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.

ConsBit fiddly to fit but it secure when done
ProsCompact, and well made
I wanted a small front rack for my long distance tours. A bit fiddly to fit but it is well made.
Has a weight limit but it is only intended for small items.
Questions & Answers (6)
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.
SJS Customer Service:
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.
SJS Customer Service:
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
SJS Customer Service:
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.
SJS Customer Service:
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

SJS Customer Service:
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.
SJS Customer Service:
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.
