Compatible front rack for a Trek 520 disc
« on: March 17, 2016, 04:09:17 pm »
I bought a 2016 trek 520 disc for my upcoming Trans-am tour. The bike doesn't come with a front rack and I am having trouble finding a front low rider rack that will fit. So far I have tried an axiom and a jandd rack and neither of them work. The disc brake caliber keeps interfering with the rack. Has anyone found a front rack, low rider or not, that is compatible with the Trek 520 disc?

Old Man Mountain ( http://www.oldmanmountain.com/SFNT.html ) lists front racks for bikes with disc brakes.  They should have what you need.

I saw the same thing Dave is talking about from Old Man Mountain.  I ran into the same problem with my Disc Trucker.  We used spacers for the front Surly Nice rack to fit.  I have yet to try it but I think its gonna work fine.  Good luck.
