Bicycle rear racks & low riders at good prices from starbike.com
Touring cyclists with their trekking bikes
require a rear rack and an optional low rider where they can put on their pannier bags.
The rear rack is being fixated in special eyelets of the frame while a low rider is
a fork carrier, which is mounted on a front fork with low rider eyelets.
Riders of mountainbikes
often need to
install a seatpost-mounted rear rack solution because many frames don't come with the necessary eyelets.
Both a rear rack and a low rider change the riding characteristics of a bike.
Lowering the centre of gravity by installing the panniers as low as possible improves the ride stability.
An alternative for mountainbikers on short rides can be a bicycle daypack, which are also available with hydration packs.
