Solid and well designed

Posted10 June 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good quality, really sturdy
I bought this for my Circe Cycles Helios, a 20" wheeled tandem. It's a great front rack, it clears my Avid BB7 disc brakes and is absolutely rock solid. Had to stretch it a bit to fit on my (fairly wide) front fork, but it went on nicely and feels like it could handle much more than its stated load capacity.
It's worth knowing that it wouldn't work with V brakes or callipers in the standard position (I believe Tern bikes have the V brakes on the back of the fork rather than the front so this isn't a problem) but as we've got discs it's perfect for us.

Good item let down by flimsy welded alloy tabs.

Posted29 September 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality
The rack does what I wanted it to. But on the first outing the metal attachment tab snapped off. Had to use a piece of string to get home. Rather than have the hassle of returning it to Evans I used a steel P clip to fix it. I will need to use 2 more to replace the other two tabs.
If I had time to research it I would probably replace the whole thing with a steel one from a different company.

WELL MADE LIGHTWEIGHT VALUE FOR MONEY CARRIER

Posted10 March 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
I was looking for a compact front carrier for my folder for a pair of small panniers.The Spartan rack was perfect for my requirements..very lightweight,beautifully made and good looking.
The design allowed the atachment of two panniers hung low down..this added to the steering stability of the bike.
All in all a great value for money purchase.!!!!!!!!
