Popped into the local Bikestation today and spotted this curious Axiom "DLX Front Rack." It's a mini front rack with a wood platform.
It looks to be functionally very similar to the Nashbar mini front rack, but with a touch more class.
The finish is sort of a blasted silvery color. It's ok. For me, I would have preferred chrome or something more metallic, but it's not too shabby.
The rack appears to have pretty adjustable fittings, so there's a good chance you'll be able to dial in the fit to your bike.
A downside is that the rack is not shaped to play well with certain randonneur bags that are meant to be slipped over the back of the rack. It will still support them from the bottom, but it won't have that added stability.
I believe retail is about $45.
