Nitto M-18The M18 is made of Cromo steel. So it is very strong because it can carry a load of up to 8 kg. It fits on many forks because of the flexible connection on the front legs and on the crown piece. To make sure the paint doesn't get damaged there are rubber bands on the fork to protect it. Finely finished rack, much imitated but there is only 1 Nitto! The rack weighs 350gram.More info & order

Randonneur Front Rack with Integrated DecaleurThis is a stainless steel front rack that is perfect for a handlebar bag. The decaleur (bag mount receiver) is integrated into the rack platform. The advantage to this system is: your bag-decaleur-rack combination is more solid, lighter, and less likely to rattle. Integration is the Holy Grail of Constucteur-style bikes, and we feel that these racks are a big step in that direction. All Velo Orange racks are made from polished tubular stainless steel, so they will never rust, flake, and can be re-polished to a mirror shine even after years of use. As with our other racks, there are mounts for lights. The platform is 20.7 cm long and 10.2 cm wide. Most traditional style handlebar bags work perfectly with this rack (any bag around 20cm tall), but very tall bags may need a longer bag mount. If you plan on getting into offroad exploration, we suggest using a toe strap on the bottom of the bag to ensure it says put over the rough stuff. This rack requires eyelets (not low riders) on the fork blades or the use of p-clamps (included). If you are getting a custom frame made, we suggest sending the rack to the builder beforehand and let them know that the eyelets should be about 100mm below the bottom of the fork crown. 12lbs (5.4kg) max weight capacity. All mounting hardware is included. Compatibility note: Your fork's eyelets need to be 100mm from the fork crown bolt. Anything larger than that and this rack probably won't work. In that case, we suggest the VO Flat Pack Rack for greater adjustability.More info & order

Porteur RackThe VO Porteur Rack is a traditional-style rack as used on the famed Parisian newspaper delivery bikes. Those Parisian delivery bikes were reputed to carry as much as 110lbs. of newspapers on similar racks (of course, the bikes had strengthened frames and forks, not just racks). Our Porteur Rack is made from strong stainless steel tubing and polished to a lovely shine. It won't rust like painted steel racks or fatigue and crack like aluminum racks. The quality is actually superior to that of many custom racks. In short, this is a real load-carrying rack, not an aluminum "style-rack". Yet total weight with rail, nuts, bolts, etc. is only 1.079kg. The platform is about 36cm x 29cm. A removable rail attachment is included and very handy for smaller packages. The tangs are pre-drilled to fit 700c, 27", 26", and 650b bikes. There are four bosses for a light attachment. There is a boss for securing your fender to the rack -- no rattling! Please also note the elegant pannier/tie-down loops above the mounting tangs. Mounting hardware is included. The Porteur Rack mounts to the dropout eyelet and the brake bolt (or fork crown hole). Max weight with this configuration is 25 lbs. You can use our Straight Arms for Campeur Racks, Compression Hardware, and a pair of p-clamps around the rack's tube if you are running super heavy loads and want more stability. You can load it up with 40 lbs of gear if you use this configuration.More info & order

The platform is 20cm long and 10cm wide. The tombstone (backstop) is 9.5cm tall. There are three holes in the lower tang so that it can be cut to give your bike a real Constructeur-style. 6.8kg maximum weight capacity. Please note: This rack does not fit suspension forks.More info & order

Flat Pack RackThe Velo Orange Flat Pack Rack is designed to be super strong and adaptable, allowing it to be neatly mounted on nearly any bike with rack mounts on the fork blades. Adjustability is accomplished by employing sliding stays and darumas to dial in the position and level of the rack. With so many forks out there riddled with eyelets and holes for low-riders and 3-pack mounts, you can choose where the rack will mount. The platform is known as a “demi-porteur”. Its size is somewhere between a full Porteur and traditional Randonneur front rack. The main benefit to the demi-porteur style is better stabilization for large Randonneur Handlebar Bags as well as better support for baskets and large, bikepacking bags. The uprights are removable and can be interchanged between a decaleur receiver for a Randonneur-style handlebar bag and a tombstone loop for a basket or other luggage. When disassembled, it can fold almost completely flat - which is really useful for travel where space is at a premium. The Flat Pack Rack mounts to the fork crown using a little do-dad we call a Foot. This beefy mount sits flat against the fork crown and is also mounted to a daruma-style receiver, so it can slide up or down and in and out depending on your clearance needs. The lower portion of the stays are curved in such a way that they can mount flush on the side of your fork's blades. Additionally, the front of the rack features a braze-on for a light mount. The kit includes all the hardware you need to install the rack on most bikes: Four aluminum alloy stays - use two for a weight capacity of 12 lbs or use all four for a weight capacity of up to 17 lbs. Five daruma assemblies Decaleur receiver Backstop Foot with M6 bolt, washer, and nylock nut Screws for fork mounting Details: Platform size: 27.5cm x 20.3cm Weight (including all hardware): 708g Material: Stainless steel platform, backstop, and mounting hardware. Aluminum alloy stays and daruma. Weight capacity: 12lbs with two stays / 17lbs with all four staysMore info & order
