Front rack for Marin four corners
« on: June 09, 2022, 10:23:59 am »
I just purchased a size small Marin four corners with 650 wheels. I ordered the Bontrager carry forward rack but it doesn’t fit. Has anyone installed a front rack and which one did you buy. I want one with a small platform and able to mount front panniers

My wife has a 2020 650b Marin Four Corners Elite, a slightly lighter frame/fork setup than the standard Four Corners, but the same geometry specs I believe (although not 100 percent sure).
I installed a Tubus Tara front rack on that bike for her, no problem. Worked great, although she now runs front cargo cages w/ rear rack/panniers as it's a better setup for her for all road touring (i.e., dirt/gravel in addition to pavement).
I realize that the Tara does not have a platform as it's a low rider, but it should work if you don't find another option.
