  • Fits fork legs up to 24mm diameter - the M:Part Front Low Rider Rack fits most hybrid and touring bikes and some mountain bikes.

Low-rider front racks
The low-rider front rack concept was popularised by Jim Blackburn. His theory was that that you can carry a surprising amount up front without compromising the bike's stability if most of the weight is below the front hub.

Although they are less popular than rear racks, front racks have a lot to commend them.

  • Spreading the load between front and rear wheels makes the bike better balanced than carrying everything on the back.
  • It puts less weight on the back wheel (which is already supporting most of yours).
  • If you carry a childseat on the back, the only place left to carry stuff might be on a front rack.
