very short review of tubus duo

The duo is a great rack, but it doesn't always feel 100% stable... With my T2000, the spacers don't quite work perfectly with the bottom braze-on. In retrospect, I definitely wish I had gotten the Tara. I've used a lowrider with a hook over the top of wheel before with my miyata, and it's more steady and firm. I got the duo for the wrong reasons - it's streamlined, sexier, and a tiny bit lighter. Now I wish I had gotten the tara.

It's not much of a contribution, but it might help people considering a new front rack...

I would sell it in Ebay and buy the Tara. You will not loose much money, but you will gain peace of mined

I considered doing that, but I don't have the original spacers anymore... Do you think I could find/buy some to include with the auction? Anyone know of a store or supply parts place that would carry the same or similar ones?

Maybe the buyers will have more insight then you about what spacers they need. If its not hard to get the spacers, then get them, else just put the rack up for auction. Just check before how much auctions end for rack like this and see if its a good way to go.
