Solid and effective

PostedApril 24, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, well engineered
I am sure forks with eyelets do exist, but if you have the more usual type without then you need a means to attach your tubus Tara to the fork and this could be it.
Like other Tubus products it is reassuringly solid and complete. I wouldn't say that the fit on my 1980s sports tourer steel forks is perfect but it is hard to know how that could be achieved for all forks and this is a good compromise. I guess something like a jubilee clip with a bolt and nut could be made to work but it wouldn't look so good and I would worry more about the paintwork.
I still haven't used it "on tour" but for now I would recommend this product

Bolts too short

PostedJanuary 1, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: bolts too short
As a previous reviewer has stated, the supplied bolts were too short too go around my forks. M5 bolts from a DIY shop dod the trick however. Other than that, pretty sturdy!

Screws too small

PostedAugust 15, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: screws too small
I have a 31mm dimater fork, which is in the recommended 20mm-32mm, but the screws are only 30mm long, so I can't fit it. I have to find separate 40mm stainless steel screws to mount it. Not the end of the world, but be aware of it.
