We covered New Zealand company Freeload’s first rack, the Sport Rack, back in Issue #150 where Karen simply lashed dry bags to the top of the rack. Since then, Freeload has launched their Tour Rack and Side Frames to greatly increase pannier compatibility.
The $165 (fluctuates with currency) Tour Rack attaches just like the Sport Rack via a robust locking strap system designed to work on nearly any bike, particularly those without rack braze-ons.
Tour Decks are available as a retrofit to your existing Sport Deck for $38, and Side Frames retail for $42.
Based on Karen’s positive experience with these racks, they seem well worth considering when outfitting yourself for your next adventure.
