Hannah is out at the Sea Otter Classic in California, USA. It’s a four day festival of racing and a huge expo area. There are races for every type of bike, but there’s a strong leaning towards mountain biking, and if you want to see new products, prototypes, and unique bikes, it’s the place to be. Head here for all our Sea Otter 2022 Coverage
Turn any bike into a fully loaded long haul carrier, with these Aeroe racks. The Spider Rack sits on the seat stays of any bike, and the basic package comes with a single cradle. You can buy extra cradles to load up to three bags, and it’ll take a range of dry bag or stuff sack options – though there is an Aeroe branded option too. You can also turn the top rack through 90 degrees, so that you can carry your load sideways if you want to use a dropper or are a shorter rider with not much room under your saddle.
Straps on to any chainstay shape.
Maybe add some frame protection?
Cradle can rotate, especially useful for shorter riders.
You can use any dry bag to hold your stuff. You don’t have to use it for camping gear and big wilderness survival gear – Aeroe says people with e-bikes have been using them to carry spare batteries.
This looks like it could be really useful for events like the Jenn Ride, where you probably want your big bike for fun, but still need to carry camping gear.
Aero Spider Rack: $129 including one cradle, $79 for additional cradles.
There is also a bar rack version, which holds a front roll firmly above your bars, for $79.
