Care and feeding of your Surly Rack:

  • Although the Surly Rack has been phosphate coated inside and out and powdercoated on the exterior to protect it from the elements, it’s a good idea to coat the innards with a rust inhibitor like J.P.Weigle’s framesaver, boiled linseed oil or engine flogging spray. This will certainly prolong the life of your rack, as it would your steel frame
  • Secure pannier bags onto the rack so that they don’t move around and create thin spots in the powdercoat. Over time, the powdercoat on your rack may develope thin spots from normal wear and tear. Before you wear it down to bare metal, it’s a good idea to touch up these spots with some good spray primer and paint, some brush-on car touch up paint and/or wrap it up with some electrical tape in these hot spots
