Tubus Tara Lowrider Front Rack


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 or Silver.

I am so impressed by the strength of this Tara rack. I put over 40 lbs. of keg on one side and the 45 lb. CO2 tank on the other side for a picnic. The rack and panniers held up going across town and back! It has been on rough trails with full size ortliebs, no worries.

Excellent Choice!!

I couldn't be happier with this rack - it carries the load when needed and is very unobtrusive the rest of the time!

Tubus Tara


Reviewed By: Douglas C Fawkes on 4/21/21

I installed the Tubus Tare on my Waterford Adventure Touring bicycle. (2000 vintage!) The installation was very solid and their was no flex. I took it out for a test ride and it had a solid feel. I look forward to using these to carry my low rider panniers. I put a magnet over the rack and it is steel through and through. Good for repair. The Tara rack is extremely sturdy build.

I have been shopping for a pannier rack for my Specialized Diverge bike for a couple months. I had trouble getting holes and ports getting aligned. The Tubus Tera Rack was simple to attach securely to my bike and my Ortlieb bags fit well on the racks. I am confident in the product because of the stiff and sturdy fit on the bike.

Nice Rack, Not so Good Finish


Reviewed By: Donald Bybee on 3/22/18

I installed this rack on a Disc Trucker. It was quite the job to get it installed so that the top rail is level. I had to use the lower fork eyelet to mount the rack which put the upper hoop quite close to the tire. (700 x 38) There is clearance between the hoop and tire, but just enough. I realize that the top rail does not have to be level, but I choose to do this for esthetic reasons as much as anything. The finish on the rack is not so good. I believe it is powder coated. After the one overnight one of the upper rails is worn all the way to bare metal. (Using an Ortlieb from pannier) I will install protective tape where the pannier hooks attach. It will also require periodic touch up with some black paint to keep the steel from rusting. The panniers ride lower on the TARA than on the Surly front rack. I like the feel of this as the front end is very stable.
