    Recommend front rack for Ortlieb

    I picked up a pair of Ortlieb front panniers and am wondering if anyone knows of a good rack that will be compatible with them(on a Trek 520).

    I like Tubus Racks. Light, strong for it's weight and quite flexible to mount. They aren't cheap, but very few good things are.

    I put a Jandd on mine with Ortieb panniers works fine.

    Well the only thing my LBS had was the Delta Frontloader, and it's not compatible with my braze-on screw locations. REI only had the Delta also. Grrrrr....

    I'll toss my change in for Tubus also. Check out TheTouringStore.com for great prices and Fantastic support before and after the sale.

    Ditto. Plus the Tara is about the sexiest front rack you will ever run across (I know, I'm sick.)

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. I really appreciate it.

    In surfing the web, I came across a pic of a Trek 520 with the Tubus and it seems like the fit I'm looking for. I ordered one.

    Thanks again.

    Wow, you're Bruce. Do you build your bikes in Petaluma? I dont suppose you offer bike building classes? I'm shopping for a welder right now and amassing old frames to practice on.
