We’re giving away three sets of Old Man Mountain Axle Packs for our 177th Collective Reward, and three lucky winners will receive their choice of Fit Kit to go with them. Find details on this and the growling list of other prizes in this round of giveaways here…

Teased last fall at the MADE bike show in Portland, the Old Man Mountain Axle Pack is a unique fork-mount adapter that attaches to any fork using their thru-axle Fit Kit and mounting pucks. Each upright is made from 6061 aluminum, measures just under a foot (~30cm), and weighs 74 grams without hardware. The Axle Packs are rated to carry up to 10 kilograms (22 pounds) per pair. Today, we’re thrilled to share that we’ll be giving away a pair of Axle Packs and a Fit Kit to three randomly selected members of the Bikepacking Collective, a roughly $150 value for each winner.

The Axle Packs are specifically designed for use with Old Man Mountain Axle Fit Kits, a byproduct of Old Man Mountain’s merger with Robert Axle Project. For those unfamiliar with Old Man Mountain Fit Kits, they’re simply thru-axles with eyelets on both ends, enabling bikes without rack mounts to run any Old Man Mountain rack or the new Axle Packs. The OMM Axle Pack builds on this approach by offering a way for folks who don’t have fork mounts to use triple-mount cargo cages, such as Salsa’s Anything Cage or the King Cage Manythings Cage.

Neil tested the Axle Pack on a week-long bikepacking trip in Arizona this winter for extra water capacity during long, dry stretches on the Arizona Trail. He was impressed by how stable the system was, its weight capacity, and the fact that it’s compatible with any fork that uses a thru-axle.
