The AC LowRider is incredibly solid and easy to install. This front touring rack is a classic design for bikes equipped with mid fork eyelets. It's designed to carry panniers closer to the ground; this lowers the center of gravity of the load and improves handling. Your front panniers will mount low, but maintain plenty of ground clearance, ensuring the panniers won’t scrape the ground. This is important as some larger front panniers might hit the ground when mounted on front racks that don’t offer as much ground clearance, especially bikes with 26” wheels. The AC lowrider's clever adjustable arm allows you to level off the top of the rack no matter the position on the fork. The spacer ensures the rack doesn’t damage the fork’s finish, whatever its shape.

  1. Not good for 2015 Raleigh Sojourner

    By dancingcyclist June 06, 2015

    Very unhappy about mounting on my 2015 Sojourner. Ended up having to make my own spacers and locate shims and correct length bolts. I've spent countless hours shimming rack to clear Disc-caliper and still only have about 1-2mm clearance. Not to mention bending the fender stays which changes the tire-to-fender clearance.
    I needed 4 spacers approximately 25mm to obtain that amount of clearance, that's a lot of spacing. I'm concerned about the weight limit now as that much shimming changes the weight load on the bolt attached to the folk with having only about 1/4" of thread grip depth.

    I asked about this very possibility before purchasing and was told there would be not problem with only a small amount of shimming. This is NOT the case. Still have not had a chance to fully test mounting w/weight.

  2. Pricy But Easy Fit

    By phoray March 22, 2012

    This rack is very expensive for the material and labor that went into it but it is an easy fit and comes with all the necessary hardware, bolts, spacers & washers that you will need and installs very quickly because of it's adjustability. Highly recommend because campared to the other low riders I've seen this is the best design and quality.

    My friend from Czech republik see it and he want one . So I ordered one AC low rider for his nice antique touring Cannondale touring bike . This think survived some tours in Europe and 14 000 km tour in Asia. I just recieve some pictures , rack is really beaten up but still hold - really amazing product for reasonable price!

  4. Raleigh Sojourner

    Nice fit, solid when mounted. It does have a very close clearance with the front disc brake, but with the spacers and a little pressure adequate clearance is obtained for full motion of the disc brake.

  5. AC LowRider

    By Trek 520 October 25, 2010

    I have on my another touring bicycles much better front racks , This one was present so i installed to my hybrid Raleigh 50 C and i tell you it is nice fit .Not bad low rider at all if you consider rack durability and price when you are on the road on fully loaded bicycle . I have it now 3 years ,most of the time on my birding trip this AC low rider was overloaded and still hold well . I think this AC Lowrider is excellent product for bike touring , path and urban cyclists , even for long distances touring . If you are riding mostly on asphalt or fast hard packed roads get one .
