Feel the support with our patent-pending Backbone! The Backbone is a patent-pending product and tested to support a backpack that weighs as much as 45lbs (22kg).
So, you don't need to worry about how much you're carrying; the Backbone does the heavy lifting. It features a user-friendly and durable design and makes riding with luggage more convenient. Invented while our founder was on a 10-month Pan-American tour.
The Backbone fits most bikes. It attaches to the seat post and is installed without any extra tools nor do you need to remove your seat post. You just need to make sure you have 3.5 inches of extra seat post space for the Backbone to attach and that your seat post is between 25.25mm - 30.9mm 0.994? Also, your seat post should be of sufficient quality so it can bear the extra load. The Backbone has been tested on high-quality seat posts made from carbon fiber, aluminum, and titanium.
It can be found nowhere else. Engineered with useful features that increase rigidity and durability. For example, not 1 but 2 cam-handles keep the Backbone securely on your bike, while not 1 but 2 thumb knobs make sure the vertical bar stays on the horizontal bar.
No extra tools are needed. A 5mm Alan key is provided to adjust the angle of the platform. If you want, you may mount the Alan key under the platform with the self-adhesive mounting brackets that are provided. Increase visibility and safety in the dark with the reflective decal. While using the Backbone your backpack should rest squarely on the Backbone platform behind you.
Adjust the straps of your backpack so they hover over your shoulders. You'll notice how much weight the Backbone supports when you dismount your bike.The Backbone is adjustable forward and backward, up and down, and the platform can rotate too, so, it optimally fits you, your backpack, and your bike. Easily hop on and off your bike with your stuff already on you without fidgeting with or carrying clunky pannier bags. Don't worry about back, butt, or wrist pain; the Backbone helps you with the weight. Don't leave your luggage behind too! With the Backbone set-up, your luggage by default goes where you go. No extra time or effort is needed to dismount your luggage; it's already on you! With the Backbone, your luggage is centered behind you so you can bike faster and further with less wind resistance. One great product that works with every backpack and most bikes. Mount the Backbone easily on your seat post and position the platform wherever you want. Rugged but sleek, the Backbone is designed to last for years to come. The Backbone can support as much as 45lbs! Our products come with a lifetime of support.

Use at your own risk. While on an epic minimalistic trip bound for Argentina from the Chicago area our founder, Adam, invented and used the Backbone for the very first time.
He started his journey with just his road bike and 44L hiking backpack, making it across the Mexican border, biking southward, and into Guatemala. It was there when he finally produced the very first Backbone that would assist him in eventually making it to the Darien Gap, a place in southern Panama where the Pan-American Highway and all other roads come to an end. He thought, "since this item helped me so much, I think it could help others too". To his surprise, a product that supports a backpack while riding a bike was not on the market. So, he decided to bring it to the market so you and people like us could also benefit from the Backbone too!
We continue to improve and expand our product line and we greatly appreciate your early support! The 4 places that made the Backbone what it is. While on the Pan-American highway in 2020 the founder made the first Backbone in Guatemala, after going through the USA and Mexico without backpack support.
From there, now with the Backbone, he arrived in Yaviza, Panama 6 months later. We do our best to give you the best possible product and service.
