Blackburn Outpost Front Rack

Blackburn Outpost Front Rack

Adventurers look here! The Blackburn Front Rear Rack is a versatile front rack that is ready to support you on your next tour. The Outpost is made from Easton Scandium and aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum tubing, resulting in a sturdy, long-wearing rack that can bear a heavy load but doesn't place an unnecessary weight burden on your bike when unloaded. Blackburn's fit system ensures that the Outpost can be adjusted to fit bikes of all standard wheel sizes (26", 27.5", 29"), even those with disc brakes. When attached, the removable top platform rack provides support for a handlebar bag or works simply as extra space to strap extra gear to. With the top platform removed the Outpost Front Rack functions much like a traditional low rider pannier rack. Bolt the Outpost onto your touring rig and get ready to explore everything from your neighborhood bike trail to lonely backroads far and wide.

Features:

  • Construction: Easton Scandium and aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum tubing
  • Blackburn fit system: Compatible with 26", 700c, or 29" wheels
  • Upper mount is easily adjustable and mounts to cantilever posts or mid-fork eyelets
  • Disc brake compatible, works with most brake or frame mounts
  • Removable top rack
  • Low and high pannier mounts
  • Works well with most suspension forks
  • Load capacity: 45lbs/20kg
  • Rack weight: 1lb 14oz (with all mounting hardware)

Poorly designed.
In designing this rack to be flexible in its mounting points blackburn has created a rack that mounts poorly to everything and has difficulty staying in position under heavy use or on rough roads. The adjustable arms that tighten with grub screws tend to flex and want to rotate around the tubing. The bottom width of the rack is unnecessarily wide, so lowrider panniers stick out far from the fork blades, making riding on narrow paths or in traffic an adventure; and ye t the top platform is quite narrow, so you can't put much of anything on top (at least not a bag without a bottom stiffener without it sagging). Finally, since the bottom of the lowrider portion of the rack is a rounded tube, a pannier hook tends to wander to one side and pop off under use. You can mount the panniers higher and use the cross beam by the adjustable mount, but then you lose the stability of a proper low-rider.

In short. Don't buy this rack unless nothing else will fit your bike.

It is quite pretty though.

Don't buy for cannondale
The cannondale t1 (2010) has eyelet way to close to dropout so you can't use this rack without the long skewer.

CONS: Fitting Caution
