The Tubus Duo is a low-rider front rack suitable for forks with double braze-ons. The rack attaches to the mid-point braze-ons and the lower carrier eyelets at the drop outs. The distance between the upper and lower brazed-on fork fittings should be 165mm (+/- 3mm). Extra mounting tabs allow for directly mounting a fender to the rack. The chromoly steel is lightweight and sturdy. The fit allows enough room so as not to rub on the front tire while still offering great carrying capacity and stability for commuting or touring.
Mount some Ortlieb Panniers to the Duo to get that extra packing space you've been looking for!

Note: When using panniers with Ortlieb's Lower QL-1 hooks such as the Ortlieb Roller Classic Panniers with Tubus Tara or Duo racks, adjust the pannier's lower mounting hook. After removing the hook, rotate the grommet 90 degrees adding an additional 5 mm of width for wider rack diameters.
Tubus Racks come with a 10-YEAR WARRANTY.
Tubus also offers a 3-year Mobile Guarantee. To qualify, send in the registration card that comes with your rack. Tubus will air-mail a replacement rack anywhere in the world if the rack breaks during normal use. This is great peace of mind for cycle tourists traveling to far-off corners of the world.
