Intial review of OMM front rack
Well made and strong. Areas of improvment?
Sealing. For each side
1) The lower mounting position tube is bent upwards to ease construction and enhance strength. Unfortunatly the tube ends are open thus inviting water, dirt and mud to enter.
2) The main tube has a breathing hole on the lower side.
All thse locations should be sealed, I used Silastic RTV732.
Extra Long Skewer.
On my installation! If the mounting were 9mm shorter over all then a 'standard' rear (135mm) Skewer could be used. My dropouts are 7.4mm thick (each one), the fork tubes are 38mm diameter. I see no problem (for my installation) in reducing each OMM Skewer mount adaptor by 4.5mm so that I have a 'common' Skewer. YMMV.

Consa bit pricy but you get what you pay for
Prossturdy, comprehensive fitting options
The construction is as solid as a rock. One thing though, check the size of your dropouts and axle before you buy: the extended QR is 4.5mm wide and not much cop if your's is bigger (shouldn't be a problem for 99.9% of buyers). That said the couplings have plenty of meat on them and they are easy to drill out to fit a larger skewer.

As for fitting, everything is well explained and all the bits are in nice tidy baggies. Once on they feel as solid as rock and look as though they'll last longer than the rest of the bike.

ProsBuild, good instructions, would fit wide range of bikes
I agree with the comments given in the other reviews this is a strong, wellconstructed rack, which was easy to fit to my carbon forked bike. I've tried it on a few shorter rides with Ortlieb classic panniers and it seems fine so far. The rack's design makes it versatile, in that it could be made to fit a wide range of bikes. There is a choice of holes to fit to the bike at the base, and it has an adjustable fixing plate at the top where it meets the brake assembly. Mine came with all of the bolts and nuts thankfully. The instructions are excellent. If I can fit this rack first time, error free, then anyone can! My only gripe is the high price, but having seen the build quality I suppose it's just about worth it.
Solid And Reliable Rack

ProsRobust, fits forks without eyelets
I searched high and low for a robust rack which would fit on my rigid mountain bike forks (which don’t have eyelets). Once fitted this rack is very sturdy and robust and works a treat. It’s a little pricey but then I hear that Old Man Mountain’s customer service is legendary so it should last an age.

My only gripe is that there were 2 too few bolts/nuts in the packaging, although this was easy enough to solve after a trip to B&Q but it did delay me using the rack by a week.
Seems Strong

ProsStrong, axel supportted
This was easy to fit and seems a great deal stronger than other front racks I looked at. fitting was easy on a suspension fork, although it was two nuts short, but these were easy to get from a local hardware store.

I have not used the rack in anger yet, but the rides I have done it performs well.

Eylet Mounts
10 Oct 2016
I have seen it mounted to the eylets with hardware from OMM se link below. Can you provide this mount? Http://Www.Oldmanmountain.Com/Product/1502A.Html

Old Man Mountains UK distributor only bring in the whole racks so don't offer the fitting kits separately and this is the only version of the low rider they stock unfortunately.

Old Man Mountain Ultimate Lowrider Compatible Wiht Disc Trucker 26''
04 Oct 2016
Is Old Man Mountain Ultimate Lowrider Compatible with Disc Trucker 26'' and is it possible to mount it all in the braseons on the fork and not on the wheel axle?
Kind Regards/Johan

The Old Man Mountain Lowrider should be compatible with the Surly Disc Trucker fork, but as this rack is designed to use the skewer and brake bosses to fit it is unlikely you will be able to attach it to forks low rider bosses. As this fork does not have brake bosses wither you would most likely need to use the p-clip option for the upper fitting.
