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.
The rack is sturdy and pretty. My only real issue was fit. It wasn’t perfect and took me more time than I anticipated to install. The bolt welds we’re misaligned, so I had to break them off and secure them differently. I was also missing a few screws and had to run to the hardware store. The wood planks are a bit flimsy. I had to take two off for the install (see breaking welds). When I put them back on I almost pushed the screws through them.
Still, the rack is pretty, sturdy and a wonderful addition to the bike.
Overall, it's good value for a sturdy rack; you're gonna beat it up with hauling stuff anyway.
My only gripe is that the wooden planks are flimsy, like balsa wood, and the ones on my rack were not stained on all sides. It looks cheap up close. But again, I'm hauling stuff so no one will really see it or care.
Otherwise, it was easy to install, and it lends itself well to upgrades. It's easy to switch out the planks for other materials, and the hardware is pretty solid, too, as the nuts and bolts don't strip with wear.
Used it on a different brand bike (Public Bikes), one of the screws broke will fitting it into the front wheel - which really sucked. But found a decent replacement. Looks so good on the bike though, worth the pain of installing.
I’m really impressed with the quality of the rack and with the service provided by Brooklyn Bicycle! I don’t pretend to be a bike mechanic, so as recommended, I had the rack professionally installed for only $25. It’s a great addition to my bike! I highly recommend it!
Very satisfied, nice addition to the bike. Would be nice if it was deeper or had a separate basket insert for easy unload
I love the rack. It looks great on my bike, and is great for carrying extra things. However the finish on the wood is not very weather resistant. After only a couple of rides in rain and snow, the finish is starting to flake off.
