ProsQuality , easy to fit .
The SJS front rack is the second one I've fitted to one of my bikes . The first one was Chinese , and cost 1/3 the price , I had to bend the two brake boss supports and make a bracket for the crown support , the quality was poor , The SJS fitted straight on and the quality was much better . The SJS was far better and worth every penny .
Sturdy affordable rack.

ProsStrong, inexpensive, easy to install, quality
I bought this after breaking two cheap racks purchased elsewhere. I looked at lots of options, but there are few affordable front racks that mount in this manner - especially in black. I am very pleased with the quality of this rack. The construction is immediately superior to my previous racks and is extremely sturdy. Highly recommended!

ConsFork crown to rack bracket too short
ProsNeat and compact. Seems well finished.
This is a very neat little rack. I was pleased that it fit onto the brake bosses without affecting the operation of my fork mounted B&M bottle dynamo.

I needed to add a couple of washers between brake bosses and the rack flanges to avoid the bracket fouling the brake action.

The one problem I had in fitting it was that the bracket for attaching the rack to the fork crown was much too short for me and I had to make a new, longer bracket from a piece of mild steel.
Fits Well & Great For Wicker Basket

ConsNone.
ProsWell made, good fit.
Arrived promptly from SJS. Easy to fit, but you do need a couple of additional washers to go between the rack feet & the brake bosses to stop them binding. Minor adjustment required for brakes afterwards but then good to go & rock solid since. Fitted to take an SKS wicker basket on a hybrid with 80mm suspension forks - attached with 4 x cable ties & looks neat. Basket sits much lower than the handlebar mounted basket it replaced. Lights can go back in the handlebar, rather than bouncing around on the lip of the basket - much better.

Conspaint marks easily
Prosprice, ease of fitting
Actually this is second time I bought this as first time it interfered with my crown fitting dyno light. After buying the Hebie rack adaptor I was able to fit this and dyno light on.

Fitting was very easy and it is sturdy. It perfectly compliments my saddlebag and can be used to strap sleeping bag/tent or whatever I can now cyle camp! Which I could only just do with my Nelson Longflap. It's cheap and very good and very useful

ConsNo braze on for a light
ProsCheap, well made, black, sturdy
Great rack for the money, you really can't go wrong with this for only £16. Pretty straightforward to fit and it feels solid and dependable.

Perfect for lugging locks around and balancing weight between the front and back of my bike.

There is no braze on for attaching a front light (as on some nitto racks) but for less than a third of the price, I'm not complaining.

By

I'm looking to use this with a Hebie ARC J82S SL Universal Rack Fitting Light Bracket so I can mount my front dynamo light and would like to know if it would fit
Hi
Thank you for your enquiry, the diameter of the rail on this rack is 8mm.
Kind Regards. 12/09/19
What are the two holes at the top in relation to?
By

I can't see any corresponding fitting - is this to fix to headtube?
No idea, sorry, we didn't design this product RT 140619
Will these fit on a 29er?
By
15 May 2019
I’m from the USA so please forgive me for not knowing mm measurements but will this fit a 29” tire mountain bike? My brake bosses are roughly 80mm center to center but the crown height looks to be about 150mm
Yes, fits between 70mm and 80mm canti bolt centres plus a little extra adjustment with bending if needed.
Will this fit onto a Raleigh parkway. 20 inch wheel size I think.

Hi there,

Unfortunately as we do not stock that particular bike we cannot say whether this will work or not as we have no way of testing it im afraid.

Thanks.

Is this designed to fit on my Sherpa? 560L I think...
By
31 Aug 2017
Thanks!
Hi,

Although you may need a different bolt and make some small adjustments you should be able to fit this onto a Sherpa without too many issues.

Thanks.
Would It Fit On The Rear As A Saddle Bag Support?
By
05 Jul 2017
Hi,

Unfortunately due to the positioning of the fittings it would not work on the rear of the bike.

Thanks.
What Is The Max Weight Limit Of The Rack? Is It Suitable For Handlebar Bags?
By
16 Feb 2017
Hi,

Unfortunately we don't have a manufacturer specified weight limit, but we assume that the weight limit due to the size and construction of the rack will be around 3-4kg. This would sit quite low compared to the handlebars so may not be suitable for use with handlebar bags.

Thanks.
Will Fitting The Rack Beneath Cantilevers Get In The Way Of The Spring Holes On The Bosses?
By
09 Jul 2016
Traditional cantilevers with springs that slot into holes on the bosses.
Hi,

You are correct, I was mistaken in my previous reply as i confused this product with a different one. The bolts that fit the brakes to the forks have to pass through this rack before then passing through the brakes and into the forks. This may well require longer bolts.

Thanks.
What Is The Distance Between Brake Studs And Fork Crown Mount?
By
09 Jun 2016
I would like to mount it on a 20 " (451mm) bicycle but I'm afraid the fork is too short.
Hi,

The stud mountings are 80mm apart and the crown mounting is 110mm above them.

Thanks.
Hi What Is The Max/Min Distance Between The Brake Boss Holes?
By
23 Dec 2015
I want to fit this to a set of forks with a boss to boss, centre to centre distance of 75mm, will it fit? You say 80mm is ok and the holes look like they might actually be short slots allowing a bit of wriggle room and I guess I could probably bend the rack a bit to fit but I just wanted to be sure before committing to buy, cheers, Samuel
Hi,

This would be right on the limit, but you should be able to use this rack with fork bosses that are 75mm apart.

Thanks.
Spacing Between Holes On Brake Mounting Tangs ?
By
16 Aug 2014
The cente to centre spacing between my brake bosses is 80 mm.
Can you confirm the mounting tangs on this carrier will fit ?
Thanks.
Hi,

Yes, the centre to centre spacing on this rack is 80mm, so it will fit your bike fine.

Thanks.
Does This Mount Ok On V Brakes?
By
27 May 2014
Hi,

Yes, this rack can be mounted to a bike with V-brakes.

Thanks.
Alloy Front Carrier, What Mounting Hardware Is Included?
By
23 Mar 2014
Does it come with mounting hardware for fixing to the brake bosses?
If it will not fit my Thorn Raven Tour please let me know.
Thanks,
Richard.
Hi,

If you bike is just a Raven Tour and not a Raven Sports Tour then it will fit fine. The carrier comes with everything that is pictured in the first picture, fixing bolts for the crown mounting but none for the brake boss mounting.

Thanks.
