Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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)

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