    seat stays you ve got three options Attach to rack braze ons the method I used for the rear rack Attach to cantilever brake posts the method I used for the front rack Attach to frame via included P clamps The bars used to attach to the frame posts clamps have little rounded eyes that accommodate the angles that may be needed to get a good solid connection without bending the rack or mounting hardware The rear rack is rated for 55lbs and seems plenty stout Here you can see it with the Central rear pannier that they sent along as well I ll break down the features of the pannier in another post The rear rack sports a mount to attach a reflector or rear light The front rack has a removable top rack platform features high and low pannier mounts and sports the same design and customization options of the rear rack I really liked the adjustability and I can see that you ll get a clean install as a finished product with whatever bike you may choose Now that I have everything installed and cut to fit I ll take it off and get a weight on the rack The Outpost Rear rack retails for 125 with the Outpost Front retailing for 100 See more from Blackburn HERE I ve got a couple more things to put together on the bike and then I ll get it out for a ride and let you know how the rest of the stuff works out Tags blackburn outpost pannier rack touring Ryan Living in and loving Alaska A passion for human powered transportation Beer drinker Hell raiser Two wheels one love Comments 2 J November 10 2014 at 3 23 PM Hi I can t seem to find the

    in the 135mm spacing for the front A 29er wheelset for the summer Likely the Surly Rabbit Hole rims Jeff Jones H bars A Gates belt drive I ve had mixed feelings on my Gates system on my SSCX bike but for a beach tour I think it d be the best way to go Single speed The grit and salt can wreck havoc on a chain drive Derailleurs and all that just take it off It s all the same grade you don t need gears A great option to have and one of the reasons I went with the rocker dropouts A packraft Because that is the next step Interbike confirmed that things in the fatbike world were as most of America getting fatter Of course there s a way to lighten the load without dieting carbon The carbon steeds at Interbike were under 29lbs complete with 4 8 tires If that s your thing then you can look towards the folks working in that medium There is the the Fatback Corvus the 9 Zero 7 Whiteout and the Borealis Yampa to name a few Though I do like carbon I wanted a bike that could be thrown around a bit I see the carbon option for the racers more than the adventure tour types So get out there and ride your bike Continue Reading Buca Boot The Bike Trunk Written by Tall Bryan on November 16 2013 Posted in Accessories Commuting 1 Comment The Buca Boot is a basket that doubles as a lockable trunk for your bike The Buca Boot is waterproof when closed lockable and attaches to your existing bike rack from the inside making it as secure as your bike or rather your lock job When opened the top panels swing to the sides and reveal fabric pannier style side pouches When open you can carry larger or fragile items in the hard case with additional cargo on the sides It looks like a pretty slick design offering equal parts utility and style The kickstarter is already fully funded but you can still pre order your own with a wood top for 195 or a plastic top for 145 Seems like a perfect sort of product for Seattle based Hub and Bespoke to carry Continue Reading First Glance ABUS Granit X Plus U 54 Mini Written by Tall Bryan on November 12 2013 Posted in Commuting Gear No Comments ABUS isn t new to the lock security game they ve been in business since 1924 but as of late they ve really been pushing their bike locks and bike specific products to the North American market They were also a major sponsor of this years NACCC which was held in Seattle back in July I ve been using the same Kryptonite Evolution Mini U Lock for the last 5 years so when ABUS sent over their new Granit X Plus U 54 Mini I was excited to try it out Here is what ABUS has to say about it The Granit X Plus U 54 Mini this lock is the highest level of security we offer in a bicycle U Lock but featuring a shorter shackle The lock retains the wide profile of its full size siblings in the Granit X Plus U lock family which makes it ideal for cities that have reinforced parking meters available for bike parking and where high security is needed The best part is that because of the shorter profile it s more affordable 109 99 retail Check out the full line of ABUS bike locks HERE My First Lock Up The Granit X Plus 54 U Mini has almost the same length shackle as my old lock but it is wider appears more sturdy and is slightly heavier in the hand The lock body is a little bulky with a plastic cover but the locking action and turning motion of the key is remarkably smooth The automatic keyhole cover is pretty slick too I ll be reporting back with a full review after some daily miles and lock ups stay tuned Continue Reading Alaska Trip Part 2 Cordova No Road Written by Tall Bryan on November 2 2013 Posted in Alaska bikes Photography Travel No Comments After a few days of exploring Anchorage by bike during the day and the inside of Anchorage bars by night we were ready to leave the city A 300 mile road trip an improvised campsite and a high powered catamaran ride later we were standing in front of Ryan on his Raleigh Port Townsend at the ferry dock in Cordova AK Welcome to Cordova exclaimed Ryan unstrapping some beers from his porteur rack and offering them up We re the first house on the left Breath taking views in every direction mountains rising up out of the sound nothing but green trees blue waters and a postage stamp sized town This is the Alaska I was looking for For the next six days and five nights we explored Cordova by bike by foot and by bottle We road out the road and the other road yeah there is two of them as well as some scenic trails One of the highlights was riding Saddlebag Glacier trail It winds through the woods along a creek that has cut out a valley the terrain changing several times before spitting us out on the shore of Saddlebag Lake Continue Reading Alaska Trip Part 1 Anchorage Off The Chain Written by Tall Bryan on October 30 2013 Posted in Alaska bikes Photography Travel No Comments It was an early flight into Anchorage so by 10 30am we had already managed to walk through the woods and across town We did stop for coffee in a city that has more espresso stands per capita than anywhere else in the US but by now we were seated at a questionable but genuine bar beers in hand In the brief moments between being bombarded or befriended by the
