Pletscher Rear Rack ("CLEM rack")

Sold Out

Product Details

We've sold Swiss-made Pletscher mousetrap-style racks for years, so when they approached us to make our own custom rack we whooped it up, and this is what we got:
  • Bigger longer platform
  • Silver finish
  • Tapped for adding optional taillight bracket (bracket sold separately)
  • Mini-pump peg (pump sold separately)
  • Tapped for adding pannier rails (rails sold separately)
  • Compatible with Pletscher's baby seats, baskets and other quick-release accessories.
  • Struts (included) are the same diameter and interchangeable with the Nitto struts and very adjustable for a level fit on many wheelsizes
Not as luscious as a NITTO, but Pletscher has made variants of this rack for almost 65 years, and we dig it and it's totally worthy of any of our rackable bikes. The key feature is the mousetrap, which lets you carry small loads—basketballs, newspapers, clothing, like that—on top of it.
It's a stupendous saddlebag support. Even without the optional rails, it holds most panniers no problem. The rails are good if you plan to use panniers often.

  • Weighs 1.85lbs with hardware
  • 100% recyclable aluminum
  • Made in Switzerland
  • Stainless hardware
  • rated to 25kg (55lb) loads
  • slightly glittery sparkle-jet silver finish

NOTE: It's aluminum, not steel, so you can break it if you spread it too much. This isn't a bad thing, it's just a characteristic of aluminum. If the struts are too far inboard, move them to the outside of the mounting lobe.
