QuikrStuff came to life in 2020 in Grand Junction, Colorado, the brainchild of Bryan Wachs and JT Westcott. As passionate outdoor enthusiasts, we felt a calling to provide high-quality recreation products that were 100% invented and manufactured in the U.S.
As a startup business, we wanted to make outdoor equipment that you can’t do without. To be part of a rural ecosystem, we support America’s most innovative equipment designers – the daring dreamers in the garages and bedrooms-turned-labs that were making game-changing gear. They just needed help getting it into your hands.
To begin our journey, we licensed the bike rack designs and patents of Cal Phillips. If you’re not familiar with this renown outdoor inventor, he’s the creator of the revolutionary Quik Rack bike carrier, among 33 other patents and designs. That’s a pretty good starting shot for what’s likely to be an ultra-distance race. QuikrStuff’s initial focus is on Cal’s newest design, the Quik Rack Mach2.
What’s next for QuikrStuff? The sky’s the limit. We’re devoted cyclists, hikers, skiers, rafters, and campers. It’s a journey of anticipation and the unknown. Come along for the ride!
Pursuing fulfillment, QuikrStuff delivers high-quality, innovative outdoor recreation products designed, developed, and manufactured in the USA. Breaking the rules and creating a new norm, we provide the components to live your most playful and adventurous life.

Cultivating the next generation of leaders, we offer internships through Colorado Mesa University.
And hey, we love using our products on public lands. After all, they were made for it. In support, we dedicate part of our sales proceeds to the Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association (COPMOBA.) for trail maintenance.
