PLEASE NOTE!!! TheTouringStore.com is NOW CLOSED FOR BUSINESS. Wayne is riding off into the sunset off in search of new adventures!
I am Josh Lipton and I've had the great pleasure of working with Wayne to take over where he's left off. I've been selling Ortlieb Bags and Tubus Racks for many years at the BikeShopHub.com.
BikeShopHub.com is rebranding to focus completely on bicycle touring! The new brand is CampfireCycling.com, launching April 29th. Please see my post announcing the upcoming change. And to get all of our updates about our changes ahead, please subscribe to our newsletter.
Before our launch, TheTouringStore.com will stay live as a resource. Once CampfireCycling.com goes live, we'll be merging TheTouringStore.com in with it.
Tubus Racks are the best choice for carrying your Ortlieb Packs!
Ortlieb Plus and Classic Series panniers utilize the new QL2.1 Quick Lock mounting system, adjustable without any tools, with automatic opening and closing by lifting the handle. The QL2.1 system comes with 16mm wide top hooks, and adjusts with 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm hook inserts to help you fit various rack top-rail diameters. Adjustable width hooks at the base of the panniers keep the bottom mounted securely to the side of the rack. The sliding top hooks can be repositioned to allow precise placement on the rack top rails. This can also help move the panniers toward the rear of your rack, providing heel clearance while riding. Optional extra top hooks can be added to reinforce the mounting system when you take your panniers off-road. Optional 20mm QL-2.1 Top-Hooks are available for over-sized rack top-rails.
