The front rack came with no instructions, but it seemed simple enough to figure out. A quick Google Search suggested a YouTube video titled “How to install Ride1Up Basket + Platform.” The first minute showed what I needed to know. The only trouble I had was extending the wiring for the headlamp. The video shows extra wire wrapped up in the front wiring harness – just enough to allow the light’s new placement at the front of the rack. That was not the case for my 700XR. I ended up splicing in a foot of wire so my headlight could reach the front of the rack. I used solder and heat-shrink for the extension. The installed front rack provides a platform measuring roughly 12 inches by 5 inches. With racks over both wheels now, my bike looks balanced. In addition, I can better distribute the weight of my gear on my next long ride. I have tried a few items. The rack can hold a sleeping bag, tent, or cooler – the possibilities are exciting. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the front rack. My 700 looks better and is more functional with the front rack than without it. What do I like best? I like how the front rack moves the headlight forward. The new light placement eliminates the long shadow cast by my front tire. This was an unexpected improvement. At night, all I see now is the road. (Maybe R1U could call it the “Headlight Extension Kit + Platform.”)

    I liked look of front rack on bike, what I don’t like is basket, that one should be welded too also basket is too short, if you run over bump or potholes anything from bashet might get out, also dirt will get in closing/opening mechanism so it eill be harder to take it out, I recommend rack but basket is 👎

    Best purchase I ever made (Spring 2021). My husband and I have the Ride 1 Up. 700 series. My mileage is just shy of 1,000 miles. I am 62 and overweight. My bike allows me to get much needed exercise. I tell this to anyone who has asked me if I like my bike. Very satisfied with my purchase.🙂

    The rack itself is very well made and strong. There were no printed instructions provided. I would put the difficulty of assembly at a 7 out of 10, 10 being the most difficult. This is due to a lack of instructions and the force needed to get the clamps tightened onto the forks. Also, zip ties should be provided to tie the front light wiring in place. Overall, I like the front rack and would recommend it to your customers with the above caviots. I have the Cafe Cruiser.
