I had an impossible time to find my MTB, a giant Yukon front rack, I replaced the stock front fork with IRD 29er solids to retain the geometry of the suspension fork, and I flipped the rack and managed an installation, which was in 2010, and it was already working. I think the advantage of this rack is that it is simple and has a wide range of installation possibilities. In unusual installation cases, it is a cheap rack that you can modify if necessary. Yes, it is steel, its weight is heavier than aluminum, but it is very strong, everything is fixed together by locking nuts, in my experience, they have never loosened a little. I did have to add a spacer because I had a disc brake and got a longer screw, but it was also with the fender, which made it more complicated because it was on a fork for 29 people, I had to flip the rack and I had to use the reflector to install it. My original plan was to replace the rack with the front rack of the Jandd at some point, at which point I was still using the rack and never had to switch. You won't find any better value in the bike rack, as long as you can install it, it will be a good general-purpose rack you can rely on. I have a road bike that I think is very good to convert from MTB, and I have exchanged and customized forks, handlebars, rear racks, pedals and more toe clamps than most racks cost, which is still my front rack. At this price, if you think it might be useful to you, I suggest you give it a try.
