Following last week’s coverage of the kolektif Bike Fair in Berlin, we’re giving away two Allygn Grill Rack bundles for Collective Reward #116, including a Fern Bikes T-shirt and a Gramm x Voile strap. Find details here…

Berlin-based Allygn Components is a relatively new brand from framebuilder Flo Haeussler of Fern Bicycles (@fern_bicycles), whose striking bikes effortlessly blend classic and modern touches. The new Allyn Grill Rack is among the first products he’s brought to market, and we’re excited to be giving away two of them for Collective Reward #116. Two randomly selected members of our Bikepacking Collective will receive a care package that includes an Allygn Grill Rack, a new Fern “Metal on Metal” T-shirt, and a Gramm Tourpacking strap by Voile—around a $250 total value for each winner.

Allygn Grill Rack

Available in small-batch quantities but packing in all the clever touches you’d expect to find on a custom rack, the Grill Rack has proved to be an indispensable part of my commuter bike’s setup, which routinely serves double duty as my bikepacking rig for overnight and multi-day trips around Germany. I find the Grill Rack to be an ideal size for supporting the oversized handlebar and basket bags in my regular rotation, and I also appreciate its hidden fender mount, stealthy dynamo light routing, and the fact that it was a breeze to install. Having used a wide variety of the readymade front racks on the market over the years, the Grill Rack is a clear standout in terms of thoughtfulness and utility, and it leaves little to be desired.
