Could be more secure!
Unlike other front racks I've used, this one only uses 1 bolt/nut for the leveling adjustment. I'm talking about the part where you attach one end to your fork and then slide the other end until the rack is level, and then tighten. I used a locking nylon nut with some loctite on the bolt, and after several months it came loose and fell forward onto the front tire. Over the bars I went, breaking my collarbone and front fork.
Now, other front racks I've used, in retrospect, are better designed. Nitto uses two bolts in the same spot. Even Wald, the cheapest possible option, attach with the metal strap to the handlebars making this sort of fail impossible.
Otherwise, a good rack. I like the mounting space for a front dyno light, and I've used both small pannier bags as well as a basket mounted to the top. Nice and wide for that application. Just be sure to work in some redundancy when you mount it. Cons:
Don't trust the mounting instructions, make sure you have some redundancy worked in. Would Buy Again:
