From the designer of the ingenious T-Rack, which is now sold by Tumbleweed, the new RIP Rack from Seattle-based RatKing Frames (@ratkingframes) is purpose-built to support Wald 137 and 139 baskets. It features a clever zip tie-free attachment system built from custom-machined hardware and a platform that’s sized just right to make it super versatile with or without a basket on top.
The RatKing RIP Rack is a breeze to install, requiring just a couple of Allen wrenches—no nuts or hose clamps to fiddle with. It’s designed to secure to mid-fork eyelets and the fork crown, and all mounting hardware is included. For now, it uses Salsa universal rackhardware with 8x370mm struts, but the next phase of production will also bring the hardware design and manufacturing in-house. The Rip Rack measures 8″ long by 8.25″ wide, has a height of 5.25″, and weighs in at 580g with uncut struts.
There’s a pre-order batch of Seattle-made RIP Racks available now at a discounted price of $205 (full retail will be $225), and they’re scheduled to ship in mid-July. In addition to the standard black version, you can also order a RIP Rack in your choice of a custom single-color powder coat for $280 (full retail will be $300).
