It's just a fact. Stainless steel is sexy. This rack has a stainless frame that is sturdy enough for almost anything you can throw at it. My load limit recommendation is 70lbs, which is more than most folks can control on the front end anyway. Not just a pretty face with beefy arms either, it can fold for boxing and travel, is modular in case you decide to add or remove features. And you can customize the top plate if you want it anodized, silk screened, made of wood, or if you have other ideas. Prêt à Porteur is compatible with almost any type of steel fork, but requires a solid axle (bolt on) hub to carry the full load recommendation if the fork does not have TOP eyelets. Starts at $140.
