Potentially a good option for a basketpacking setup, the new Pelago Commuter Front Rack Aluminium is a lighter version of their stainless steel Commuter Front Rack. It’s offered in three different sizes that range in weight from 650g (23oz) to 820g (29oz) and includes a versatile attachment kit that allows it to fit to most bicycles with 26″ or 28″ wheels. The new Commuter Front Rack Aluminium is available in black or polished silver and the small, medium, and large racks are priced at €69, €79, and €89, respectively. Note that there are mounts for a pannier just below the platform.
