Back Country Research Mutherload Frame Mount 1 Inch Strap
The Mutherload is the perfect solution for Trail, All Mountain and Enduro riders that want a simple, secure way to carry their spares without having an irritating saddle bag.
It's a simply genius design that uses 2x shockcords to hold onto your spares while a one inch thick strap locks it onto the frame. It'll fit any frame with a circumference as small as 4 inches (steel frame) up to a huge 9 inch circumference monster.
Hand made in Montana, USA from the very best of materials. The shock cords stress points use heavy duty bartacks to ensure your goods aren't going anywhere and nor will they damage your frame. The Mutherload is hand sewn with #92 industrial UV and rot resistant bonded polyester thread. Need to give it a clean up? No problems, just hose it off or chuck it in the wash.
It'll fit a standard tube + levers + multi tool + levers and a mini pump or 2 x Co2's. Or any combination suits you!
To load your goods in, simply line up your tube in the centre of the grip strip, pul the dual shock cords up and over the tube and that'll lock your tube in. Flip the Mutherload over and slide in your choice of inflating device, multi tools and levers. To mount it up to your bike: Place it where you'd like it to sit on your frame with the tube and shockcoreds facing the frame, then just feed the slack end through the contoured loop and reef it tight! The intuitive design is super quick and easy to install and ensures your buddies aren't waiting too long while your trying to reuse old sticky tape!
Our favourite part about the Mutherload is that since all the goods are pulled down tight, there is no rattling about! Nice and quiet!
The one inch wide strap will easily fit into any tight spaces. It'll mount just about any where on your bike and is guarateed not to spin around your chosen tube.
Finally you can thow that attrocious duct tape that's stinking up your bike in the bin and get a proper solution!

Get one, you won't be disappointed 👍
Reliable strap to stash some gear
This strap has been great for transferring a tube and CO2 canisters between bikes. I have combined it with a oneup edc tool. So I keep the tube and canisters strapped into the motherload strap and depending on which bike I'm riding, I just transfer the strap with tube and canisters as well as the tool between bikes. It takes virtually no time at all and means I don't need to carry those items on my person - so no pack especially for short rides. The strap hasn't slipped and doesn't mark up the frame. I keep the tube inside an old sock to keep it protected and clean.
Holds more stuff than fits in my frame triangle.
Everything is held securely, nothing has fallen out yet.
Enough strap to go around the chunkiest down tubes (probably twice).
The Mutherload Is The Bomb
by Teal W. -
Way more than just a velcro strap. The built in elastic cord holds everything in when you want to go full enduro. I keep a tube, multitool and C02 in the strap comfortably. The strap is heavy duty, looks good and isn't going anywhere. I ride my fair share of black diamond trails and have taken a decent dirt nap with the Mutherload on board. The strap and the tools inside haven't budged at all. Great product.
A really nice reusable strap
by Mr.CouchPotato -
Works well - so much better than using electrical tape around the tube. Doesn't leave any marks too. Pros: Holds heaps of stuff. I usually strap a tube, 2x35g Co2 cannisters & a tyre lever. Secure - hasn't fallen off Cons: Doesn't really work well with narrow tubes. Gotta pull it tight or pack it with stuff so that it holds.
Good but not for your average dia steel tubes
by Peter Elkington -
Just a quick one - this is a good product but not great if you have a steel framed bike with regular size steel frame diameter tubes. I have to double wrap the velcro to make it work which is a bit untidy. Other than that it's good but I wouldn't buy them again for my bike (Kona Unit)
