This is a stainless steel front rack that is perfect for a handlebar bag. The decaleur (bag mount receiver) is integrated into the rack backstop. The advantage to this system is: your bag-decaleur-rack combination is more solid, lighter, and less likely to rattle. Integration is the Holy Grail of Constucteur-style bikes, and VO feels that these racks are a big step in that direction.
All VO racks are made from polished tubular stainless steel, so they will never rust, flake, and can be re-polished to a mirror shine even after years of use. There are light mounts on the side of the platform. The platform is 20.5 cm long and 10.2 cm wide.
Most traditional style handlebar bags work perfectly with this rack (any bag around 20cm tall), but very tall bags may need a longer bag mount. If you plan on getting into offroad exploration, we suggest using a toe strap on the bottom of the bag to ensure it says put over the rough stuff.
We carry two versions of this rack; one for mounting on cantilever brake bosses and one to mount on brazed-on rack mounts. The braze-on version is NOT COMPATIBLE with mid-blade eyelets; it requires dedicated rando rack bosses or use of the included p-clamps.
NOTE: We still have a limited quantity of the older, less-adjustable version of this rack. You can find it here.
