If versatility, durability and repairability are more important than weight, this is your front rack. Two levels for hanging panniers plus a platform. Carry up to 70 pounds. Fits 26″ to 29″ wheels.



Overview

Commuters and bike tourists for whom versatility, durability and repairability are more important than weight, this is your front rack.

The Surly Front Rack has two levels for hanging panniers. Most people will want to use the lower tubing, but you’ll appreciate the option to adapt to road and trail conditions. And don’t be shy about using the platform. This rack can carry up to 70 pounds.

Adjusts to fit from 26″ to 29″ wheel wheel with or without fenders, including all Surly forks except the Pugsley fork and Moonlander forks (due to the offset of the Pugsley fork driveside blade and the width of the Moonlander fork).

The main body of is made of tubular CroMoly steel. In the rare instance that this rack breaks, you should be able to find, even in the most remote regions of planet Earth, somebody to TIG, MIG, stickweld, braze or solder this rack back together. An aluminum rack won’t afford you the same luxury.

The stock rack and hardware is designed to fit front racks mount to forks with mid-blade eyelets – about 165mm from the dropout. Most quality touring forks have these. Additional hardware maybe needed to accommodate other forks.

For more information, refer to the Surly Front Rack Installation Instructions.

Surly front rack

I have not yet used the rack on a trip- but this is one solid rack. It mounted up with ease on my Straggler 700c frame.

Surly Front Racks - AWESOME SAUCE!

I bought the Surly front racks for my 2017 Novara Randonee (REI brand) touring bike. They fit perfectly, although the installation process took me longer than it should have. The directions are minimal and poorly drawn for someone who's new to the procedure. I ended up scrolling through a few different online videos to get a better idea of the step-by-step process and voila, a few hours later they were secure & ready to use. If you've never installed a front rack before, don't be intimidated. If I can do it, you can do it too. These Surly racks are worth every bit of frustration I may have had with the instructions now that they are securely in place. They're already getting quite a workout carrying my two front panniers and a bag on the flat top rack as well. Highly recommend the Surly front rack if you're looking for something very durable and sturdy, and that will last a good long time as well.
