  Nitto Mark's Rack M1 - 20108


Made in: Japan

Availability: back in stock
product code: R1

Our own Mark Abele came up with this design, and Nitto executed it perfectly.
ALWAYS use this rack with a tether btw the tall tongue-loop and the handlebar. It's a strong little rack, but people do dumb things, and the tether is a safety measure. Make The Tether out of cord or any adjustable strap.

We wanted a rack that could be used on the front of a bike with sidepull brakes, because sometimes sidepull users need to carry some stuff, too. It's our smallest rack, and weighs about 12oz, and is rated to about 6 pounds. There are lots of ways to use it as a saddlebag support in back, as a platform for a basket (zip-tie the basket on), or just strap a stuff-sack full of gear onto it. We use it all these ways, all the time.

Comes with the fork clamps that work on traditional road forks that are roughly 28mm x 20mm--like on all of our bikes and 99 percent of all steel roadish forks; and two 14cm rods - for mounting on rear seatstay bosses; and two 26cm rods - designed to work on all Rivendell forks with the mid-fork rack mounts; may or may not reach other fork lowrider braze-ons. Includes diving boards for front and rear.

If the 26cm rods are not long enough to reach your particular lowrider braze-ons and you don't want to use the fork clamps, then get the 42cm Nitto rack rods and cut em to size.
