Smooth transaction

First time using Campfire Cycling. I randomly found them while searching for a product. I don't have anything to say other than I was quite happy with the purchase experience all around. Fair price, prompt delivery!

Nice Rack!

I am thankful for Campfire Cycling’s product selection, good website, swift sales process, and quick turnaround. The rack is an excellent addition to my Pivot LES Fat and worked perfectly on my 75 mile overnight in late November. Salsa Alternator Rear Rack Review

Easy Install & great fit

I installed this rack on a 2019 carbon mukluk (size L) frame. The instructions were easy to follow and installation was simple. I was a little uneasy about needing to remove the dropout bolts and replace with some of the provided bolts and spacers for the rack but it was really simple and only took about 10 minutes to figure it out. I kept the original drop out bolts in a labelled bag in case I ever want to remove the rack. It was a perfect fit with plenty of tire clearance. I'm running 3.8" Maxxis FBR tires on 27.5 wheels. Took it on trip with Ortlieb Gravel Panniers on the rack and it performed great! Rock solid - exactly what I was looking for. Salsa Alternator Rear Rack Review
