    Jandd extreme front racks can be mounted without Braze-ons. They offer clamps in various diameters for differing fork blades.

    Here's where you can get a good deal on one.

    I'm sure there are also others, and I wouldn't recommend clamping to carbon fork blades, but if properly installed the Jandd or similar clamp to blade racks would serve you well.

    None of them MUST have braze-ons.

    My old Blackburn Lowrider is mounted with rubber coated 5/16 stainless u-bolts and a plate around the fork blade.It has worked well for the last 30 years.

    The u-bolts are for the top mounts.If you don't have braze-ons on the dropout,you can use a p-clamp if need be.

    Thanks for the help so far.
    Will the Jandd extreme fit a 700x 32, tight fit ?

    The extreme clamps on the top of the balde, and usually at a fender eye on the bottom, but that can be replaced with another clamp. There's decent latitude for height, so it'll work on any 700c fork.

    Nitto has a decent Mini rack , and for the next level of stuff hauling wings to attach to it to make a wider Porteur type rack .

    Paul's Components makes a decent porteur rack of 1/2" aluminum, and machined parts ..
    I have one , Its OK, [20# loads reccomendation given] though using round stock for the struts it could be improved If the round struts didn't rotate in the socket .

    I'm thinking of loc-titing the 2 together red or so type , trying to keep the stronger bonds stuff out of the threaded portion is the trick , Doesn't need a overkill thread lock for the bolt, just bonding the rod in the socket [until the whole thing is heated up with a Heat ***].

    I have my rack on a 622 - 32 tired bike.. plenty of clearance.

    3rd mount is to the fork steerer tube, with 2 shims for 7/8", 1 for 1.0"and none for 9/8".
