    Rear Rack suggestion for Farley 5?

    Looking for suggestion for rack that takes advantage of the braze ons for the Farley. All I see are racks that are for 26" bikes nothing 27.5" 2019 Farley specific on the trek site that I can see either

    "Old man mountain" racks work but I would have to look up what hardware kit i bought. They are bomproof but heavy.

    A more modern sensible approach may be the tumbleweed T rack.

    Surly Nice rear rack should do you fine with those braze-on's. Nice, powdercoated steel rack with stainless rack stays. I utilize two of these rear racks for my Specialized Fatboy, for both front and rear.

    Old Man Mountain was bought out by The Robert Axle Project and they are currently reorganizing that aspect of their business as of this post.

    Tubus Fat Bike Rack was the only thing I could find that would clear the big J5 tires. It is rock solid.

    I put a Blackburn Outpost on my 7. I had a post about it but can't find it.

    I had to modify it but it's super solid.Rear Rack suggestion for Farley 5?-rack.jpg

    Basically I had to fip the top of the rack around and cut off the plate that hangs down to hold a tail light etc. I can't remember what the heck the other things I did. Maybe it will come to me.

    Here are some more close up pictures of my Salsa Alternator rack. The tyre is the Bontrager Barbegazi 4.7 , there is plenty of space left for a wider/bigger tyre.
