Gear Talk / Re: Tubus Tara Lowrider Front Rack Mounting Question
« on: November 12, 2020, 11:53:45 am »
Just started to install Tubus Tara Lowrider on my Surly Disc Trucker.  None of the stainless screws and bolts in the Tubus mounting kit have the right thread angle to fit the lugs on the fork. (Thanks Tubus!) The thread angles on the stainless screws DO NOT match the receiving threads on the lugs. Not wanting to strip the fork, I stopped.  Anyone else encounter this problem?  Here's a question I need answered to proceed:  Are the threaded receiving holes on the lowest tip  of the fork the same diameter and thread angle as all the rest of the lugs on the bike frame?  It seems like they might be a smaller diameter and have a different thread angle than the allen screws already on the fork (Those screws are all the same as bottle cage mount screws).

Many thanks to both of you who replied on this.  I'm new to the forum, so don't know how to reply individually.  This is exactly what I was hoping to learn before considering the Alternate.  There's three of us in our group and we'll discuss your posts.  We'll probably stick to the pavement.

Question on TransAmerica Trail, Section 4, Missoula to West Yellowstone,Panel 38:  Has anyone recently ridden over Gibbons Pass Alternate from North to South.  The most recent posts in the Routes Forum date from 2017.  I'm interested in the condition of the road:  Is it maintained? Washboard? Washouts? Sandbars?  Will be riding in August 2020 with fully loaded tour bike with #32 tires.  Any comments or help appreciated.  Thanks.
