Tubus rear rack

Postby b1ke » 23 Oct 2017, 10:12am

Very well used Tubus Cargo rear rack and Tubus Tara front rack. Pics to follow.

These are now surplus to requirements. The paint has come away and been touched up in a different colour in parts. Some of this has come away and there are plenty of areas of rust. I was going to respray black but decided to leave them as they are so you can see what you're getting.

The rear rack has different mounting rails to the originals. The ones I've fitted work fine, but the originals are available online if preferred.

The racks are steel and a good quality build. Mounting bolts not included although I can probably dig out a few stainless bolts if required. They're for a 26 inch wheel bike.

Price £45 posted UK for the pair. Payment by PayPal Gift.

For an extra £5, I can also throw in a pair of used Tubus front rack mounts for rigid forks with no existing rack mounts. I used these with the Tara and they worked very well.

I'd be interested in the front if you fancy splitting. It seems it'll fit 700c

And I may be able to help out by being interested in a split deal on the rear.

Please give me first dibs on it - but I woud like to see pics.

How serious is this rust?

Structural?

I can confirm that the Tara is a good rack.

And I have used it with those Tubus mounts for bikes without fork mounts.

Thanks for the interest in the racks. I'm away from tomorrow pedalling so won't get chance to post pics until Sunday. Apologies for the delay.

Happy to split the front and rear as requested. Let me know if you're still interested when you've seen the pics.

Cheers

Ps. Regarding the rust question, pretty sure there's nothing structural. I always painted over when surface rust appeared. If you can see beyond the aesthetic and have a tin of spray paint handy, they're both still decent racks.

I'd be interested in both together if that makes things a little easier??

I'm afraid I am out, after a 10day gap in updates I had assumed you had sold them and so have spent my money elsewhere

Pics now added below. More available on request by email.

As I said on the original ad, these racks are very well used and will need a respray. The paint is uneven/bubbled and there's plenty of surface rust. If you want more pics please ask. I want you to see what you're getting prior to me posting. I don't want disappointment based on high expectations. I can include 2 stainless mounting bolts with each rack. That's all I've got spare so you'll need to add a couple more. See also the original ad for more information.

Happy to sell individually. £25 each posted or £20 collected from Wakefield.

(Just to add, I live on a boat and my electricity comes via the sun. One of the reasons for the delay in posting the pics is the lack of power I've had. If I'm slow to respond to requests for more pics, that's why.)

Rear rack

This has a small dent on the rear. I've removed the paint to check there's no structural damage. It looks ok.

Thanks for the reply and pics.

Having seen them I will pass on my previous claim on the rear.

Best of luck with your sale.
