Trek 520 Front Rack
« on: May 31, 2017, 11:25:09 pm »
I am having some difficulty in fitting a front pannier rack on my 2017 Trek 520, with disc brakes.  Tried the Arkel  AC Lowrider front rack, and it would not fit with the disc brake.  Then tried the Janndd extreme front rack tall boy - same problem with the front disc brake interfering with the mounts.   Any suggestions for a proper rack or retrofitting would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

Maybe check out Old Man Mountain:

I find their web site confusing and lacking, but maybe browse and get in touch with them if you need more details.

Call Wayne at thetouringstore.com.  He's a great resource for what will fit where, and a great guy to deal with.

Thank you, Indy and Pat.  I did contact Wayne at TheTouringStore.com, and he was a great help.  Ordered the Tubus Tara from him just now.   Thanks so much!
