Tubus Mid-Fork Eyelets for Tara and Ergo

Stock status: 5+ in stock

Use the Tubus Mid-Fork Eyelets for mounting the Tubus Tara, Tubus Ergo, Tubus Nova, Jandd Low Front Rack, Jandd Extreme Front Rack or the Racktime Topit to forks without mid-fork eyelets (fork dropout eyelets are still required for Tubus and Jandd front racks).

Tubus mid-fork eyelets can also be utilized for any brand of front bicycle rack that requires a mid-fork mounting pointing. To determine what size you need, measure the circumference of your fork and divide by 3.14 (pi) to determine the diameter. This method works for ovalized forks as well.

Choose from 2 versions of the Mid-Fork Eyelets:

-Standard Fork Sizes 20-32mm diameter: Machined aluminum parts, rubber pads, nuts & bolts.

  • 6 Washers
  • 6 Bolts
  • 4 Brackets
  • 4 Nuts
  • 2 Grip Strips

-Oversized Fork Sizes 33-40mm diameter: Stainless steel hose clamp, rubber pads, nuts & bolts.
  • 2 Bolts
  • 2 Nuts
  • 2 Washers
  • 2 Grip Strips
  • 2 Hose Clamps
  • 2 Brackets
Both versions clamps firmly to the fork blades and will not slide out of position, on straight or tapered forks.

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.

The clamps are well built, but a bit tricky to install. Finding the correct position took some thought as planning as I needed to test fit with the Racktime Topit Front Rack installed, but couldn't tighten them with the rack in place. I used the provided rubber strips, but electrical tape may have been less of a hassle. I had to bend my rack outward slightly, but that doesn't seem to be an issue. Also, the clamps only touch a portion of the sides of my oval fork, but with the rubber strips, the limited contact area doesn't seem to be a problem. With the Topit Front rack tightened, everything feels secure.

Added a Tara rack to Rivendell Sam Hillborne which doesn't have mid-fork eyelets. This set up fine and is plenty sturdy. I worried it would look too bulky but I doesn't look bad with the rack on there.

This bracket is well made, but the shape has to fit your forks in order for it to work. It had very little contact area on oval forks and did not feel secure at all. In addition, the bracket is rather thick and I would have had to bend my rack outward about 10mm in order to fit it. Hardware store (or Jandd) clamps seem to work better and cost a whole lot less. This clamp might work if you have flatter, blade shaped forks. Returning the part to BBS was quick and easy and they were fast to processes my refund.
