Tubus QR Adapter

Stock status: 5 in stock

This nifty adapter utilizes a quick release skewer to clamp a bracket in position for interfacing with the 2 lower mounting holes of a rear rack.

This is a secure way to mount a rack on a bike that was not intended to have a rack. With this setup, you can convert your racing bike or your MTB into a touring bike!

If you would like to utilize this setup while mounting a BOB Trailer to your bicycle, it will be necessary to use the wider 160mm Santana QR(in place of the quick release that comes with the Tubus QR Adapter). It will also be necessary to switch to a Santana Fork on your BOB for proper interfacing between the BOB Fork and BOB QR.

Works with the following racks:

Tubus Logo Titanium
Tubus Cosmo Stainless Steel
Tubus Fly Stainless Steel
Tubus Luna Stainless Steel
Tubus Carry Titanium
Tubus Airy Titanium

  • 1 Quick release skewer
  • 4 Washers
  • 6 Spacers
  • 2 Brackets
  • 4 Nuts
  • 4 Bolts

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.

I love this product! After purchasing a Topeak Explorer rack for my mountain bike, I soon realized that it was unmountable since I have zero braze-ons on the bike. I took the chance this might work and it worked perfectly. I also had to buy a seat post collar with braze-ons, but with this Tubus adapter and the seat post collar, it worked like a charm.

Did exactly what I hoped - enabled me to mount a rear rack on my road bike that had no eyelets. All the necessary hardware was there; the various-sized washers were good for customizing the fit of the skewer.

Solid, well made parts which should hold up well to heavy use. However, comes only with printed picture type instructions which although adequate could be improved for the less mechanically minded. For instance you may or may not require to use all the spacer washers in your installation. I combined this with a Sunlite rack mount seat post clamp to mount a tubus foldit rack to an all carbon frame with no rack or fender mounting points, to carry a medium size trunk bag. Works fine.

Adapter works well and installation is fairly straightforward. However, I ordered this adapter with the Tubus Seat Stay Mount, and the instructions included with this QR Adapter were just another copy of the instructions for the Seat Stay Mount. This made installation a bit of a guessing game, but I seem to have installed it in a way that works okay.
