Technical Details

I acquired this rack from Julian Turner in 2010.

This British rack is 369 mm. tall, 70 mm. wide, 19 mm. thick, and weighs 746 g. The frame is made from 9.5 mm. steel bent into shape, with an internal width of 35 mm. and a 34 mm. diameter welded coiled eye. There are 6 brake bars. The bars are 19 mm. in diameter and 70 mm. long. Allowing 45 mm. for the rope leaves 67 mm. for spreading the bars.

There are no markings on this rack.


I do not know whether this rack is a commercial product or if it is homemade. For some unknown reason, someone added epoxy near where the shaft leaves the eye, filling a gap that the weld did not cover.
