Outdoor gear and apparel company, Trxstle (pronounced “trestle”) has an interesting way for any bike to carry what you want. Introducing the Geryon Bike Rack System. The Geryon is a universal rack system that is designed to work with the fork steerer and seatpost as mounting points. This allows the Geryon to be used with just about any style of bike you might have in your quiver.

Judging by the photos, this rack can be used for anything like bikepacking, fishing, hunting, or just running errands. Looks like you could even find a way to affix some front and rear panniers and do some touring.

The Geryon has adjustable angles and positions to accommodate your bike and gear “like no other rack on the market”, Trxstle says.

The Geryon, Trxstle says, is designed to not hamper your steering like a handlebar bag might. Instead, it puts that weight on the bike’s frame, where they say it belongs.

Furthermore, Trxstle claims that the adjustable rack won’t block your dropper post’s travel like they say a seat pack could.

In addition, the Geryon looks like it’s designed to use any stuff sack or dry bag you already have and strap it right to the rack, alleviating the need to buy hyper-specific bikepacking bags.

This would essentially allow the user to turn any bike into a bikepacking rig… including full-suspension bikes, and carbon-framed gravel bikes without proper adventure nipples.

What’s more, it’s fully modular allowing you to really pick and choose how to configure it to fit your needs.

As you would expect, you can add the optional Utility Deck to carry bigger items like hunting tools or other bulky items, Kolpin Rhino Grip XL, Cinch and Utility straps, and even a BWC Fly Box. The Geryon will also accommodate all future accessories from Trxstle.

Good. I needed an extra top tube and less standover.

I especially appreciate using the extra top tube to attach a shovel to give you that classic Triple Top Tube Technology, or Triple T Tech.

The shovel also acts as a great mudguard. Profit!

You could get an extra frame bag!

I’d say it looks like a fantastic new way to crack your frame if the whole construction didn’t look so much like one of those flimsy clip-on mudguards.
