While we love mixing racks into our setups when extra hauling capacity is required, the challenge with most racks is that they can’t accommodate different axle widths, mounting points, and frame designs. The new Old Man Mountain Divide Rack is the evolution of their classic rack, and it uses the same lightweight construction but with redesigned fit kits that make it one of the most versatile rack options available.
The Divide Rack is made from lightweight aluminum tubing and can carry a whopping 70 pounds when used with a thru-axle mounting kit. It has lower pannier rails to make loading and unloading easier with the top deck loaded, enclosed pannier loops, fork mounting pucks for bikes without rack eyelets (including suspension forks), and the dropout mounts are height adjustable. Old Man Mountain added lashing slots on the top of the deck, and their online Fit Finder tool has thousands of bikes catalogued to make sure you get the right Fit Kit since there’s no standardization in the industry.
