Surly 8-Pack Rack

(1 customer review)


Most of you don’t need the cargo capacity to land a helicopter on your rack. Sometimes, all you want to do is grab a sixer, from the beer store on the way home, or pick up a nice bouquet of flowers.  For whatever the situation dictates, we offer the 8-Pack Rack. Made from the same tubular cromoly steel as our front and rear touring racks, the 8-Pack Rack is a solid pedestal upon which you may rest a handlebar bag, grocery bag, satchel… or whatever you use to carry your bowling ball around. The 8-Pack Rack attaches to most forks with mid-blade and crown eyelets. It uses stainless steel hardware and has the characteristic durability, versatility, and repairability all Surly products are known for. The 8-Pack Rack has lots of barrel braze-ons, so you can customize your cargo tie-downs…or just bolt on as many lights as you can possibly find.

    As is typical of Surly, it’s heavy for what it is (650g or so, similar to a Tubus rear rack) and expensive. Also typical I believe is that it is solid, functional, durable and repairable in the unlikely event that I manage to break it. Because I have One Bike to Rule Them All, l wanted something versatile- I can strap a large daypack on this and ride to a bushwalk, for example. Or a drybag for my camping gear, without playing Twister with hoses and cables per a handlebar harness (which seems more designed for pretty hipster pics rather than user friendliness). It is a large enough platform that a bulky bag can still be easily stabilised, so I don’t feel the need for the extra area and weight of the 24 Pack. However, courtesy of the eyelets, you could easily add and remove a larger tray or basket with ease.

    I chose this over a standard rack due to the large deck for top loading. Panniers get trashed when XC touring aka bikepacking, so I use this in combo with some Blackburn cargo cages mounted towards the rear of the fork legs, which seems to counteract the low speed wheel flop caused by a load in front of the steering axis.

    I anticipate enjoying the quality and simplicity long after I’ve forgotten the price. Happy cycling everyone.
