    A 30-Year Warranty – that is the tubus standard – and a worldwide free of charge replacement service during the first 3 years for registered customers – how can we afford that?

    Since 1987 we have been continually improving our products. Our companys philosophy is to design and produce carriers that last. We do not take calculated risks. This means that before a product even comes into production it has to pass an extremely hard test procedure. Our procedures are far more demanding then the official standard for bicycle carriers. That is why tubus carriers do the job as well as they do.

    Guarantee: Starting from the production year 2009, the tubus carrier systems GmbH grants a worldwide guarantee for tubus carriers with a time limit of 30 years (untill the production year 2008 the guarantee is 10 years) . The worldwide guarantee of 30 years does not reduce the 2-year-warranty-period regulated by law (according to EU law). The guarantee granted by tubus carrier systems GmbH applies solely for a total technical failure/breakdown of a carrier. Any other damage due to unpropper mounting or such as scratches, rust or deformation are explicitly excluded from any guarantee claims. Only the original owner of the carrier is entitled to claim guarantee benefits. The entitlement has to be proved by the corresponding sales receipt of the carrier.

Tubus Minimal QL3

The best rack I've owned, moving up from a Racktime Front-it Rack (also good). This one easily attaches to the rear and will still allow you to pull a child on a trailer bike (with no interference). The QL3 system is great. If you are used to easy clip-on bike bags (as on a Brompton, my other bike) this system is a no-brainer, and much more elegant than the regular clunky hooks sticking out of panniers (in an urban context). One wonders why these little nibs on the Tubus can't (at some point) be integrated directly onto some frame (as a braze-on, etc.). That said, Tubus is indestructible and of excellent design. I would like to see this QL3 rack available in silver, and see a QL3 minimal rack designed for the front wheel.
