In addition to the Ponderosa Panniers and Juniper Trunk we share earlier this morning (linked in related grid below), Old Man Mountain released three other products at the 2023 Sea Otter Classic. These include the new Old Man Mountain Pizza Rack, an aluminum basket to go along with it, and their take on a bolt-on light mount. Find details on each below.
Old Man Mountain Pizza Rack
The Old Man Mountain Pizza Rack is their take on a classic rack and is made to carry a basket, a Caradice-style long-flap top-opening bag, a porteur bag, or, of course, a pizza.

The solid center deck provides additional tie-down points, keeps gear off of the front tire, and doubles as a fender.
