    Front Rack

    My girl is looking to get a good solid front rack for her Trek 520. Ordering to within Europe is essential. The trek has mounting points half way up the forks.

    She likes the Lowrider style that doesnt have the loop that runs over the wheel ( Girls being very fashionable and all that, she wants her bike to look hot as possible, scores 10/10 on the vain thread ).

    She was looking at the Duo i have on my bike, made by Tubus, the only problem being this rack uses mid point mounting on the inside and outside of the fork, which the Trek doesnt have. Can she still use this rack without screwing the inside fork mount on ???

    Has anyone used axiom racks before, they do similar designs and she was interested in them too ??

    Thanks,
    me on behalf of my other half.

    I think the loop on the Tara is, in a way, elegant.
