Surly Nice Rack Cromoly
Surly Nice Racks are expedition-quality bicycle racks for extended touring, camping, etc. The Surly Rack is made from high quality tubular cromoly steel that is built to take abuse and carry a heavy load. Great for anything from commuting to cross-continental globe trekking, the Surly Nice Rack is so much more than "nice."
- Incredibly strong chromoly steel construction (most cheap racks are aluminum).
- Chromoly means that in the unlikely event of a failure, you can likely find someone to weld it back together
- Powder coated for corrosion resistance
- Includes stainless steel hardware
- In general, these racks dont fit bikes with disc brakes or suspension, with the exception of Surly disc brake compatible bikes (Ogre, Troll, Disc Trucker).
- Front racks mount to forks with mid-blade eyelets - about 165mm from the dropout. Most quality touring forks have these. Hardware is included to help them fit forks without eyelets.
- Rear racks are height-adjustable and has a wide platform to improve carry capacity
- Front rack weight: 3lbs 13 oz (with mounting hardware)
- Front rack load capacity: 70lbs
- Rear rack weight: 2 lbs 9 oz (with mounting hardware)
- Rear rack load capacity: 80lbs
Again, tested on some of the worst "roads" you would ever want to consider. Who cares if they are not super easy to install... you want something that is nuclear proof while in the middle of the mountains.

It goes with the Surly Front Rack I have on my Surly LHT. As with the front Rack it appears very stong and made to last!

I found that my metal rear fender hit rear rack and made some noisy sounds when I passed ramps on the road.The gap might be too small.I attached small rubber sheets on the fender to reduce this noise.
Otherwise, I have no problem with these Nice racks.It help me when I go shopping with my crosscheck bike.
PROS: Stiff, Adjustable
I would say it's like having a rear rack on your front wheel, but its actually better. I end up using my front rack more than my rear, because it is so much better.
When they make a rear rack like this front rack, then my bike may finally achieve nirvana.

To be honest had I a normal Touring/Mountain bicycle instead of a recumbent with 20 inch wheels I would have bought a Tubus cargo rack which is just as strong.Also it is much easy to fit with the added bonus of having a proper lamp bracket on the back.
