    Pugsley Rack Options With No Need For Modifications

    I am looking for a front and rear rack for my Pugsley that doesn't require any modifications to mount, aside from the Surely Nice Racks? I've tried searching and it appears that most require some kind of modified brackets of some sort. I was hoping for something not so bulky looking as the Surely Nice Rack.

    Thanks

    Planet Bike Eco Rack and Axiom Journey both bolted up using the "inside" of the driveside eyelets. Both of these racks can be found under $30 too!

    the same model rack fits front or rear. can be swapped from bike to bike. They can be set up and swapped between a range of decks and pannier or drybag options. Products

    I believe that QBP distribute them in the US of A. (we do them in Australia)

    What racks are you using?

    I used Bontrager Back Rack I's on my Pugs and the front did require a slight modification but nothing too crazy. I just had to cut the vertical loop off of the "back" of the front rack. The mounts worked great and were a breeze to set up.

    Have you tried mounting the rear? Methinks the cable routing may be problematic.

    Gary Fisher rack

    Just mounted up an old GF rack that I had lying around. I used the inside of the drive-side eyelet and the outside of the non-drive-side eyelet. I used a small spacer (an M6 nut on an M5 bolt) on the left side as well. I also needed spacers on the seat stay eyelets because they were much farther apart than the rack braces - however the rack was centered between those eyelets which is a good sign! All of the bolts (except the drive side) are 25mm long, so they go through *all* of the threads in those wide eyelets. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

    The Surly rack works - I get a little hamstring interference at full extension but not enough to be bothersome (doesn't hit when pedaling), let me know and I'll send pics if desired.

    I have an Axiom Pheonix on my small, but don't really like the fit. I'm prolly just going to get a custom frame from A-Train cycles. Obviously more expensive, but I'll waste that amount of money trying to get a perfect fit.

    Either the Old Man Mountain Cold Springs or Sherpa rear racks will mount front or back on any Pugsley frame (including small) without modification if you get them with Pugsley mounting kit available at no extra charge from OMM or bikebagshop.com. They are light, strong and infinitely adjustable.
    That said, with minimal mount fabrication (front) or modification (back) I think the Cold Springs front rack mounts more cleanly and looks nicer. See OMM FRONT rack on Pugsley fork for a description of a simple front mount I (with 2 left hands) fabricated with a hacksaw, drill, and file. For the rear all you need is a hacksaw to shorten the provided Pugs mount to lower the front Cold Springs rack to a good position.
    If anyone wants dimensions for the front mount I fabricated let me know.

    Has anyone tried the Tubus LOCC? I have seen them installed on a Pugsley but cannot tell what clearance there is. I also read that an extension part is required to clear the calipers. I am interested in the LOCC for my Fatback so if anyone has any input on them I would be happy to hear it.

    PUGSLEY RACK OPTIONS (Again)

    I am looking for a cheap option for a front or rear rack $35 and under for my pugsley. I live in the USA so some of the options may not be sensible if I factor in shipping from other countries. Suggestions??

    That looks like the one that came on my Pugs... It's a Planet Bike Versarack Disc. You have to apply a little force to get the thing to mount up centered on the rack mounts, but no modifications needed.

    how big of a rack do you need/want?

    I put a Gamoh on my pugs with room to spare. you need to work with it to fit it right but the supports are super wide and easy to make right.

    it's big and can carry a ton of weight, like if you need to take a case of beer and some other things to a party or whatever. or groceries. or a wheelbarrow.
