    Raleigh Sojourn - Front Rack help

    Hey guys,

    I'm new here but been a lurker for a couple months. I recently quit my wage slave job in a cubicle, and I'm preparing for my first tour to Central America from Atlanta, GA. Woo!

    I'm currently having a little trouble with mounting a front rack. The eyelets are buried behind the front forks and make mounting the Nashbar rack a little difficult. Also, the Nashbar one seems sub-par. I plan on getting Ortlieb panniers.

    Could anyone recommend compatible yet sturdy front racks? I'm trying not to break the bank, but I'd prefer a solid rack.

    Thanks!

    Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    The Tubus Tara is expensive but you'll never need to buy another It has standoffs to fit around the fork. The Old Man Mountain AC isn't as pretty but it's half the price.

    Great. Thanks guys. I was going to get the panniers from The Touring Store, so getting the Tubus Tara from there might work.
