Surly Cromoly Front Rack 2.0

The Surly Cromoly Front Rack 2.0 is an expedition-quality bicycle rack for extended touring, camping, commuting, and more. The Surly Rack is made from high quality tubular cromoly steel that is built to take abuse and carry a heavy load. For version 2.0, Surly redisgned the lower plates, adding strength to the design and increasing clearance for disc calipers. Great for anything from commuting to cross-continental globe trekking, the Surly Front Rack 2.0 is reliable workhorse.

  • Heavy-duty tubular cromoly steel rack
  • Chromoly construction 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 and aluminum hardware 
  • Redesigned lower plates add strength and increase clearance for disc calipers
  • Front racks mount to forks with mid-blade eyelets - about 165mm from the dropout. Most quality touring forks have these. Hardware is included to retrofit to non-touring specific forks
  • 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

Comments about Surly Cromoly Front Rack 2.0:

The rack securely holds my Arkel gt-18 panniers and allows quick and easy access to the contents.

The rack performs flawlessly on the paved road and works just as well on fireroads and single track.

I do wish the rack had a horizontal braze on so I could mount my dynamo powered headlamp.

Otherwise the rack is near perfect and will serve its owner for many years to come.

        this is the only rack in the market that does what it does so well. There are some similar velo orange racks but they cost around $250. This rack mounts front panniers high or low, as well as a top-mount porteur style bag. You could add a wider platform to the top to carry a lot of different items. It is super strong and easy to install

        Comments about Surly Cromoly Front Rack 2.0:

        This is a well made rack designed to work with a variety of wheel and bicycle sizes. Assembly and mounting is straightforward. It's steel, it's sturdy, it allows panniers to be mounted high or low, and it has enough nuts and bolts to inspire confidence. If your fork has mid-blade eyelets, you probably won't find anything to complain about.

        However, my fork doesn't have those eyelets. Surly used to include the hardware (hose clamps and a stamped piece of metal with bolt holes) necessary to make it work, but in this version of the rack they decided not to. This leaves you to come up with your own solution (p-clips) or buy a separate $9 adapter kit. If it weren't for Surly cheaping out on hardware this would be a 5 star product.
