I built a Single speed bike based on a old Road bike frame. What I want to do is to install a luggage carrier to the front for some daily transports (because i like the retro look of those carriers).
But I don't want it to be permanently installed on my bike if there's any way.

So, does anyone know a possibility for a (removable) luggage carrier for a Road bike frame?

    Could you clarify what you're trying to carry? Depending on what you need, a large removable handlebar bag may be a possibility.

I'd have a look at http://store.velo-orange.com/index.php/accessories/racks-decaleurs.html A "decaleur" is a removable handlebar bag mount. You'll still need a (non-removeable) rack for support too though, but for a retro look and larger bag capacity than without a rack, it's a possibility.


Removable makes it unsafe, as it will jump up and down while riding, unless you can get any type of carrier that has a proper lock thingy. Use a lid or straps to keep your stuff in the carrier, for that same reason, they jump like mad!

  • I agree. Maybe a large handlebar bag will work (though even that is dangerous if overloaded), but a front rack needs to be REALLY firmly mounted, and a removable rack just won't do that unless a lot of extra care goes into the design. Commented Jul 26, 2013 at 21:18
