Dirtwork - Sherpa Dropouts 5 inch Dropout Kit (fits legacy OMM racks) (RDO250)


Old Man Mountain was born in 1996 from the need to mount racks on bikes without traditional mounting points and make every bike capable of doing more. Our Fit Kits also have some key benefits over eyelet mounting.

Fit Kits protect your bike. Not all bike eyelets are meant for racks, most are only made for fenders or have very low weight limits. Axle mounting protects your frame.
Need to carry more gear? Axle mounting increases our rack’s load capacity to 70lbs/33kg.
Want to move your rack between multiple bikes? Fit Kits make it easy to swap between bikes or front and rear mounting with just a few bolts.

Pair of 5 inch front drop outs attach the rack frame to the thru axle in your front wheel. The asymmetrical design is specific to allow attachment to Robert Axle thru axles. Includes hook for attaching the lower part of your panniers. These dropouts are for all mountain and fat bikes with:

27.5 inch wheels
27.5 inch Plus wheels
29 inch wheels
29 inch Plus wheels
Fat bike wheels (26 inch or 27.5 inch) with up to 5 inch wide tires.
