Omm Sherpa On A Marin Rift Zone

I recommend this product
ProsEasy to fit,Does what it's supposed to do
I bought this rack so I could carry panniers on my commute in winter when I ride on studded tyres on my full suspension Rift Zone. Easy to fit, and as a bonus I have been able to mount a full length, rigid mudguard to the rack (drilling required) and swingarm with bolts and zip ties. Carefully measure your stays or swingarm before buying the P clips. I ordered 35mm clips on the advice of OMM, and they are just about right when fitted over pieces of old inner tube giving a double thickness of rubber to protect the paintwork. The rack is stable when loaded for commuting, not sure if I'd want a full touring load on it though, given the angle of the mounting stays. If you want a proper rack (and mudguard) on an FS bike this is the way to do it. Recommended.

Omm Sherpa Rear Carrier For Singular Gryphon
30 Aug 2016
Fit this rack for my Singular Gryphon? Dropouts are breezer type and no frame-braze-ons.

Although we have never tried to fit one of these racks to your bike from looking at some images of the design it should hopefully be suitable. You will also need the p-clamps for the upper fittings, these are SJSC part 25558.

Fit To Rear Of Carrera Zelos?
22 Jul 2014
Would I be able to fit this product as a rack for rear panniers for touring on a Carrera zelos road bike? If so would I need any other clips?

many thanks

This rack fits to the quick release skewer at the bottom which would be fine for your bike. The top fitting is designed to fit behind V-brakes/cantilever brakes on the cantilever studs which your bike does not have, to get around this you will need to measure the diameter of your seatstays and buy an appropriate sized pair of p-clips which are SJSC part number 25558.
