PUBLIC Porteur Rack

List $129
Special Introductory Price

The PUBLIC Porteur Rack is inspired by a front bike rack design found on classic French delivery cycles. The wide front rack allowed newspaper couriers to pedal the busy streets of Paris while keeping their heavy stacks of papers within arms reach. Today, porteur racks are popular with everyone from hardcore bike messengers to Dutch grandmothers because the sturdy wide platform is one of the most versatile ways to carry large loads by bike.

The PUBLIC Porteur Rack is made from lightweight, durable aluminum and is easy to install on any PUBLIC bike. Its simple design works equally well for carrying a rack of beer or a case of wine, a bag of dog food or kitty litter, a stack of pizzas or a flat of strawberries. Some bike commuters prefer to strap a shoulder bag or briefcase onto a porteur rack rather than use bicycle pannier bags. The PUBLIC Porteur Rack also makes an excellent platform to bolt on a sturdy crate, basket, or pet carrier for your bike.

We highly recommend keeping a few bungee straps or a cargo net on your PUBLIC Porteur Rack whenever you leave home. You never know what sweet discoveries your bike ride will bring.
