SimWorks has been busy dreaming up and releasing new products lately, with two today and more on the way soon. The new SimWorks Burrito Rack is a Japanese-made rear bag support with a highly adaptable design, and the matching RAL Extra Rice & Beans Bag is a compact roll-top bag built to fit it. Both are available now, and you can find details here…
Made of tubular chromoly steel by Nitto in Japan, the new SimWorks Burrito Rack is a compact rear bag support that can fit a wide range of bikes. It attaches securely to the seatpost and both seat stays using adjustable struts that can be eyelet-mounted or connected with included clamps. The Burrito Rack can serve as a support for a larger Carradice-style bag attached to your saddle or as a standalone rack for a smaller bag or drysack lashed directly to the rack using Voile straps or cords anchored to the studs on the underside of the rack.
Nitto produced the $200 Burrito Rack in chrome or black-plated options, and both weigh in at 410 grams and have a load capacity of 10 kilograms (22 pounds). The struts are made from aluminum, and the hardware is stainless. SimWorks recommends a minimum clearance of 12 centimeters (4.7 inches) between the top of the rear tire and the seatpost clamp position. It’ll fit seatposts between 26.8 and 27.2mm, though with a little ingenuity and longer hardware, you may be able to get it to fit larger posts.

Alongside the Burrito Rack, SimWorks commissioned Cody Forsythe of Jack Supply in Portland to make a matching compact roll-top bag. Available in limited quantities, the RAL Extra Rice & Beans Bag is offered in five unique color and material combinations, and it features premium Fidlock magnetic closure hardware, a roll-top design, a padded base with reinforced lower walls, a purpose-built webbing attachment system, D-rings for connecting a shoulder strap, dual daisy chains on the bottom, and a reflective chevron design for a little added visibility.
Describing its ideal use case, SimWorks wrote, “Load it up with a grip of burritos and refreshments for you and a couple buds and head out to your favorite hilltop clearing or beach break to unwind. Leave the backpack at home.” The $120 RAL Extra Rice & Beans Bag looks like a great handmade option for city cruises and coffee rides, though its small size limits its utility for bikepacking.
