So would these racks (Nitto R14 or the Salsa) fit something like them nano bags (Revelate Nano bikepacking bag thingies for example) aswell??

possibly, but they are more suitable for strapping things to the top i think

they don't have much that would support things down the sides

Re: WTD: Salsa Minimalist

I have one, it's pretty much the same thing as the salsa, except for the fact you can actually buy it

Re: Isn't 'Gravel' the same thing people used to moan about?

I think a lot of it depends on where you live, if you have good mountain biking near you, then the best job for mountain biking, is a mountain bike, 20 years of suspension and brake evolution was there for a purpose....
