Front carrier - frame mounted


We find it really handy to be able to carry heavy items on our bikes and so decided to design a front rack that securely attaches to the frame. The rack does not affect steering and the bike can sail through traffic even with heavier items on board. We have equipped it with the innovative VarioStraps system, which can be adjusted to adapt to the size and shape of whatever you are carrying. When not in use, the straps can be tucked away discreetly on the rack.

This aluminium-version is compatible with the Ortlieb Rack-Lock system.

The aluminium front rack is available for the Bosch e-bike model Oskar in graphite silver, as well as for Gustav and Greta in mineral grey as an upgrade, replacing the steel front rack used until 2019.

  • weight: 900 g
  • max. load 15 kg
  • mounting kit and VarioStraps included

shipping options

There are two options for you to buy a Schindelhauer bike:

1. online purchase and delivery to a Schindelhauer dealer of your choice (euro zone only):
A preffered choice would be to have your bike delivered to one of our dealers at no extra cost. They set up the bike for you professionally and will have it ready for pickup by arrangement. During your online purchase process, you will be shown the option to select a dealer near you as delivery address.  

2. delivery directly to your home:
If you cannot find a Schindelhauer dealer in your area through our dealer search, you can also have your desired model delivered directly to your home. The bike is delivered almost completely assembled. As explained in the manual which comes with the bike, only the tires must be filled with the appropriate air pressure, the pedals and, if included, the frame-mounted front rack need to be attached, as well as the handlebars set straight.
