Azor/Steco Pickup frame mounting front rack

Azor/Steco Pickup frame mounting front rack

Price: €84.70
Availability: In Stock
Model: Frame mounting front rack
Manufacturer: Azor
Average Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars!

This rack connects to the frame of the bicycle so can carry a higher weight without the handling of the bike being affected. For that reason, it more closely resembles traditional butcher's bikes than a handlebar mounted rack.

The drawback with this design is that the handlebars don't rotate with the rack, so the basket (or other load) on the rack must not be high enough to conflict with the handlebars or cables.

The load area of this rack is 40 cm wide x 27 cm front to back. The height of goods or a basket that can be carried will depend on how it fits on your bike. Please consider fitting a taller handlebar stem if you wish to carry a taller load (we also have tall handlebar stems).

As delivered, the fixing requires a downtube frame diameter of 31.8 mm ( 1 1/2" ). A spacer is also provided for tubes of down to 29 mm ( 1 1/4" ). This should work with most traditional design bicycles including Dutch bikes and English "3 speed" / roadster bicycles. Fitting to an oval tube or different diameter will require some DIY - at the very least a different pair of clamps from those supplied. It may not be possible at all.

This rack as supplied can easily be removed from the frame, but a hole is provided for either a padlock or a bolt to secure it permanently.

It may be possible to fit this rack to some bicycles with front suspension, though I wouldn't recommend a bike with suspension for carrying heavy loads.

Apart from a taller stem, recommended accessories with this rack are a steering damper and a double kick stand.

One mounting kit, for one bicycle, is included in the price of the rack. A spare mounting kit for a second bike is also available separately.

As with many things, cheaper lower quality copies of these racks exist. Ours are from the original manufacturer made in the Netherlands and they will last many years of heavy use.
