Our stylish polished stainless steel porteur rack is a heavy duty option for carrying groceries, a change of clothes, or whatever you need for everyday adventures. It’s height adjustable and will fit almost any commuter, road, or mountain bike.
*Please note each rack is unique as they are handcrafted and made of natural materials. Variances will occur.
I ride my bike for groceries, shopping, takeout, and pretty much everything else, and this rack has been good for all of it. Compared to the rear racks that lots of my friends have, having a front basket style is way more convenient since I can just thrown bags or takeout containers on easily. I really wanted a rack like this instead of a cheaper basket for carrying heavy things like packs of beer, and it definitely does that job well. I weaved an old belt through the wood slats that I use to quickly cinch down any loads, which has worked great. I had to use p-clamps to install it to my fork, but it seems like a strong fit. The next closest rack that I could find was more than twice the price of this one, so I'd say that this rack is pretty great.
At first found it more decorative than not. Now I use it more. You should include a bunggy cord with

Turned my around town bike into a grocery getter. The size of the rack is great, and I’ll typically load my u-lock, a book, and have ample room to pick up some food togo and hit the park.
The wood is a bit on thin side, but surprisingly strong and sturdy. Couldn’t find a cooler looking rack and happy with purchase.
When the rack shipped, initially the one piece of the hardware kit was not included. I reached out to the staff and they were quick to respond and send a complete kit and included a cool tote. I really appreciate the service and care.
This rack looks great on my Brooklyn Driggs. I had it installed at a local bike shop, which was quick and easy
It arrived bent, but Brooklyn Bicycle was easy to communicate with and quick to send a replacement.
I bought this to build up a new commuter bike after my old one was stolen. Original bike had a very similar Velo Orange porteur rack.
This rack is very much like the Velo Orange in its design. The level of finish isn’t as nice, but that’s to be expected for a rack that’s $100 less. It seems very sturdy and well made otherwise.
The wooden slats and rail are cute, but they limit the utility of this type of rack. I removed them and will be using a Wald basket for daily commuting and the bare rack for carrying large cargo.
The attachment points for the wooden bits are handy for attaching a basket or box, and the rail attachment points will be useful for attaching a headlight.
The rack was very easy to install and I didn’t need to do any cutting or drilling.
I deduced a star because it has one significant flaw, and I almost returned it because of this:
The legs of the rack are designed such that the rack sits MUCH farther forward that it should. For best handling, the load should be as close to the steering axis as possible.
If you look at the rear legs of the rack, they attach right at the rear of the platform. Other racks have them a few inches forward so that the rear of the rack is closer to the head tube.
To compensate for this, I had to mount the rack to the rear eyelets on my fork which brought it back about an inch. Normally the rear eyelets would be for a fender and the front would be for the rack. I can still attach fender stays to the extra mounting holes at the bottom of the rack. I also angled the rack slightly back toward the head tube as opposed to completely level. With these modifications, I think it’s going to work for me.
I should note that my bike is NOT a Brooklyn. The design may be just right for a Brooklyn bike.
