Velo Orange Porteur Front Rack Polished Stainless Steel

Velo Orange Porteur Front Rack Polished Stainless Steel

$350.00

The VO Porteur Rack is a traditional-style rack as used on the famed Parisian newspaper delivery bikes. Those Parisian delivery bikes were reputed to carry as much as 110lbs. of newspapers on similar racks (of course, the bikes had strengthened frames and forks, not just racks). 

Our Porteur Rack is made from strong stainless steel tubing and polished to a lovely shine. It won’t rust like painted steel racks or fatigue and crack like aluminum racks. The quality is actually superior to that of many custom racks. In short, this is a real load-carrying rack, not an aluminum “style-rack”. Yet total weight with rail, nuts, bolts, etc. is only 1.079kg. 

The platform is about 36cm x 29cm. A removable rail attachment is included and very handy for smaller packages. 

The tangs are pre-drilled to fit 700c, 27″, 26″, and 650b bikes. There are four bosses for a light attachment. There is a boss for securing your fender to the rack — no rattling! Please also note the elegant pannier/tie-down loops above the mounting tangs.

You can attach them using P-clamps to the top of your fork.
