Hi fellow bikers. I'm still working on a front rack for my Tricross and discovered that the original Blackburn lowrider rack that came with some used panniers i bought doesn't fit--the carbon fork sticks out too much for the tubing that makes the approach from above to attach to the eyelet on the fork.
I've read that the Tubus Duo rack works with this bike but that's kind of out of my hoped price range and (don't hate me) i would prefer a corrosion-proof aluminum rack. The overly burly Jandd low front rack also is said to fit but it's heavier and "more" than i want. It looks like the Old Man Mountain AC Lowrider might work because the eyelet support approach is just from below, but i found this rack by Hebie (German company, apparently) and like its lighter, simple elegance. The problem is it's hard to see how the mounting works.
Has anyone used this rack before? Is Hebie a good option for racks?
If i could find a nice Tubus Duo or Tara clone in aluminum i'd go for that. It's hard to believe nothing like that exists--anyone have a link?
