Excellent

Put this on my commuter and have carried Ortleib's biggest panniers and a drybag strapped to the top. Feels very solid, looks pretty good for a rack. Lost 2 clip-on rear LED lights from the 'light mount' on the back before I got round to fitting a tube-clamp mount with extra padding.

Nice light rack with a decent amount of strength. Easy to mount on bike. Great service from Tredz as always.

Good value, light and sturdy

Once fitted, this is almost as good as my tubus racks. Lightweight and sturdy but I had to bend the aluminium rods to fit my CX bike, which was quite a challenge, but now fitted will be easy to re-fit. No problem with my disc brakes. There is only one hole in the rear reflector mount, so I had to drill some holes to fit my cateye LED lights.

Tortex Rack

Like this rack good solid item feels sturdy when fitted just wish it didn't sit quite so high over the wheel would be nice if it lost 100m in height.

Tourer

Very light rack with a very versatile fixing mechanism. Should fit any bike. Works well on my GIANT Defy 1. Just buy a fixing for the seat tube and away you go.

Great for light touring

A light yet sturdy rack. I use it for commuting and lightweight touring where its been more than capable. Easy to mount and I like how the panniers are held in close to the wheel.

Good quality rack

Really happy with this rack. Its light and strong and looks great on my 2014 whyte suffolk. The dark grey paint matches the frame perfectly which is a bonus. It sits slightly high as the rack mounts on my bike are a couple of cm above the axle but this means good heel clearance for panniers. The narrow top wont take a rack pack so panniers only. cant go wrong with this.

Good rack for roadstyle commuter bike

Narrower than a regular rack but enough room for 50mm mudguards. My panniers fit quite far to the back which keeps them out of the way of my heels on the road bike. On my bike it sits a bit high over the wheel since the eyelets are a few cm up from the dropouts and there is no vertical adjustment.

Bike Racks Guide

What is a bike rack?

A bike rack is a great way of carrying your luggage around on your bike, making them perfect for commuting, touring or family adventures. The rack fits securely to your bike, eliminating the need for a rucksack to burden your back. Racks are easily fitted and removed, so they don’t have to stay in place all the time.

Who needs a bike rack?

Anyone who carries luggage. Whether you’re cycling to work, sightseeing or having a few days away, bike racks are ideal for bearing the brunt of the load. A bike rack is also a great idea for those who suffer from back pain or that find rucksacks uncomfortable.

What are the choices?

There are two locations for bike racks, at the front and rear of your bike. Both can be used to carry luggage. Choose from strong, durable material that is as light as possible. You’ll also need to check that the rack will fit to your bike without getting in the way of any of the components. 

What should I buy with it?

The choice of accompanying baggage is endless. Pick from a small, compact bag for occasional jaunts, double panniers for a weekend away or multi-compartment bag to keep yourself organised.

Anything else?

Check the load capacity of your rack – you don’t want to set off and leave a trail of spilt luggage in your wake. Or worse, damage your bike because you’ve packed everything AND the kitchen sink.

See our Luggage guide for more.
