The Tubus Tara is one of the strongest low-rider racks made. The stabilizing loop that crosses over the tire adds strength and rigidity to the system. The low-rider mounting system keeps your load's center of gravity down, improving your bike's handling. This is one of the best choices for long self-supported bicycle touring. 33 lb load capacity. Fits most bikes with 26 and 700C wheels. Black.
This is my second Tubus Tara rack. I have them installed on my Surly LHT and now on a Specialized sequoia; on both 26" and 700c wheel sets. This setup allows me to quickly mount my Ortlieb bags on either bicycle depending on the trails I will be riding. The mounting is secure and allows the bags to remain very low to the ground which is great for handling with just front panniers. The build quality is excellent.

Found these to be slightly heavier that some, but never failed to give full support
