Reviews of Old Man Mountain Sherpa Rear Rack
your price $144.99 + ships freeChoose
My wife and I both ride Trek Mamba 29'ers. We have used our OMM racks for over 5 years and approximately 7000 miles of mixed riding during that time. From local rides to multi day self contained off road and various Rails To Trails. Never, and I mean NEVER a problem with the rack or quick release system. (You need to use the enclosed QR) to insure proper fit. I generally never carry more than 25 lbs and more often less than 20 lbs. as my lightweight backpacking gear doubles as bike gear. The rack is very easy to install although it's nice to have an extra pair of hands. Once a year I tighten all of the bolts but apart from that the rack is maintenance free. I've suggested the OMM to at least 6 friends who ride disc brake bikes. There's not a lot of "bells and whistles" on this rack, just good dependable service. Bolt it on...and make some miles.
I noticed that the price seems to have increased since I bought my rack. But I guess that's progress. Also, and this is my only complaint. I can't understand how they can charge $13.99 for a set of band clamps that sell for less than $3 in any hardware store. I know OMM sells them in several sizes but you should simply include your tube size and get a set of clamps included in the price.
In the past year or so I have also invested in BikePacking Gear, frame bag, handlebar roll, seat bag and camelbak. I use this system a lot when solo and no tent, etc. My wife prefers a tent and a luxury or 2. If traveling with panniers I won't use a rack that doesn't say Old Man Mountain!
Another Great rack
Lightweight, durable, well constructed and very stable.
Also had to deal with a unique bike and Old Man Mountain customer service was terrific. I highly recommend this product and company.
