VELO ORANGE - Flat Pack Rack

VELO ORANGE Flat Pack Front Rack

Regular price $329.95

The 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 to fit your ride

The platform is known as a “demi-porteur”. Its size is somewhere between a full Porteur and traditional Randonneur front rack. The main benefit of a demi-porteur style is better stabilization for large Randonneur Handlebar Bags as well as better support for baskets and large bikepacking bags, perfect for those longer bike rides you set your eyes on  

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. The versatility of this front rack is truly superb, designed with cycling adventurers in mind

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
