Why not use a real bike rack on the back? Seems like it would be a lot handier.


Nowhere to mount it. If I had a bike with mounts, that is the way I would go without question. Experimented with a few homemade ideas, but nothing that worked that great. Would also like to use a seat bag like the Epic Designs/Revelate one, but don't have enough clearance.

So the weight of the rack gets loaded on the skewer?

The dropouts support the weight.

Could the Aluminum mounting point at the dropout be flipped horizontally? If it could, it would put your load weight in front of the axle ( minimizing wag-the-dog when out of the saddle) and shorten those diagonal stays a bit.

I think you would run into trouble on the caliper side.

In helping a buddy with his OMM rack last week, we had some trouble. Also, the skewer would slip under hard breaking in the horizontal dropouts, so he switched to a bolt on skewer.

Here is the Jand bag reversed on a full suspension. It fits perfectly on my medium 575.

I'll be replacing the seatpost rack with OMM Sherpa this month, and am considering using the OMM front rack to get all the weight off of the frame/bars and onto the wheels.

Looking at mine it would probably clear the caliper but that would definitely bring the panniers too far forward for heel clearance.I still brush the heel occasionally when the bags are fully loaded

Makes sense. Riding touring bikes, I forget about short chainstay matters.

Elwood - What kind of bag is that on top of the front drybag?

It's an ancient bag from Performance. Idk if it's still available. Used to use it on unsupported all day road rides. Back when I had all day to ride.

I spent the weekend at the Overland Expo and now I am really wishing I was going on that CO/UT trip. You bastards better enjoy this.
