Sure, a few pointers include:

  • Where possible, use the frame upper eyelet mounts to attach the extenders. Our pucks and seatpost clamp are great alternatives but if your frame or fork provide upper mounts, by all means use them.
  • However, we prefer to mount OMM racks to thru axles rather than lower fender or rack eyelets. Our axles and Fit Kits interlock to provide physical support for the rack, mounted on our 10mm, stainless steel axle ends. A lower, 5mm eyelet bolt is weak because it is in what engineers call “Sheer” and does not take full advantage of our design.
  • Extenders may need to be bent. Sometimes the width of our racks and the mounting points on your particular frame will require bending the Extenders to get the best fit. Don’t hesitate to do this.
