Wanted - Front rack like a surly 8 pack.

Post by macskive » Tue Aug 13, 2019 6:41 pm

I am looking for a front rack to fit on my surly straggler. Ideally something similar to the surly 8 pack but at a more reasonable price. I just need something big enough to strap a drybag too and I won't be carrying panniers.

Thanks all.

Interested in this, I sold ( stupidly) my Salsa minimalist rack last year,
And would like to replace it, all I've found is the specialised pizza rack,
One by origin 8 from the states and another u/s offering from Soma,
The latter 2 having no Uk stock, there is a cheap offering on eBay via
Several Chinese sites which is cheap but would be dubious as too it's
Longevity :???:

Edit...I forgot, old man mountain racks can be adapted to fit but are still a
Bit spendy and there's a lovely one from Tumbleweed bikes that's in the
Surly price league....

I have no idea how they can all be so expensive. It's madness!

Macskive.....my thoughts exactly... :shock:
Techno mail, yes the only reasonable option I've seen however it's quite
Large, fine if you were delivering Hovis ( other brands are available)
I'd only be carrying my tent and a dry bag :lol:

Plenty of room to pick up a pizza for later or a crate of larger. Or both :-bd

Thanks Si.

The metro porteur rack looks like a reasonable option.

This is the most reasonable option I can find:
