Description

Simple and intelligent.

Racks have traditionally been a utilitarian afterthought, a web of straight, small-diameter tubing forming a simple structure. The Portland Design Works Payload Rear Rack parts ways with those uninspiring cargo-carriers, in favor of eye-pleasing organic shapes and a bamboo deck.

Its tough steel tubing is curved to create flowing lines with a graceful profile that can still support up to 77 pounds. To complete the Payload, Portland Design Works tops it off with a double-ply bamboo deck. It installs to standard braze-ons, with the included M5 hardware.

Hey Ricardo,

This rack mounts to standard braze-on mounts for racks or fenders, so as long as your bike has those braze on mounts, you should be good to go.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Works well but you need the right bags.

So I finally got a chance to get out and take this rack on a nice long overnight, and the rack performed very well even when loaded to max capacity. Everything stayed in place very well my only concern is that certain bags will fit better than others. The swooping legs on it make some of the hard plastic backed bags not want to sit perfectly against the rack and bumpy dirt roads can occasionally give you a little buzz from a spoke touching the corner of your bag. Anything with a more rounded profile works very well though. All things considered though, the rack performs very well and never gave me any signs of flexing.

I have one one my 22" Ogre. The only issue I found was that it has to mount on the rearward mounting hole, which is the same hole the fender attaches to.

I've put an Ortlieb Back-Roller Plus on mine. It fit just fine.
