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

      7th Month of Crossing South America

        Comments about Surly Rear Rack Cromoly:

        I'm on my seventh month of crossing South America and am currently in Bolivia. If there are roads on this planet WORSE than Bolivia, I would love to see them. Thus far, both the front and back racks have been indestructible while carrying front and back panniers and 2 additional auxiliary bags. Front rack has topped out at least 45lbs and rear at probably 60lbs (with food water camping gear misc....)

        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.

        Comments about Surly Rear Rack Cromoly:

        This is a lovely and strong looking pannier rack,although I haven't had the chance to test it out yet it looks as though it will last for years.I bought it as I have a bicycle that's difficult to fit full sized panniers on unless you have a very tall or adjustable rack which can very very hard to get.I previously had a Tortec Ultra light but wanted something stronger and easily repairable.The only things I dislike about this rack are the utterly useless instructions which need a magnifying glass to read,and the assembly requires a lot of patience as it's very fiddly to fit.

        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.

          Really solid. It was a tight fit on the stock fork of a Surly Big Dummy with 185mm avid bb7 calipers. Feels great. Hardware included is amazing.

            Comments about Surly Rear Rack Cromoly:

            The Surly rear Nice Rack is an excellent addition to my Salsa Fargo, which is my primary long distance trekking machine. The rack is a solid, quality piece of equipment capable of carrying heavy loads in standard panniers. It's each to install and went on without a hitch. The top of the rack leaves plenty of room for strapping on extra gear in addition to panniers on each side. It will be interesting to see how the cromoly stands up to corrosion. It's a little heavier of a rack, but a bombproof build. Highly recommend.

              I installed front and rear racks to my Surly Cross Check bike.It might be a little bit difficult to calibrate front rack without reading the instructions.
              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.

                Comments about Surly Rear Rack Cromoly:

                These racks are simply the best racks on the market from my experience. The front rack comes with a giant bag of hardware that allows you to fit it to most bikes (I only say most because there is an exception to everything). I am sure that anyone who can turn an allen wrench can make this work on their bike. Discs, racks and fenders with lots of weight, no problem.

                  I use this on my Surly LHT, my commuter bike. Instead of carrying my messenger bag on my back, I bungie it to the front rack. It does affect the handling of the bike, putting extra weight on the front fork. Overall, great product!
