ah right, makes sense...
this is my unorthodox take on the front rack.
fit for a princess
a pretty one.
How is the handling affected with panniers that high?
probably somewhere halfway between lowriders and laden porteur rack.
Mosquito just quoted me £159 for the soma porteur rack with a 50% deposit.
That's more than my tubus + ortliebs combined!
There must be a better deal! Anyone!?
A friend of mine just got his from USA, price was $210
These things can be as expensive as a frame
@spotter bought the last few UK ones..
@7Üp I purchased my Soma Porteur rack from singlespeedshop.com for 140.95 EUR shipped:
It was damn pricey, but I couldn't find it anywhere else. Days later, @spotter found a guy selling a few on eBay for £80 delivered!
I saw those eBay sales!! I remember thinking 'next week'...
This rack set is amazing!
from GILLES BERTHOUD.
the vintage ones are super nice. its a shame they dont do them like that anymore. to get the same effect you have to use a low rider and a rack, which costs mad €€€.
I have just bought one of these
I will report back once it arrives. I imagine it'll be fairly flimsy but I just want something to hold a bag for the summer.
does look pretty flimsy, but i guess you cant argue with the price.
Velo Orange do a combined front rack and lowrider but yes, mad $$$
If it was sold in $ here in the UK, it'd cost £135, which isn't bad for a full tough front rack like that. But usually someone just replaces the $ with the £ :/
yeah, but it does have a decaleur thingy
nitto do a couple quite similar, pretty into this one, but looks like over kill for light touring.
lots of options though..
That Velo Orange rack is in stock at Freshtripe for £140. I got the Nitto Campee which is basically the same but with removable low riders (this is awesome) from Benscycle.
Not bad at £140 indeed! Bit overkill as @JT stated for light touring, but I think it's a good price. Their stuff is solid stuff throughout.
Btw these guys should hire a SEO.
Did plenty of Google/Bing searches and they NEVER came up as shops selling racks!
Also, I know it's not the right place, but I'm gonna put up for sale soon a VO Randonneur Front Rack which I've never used. If anyone's interested, let me know.
what about something like this from nitto? hoop is a little funky tho
