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.
The rack looks great and, once mounted, is sturdy enough.
As others have shared there are a few things that make installation a pain.
The threads (welded nuts) on the underside that connect the fork crown attachment were misaligned and as such would not accept the bolts properly. I could only use one of the three. Not enough mounting hardware was included. I provided my own mounting bolts for the fork and had to create my own spacers for those mounting bolts.
I bought two of these racks and both had the same issues.
It is beautiful and was fairly easy to install. One of the bolts provided in the kit, however, didn't fit the welded nut on the rack. I had to go out and buy a bolt one size larger. After it was installed it has a slight kilter to the left, so my handlebars and tire line up straight but the rack is just a wee bit out of line. I can live with that. I wish I had thought it through a little more and noticed that the front of the basket under the rail is completely open which isn't very good for carrying slim items that could slide under it. That was totally an example of my oversight. I've only had it about a month so I can't attest to its durability.
