What are my mounting options?
An Axle including Quick Release Dropouts allows you to swap out your current axle for a Tailfin axle to mount the tailfin rack.
Frame mounting allows you to mount directly to the frame using screws.
Which Axle do I need?
If you need help figuring out which axle type to use, please use our guide posted here as a reference.
Most Bikes Use a Quick-release Axle (Pictured above-right)
Use the guide below ONLY if your bike uses a Thru-Axle. If you’re unsure – see above.

Light and stylish design that does its job with style
I own a carbon-framed Cannondale Topstone gravel bike. Every bike store in Melbourne that I went to said it was impossible to fit a pannier rack system to my frame… not so! Enter, the Tailfin, an elegant, easy-to-use rack that fits neatly onto my frame. I can now use my bike as a speedy commuter, or take it out on weekends for bike-packing. Remember, quality remains long after the price is forgotten. Do yourself a favour and buy a Tailfin.
Love the versatility. During the winter I'm using the frame mounts while commuting. During the summer the quick release will be great when I want to go for an actual ride on a day off. Most of the time I use a dry pack mounted to the top of the rack for commuting. Only wish there was a way to mount your own bag to the side of the rack out of the box. You have to rig up your own way to attach your own bag for now. Even with that I give it 5 starts. It's holding up great. It's light and mounted in a way you never notice it. It's holding up great through the winter months.
