I'm looking for a set of front racks for my touring bike. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

... Just curious. Having used various baskets, racks, etc on the front of bikes in the past, I've never liked what it does to handling. Are you already fully loaded-up in the rear?

Blackburn lowrider racks work well, but if you need to carry bulky loads, you may need a full-size rack in front-like I have on my old heavy-duty C'Dale touring bike. Remember-keep everything tightly packed in the bags, or the motion of them flopping around will make hadling awful!

blackburn lowriders are great. just watch those corners! a smaller size bag will give better clearance. And keep heavy stuff down low as possible. has a couple of good ones (nm)Silverback
