How much do you want to carry with this thing? Remember, don't carry a lot in the front other wise it will affect your steering.

I have used the Surly Chromoly and the Soma Porteur front racks. The Soma is wider on top. The Surly is a bit more adjustable if your bike has eyelets along the sides of your front fork.
The Surly is more tailored towards panniers and the Soma is better suited to be used as a traditional Porteur rack.
I actually do have the Soma for sale since I sold the Gazelle bike I had it mounted on and I have no other bike it will fit on. It is the black version of the rack. Let me know if you are interested. I am located in TX and can ship.
