Rack-RH: rear bike luggage carrier in 316 stainless steel and aluminium; ideal for gravel bikes, racing bikes, vintage bikes, single speed bikes, general purpose bikes, city bikes, for tourism, randonneuring and urban use.
Maximum load 20 kg; lightweight and simple, it does not alter the aesthetics of your bicycle.
Modular Kits: we have developed different clamps, to make it easier to mount the luggage rack on your bike: there are ones for frames with a disc brake or with a bracelet to be fixed directly to the tubes of the frame etc… They are made of stainless steel and are sturdy: thickness from 3 to 4 mm.
Made by hand: the production supply chain is 100% Italian and traceable.
The production of the components, machined from solid, takes advantage of skilled craftsmanship and latest generation numerically controlled machines (CNC) …
” During the production of the components, I realized how in the Milanese urban fabric, but not only here, there are extraordinary and almost invisible small businesses, now in danger of extinction. It is undeniable that the competence, the expertise and the inventiveness of a multitude of smiths, lathe operators, model-makers, foundry workers and carpenters, has been the backbone of Italian design since the 1950s to the present day. This is a reality which is, to say the least, surprising and not comprehensible through traditional socio-economic studies…”

I started to build bike luggage carrier 15 years ago
Shaping round rods when hot, then testing them on more than 25000 km of cycling round Europe…
They have written about Matteo Poli, my travelling companion and myself:
” They travelled round Europe for years by bike; from Milan to Lapland and then down to Stockholm, from Stockholm to Helsinki via Vardo Vadso in Norway (the last cities in the north close to the Russian frontier), to Brittany and by ship to Ireland (the whole ring or almost) and then in Poland, Slovakia, the United Kingdom…
Capitalizing on the experience of past journeys and taking advantage of their passion and competence for mechanics and design, they started to make original accessories for their bikes in the garage…” -GQ May 2007
Today, with the brand BAC (bicycles Alfonso Cantafora), I offer them again, to a public of enthusiasts of tourism by bike and not only them, a redesigned version for small crafted series, lightweight and simple like the prototype versions; made up of modular elements, adaptable to the geometries of many frames on the market.
