I'd like to find some lowrider racks for my '88 Trek 520 so I can finally get into some bike camping and more extensive bike errands, but there's a little problem...
I'm quite vain. My rear rack is a Nitto Mt. Campee, front rack a Nitto M12. I'd like lowriders with some kind of decent finish so I don't have to take them off all the time.
Does this even exist?

These guys in Santa Cruz, CA are also making neat-looking front racks. Check out their Big Front Rack...
If you're looking for stainless steel, check out the Tubus Nova (http://www.thetouringstore.com/TUBUS/Nova/NOVA%20PAGE.htm). It is a minimal and elegant design.

I was worried that the Campee or Big Rack were my only options.
Looks like I'll have to sell my M12 to make room for one of them. Nitto really should make stand-alone lowriders.

there is a Japan-French bike rack design communication ,
the low rear, low front load set up , is shared by both..

The Tubus Nova is better than the Tara for hook and elastic style mounts but if you have modern Ortleib style hooks, the Tara is better, more minimalist and elegant.

I have an axiom-branded version of these daija racks (http://store.velo-orange.com/index.php/dajia-front-lowrider-rack-stainless.html) and they don't look too bad, especially when covered completely by the panniers. It wouldn't too much work to polish them if they aren't shiny enough.
