Rack - Front or Rear - Nitto RBW51 Rack
Nitto RBW51 Rack - Front or Rear -
This new rack for the end of '18 replaces the old R-14 top rack. Very similar to the popular R14 except the RBW51 can also easily mount to the front or rear of your bike.
A clever and beautiful Nitto rack made just for us. It's perfect as a saddlebag support, the Sackville BagBoy, HappiSack or BaggaBond, a medium wald basket (with zip-ties), or any load you can fit on it.
It's a cinch to mount, secure and lovely. It doubles the usefulness of any bike you put it on.
As a saddle support for big bags or a rack for a trunk bag, it's unimprovable.
Nitto rates this to rack 13 lbs. Nitto is really conservative, but that's the number we're going with. With any rack, you have to snug the bolts tight. The nuts on this rack are special ones made for the car industry. They cannot vibrate loose, and in that way are even way more secure than nylock nuts. They can be loosened normally, but they won't loosen through vibration.
Top loads only. It's not for panniers that hang off the sides. For that, we have the Nitto Big Back racks.
Note: 13 lbs weight limit.
Not that it matters but this rack is 1.2 pounds.
