- Fitting rack to 29er with no mounting points
Salsa do a collar that bolts to the seat post – someone was looking for something similar on here the other day. Think there’s co m:part one too…
May have been me – was a few months ago though. Ended up buying the Salsa Racklock as it was the only one that was the right size; the m:part one was larger IIRC.
They do come in other sizes, and there’s a few besides the m:part one on eBay – you could use one of them, assuming you can get the right size, with rubberised p-clips to hold a rear rack on.Posted 4 years agomugsys_m8Subscriber
I’ve made it my peronal mission to help my FIL. He is going mtb touring.
Up to now he has been using an old ’90’s hardtail with rack mounts. And carries a dry bag strapped to the top. He now has a new Mondraker 29er hardtail. I would like help with finding a solution to get a rear rack onto the 29er.
I know about frame bags, I know about solutions for mounting drybags onto handlebars. I know about carradice saddle bags. Can the ‘fountain of all knowledge’ TM STW assist with rear rack options.
I thought about a tubus with the quick release mounting kit. However looking at photos of the bike the seat stay junction is below the height of the top of the tyre. So I think the rack would need to attach to the seat post. The seatpost collar is maybe below the top of the tyre or maybe level: difficult to tell with the photos I have.
Is there a rack that attaches to the seatpost and the quick release? Not keen on seatpost only option. Whilst i will make him aware of the newr style bikepacking options I need to see about the rear rack option. Wonder if I could make something to attach conventional rack stays to the seatpost.
Oh nearly forgot…
