Loading Dock Rear Rack

As cyclists, we all hit our breaking point of carrying beers, groceries, or books all on our backs. Let's face it -- pointy things hurt, eggs crush easily, and sweat maps of a messenger bag don't look good on anyone's back. It's time to get to some racks, and the Portland Design Works Loading Dock Rear Rack is the perfect place to start. With ample storage room, a beautiful design, and a 35lb weight capacity, the Loading Dock acts as the extra set of hands that you need to carry your stuff.

Portland Design Works' Loading Dock uses oversized aluminum tubing for its frame construction. The lines of the frame elegantly move from the rear droupout to the brake bridge area of your commuter. It attaches using a minimal amount of hardware -- four bolts to be exact. And even if your steed doesn't have upper-mounting bosses, PDW has provided two P-clamps that attach the rack to the seat stays. To ensure a proper weight capacity, a longer lifespan, and timeless aesthetics, the Loading Dock features a double-ply bamboo deck for you cargo to rest on. Once attached, the angle of the deck is fully adjustable -- finally, a rack that can adjust to any awkward load.

The Portland Design Works Loading Dock Rear Rack is available in a 140x381mm size and in one color. Please note that this rack is designed for bicycles with, at a minimum, mounting bosses located at the rear dropouts. The Loading Dock also has a maximum recommended carrying load of 35lb, and the rack height measure to 368mm.

Love the look of this for an older road bike I have and it sets up easy. Easy for making my road bike into an every day machine

Will this rack fit road bikes without eyelets on the frame?

Unfortunately no.

Hi and thanks for your question! Due to weight bearing demands typically placed on rear racks, we do not recommend installing the Loading Dock on bikes without dropout eyelets.

will this fit on my 20" Surly Ogre with 29er wheels?

Yeah, it'll fit for sure. I have it on the whip pictured here, with 29er wheels and there is plenty of clearance. I don't think the mount hardware would be an issue, since the Ogre has about a rack mount options.

Nice whip!
