Difficult to mount without creating stress points leading to fatigue failure

ConsDifficult to mount and prone to fatigue
ProsFits the rack which is a very good rack
Works but prone to fatigue after a few thousand kilometers. Need to take special care not to stress the brackets at all during installation - difficult because the mounting lugs are not square to the mounting point on by bike if mounted as shown in the marketing photos. I am now on my 3rd set of these brackets in about 8000km.
Great Item....

I recommend this product
ProsWell made fair price well thought out item.
A well made fitting kit, good finish very happy with this allowed me to fit my old rack. They cover a wide range of mounting points - swapping left to right & switching the mounts inner to outer, I think this kit would cover most racks.
Questions & Answers (8)
Diameter of the curved fixing rod/stays please.
10 May 2020
I have purchased Tortec racks from you before and have found that the rod/stays supplied are too curved to fit the seat stay spacing on some bike frames so I have manufactured dead straight rods. I thought of fitting the straight Tubus (8mm Diam) or Brompton stays.
These stays are 7.5 mm diameter. Thanks
Size of Bolts for mounting the Stay Clamps to a Rack?
28 Dec 2018
Hi Hi Folks,

What is the Size of the Bolts that are used for mounting the Stay Clamps to a Rack?

Can you give me the diameter of the threaded section also please?

Does Tubus use the same size?

The top bolts, which secure the item to the rack are M4.

Please more information about which threaded section you would like know.

Thanks - 31/12/18
Could I possibly fit these to a Carradice Expedition rack?
09 Feb 2018
I'm looking to add some additional support to my Carradice Standard Expedition rack and wonder if these could possibly connect to the rails? At one time Carradice offered a method of support that connected from the rack to the seat stays, but i have been unable to locate a source. Now I'm shopping for alternatives. Thank you in advance.
Hi there,

No these would not fit, the supports are no longer available.


Can you tell me the offset measurement.
19 Oct 2017

These stays have approximately 25mm of offset.

How many M5 mounting holes on each side?
12 Oct 2017
Does each fixing have two consecutive M5 mounting holes where it is attached to the seat stay? Thank you

These rack fixings do indeed have two consecutive mounting holes for where it attaches to the seat stay.

Could I Make These Tortec Fixings Work With A Topeak Explorer Rack?
13 Mar 2017
With a vice and a hammer I managed to bend my original Topeak fixings to hold my rack in place. I want to move the rack to another bike now and these TorTec fixings look like they would be far easier to use. If I have to drill out the holes on the rack or cut the fixings to length that would be fine. The rack will be going on a Specialized Diverge road frame.

Although we have never tried this exact combination so can't say for sure the fittings are similar enough so that it should be fine to use these with your Topeak rack.


What Is The Diameter Of The Stay And The Fixing Hole?
27 Jul 2016
What is the diameter of the stay and the fixing hole?

These stays are 7.5mm in diameter and the fixing holes are 5mm in diameter.

What Is The Length Of This?
08 Feb 2014

The length from centre of the bolt hole to the furthest point the sliding mount can reach is 200mm.
