Our beautiful, sturdy Porteur Crate is the perfect accessory for anyone who uses their bike as an actual form of transportation and not just for the occasional bit of exercise. Low and wide, the crate is designed to fit perfectly on the Velo Orange Porteur Rack, available to purchase as an add on in the drop down menu.
Includes hardware to fit to your rack, but as every rack is different the Porteur comes un-drilled unless requested or ordered with a rack. For best results we recommend visiting your local bike shop for installation.

Capturing the soul of New York through upcycled design
Surname Goods Co. - Timothy Skehan and Steven Bukowski
Whether transforming old planks from the Coney Island Boardwalk into beautiful coasters or salvaging wood destined for the chipper in order to craft super cool custom bike fenders, each new design by Surname begins with the materials. They are committed to sustainable design in a way that takes a fresh look at classic pieces and uses reclaimed materials from NYC to create both beauty and purpose from metal and wood which otherwise would be discarded and lost. Both talented craftsmen and avid urban cyclists, Surname's co-founders Timothy Skehan (with a background in photography and fine art) and Steve Bukoski (with a background in industrial product design) form a damn near perfect combo. Together in their Long Island City studio and workshop, they meticulously craft products that are both aesthetically elegant and ruggedly functional while managing to preserve a small piece of the city itself with everything they build.
Process & Materials
Each design by Surname Goods Co. begins with reclaimed materials sourced right here in New York City or the nearby areas (most wood comes from trees picked up in NYC that otherwise would be chipped up and discarded.) They are committed to sustainable design through considered planning and production of each and every product. SGC's desire is to create pieces that are both timeless and also unique amongst other reclaimed objects. Furthermore, they design with the production of each object in mind, with the intent to produce all of our goods either in-house or locally. All products are hand crafted using traditional wood working machines and techniques. SGC prefers to partner with other small businesses whenever possible, with the aims of strengthening the community and keeping manufacturing alive in the US.
