Cold Mountain front racks?
« on: January 15, 2006, 11:35:06 am »
I'm also looking at the Old Mountain front racks - the "Cold Springs" and the "Sherpa". Anyone use these and have anything good/bad to say about them? I like the way they attach to the bike, it looks like it would be less strain on the handling than the Tubus Swing - but having never seen either I figured I'd ask here. I don't want to carry a lot of weight up front, just enough to offset some of the lightness in steering I get with a loaded BOB trailer.

Thanks...rich cower, sandpoint, id.

I use the OMM Low Rider for both my mountain and road bikes.  OMM has an attachment that puts a top shelf on the low rider.  I cant say enough good things about their racks and the owner.

I've used the OMM Sherpa racks front and rear on horrible unpaved roads and had great results. They are built like a tank and clear the disk brake calipers. The only issues was getting the skewers in and out when I had flats. Their extra long skewers go through the racks and wheels. The Old Man Mountain company is good to do business with.  
Since then I bought the OMM front Ultimate Low Rider rack for my next trip to use with my Burley Nomad trailer instead of the rear rack.
