    Ski/Snowboard racks for Fat bike

    Been sniffing around the interwebs and not having much luck with finding a rack that can hold a board/skiis on the fatty. Looking for alternative transportation options this winter.

    I've seen surfboard racks for beach cruisers, but nada for fat bikes. Perhaps I need more coffee.

    Iím not sure about a snowboard , but Iíve seen people with skis carry them A-frame style either on a back pack or the rear rack. Or strapped along the top tube running front to back. Voile straps would seem to be critical if one were strapping it to the bike somehow. If you had skis and a rear rack you may be able to fabricate something out of PVC piping , kinda like vertical fishing rod holders.

    I'm so sure of anything really being robust to carry a board or skis on the bike. I do carry a board on a hiking back and that may work. There are some really good board carrying backpacks from companies that make them for hunters.

    There are some off the shelf options for carrying guns or bows, in the vertical orientation, on a rear rack. You might poke around those threads to see what's out there.

    Not what you're looking for, but an option: Backpack for skis and snowboards.

    Saying that you "hate" or are an "unapologetic critic" of a bike company doesn't make you insightful or interesting.

    Rigging up a vertical carrier is not too hard and there are any number of manufactured solutions for hunting and fishing that could be adapted. A few that come to mind are:

    Co (now out of business )

    The Rambo R170 carrier is similar to the Cogburn, but seems to be out of stock everywhere as well.
