The Tubus Vega Classic is a minimalist’s rear rack for use on bikes that work with twin upper seatstay rack fittings or clamps.   It is very light weight and stable – the lightest Tubus rack with two upper mounting stays.  This is a great rack for the cyclist who wants a rear rack, but needs to keep it light!

  • The Vega fits bikes with 700C or 26 inch tires.   It weighs only 510 grams (18 ounces).  The load capacity is 25kg (55 pounds).
  • The tubular chromoly top rails are 10mm in diameter.
  • The Vega is like the Logo, but without the lower side rails.  It is “made for daily use and weekend trips.”
  • The included 240mm length upper rack mounting stays will fit the majority of bikes.  If you have a very small frame, you may need the 350mm extra-long upper rack mounting stays.  The upper rack mounting stays are made of solid aluminum rods, rather than hollow steel tubes.  This allows a very tight clamping force without crushing the rods, and solid rods are easy to bend in case brake parts are in the way, or rack fittings are too far apart.
  • This rack is compatible with the Tubus Quick Release Mounting Kit on my Tubus Fit Solutions page below.

  • Tubus Vega Classic vs. Tubus Fly Classic:  Many of my customers who ask for a Tubus Fly Classic rack should consider this rack instead.  If you look at the side-view photos, this rack is very similar to the ultra-light Fly rack, but it has two upper rack mounting stays instead of a single mounting stay.  If your bike has built-in rack fittings on the seat-stays, this will likely be a better fit.  If it does not have seatstay rack fittings, but has aluminum or steel tubes, then the Tubus Stay Mounting Clamps on my Tubus Fit Solutions page may help this rack fit, while avoiding attachment to the brake bridge.  This will be a slightly stronger setup, yet easier, and you still have an exceptionally simple and light weight rack.  The Fly Evo or Fly Classic Stainless Steel racks are still great racks when the fit is right, and the load is light!
