My oldest Tubus rack is a Cargo I bought maybe 20 years ago and it has been used for daily commutes as well as touring. They are costly when you buy them but cheap if you work it out on a cost per mile or per year basis. I'm glad I didn't go for anything cheaper. It would have been a false economy.
This costs £100, which is a lot.
But mine, at about 20 years of regular use in all weathers, is still going strong and has cost me £5 per year at today's prices. Is that too much?
Or around £75 delivered from Germany.
