No PorterRack mounts? No problem! – Front Rack Alternatives
No PorterRack mounts on your legacy year Xtracycle EdgeRunner or FreeRad converted cargo bike? No worries! If your Xtracycle does not have the PorterRack mounts needed to install our custom made front rack, there are still some great options for you to carry cargo up front.
Most of these options are likely available or can be ordered from your local bike shop so be sure to check with them before buying online!
Wald baskets – $13 – $40
Wald has been making their ubiquitous light weight front baskets in the US since 1905. These are great for bringing home left overs, carrying library books, hauling your small pup – you name it, they can likely handle it.
Origin8 Classique Cargo HD Front Rack – ~$65 (online or local bike shop)

Here is an example of this rack used with a crate strapped to the platform.
Crust Bikes Clydesdale Cargo Fork – $245 – $265
