Front Porteur Rack

I was a little disappointed in the quality of this rack. It is much cheaper than other front racks so I guess you get what you pay for. The finishing is very rough, there are sharp edges and even some early signs of rust. I probably would spend more next time and get a better rack.

Exactly as well made as it needs to be.

Great little rack. Very bare bones and clean. Bolts on easily. *******in all the right places. Functional as fu*%

Porteur Rack

Hi all, I bought this rack for my 1981 Univega gran turismo for one main purpose. A while back before I purchased the rack, I purchased a dog carrier bag that was to be self supporting, (22 lbs). I did not like the bottom support as it is poorly designed.
To overcome this, I set out looking for a rack that would fit the criteria. It had to be able to support the weight, sit at the correct height, and have the correct dimensions. Luckily, I found the State Bicycle website and this porteur rack. It was the perfect match. Perfect fit, strength and style.
I had to bend the bracket that holds the rack to the forks ever so slightly to get that perfect fit. Really quite simple. The only other issue was that I had to replace the two metric screws (included), that secure the rack to the fork eyelets with larger metric screws that fit my particular fork. This was a non issue for me as two screws cost just pennies.
I have put several miles on my bicycle with my dog since adding this rack and am quite happy. I even rode to my brother's house for Thanksgiving carrying cranberry relish and apple pie on my new rack with ease. This is a generous size rack able to carry various size loads.
The instructions included are very thorough and easy to follow making this a very simple installation. I couldn't be happier with my purchase from State Bicycle and very fast shipping.
It was at my door before I knew it.
Thank you State Bicycle.

Great Rack for the Price

SAME THING as the 160$ Velo Orange Rack, but for 40$. Strong, comes with mounting material and does the job well. fits my 27inch-wheeled peugot with drop bars well.

Great product!

The item was received on time and fits perfect on my great. The instructions we're a bit confusing (I didn't end up using them, it was very easy to assemble) and the rack looked like it was gift wrapped by my 2 year old, but the product itself is stellar.

So far so good

Installed a couple days ago on my Kona Rove ST with fenders. The metal extender part that attaches the rack to the head tube was tricky to install on first attempt -- it pushed down on my fender and inhibited tire movement! Oops. Started over & fixed that. So far so good. Wish I knew how much weight this rack is weighted for, but guess we'll see! Good price on a pretty rack.

Porteur front rack

I was shopping for a front porteur style rack for my "around town" bike and the options were pretty expensive. Then I found the State Bicycle Co Porteur Rack at an very good price. It mounted easily and it's very sturdy, of steel construction. Rough edges someone said; haven't seen them yet. The rack does its job perfectly; highly recommended!

I use it to support a basket in pic.

Front Porteur Rack

Awesome rack, well built and solid. I ride a Hunter, bought it used so unsure if the fork that is on it came with the original bike or not. Also, I don't know how old the frame is or if newer models have come out since my bikes birth, I am bummed that my bike didn't have the fork or drop out mounts to accomodate any rack offered. Either way it took some Macgyvering but I made it work so far!

Got it on my bike, finally, it took some time and energy.

It is very universal, please have parts ready. Not one screw was used from the supplier, had to modify everything to fit. Then, after frustration, now it's perfect for what I need it for.
