Surly front rack 2.0
Fantastic at carrying things lots can be bungeed on and it has carried more than recommended with no trouble. I've been very excited to have this rack.
Nothing thus far.
Best front rack
Well built, very functional.
Best front rack I could find
Surly CroMoly Front Rack
The rack is as solid as any rack I have ever had in my hands, which has been many. The install was very simple (I put it on a 2011 Trek 7500 Hybrid). Once on, the rack was firm, and incredibly stable under load.
I have used the rack loaded with 30 to 40 lb. several times and lighter weight many more. I have had no issues or problems thus far.
I am very pleased with where the rack sits after mounting and thus where and how the Panniers go (to the best of my knowledge there are two primary choices, one higher than the other).
Overall I'm as happy as I could be with this product.
None that I can think of at the present time.
I have another bike I would love to have a rack like this for, a Trek 4500. There seems to be nothing offered similar to this for bikes with front shocks. So when looking to purchase, make sure your forks are okay... the rack fits most all other bikes, I believe.
Sturdy, bulletproof, and cool as hell.
None, unless you're a weight weeny
This is a beast of a rack. I've hauled a woman back from a bar on it.
Another burly Surly
Versatile and built like a tank, strapped my cj5 to it (just kidding). Very easy to install.
I would like to see some sort of bracketry made to install a hadlebar mounted headlight. Using a handlebar bag I am unable to utilize my Niterider 1400. I ended up rigging a mount on top of a small plastic box mounted onto the front rack.
Very serious rack
Could be way more than you need
I really wanted a rack that would integrate well with my fork mounts (on a Surly LHT).
I also want to have a front rack with a top so I can put light stuff there, like sleeping bag, etc.
Those two items combined led me to this rack, but in reality it's way more than I need on a day to day basis and while people always say the rack is heavy, it's the burly mounting hardware that's heavy, which is a good thing for epic tours through inner mongolia, but probably not essential on the shorter tours I'll use it for.
It's a great rack, it's just not really a great rack for me, but hey that's what happens when you impulsively buy gear.
Very versatile and heavy duty rack
Lots of room for fit adjustment to fork. Heavy duty. Will carry a wide range of pannier sizes. Very well engineered and thought out to fit a large range with optional attachment features.
None so far
I have this on an All City Space Horse Touring bike, 700c wheels, rim brakes, and a broad fork rake with drop outs and eyelets, had no problem fitting. The top rack works well for keeping cables out of the way without crimping, and can hold a small front bag to keep the bars free. Detaches very quickly when I'm in commuter mode. Can't tell you about clearance for disc brakes. Quality welds and construction. This would be my first go to rack if unsure about fit.
