Riding a hardtail on a bicycle tour requires some problem solving, particularly if your bike doesn’t have rack mounts. Like the Specialized thru-axle we posted yesterday, which uses a Syntace thread pitch, the Rober Axle Project’s Cargo thru-axles solve this problem, yet RAP offers various thread pitches and axle widths. They also make various axles for hauling trailers. Head on over to Robert Axle Project to see more!
The owners of Robert Axle Project have purchased made in the USA rack manufacturer, Old Man Mountain racks, yet the two companies will continue to operate separately from each other. The goal of this acquisition is to provide the highest quality products for cyclists who enjoy riding and touring on their bicycles. Old Man Mountain and Robert Axle Project have worked hand in hand before, by offering racks for full-suspension mountain bikes, relying on custom axles and rack support brackets under their Sherpa line.
