This nifty adapter utilizes a quick release skewer to clamp a bracket in position for interfacing with the 2 lower mounting holes of a rear rack.
This is a secure way to mount a rack on a bike that was not intended to have a rack. With this setup, you can convert your rear QR dropout bicycle into a touring bike!
Works with the following rear Tubus racks:
- Tubus Logo Classic
- Tubus Cargo Classic
- Tubus Vega Classic
- Tubus Fat
- Tubus Cosmo
- Tubus Fly Stainless Steel
- Tubus Airy Titanium
This adapter also works with other older Tubus racks that are no longer available that have flat machined lower dropouts with two holes. Here are two such racks from our archives:
*If you would like to utilize this setup while mounting a BOB Trailer to your bicycle, it will be necessary to use the wider 160mm Santana QR(in place of the quick release that comes with the Tubus QR Adapter). It will also be necessary to switch to a Santana Fork on your BOB for proper interfacing between the BOB Fork and BOB QR.
