Nitto Mini Front Rack Review

Nitto Mini

A bit on the pricey side (97 bucks from Rivendell Bicycle Works) the Nitto Mini Front Rack is impressively well built and a perfect ultralight alternative to standard front racks. The Nitto Mini mounts with a threaded bolt through the hole in your bike’s fork crown. The bolt can also serve to hold the hanger hardware that comes with Berthoud fenders. The two support legs are clamped to the fork blades and seem as secure as any brazed-on attachment. The rack is a good match for the Ostrich handlebar bag and would also provide a place to bungee a tent or dry sack. Made of chromium-molybdenum (shiny steel), the welds are beautifully done if you’re into that kind of thing.
