If you’ve been looking for a bike rack that is as flashy as it is functional, or want a LeMond branded bike rack to compliment your new Limited Edition LeMond bicycle, there are two new bike racks you should check out. After meeting during the Everyone Rides event for the Boys & Girls clubs in Florida, LeMond and SeaSucker have partnered up to offer two special LeMond Edition SeaSucker racks.
Emblazoned with the color of the Maillot Jaune and LeMond’s name, other than the finish the racks are no different than the standard SeaSuckers – which is to say that they are easy to install, portable, and hold fast.
If you’re unfamiliar with SeaSucker’s racks, they accomplish what other roof mounted systems do, but with the power of suction cups. Not just any suction cups however, as the racks rely on marine grade vacuum cups which use a small built in pump to remove the air inside. The resulting hold is strong enough to withstand being mounted to the top of a stock car as it cruised around a track. Thanks to the suction cup design, the racks can be quickly installed and removed meaning you only need to keep the rack on when you’re using it, and it’s fairly portable as well.
As part of their partnership with LeMond, SeaSucker has produced two LeMond branded racks with the single bike Talon, and double bike Mini Bomber. Both racks are designed for 9mm QR dropouts, but can run thru axles with the aid of an adapter and include rear wheels straps. Sold for the same price as the standard black SeaSucker Racks, the yellow LeMond versions will sell for $270 for the single, and $400 for the double.
