The front Rack is height adjustable and provides either a low or high pannier mounting position, which can be handy depending on terrain. When the ground gets rough, keep your gear high and dry. When the path is smooth and easy, you can load things low and keep everything balanced and stable, with the platform above the wheel providing yet more space for more stuff.
It’s worth mentioning we’ve redesigned the front Rack hardware to be simpler to attach and more compatible with things like disc calipers and fenders. We’ve also made attachment plates specifically for our Uni-Crown forks for yet more fork compatibility. This simpler design has fewer moving parts and costs less to manufacture, ergo costs less for you to purchase.
Our front rack WILL work with disc brakes on our Troll, Ogre, and Disc Trucker frames. It may take a bit of work to get clearance around the front caliper since the many different calipers out there are many different shapes. Our new attachment plates will limit any DIY ingenuity you might need, but if you need to throw a washer or three behind the lower left bolt where the plate attaches to the fork dropout, that’s not a big deal.
