This front rack was brewed and born right in the Fern Bicycles workshop in Berlin. Over the past years we handbuilt numerous and kept on improving this unique design. Finally we are proud to present this production model, which was made with the same great attention to detail and from the same 0.8mm thin walled high strength 25CrMo4 steel as if it would be handmade by us!
Featuring our famous 3D bend diamond design, it is the perfect front rack for all those searching for a smaller rack which fit's perfectly on a fast randonneur, gravel or race bike. This rack makes your bike look even faster than without one!
The Diamond rack allows you to carry a handlebar bag, a sleeping bag or a sixer... what ever it takes to improve your bikepacking or randonneuring adventure.
Comes with fully adjustable 270mm stays for fork lowrider eyelet or canti stud mounting.
Extra long 415mm stays for drop out mounting available now as well. If in doubt go for the long stays, always better to cut something off than the other way round ;)
Dedicated light mount to fit most lights on the market. Clean light cable routing with custom designed zip tie guides.
Put that thing on you bike, pack your stuff and you are ready for your next big adventure!
Fern, Allygn and Gramm-Tourpacking teamed up to create the perfect fitting handlebar bag for this type of rack, which is available now in the Fern and Gramm Onlineshops! Go check it out here!
Many people ask how much load the rack can handle and it actually can carry a lot. We have been testing it with up to 70kgs.
But, usually the fork mounting points / eyelets are the weakest link in the chain. Especially on carbon forks you should be very careful not to overload or over torque the mounting points.
ALWAYS check back with the maker of the fork how much weight it can carry!
Also for bike handling reasons, we usually recommend to use our racks for a maximum load of around 5-8 kgs.
All racks are made in Taiwan.
Please check before your order if your fork has a front fork crown drilling or eyelet / thread!
You'll also need either fork dropout mounts (order long stays), or mid fork leg lowrider mounts, anything cage mounts or cantilever brake bosses (order short stays) for installing this rack! If in doubt order long stays!
The rack is designed to work best on headangles from 71°to 73°. Shallower angles may work as well, depending on fork length and wheel / tire size.
M5 Bolts for M5 fork crown mounts are now included!
On carbon forks please make sure with the manufacturer of the fork that the mounting points are suitable and safe for rack installation. We do note take any responsibility for fork failures or other damage!
