tubus Tara Front Bike Rackis rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromSolid Racks, Very Quick Install!Installed the rack on a Salsa Fargo 29er w/disc brakes. No optional accessories were needed and install was a snap. The tubes used by Tubus are thicker than other brands so you may need to adjust the connections on your panniers. For example, our Ortlieb panniers required the larger diameter clips and I had to flip the disc-shaped mounting piece around. Once set up, I then covered the rack in electrical tape to prevent scuffing. One thing to keep in mind: The addition of the front rack DOES interfere with some bike racks, such as the Thule T2. Keep a 4mm allen wrench handy and just undo the screws on the rails, loosen the lower screws, and just rotate the rack upwards towards the headtube to accomodate the bike rack's arm.
