Tubus racks are strong, beautiful and lightweight. It's no surprise these German-made carriers have become the basic equipment of any top quality touring or commuting bicycle.

Their Tara model is a virtually indestructible Front Rack made from thin walled 25CrMo4 steel tubes. By lowering placement of weight on the front-end of your bike, Lowrider-style racks ensure more predictable steering and dramatically improved handling compared to other front carriers.

The Tara Lowrider also features adjustable side arms and three different mounting holes so it can be easily mounted on nearly every fork*. It even has a separate set of lower eyelets for more convenient fender attachment. Pair with the Cargo Rear Rack for the ultimate bombproof touring set-up.

The load capacity for the Tara rack is 33 lbs (15kg). Weight: 530g with included hardware. Black.

All Tubus racks are backed up by a 30-year Worldwide Guarantee against technical failure. The Cargo and other CrMo models are also supported by an additional 3-year Mobile Guarantee against technical failure. This means, within the first 3 years after purchase date, a broken carrier will be replaced and a new one will be forwarded to any place on earth - wherever you are - for free. Please see the Tubus website for warranty details.

*The Tara can only be mounted to forks with both mid-blade eyelets and fork-tip eyelets. Tubus also produces a mounting set for forks which are not equipped with mid-blade eyelets. If you are unclear about compatibility with your fork please contact us.

Attractive, sturdy, lightweight.

I mounted successfully a Tubus Tara rack on my 2017 CO-OP ADV 2.1 equipped with stock mechanical disc brakes, 700c x 35m Schwalbe Marathon tires mounted on Deore hubbed wheels, and PlanetBike 45m Cascadia fenders. I hang Ortlieb Gravel Pack panniers on the Tara. I am perfectly satisfied with the appearance and utility of the Tara in this configuration. The fork on the ADV 2.1 is wide and the fork blades are chubby. The Tara just barely fit, attaching the Tara by the the upper of the two eyelets. The Taras horizontal pannier mounting bar is almost level. The Gravel Pack panniers fit snugly, using both stock horizontal clips and one stock vertical clip on each pannier. (The angle of Taras vertical mounting bar does not provide enough access to attach both stock vertical clips on a Gravel Pack pannier. I had to slide out of the way the second vertical clip of each pannier.) Also, I had to replace my Deore quick release skewer with a slimmer after-market skewer in order to rotate conveniently the skewer quick release handle when the Tara is mounted. Further, in order to remove the front wheel when the Tara is mounted, I must first remove the skewer - which means I have to re-mount the front wheel on the fork without the skewer, then slide in and tighten the skewer. I am willing to tolerate this inconvience because I value the appearance, sturdiness and lightweight of the Tara, compared to all competing front racks I have observed. As shipped from BTD, my copy of the Tubus Tara arrived when expected in mint condition, and with all mounting hardware listed on the manifest, except for the spanner wrench. Overall, am very pleased with my purchase. I have been purchasing bicycle tires and accessories from BTD for almost a decade with confidence and satisfaction. I recommend BTD to friends and associates enthusiastically.

Tubas Tara Lowrider Front Rack Review

My experience has been exceptional. The product arrived when it was supposed to, in perfect condition, and at a price significantly lower than Amazon Prime. I had a question of fit to a 2017 Specialized Carbon Diverge and your customer service provided with an accurate e-mail response to my Will it fit? question. Easy to install and remove. Stable when front gravel panniers are filled.

Solid and easy to install

Installed this rack on my wife's new Trek 520 Disc, and it went on easy around the disc brake with no spacers or customization needed. That was not the case for the rack I put on my own 520 Disc a couple years ago. Frankly, it's hard to understand why these racks are so expensive, but even so I am considering getting another for my own bike now.

The best lowrider front rack ...hands down

I am getting ready for bicycle touring this summer. The tubus tara lowrider front rack is perfect ... light but strong and a great value. I had used another front rack on a trip last year but this was too heavy and did not get my panniers low enough. I should have gone with the best on the first purchase

Huge weight savings...

I replaced my Surly front rack with the Tara Lowrider, and so far am happy with the decision - the rack is less than half the weight than my Surly. The rack is solid, and I can easily fit my Ortlieb front roller panniers on it. I will clearly need to play around with the positioning of the bottom clips on the panniers (the angles to get them engaged with the rack are more limited than on the Surly racks).

I did have an issue with getting the rack plus fenders installed. In my case I ended up needing to get a new quick release lever that would fit with the hardware and still function - for someone forgoing quick release levers for the locking variety, this is not an issue).

Only other minor complaint was aesthetic... on my Disk Trucker, the horizontal bars are not quite parallel to the ground. I played around with all possible installation points and it's just not possible (gave up after reading that this is a common complaint with the rack).
