    where did the gorilla racks go?

    I've always been curious..... where have the gorilla racks gone? where have they been? I can't remember exactly but I think there are the better part of 20 of them in the wild. Anyone have any cool pics of the places they've been?

    Hey Axel,

    I think that I got one of the last ones that you had left. It is currently mounted on my TW226 6-speed bike along with my second trailer wheel setup. I still love it , but unfortunately I have not been on any epic adventures with it .

    Still the best made and best looking TW rack out there!

    Thanks for asking,

    Brian

    Are you leading up to a second production run? I'd commit to at least two, maybe four... and I promise to take some cool photos!
    Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader!

    Those are some great racks that vanillagorilla made for forum members. I don't have one but I've sure chased others with them through all sorts of gnarly terrain. Saw more than a few happy owners at Moab & the San Rafael Swell. A good design.

    That rear tire looks monstrous! Nice racks for sure.

    Please don't try to make one out of thin wall EMT if you want a durable end result. It will be unnecessarily weak and expose you to potential metal fume fever from the zinc galvanized finish.

    I have one and have posted numerous pictures of me using it. I will dig some fresh ones up and post them here! Your rack is sooooo solid I gave my cyclerack to Mrs. Admiral. Your rack IS THE BEST rack for our awesome TW's. Thank you again!
