The Velo Orange Flat Pack Rack is a mini porteur rack designed for the front of the bike. We really like this rack because of it’s easy to use, hyper adjustable, and high quality hardware, as well as it’s clean aesthetic and design. This rack comes with 4 stays (support struts,) two of which are very long and will reach the dropout eyelets of bikes that do not come with mid-blade eyelets, which is a very handy feature. This rack comes in black and silver as well as sports an optional integrated decaleur. If you’re not familiar, a decaleur is a specific type of rack stabilizing hardware that is used most often with traditional randonneuring bags like the Peregrine and Merlin from Swift Industries. Another added bonus to this rack is that it packs up completely flat for easy travel in your bike box and for more affordable shipping!

Installation requires a fork crown that is drilled all the way through. Because of the thickness of the Foot, the rack may not work with sidepull and centerpull rim brakes.
