My wife and I have a Trek T-1000 tandem, and we are considering taking it on a week long bike tour this summer. I would like to mount a front low-rider rack, but finding one that is compatible is proving to be quite challenging.
The front fork has eyelets near the axle, but there are no mid-fork braze-ons, which seems to eliminate most front low-rider racks. There are also no V-brake bosses, which eliminates the Old Man Mountain mounting system. Finally, the front fork is more than an inch in diameter, which eliminates the Tubus mid-fork adapter clamps.
Are there any front low-rider racks which can mount on this bike, securely and without damaging the fork or the rack?
