2019 Kona Sutra front rack recommendations?
« on: September 27, 2018, 09:09:11 am »
I've just purchased a 2019 Kona Sutra and would appreciate any recommendations for a front pannier rack.  The forks o the Sutra are straight therefore difficult to match to a rack (or so I've been told).  Has anyone mounted a front rack on a Kona Sutra and what would you recommend?

I recently purchased a Sutra. The shop that I bought from installed a Tubas Tara Lowrider rack. It fits very well.  My Ortlieb back packer panniers fit and ride fantastically.

I've got a 2012 Sutra which is a great bike. I don' know how much different the forks are from the newer models -- not much, I'd guess - but I've got a Tubas Tara rack on the front and it works just great.  One of the best racks out there. A bit pricey, maybe, but worth it ,IMO.

Thank you so much for your responses.  Yes, the Tubus Tara was my likely target but I just wanted to play it safe and get feedback from people who have actually mounted the rack.  Thanks again for your input, you have been a great help.
