The Tubus Grand Expedition Front is the first ever combination of a lowrider & highrider front carrier system. Combining the convenience of carrying panniers on the front, the Grand Expedition allows you to also carry racktop luggage.
The Grand Expedition is a great addition to a full touring set up, allowing you to balance the load across the bike or simply as a solution for the smaller riders on smaller bikes where carrying capacity under the saddle or in the main triangle is limited.
Compatible with almost every pannier system (including ORTLIEB) the Grand Expedition easily carries 2x front panniers or gravel packs in addition to rack-top bags or dry bags such as the SALTY ROLL for your camping gear on top the rack.
If you’re still in the early stages of your research on racks, check out our FAQ page for some more detailed info. We also keep these racks in stock in our bike shop in Richmond so that you can come in & compare them in person.
TUBUS GRAND EXPEDITION COMPATIBILITY
The Grand Expedition Front mounts on the eyelets of the front fork (such as is found on Surly, Curve, Bombtrack, Tumbleweed bikes) so does not have a brake specific mounting.
If your front fork does not have eyelets for mounting a lowrider, and is a rigid steel or aluminium fork, Tubus make adapter clamps allowing you to do so. One for fork diameters of 20-26MM, and one for fork diameters of 25-40MM.
