It's an Origin8 Classique HD. It mounts on the axle and brake-bolt. It says 'max load 55 lbs' but I've put 80 on it with no physical problems... just really hard to turn.

First time riding with a front rack (Origin8 Classique Cargo), and it wasn't a bad ride at all. However, getting used to the new handling along with the temp and winds, gave me quite the workout.

u/RecycledAir · 3 pointsr/bikepacking

Check out the Origin8 Front Cargo Rack, it's much more solidly build and has double the rated weight capacity.

I used mine fully loaded up for a 2 week offroad bikepacking trip which included a good bit of rugged singletrack and it held up great, and that was after using it for two years to haul myself and all my stuff around the city on my commuter.

It doesn't work with thru axels but will work okay on fender mounts if you use washers.

I have a feeling it's going to be an origin8 classique front rack, but it comes tomorrow.

Other than that, my Cygolight Dash 350/Micro Shot head and tail light combo.

u/mybeararms · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

I have this Origin-8 rack on the front of my Surly Ogre, and it has been amazing. It's just about the same thing for around $55 instead of $140, and it is super sturdy and light.

u/AmorphouslyAbsurd · 2 pointsr/bicycling

It's actually an origin 8 classique hd. I purchased it because it was just like the cetma half rack but way less expensive.

u/CovfefeYourself · 2 pointsr/bikewrench

Get a front rack instead. It makes your fixie feel like a Cadillac. Rear racks (imo) make bikes feel sluggish and spongy.

I have this one, but I don't know why it's so expensive now

u/zachfoxers · 2 pointsr/FixedGearBicycle

Pretty lucky to have gotten the bag that’s for sure! Rack is from Origin 8

u/Shudder · 2 pointsr/bikemessengers ?
Modular in the sense that you can lash a basket or box to it/hook things onto it.

u/SirSmalls · 2 pointsr/FixedGearBicycle

It's an Origin8 and then he put a basket on it.

u/traingoboom · 2 pointsr/bicycling is this the rack?

Side note: Anyone have any luck painting a rack?
Trying to get it to match my silver/grey back rack

u/Meowface_McGee · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

My unpopular opinion, especially if this is your only bike, is to go fixed. The bike is cheaper/tougher for the money, and less maintenance means better reliability. And for you the rider, it teaches/reinforces proper pedal stroke and ability to hold higher cadence, which translates to your ability to do 50+ mile rides after just a month or so of riding. Something like a Kilo TT Pro with a porter rack is a helluva city beater. I threw some flat bars on mine and its comfy as hell. And with the front rack you can bungee a regular waterproof backpack or whatever and don't have to buy actual panniers. Anyways, just my 2¢

u/CrispierByTheSecond · 1 pointr/FixedGearBicycle

Have any of you used the origin 8 classique rack? Is it any good? If I don't have eyelets should I be fine? Should I spend way more and just get a soma or even a BLB rack?

u/Crankset · 1 pointr/bicycletouring

Yeah for just a platform rack, you could even look at the Origin8 CargoHD. I have one on my around towner and I love it.

u/-YK · 1 pointr/FixedGearBicycle

I have one of the Origin 8 cargo racks. I don't love it, but it gets the job done and it was cheap.

u/kopsis · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

I've found a front porteur rack (like is a much more convenient solution for hauling a messenger bag or backpack. Depending on the bike, a Wald basket on the front is an even more convenient solution.

Rear racks are great for long-distance touring with a good set of panniers, but using them with anything else (including makeshift panniers) is just not that convenient. Stuff on top of the rack can make mounting/dismounting awkward. Stuff on the side needs to be free of straps and dangly bits that could get caught (or very carefully secured). Heel clearance with makeshift panniers is another concern. Last, but not least, panniers pick up a lot of road grime. Even if it's easy to take your bag off the side of the rack and throw it over your shoulder at the destination, it may be dirty enough you don't want to.

u/mighty_boogs · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

It's an Origin 8 rack. It's alloy, so it's pretty light for the size of the platform. It's supposed to mount on a solid axle, but I figured out that chainring bolts fit inside the mounting holes perfectly, and the inner diameter of some allow an m5 bolt to fit perfectly. Works great this way.

u/GrindCrow · 1 pointr/BikeLA

I'm not in LA but came across this post while searching for a Caviar courier subreddit(looks like it doesn't exist yet). Would this work for your bike and budget?

Add a heat bag, bungees(I prefer the flat kind).

The map routing situation can be dealt with some MacGuyvering or with more expensive fixes. I have this flattish seat bag that I used to keep spare tubes in; now I have it MacGuyvered onto one of the straps of my backpack. I stick my phone in there instead of a pants pocket. I turn the app volume all the way up and can hear Gmaps routing(if I need it) through the din of NYC traffic.

Bluetooth earbuds, as already mentioned, will work. Small portable BT speakers(that you can somehow attach to a backpack) will work. If you must have the visual map to look at, maybe the mount is your only option..

u/montecycle · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

Try a nice front rack. I have a '94 Singletrack as well that I turn into my commuter during the winter. I am wanting to get a rack and believe a front rack would work better. You can easily put your backpack on there and strap it down. Here:

u/ratchetassjimmy · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

Panniers are by far the best option, but if you're short on cash you can do what myself and others have done: I had the planet bike eco rack with a milk crate zip tied to it and liked it. Just changed it to the origin8 classique front rack w/milk crate and LOVE it. Good luck.

Here's the Amazon link.

Origin8 Classique Cargo HD Front Rack

It's a pretty basic carrier but it gets the job done. Note that it doesn't come with the hardware for mounting it to your fork.

u/leadnpotatoes · 0 pointsr/bicycling

I use the Origin8 classique. Fits just fine on a 26' fork, however you are going to need to change your front wheel from a quick-release to a threaded rod. Which might be too much of a PITA for touring.
