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 lower’s your pannier’s center of gravity, improving your bike’s handling. This is one of the best choices for long self-supported bicycle touring, and it has been the most popular Tubus front rack. The Tara fits many bikes with 26 and 700C (27 inch) wheels.
NOTE: If you are running tires that only require the standard size Tara, but might be using wider tires, or are thinking about transferring your Tara to another bike with wider tires, you may want to consider the Big Apple version for more versatility.
