in the works

had this idea bouncing around "upstairs" for a while, finally got it onto some paper. porteur rack with removable pannier supports. also, additional removable mounting points at the cantilever posts, mid-fork mounts, or p-clamp for when the pannier supports are in use.

otherwise pls disregard the previous post (that is, unless you would like to contact me!)

Questions, Comments, Suggestions


please do not contact me for general rack sales inquiries. there are oodles of off the shelf porteur racks available for your consumption at significantly lower prices than i can compete with.


if you have a very specific set of portaging needs, and are willing to pay the price for a one-off full custom rack then shoot me an email.


please DO send me emails if you have general questions/comments/suggestions about stuff you have seen on this weblog, or if you just wanna chat.

universal mini porteur

its a little guy, but still big enough to carry a case of beer
fender mount
fits well on your vintage MTB
works well with a rack strap, lots of places to hook bungees

86ft of tubing
not that impressive, huh?
maybe 5 racks worth with leftover scraps that get re-used here and there.
not to mention the "too short" bin
thats when i over-file a cope, then its "too short"
its ok they always get used, it all gets used.
