Made using Easton Scandium, the rugged Outpost Rear rack is one of the lightest of its kind. The weight savings does not mean that you sacrifice ease of installation, fit or the stability that is gained from low rider mounting.
  • Easton Scandium and aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum tubing
  • Blackburn Fit System ? mounts perfectly with 26?, 700c or 29? wheels, disc compatible and will work with most brake or frame mounts
  • Narrow profile keeps pannier weight close to center for better balance
  • Low and high pannier mounts
  • Light & reflector mounting loop

    strong, sturdy rack but installation requires some serious elbow grease

    The swivel mounting hardware accommodated my c.1988 model mountain bike very well. I was able to anchor the top of the cage to my rear brake bosses. HOWEVER, installation was tough/challenging/frustrating for two reasons: 1) The item image on the GearCoop site infers a black anodized coating. Mine came with a gold paint layer that made the tube diameter too thick. This unusual thickness combined with the tight machining tolerance of the cross-tube anchor (a cylindrical machined piece of aluminum that is part of the mounting hardware), made things not fit. Aluminum shaft diameter too big. I could not use it. In parts of the shafts, had to file off the thick gold paint layer. It was a mess, but in the end - got it to work. I have used other Blackburn racks with same mounting system, but they had black anodization, and the cross-tube anchors fit/worked just fine. 2) The cage is strong and very stiff, so make sure you check spacing between lower anchor points and your bicycle frame. I had to do some modifications to accommodate the spacing. [Blackburn], in the future, please provide technical drawings betterdetailing spacing and dimensions. The drawing at https://www.blackburndesign.com/p/outpost-world-touring-rear-bike-rack/ does not tell you spacing between bottom anchor points, or explain how the trapezoidal nature of the rack will make top and bottom widths different.

    We won't do anything without asking your permission first. These are your images, we just hope they can help future outdoor enthusiasts find the gear they need.
