Tumbleweed Bicycle Co: Persuader Bar Pre-Order Opens Today

Tumbleweed’s 800mm wide Persuader bars are a great option for your touring bike, with a large, flat area at the stem clamp for bags, zero front sweep to keep those bags nice and neat, 50mm rise, a 30º back sweep, and weighing only 638g. These bars can easily be cut down if 800mm is too wide for your taste but can certainly be ridden uncut.

The pre-order opens today at 10 am PST at Tumbleweed Bicycle Co, with a two-week delivery time.

You Can Now Pre-Order the Tumbleweed T-Rack and Mini Pannier Rack

Mini Pannier rack ($140 rear) and T-Rack ($130 front)

Tumbleweed Bikes’ rack designs have been in high demand since their inception. The T-Rack is a lightweight saddlebag or handlebar bag support, complete with cargo cage attachments on the support legs while the Mini Pannier Rack is inspired by a traditional rear rack but designed to take lightweight and compact panniers. Tumbleweed cannot keep both of these racks in stock, so they’ve opened a pre-order to help ensure everyone can get one this round.

This pre-order will hopefully ship in late March-early April. Head to Tumbleweed to pre-order now.

John’s Titanium Sklar Pack Mule MTB with Tumbleweed Persuader Bars

This bike is the direct result of many experiences, beginning with my 44 Bikes touring bike and culminating with the Moots Baxter I spent a great deal of time on last year both fully-loaded and set up in what I could call expedition mode. After a lot of back and forth, I realized that I like 29+ bikes for bikepacking and yeah, titanium is really nice for desert riding. These mental musings came to the full realization after spending some time talking with Adam from Sklar Bikes this summer in Bozeman.

This is big news! Back in 2017, Tumbleweed Bicycle Co made a trip to Peru. During that Journey, Daniel from Tumbleweed and Cas Gilbert really fell in love with the RatKing Frames T Rack. The hook was set and now Tumbleweed just announced they were taking over production and sales of the RatKing T Rack. Check out the full press-release below, which tells you how you can win one of these racks!
