    Question for Tubus Tara front rack owners

    Those of you who might own a Tubus Tara front rack and have it mounted on a 26" wheel, could you please tell me the distance from the top bar of the rack (that your pannier hooks mount over) to the ground. As always, thanks for your input.

    I suppose the answer will vary according to fork and tire. I have a tara mounted to the lower fork eyelet of an LHT using Schwable Supremes 26x2.0 and get a measurement of 19 1/2" from the ground to the center of the horizontal mounting bar and about 19 10/16" to the top of the bar. Hope this is useful info to you.

    if youre looking for a higher (lowrider), there is also the new tubus smarti front rack- my lady just got one of these in preparation for a 6 week tour she is doing solo... she bought it from SJS for her bike that is 26 inch wheels and has no midfork brazeons...

    I use the tubus duo on a 26 inch bike, and the distance from (center) rail to ground is 19 inches with schwalbe M-supreme 1.6 inch tires.
