There’s lots of different ways to carry your stuff and just as many advocates for each carrying solution. If you happen to run a full suspension bike then your choices have been pretty limited. Many who find themselves in this situation will often be drawn towards using a frame bag, which is a great, as long as the suspension design doesn’t impede too much on the available room within the frame.


Maybe this could be another approach. It’s a Freeload rack and is designed to fit pretty much everything and anything.

Rear rack on a full susser?, no trouble. Want to carry stuff on your suspension forks? it’ll do that too. Don’t have any rack eyelets? it doesn’t matter. I’m told the Freeload will fit pretty much any bike and the same rack can be fitted to the front or the back.





I’ll give it a thorough testing/abusing over the next few weeks and report back … it might just be the solution some have been waiting for, we’ll see!

    Hi there,
    Tim from Freeload here… a dealer in the UK just got in touch with us after seeing your post.
    Just a thought – after seeing the photo's of the rack setup on your bike, can I recommend you use the middle size struts… rather than the short ones you have on there now.
    This will give you better triangulation, and ultimately a stronger rack : ]
    Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions: tim@freeload.co.nz

    Cheers

  2. Hi Tim,
    I hear what you're saying but I did change the struts over for 'field testing'. The picture was my first fit when I was just seeing how it worked … full review coming soon ;o)

BB200 – when the mud settles.

Despite my best efforts, I’m sat here writing this surrounded by the intoxicating aroma of bacon butties. Why do I smell of grilled pork products?
