Blackburn Racks


The Blackburn FL-1 is designed to carry fully loaded panniers lower and over the front wheel. This weight distribution helps to create a lower center of gravity which provides maximum stability and ease of handling. The FL-1 works well with mountain bikes, tandems, and touring bikes. To support the primary weight the FL-1 is bolted to the eyelet of the front fork end, there is then a vinyl coated clamp that fastens around each fork blade to secure and steady the rack. To prevent lateral motion in the weighted front, there is a hoop styled cross brace included, or instead you can bolt it directly to the discontinued AF-1 or the MT-F rack and not use the cross brace. Again, it can be used with or without a Blackburn AF-1 or MT-F front rack. Available in Silver or Black. Weight 531 grams.
