Anyone recommend someone I can talk to about making me a couple of these?

Conversely, I guess I could goto Thailand and try to track down this guy to make me some.

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

Thanks Jaret. The second one is more applicable, but it does state that it this rack does not mount to low-rider bosses or onto canti-brake bikes. :(

Here you go! They are heavy, but looking at what you want to fabricate, you probably don't care about that.

Sorry mate, didn't read things through. I thought you were just looking for a steel front rack with a platform, which is harder and harder to find. If you don't care about the esthetic side of things, pretty much anyone who can weld can fabricate you something, it's a pretty basic job.

Vallie Components is the only game in town for top-quality custom rack fabrication; he had me filing that six-pack rack down to ridiculous sub-0.1mm tolerances!

They make one that mounts to the canti studs as well. Also check out the nitto mini rack
