There are so many different bikes out there, all with unique sizes and geometry. Fitting a rack to your bike is not always easy. Old Man Mountain has an option for any kind of bike, with their adventure ready racks giving cyclists options to carry gear for whatever they want to take on. Gravel bikes, road bikes, fatbikes, full suspension, hardtails and everything in between, Old Man Mountain has a Fit Kit to put a rack on it.
Mountain bikers and bikepackers for many years have been experiencing problems with carrying cargo during their rides. They are riding hills with backpacks filled with snacks or heavy dangling bags and cups clumsily strapped to a saddle and seatpost. And with no mounting options for racks on their (suspension) bikes it was a hopeless situation.
In recent years a new trend has occurred that brings riders more stability, safety and comfort while riding their bike with gear, getting the weight off riders backs and on to their bikes. Adding a rack to your gravel or mountain bike is something more and more people do while going on a trip or a long weekend ride. Since the set-up is relatively new in the world of gravel biking and mountain biking it’s sometimes a refreshingly odd sight, turning heads along the way. Old Man Mountain racks are the most versatile racks available. Capable of mounting to full-suspension mountain bikes, gravel bikes, road bikes, fat bikes, even tri-bikes if that’s what you’re in too"
