collected in N London
Yep! Been after one of these.
Am riding up to Shoreditch later, might persuade my companion to go a bit further, otherwise will collect within a few days.
I've considered that, but I'd like to try all other options before using clamps.
Oh the attachment do clear the ends of the fork. I've attached a picture from a different angle, might be clearer from there. But there is still a big gap between the fork and the rack ends.
Good idea, I'll do a post on the steamroller thread too.
Aluminium is brittle and delicate - not a great long term rack material.
Sure the steel racks are tougher but Pelago dont make the narrowest one in steel. And black size M are out of stock.
I had spec pizza rack for two years, but I didnt use it much, eventualy sold it.
Can anyone recommend a front rack for a cantilever braked Spesh Tricross please? Looking for something similar size to the Spesh Pizza Rack mount.
Anyone compare the Pelago front rack with this BLB front rack ?https://www.bricklanebikes.co.uk/blb-t-rack-matt-black
They look pretty much identical but the BLB rack is quite a bit cheaper.
Also, anyone use and prefer the Pelago Rasket over the racks? Haven't seen many people use the Rasket and just wondering if anyone has anything bad to say on their build vs the Pelego racks.
One is lighter and of substantially higher quality than the other.
One also rusts instantly, despite claiming to be made of ‘stainless steel’.
Thanks, noted. On second look the BLB isn't that much cheaper as the one I linked is smaller in size to the big Pelago.
But I'm assuming you mean the lighter, higher quality one which doesn't rust is the Pelago...

Pelago if not
