February T-Rack Pre-Order

165.00

Round 2!

        This Rack was designed in conjunction with several pals that love nothing more than to ride their bikes and get lost. The idea behind the T-Rack is to create a minimal, and light weight rear rack that can clear large tire formats while also bringing even more Triple Bottle Mounts to the bicycle.

        The Triple Bottle mounts on the rack leg make this rack the ultimate bikepacking rack for folks running non traditional touring setups - frame bags etc. The top deck is a perfect saddle bag support or dry bag mount, and the legs allow you to carry up to a gallon of water at the same time. Add more water bottle mounts, extra stuff sacks for those easy access goods, or have it be your dedicated carrying solution for a smaller trip. Think cross bike overnight / think cross country dirt tour.

 

       - This run we are limiting the design to the Standard version only. -

I am discontinuing the Micro Pannier version for this run because of new pannier solutions that i think make more sense. Outer Shell bags based out of San Francisco, CA makes a Pico Pannier with a rigid structure that will mount directly to the triple mounts. This saves weight with a shorter support strut and maintains the same carrying capacity as previously available micro panniers. Furthermore, I think this is a more elegant solution that fits the ethos for this rack. Light weight, high utility, big tires.

 

This rack is ideal for everything from cross bikes to mid fat bikes. It'll clear a 29x3.4" tire with some mud clearance to spare.

 

The first run came to 380 grams without hardware. With the use of some thinner wall tubing, I am hoping to get the weight closer to 350 grams without sacrificing strength.

There have been clearance issues with seat stay mounted disc brakes, as with any rear rack, so please let me know beforehand if you have this style before purchasing and we can make sure there wont be any compatibility issues. If you are currently using a rear rack with your system, there should not be any issues. The problem arises when the strut needs to go alongside the disc caliper (with a low mounting eyelet on SS mounted disc brakes). This can usually be spaced out to work with a rack spacer kit.

Racks will ship out early to mid April.
