I want to put pannier racks on my mountain bike and have been going through old threads in this forum to find out more about them. The Old Man Mountain brand is recommended by many, but they would put a serious dent in my budget. Are they really that much better than the rest? What is so good about them? Are they stronger? I understand they have an innovative design that allows them to be used with disk brakes and suspension, but my bike has neither, so I should have no problem mounting a cheaper brand.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
