Front Rack Mounting Systems

Tara Upper Mounts
  • Easy to mount with a variety of eyelet configurations.
    • The mounting arm rotates up and down.
    • M5 bolts mounts to the mid-fork eyelet through a slot which allows for variation in the bolt’s position.
  • For bicycles without mid-fork eyelets, compatible with the Tubus Mid-Fork Eyelet Adapters.
  • Please Note:  There is some variability in where bicycle manufactures place their mid-fork eyelets in relation to the lower eyelets.  Additionally variations in various aspects of fork geometry means that even with the built-in adjustability, you may not get your rack top-rails perfectly level.  Don’t worry.  Your packs will stay mounted securely even if your rack is not level.
Duo Upper Mounts
