The rear rack for bicycles is an essential piece of equipment if you are used to travelling regularly with this mode of transport. Whether you need to carry a parcel, a shopping bag, your work clothes or other items, the rear rack for bicycles is ideal for providing suitable storage and avoiding the need to carry a backpack, for example.
A bicycle rear rack is a piece of equipment that sits above the rear wheel of the bicycle and is attached to the fork. It is a flat rack to which you can attach various types of equipment. As the name suggests, the rear bike rack is therefore dedicated to carrying luggage.
If your bike does not have this type of equipment, it is quite possible to add a rear bike rack. There are models with a dedicated mounting system that can be easily installed. There are several types of models to choose from, so you can choose the style, colour or price that suits your needs. The rear bike carrier is therefore a particularly useful piece of equipment when you want to carry certain things on your bike on a regular basis.
The rear bike carrier is most often associated with a carrier bag. This is because this type of bag is very practical for everyday use. It attaches to the carrier with a dedicated fastening system and can therefore be attached and detached very easily. Once removed, if it is a convertible model, it can be worn as a shoulder bag, a tote bag or even a backpack.
The waterproof BackRoller Urban bike bag by Ortlieb for example is a sober, elegant, waterproof model capable of holding a volume of up to 20L. For transporting a computer, you can opt for the Two Wheel Gear PC bag. For shopping, the Bikezac shopping bag from Cobags is the ideal model to take to the shop and then attach to your bike for the journey. Available in a range of colours including black, this product is a must-have accessory when looking for items designed for bike travel. There are a multitude of possibilities for finding the right bag for your bike carrier. Thanks to their dedicated system, the panniers will be easily detached and attached to the latter.
In order to have even more space dedicated to transporting one's belongings, it is quite possible to complement the presence of the rear luggage rack in particular with a basket at the front. The basket can also be easily attached to the front of the bike and will allow you to put a shopping bag or a handbag for example. It allows you to easily keep an eye on your belongings, but its capacity will generally be less than what can be obtained through a luggage rack which is why it will be perfect as a complement.
The Rasket Pelago front rack will be especially valuable with its robust steel design that can carry up to 5kg.
