Old Man Mountain Basket, Ponderosa Panniers, and Juniper Trunk in Stock and Shipping Today
The three coolest products we’ve saw at Sea Otter 2022 (yes, it’s been that long) are now in stock and shipping today from Old Man Mountain. The Ponderosa Panniers ($200) are 100% water proof, 13L capacity per bag, and are completely rattle free. The Juniper Trunk ($125) is a modern take on a rack trunk bag. Sunshine or rain, your gear will stay dry and protected in this 100% waterproof TPU fabric trunk with welded seams and Hypalon reinforcements.
While we love bags, we’re most stoked on the Basket ($80). OMM built this basket to bolt directly to its racks for a stable and rattle-free ride. The basket pattern is Molle compatible so you can attach your favorite accessory pouches. Are you into basket bags? The Basket is compatible with all “137” basket bags.

John’s been using the size large Moosepacks on various review bikes over the past year and that says something. When carrying all yer stuff in a hip bag is great for a MTB, sometimes it’s nice to free up your body for a gravel or road bike. That’s what’s great about these mini framebags by Moosepacks. They fit all your essentials and more.
Roll on over to Moosepacks to see all the color options!
If you’re about ready to dust off your fatbike, or perhaps you’re swapping out the 29+ wheels for your winter wheels, and have been wanting to lace up some new bling, Industry Nine just brought back its fatbike hubs in front, 170mm, and 190mm rear hubs.
Check out the specs and offerings at Industry Nine.
The Temple Road makes for the perfect 4-season companion for those who love clocking up miles and enjoying the journey, with a reliable and elegant bicycle that is a pleasure to ride. Featuring a made in Taiwan Reynolds 853 steel frame and fork for a durable yet lightweight feel, the Temple Road is Di2 and mechanical groupset ready, and offers other modern touches in the form of disc brake and internal routing. Classic details found on the traditional clubman’s bicycle are reflected in details like the lugged forks and curved brake bridge, with plenty of mounting points for racks and mudguards.
We can’t get over how good these bikes look in all their colors. Roll on over to Temple Cycles (who ships worldwide from its Bristol-based shop) to see additional photos, paint options, build options, and more!
