The Backbone is designed to fit universally on bikes. So, instructions are the same for all bikes. Also, no extra tools are even needed!


Like assembly, disassembly is the same for all bikes. Since this bike has a smaller seat post it uses a 1/16″ rubber pad that is provided with every Backbone.

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.

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″ – 1.22″). 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. 

  • Patent-pending original design. 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.
  • Designed to be user-friendly. 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.


Convenience. Easily hop on and off your bike with your stuff already on you without fidgeting with or carrying clunky pannier bags.

Comfort. Don’t worry about back, butt, or wrist pain; the Backbone helps you with the weight.

Safeguard. Leaving your bike unattended? Don’t leave your luggage behind too! With the Backbone set-up, your luggage by default goes where you go.

Time saver. No extra time or effort is needed to dismount your luggage; it’s already on you!

Level-up. With the Backbone, your luggage is centered behind you so you can bike faster and further with less wind resistance.

Simplicity. One great product that works with every backpack and most bikes.

Easy Set-up. Mount the Backbone easily on your seat post and position the platform wherever you want.

Durability. Rugged but sleek, the Backbone is designed to last for years to come.

Heavy-load Capacity. The Backbone can support as much as 45lbs!
