Our hiking trip to Devils Nose WV was rescheduled until the 17th due to Mike’s flu. My son suggested that we take our Four Wheelers so decided to let Sean use my four wheeler and I would convert Ruth 2006 from a high geared 45 tooth to a low geared 65 tooth setup. I removed my everyday rack Dryden gave me and installed my Cycle Rack I’m going to needed the larger rack so I can haul my gear to the camp site.
It all started when Mike found a new area that he wanted to camp at that is deeper into the woods. It’s farther in and we would have to hike over the mountain.
If anyone is interested please join us.

I mainly bought my TW in case the SHTF and camping. I’ve owned it fours now and I’m finally getting the chance to pull it off. Hopefully we don’t get a big snowstorm. :D

How badass does this sprocket look? :D. To save money I had bought a stock DID chain just to use for this setup. After removing my HD DID o Ring chain I noticed the difference in overall size. It’s no wonder that the stock chains stretch so bad, it’s significantly smaller in diameter. I should have taken a side by side picture.

Up front I have extra gas, air pump and a bottle of Fix-a-Flat.

I have a question for someone who has used these Versa Packs. Will this work without the side racks? I have this Dryspec heat shield which I’m hoping will protect the bag.

Nice Rick. The heat shield may work fine, but you don't want the bags swinging into the wheel well... I'd try testing them before heading out...

Is that DrySpec shield to protect bags from muffler heat ?? Good Idea, I had not seen before but resolves a problem I was fore seeing.
Yes I bought it to protect the bag after another member on this forum burnt his bag up

Top, I bent up a "U" shape of wire shelving to support my VersaPacs. Bags are zip-tied to wire frame and then whole assembly simply slips over Cyclerack. In camp assembly can be lifted off bike and placed anywhere convenient and level. A mighty $8 so for a 6 foot piece from Home Depot and an hour of so of cutting and fitting might work for you. white-closetmaid-shelves-shelf-brackets-4717-64_1000.jpg

Cheap and not bomb proof but still work OK. I made two, one big set for camp, one small for day rides. They are a bit worn but are otherwise holding up.


If one unclips the top bag then the wire framework makes a small table. Odd cut-outs on wire are to clear my RotoPak mount. Wire frame can be pulled back out of way if after some bouncing around bags come close to tire. Assemblies are either tied, strapped, or zip tied to CycleCrack.

Maybe viewing fault is on my end. Odd.
Sometimes using the edit function and re-posting the photos works.
So, what am I missing?:D
