    Soma Mini Alloy Front Rack

    I just bought a Soma Mini Alloy Front Rack and I thought I'd post a few details. At $29.99 it's a bargain, it's sturdy and perfect if you're looking for a front rack with a smaller platform. I bought it so I can carry my camera bag more easily, it's a hassle to have to get off the bike and remove the camera from the back rack. Now I can stay on the bike and take photos much more easily.

    I wrote a more extensive review on my blog, but the most important details are it does the job and I'm glad I bought it!

    I like it.

    Do you mind sharing where you got it?

    I bought it from the online Soma Store. I'm not sure who else might carry them.

    Calhoun Cycle has it as well. I went to order it from Soma but their $39.99 minimum order policy, minimum $9.00 shipping fee and the extra $1.50 per box handling fee prompted me to say "WTF?!!" and look elsewhere. Soma has good stuff but their policies are rediculous. Its almost like they really don't want you to order from them. Calhoun Cycle had it for a couple of dollars less, didn't force me to buy stuff I don't need and charged only $7 to ship it.

    Please pardon me for reviving an old thread. But what is the weight of the Soma mini front rack Mr_Christopher? What material is it made of? Thanks in advance.

    Its another Black Burn reproduction imported from Asia. , So Expect its solid aluminum Rod the other was ..



    Its IMO not a Mini rack , but just a front rack .. if it only came down as far as the tips of the cantilever brake Bosses, ..

    that gets the 'Mini' Label ..

    Its a front rack why obsess over what things weigh ? things not installed weigh nothing.
