    Fron rack suggestions

    hey all-

    I'm looking to get a front Rack for my commuter. I'm thinking something flat without a cage around it. Something I could go out and pick up 5 boxes of pizza with (just to give you visual). Any suggestions?

    My fork is drilled for a brake, but it doesn't have any eyelets. My hubs are philwood, so it's gotta be compatible with them!

    Not exactly cheap but from what I've heard, it's strong as hell.

    OP here's some higher end and heavier duty stuff from reputable companies:

    Products ? CETMA Cargo

    VO Porteur Rack (you'll need a short nut and bolt if you're brakeless, otherwise you're golden)

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions-

    I ended up getting the Rhiel Industries TCB rack.

    I request a video of you doing a no-handed trackstand with five pizzas on the front of your bike.
