Here's what others have to say...

Upper Mounts

The adjustable mounts on the front of the rack make it easy to install on any bike.

Lower Mounts

Here you can see how the rack fits on the lower mounts. Even works with disc brakes.

A Rack for the Back.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This rack is pretty standard but does exactly what you want a rack to do. I used it on recent adventure tour that was 50/50 paved road and dirt roads and I didn't have any issues with the rack moving around or flexing during the ride.

The rack was easy to install and worked great with the included mounts it had for my bike. I switched the mounts so they would fit the wider frame and then used some blue threadlock to make sure the bolts wouldn't come loose while riding.

I used this rack to put on my pad and my tent and didn't have any issues at all with it. I used a bungee strap and they were held in place the entire time. Where I didn't have a lot of weight on the rack I didn't feel any swaying but that might change if there is more weight on the rack.

Not really an issue with the rack, but Backcountry.com hasn't updated the pictures to show the current rack that only flares out on the back side of the rack for attaching straps.

Solid rack for a good price. Doesn't have a low hanging option for panniers, but it does a good job of hauling gear.

Rack Attack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great rack. Mounted up easily to my commuter bike. Nice and stable. Carried 30lbs over 60 miles on a camping trip. No issues at all. Only giving 4 stars, because I am not sure about long term durability, but so far so good.

I have an old Lone Peak pannier, with nylon clips, that completely enclose the rack rail. They are 8mm in size. Will this clip completely around this rack? There are replacement clips available for 11m, but that adds another $20 to the project.

Responded on

The rails on my measure just over 8mm, so I think they should fit.

mounting hardware?

the allen head screws use a very small allen wrench and are super easy to strip out. easy to replace at hardware store or LBS. the two metal attachment strips that bolt on to the top of the frame bend easy and often. after much modification it works like it should. in my opinion it should have come with stronger hardware to begin with. save your money and buy a higher end rack. this one sucks.

So Great

If I could give 6 stars I would, except for the tail light situation. My other rack had a hole so I could mount a sturdy bracket and my light, this one comes with a flimsy metal bracket that clamps onto the back, so my light is lower than I'd like.
If your bike doesn't have mounts on the seat stays, this comes with rubber-lined collars for mounting to the seat stays. The third support bar will keep your pannier bags from hitting your wheel.


Bumped it down to 4 stars after the bracket holding my taillight gave in to the constant wind from riding and broke after only a few weeks. I managed to thread a bolt through an opening in the back and attached my light with a spacer and washer.
