Minoura Front Bike Racks for Touring
I kept looking at Old Man Mountain products but I had a goal of keeping the build project as reasonably priced as possible without compromising on quality. For this reason I couldn't justify spending $150 on a front rack, or more after shipping and mounting brackets.
After a few months of searching, looking, perusing and most all forms of asking "where is the rack I'm looking for?" I began to become a bit discouraged. Knowing the proper rack exists to meet the following criteria:
- Mount to canti bosses on fork
- Disc brake compatible
- Fits 26" wheels
- Top plate for an aerodynamic camera bag instead of a wind block handlebar bag.
- Steel construction
Girls here keep asking "what do you want for your birthday or Christmas?" I just didn't have an answer, couldn't think of anything, really and thought "oh let's get some beer and pizza and watch a movie". Yep, that's just what it feels like to have found this front rack, everybody's happy. Yep, I feel we are building a pretty nice "all rounder".
However, the price, apparent quality and steel construction of the Minoura FRP-3000 is a bit pricey. It's worth the investment if you're in the market for a quality Front Pannier Rack for Bicycle Touring.
