I am looking at the Surly front rack and was wondering if it's compatible with this Tubus mount.

If it's not I'll have to go for the Tara but I was keen on having a platform on my front rack. Any decent recommendations ?

    What type of fork/bike do you have. In general the tubes LM-1 mounts should be compatible with the Surly front rack in question, but that does not mean it will work on your specific bike.

The rack and Tubus mounts will work together. You should double check that the Tubus mounts fit your particular fork. If you are looking for a porteur style rack (with the front platform), also consider the Specialized Pizza Rack, the Soma Fabrications Porteur Rack and the Velo Orange Porteur Rack. The Velo Orange rack doesn't even require fork eyelets.

  • thanks for the reply. I ended up going with the trusted tara+tubus mounts and dismissing the platform requirement...
