    Very happy with the quality of the Sherpa Rack, specifically its design, strength and components. Everything just comes together perfectly. The instructions are very clear. The various fasteners are well marked and are referred to in the instructions for exactly where they are to be used. I bought one Sherpa Rack for my wife’s Specialized Stumpjumper and was so impressed that after installing it on her bike, I bought one for my Trek Fuel EX7. The racks turn these mountain bikes into true adventure bikes, making it easy to add panniers, strap additional gear on top of the rack, and then head off for the hills.

    Just fitted the Sherpa to my Haibike Sduro e-bike to make it a true dual purpose bike now and couldn’t be more happy with the result. Great Q&A with OMM prior to purchase and shipped to the UK really quickly. This a quality built rack, secure and stable on the bike. with clear instructions to make the fitting a relatively simple task. Being able to easily remove and refit is a big plus. Now to find an adventure I can do in a lockdown Covid world!

    I’ve been around bicycling for a long time. In the past couple of years, I have “upgraded” to full suspension e-bikes to compensate a bit for increasing age and to continue my level of two-wheeled enjoyment. As part of that upgrade, I wanted to set my full suspension bikes up with front and rear racks for touring or bikepacking. In previous years, I have created my own rack systems which have worked well for front suspension. It always involved a time commitment and lots of tinkering around and trial and error to get it right. This time around, I opted to go with Old Man Mountain.

    I am very impressed with the quality of the racks and fit-kits which OMM offers. After installing them on several different full and front suspension bikes, I am very pleased with the results, and with the quality of parts and installation instructions. Did I mention instillation instructions? The “new” series of video tutorials are wonderful and super easy to follow for fitting racks and fit kits. An aging and forgetful over-the-hill bike mechanic like me is particularly impressed with how well the video tutorials are done. Unlike the printed instructions, which I believe are a bit too brief and use too many unexplained esoteric hardware and part names for the average person to follow easily, the videos easily allow anyone with tool familiarity, or even the desire to expand their familiarity, to do a great installation job.

    Well-done Old Man Mountain! Keep up the great work.

    I received the OMM Classic Sherpa rack. I would just like to say that I am impressed and extremely pleased. It’s very well made, was easy to install and with minimal fuss. OMM provided great communication, and prompt shipping. Thanks again. Dean

    I have owned several OMM racks over the years and mostly used them as a front rack for loaded touring. Front racks are inherently more complicated than rear racks since there are more variables to address as indicated by the sometimes huge bag of hardware you get with other front racks. Once you have the Sherpa set up, it’s easily a 5 minute job to remove or install. You don’t have to worry about fender or disc brake interference. I thought I would try a low rider rack again and immediately regretted it since I was having to relocate my fender stays and although the rack was made for the fork, the holes were not lining up and I was having to make modifications. Anyway, it reminded me why I bought my first OMM rack years ago.

    Not a complaint but my only suggestion would be to offer a lower rail for getting your panniers lower. I would gladly pay bit more if they OMM offered this.

    I received the OMM Sherpa rack a few days ago. I had a hard time finding a rear rack that would work well on a Surly Krampus. Well, I would just like to say that I am impressed and extremely pleased. It’s very well made, and was easy to install with minimal fuss. OMM provided great communication, and prompt shipping. Thanks again.
