German pannier rack manufacturer is known for its super-tough, super-expensive carriers. Later this year the company will produce a £35 aluminium rack, also made in Germany, but sub-branded as Racktime. Simon Gershon of Orbit Cycles is the UK distributor for Tubus but feels Racktime should be handled by a bigger supplier. Interested?
Tubus to launch rack sub-brand
"Tubus s that Racktime racks will be superior to all other alloy carriers including Blackburn, Topeak, SL, Tortec, and Minoura," said Gershon.
"Their in-house tests have proved that."
Tubus has offered Orbit distribution of the sub-brand, but Gershon said "Tubus would be better served if one of the larger wholesalers was UK distributor for Racktime."
