Details
The Transalp is specifically designed for bikes with disc brakes. Simple and super quick to mount to 26" and 700c bikes. Produced from lightweight 10 mm alloy tubing and with additional lower pannier mounting rails means it's easy to attach a rack pack without interfering with pannier hooks.

Proseasy to fit and well costructed
Nice rack, only used for commuting, but will be used for light touring and camping. Easy to put on to Trek 8.3DS 2012. Good clearance of the disc brake caliper.

ProsSolid, easy to fit, well finished
Can only comment on fitting and light use so far, but it seems very well put together and is rock solid on the bike.

Very easy to install with nice SS bolts and fitted with no modifications to my disc-braked Marin Novato 2010.

I intend to use this rack as part of a pannier system for commuting, light touring and camping later in 2011. Looks like it should be up to the job.

Would be nice if Tortec produced a matching front rack for disc brake equipped bikes.

I tried another rack, and the top supports just didn't reach the fairly low top mounting boss' , resulting in the rack pointing too the moon.

Any idea if these would fit?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

Unfortunately as we have never sold your bike or had one here to test it with we have no way of knowing if this rack will work with your lower top mounting boss' I'm afraid.

Thanks.
How Wide Is This Rack?

I'm looking for a rack to fit on the rear of a 5" fatbike, what is the gap between the inside of the rear stays?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

The distance between the stays where the widest part of the tyre would sit is about 5 1/4 inches so would probably be too tight to fit a 5" tyre properly. Even if you were to drop to smaller 4 1/2 inch tyres, you would have to check the distance between the rack mounts on the frame as this can be a limiting factor when fitting racks to fat bikes. The lower mounting point on this rack can be mounted to a frame that has mounts that are up to 170mm wide.

Thanks.
Fitting

Hi. Will this rack also fit a bike non disc brake bike, e.g .with cantilever or V brakes brakes or is there a non disc model?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

They don't do this exact model in a non-disc version but they do a number of similar alternatives. This rack can however be used on a bike without disc brakes anyway, it will just have extra unnecessary clearance.

Thanks.

where do i fix the lower part of the rack? on the frame eyelets or on the wheel axle? if on the axle, do i need a longer one?
thanks
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

The rack requires eyelets to fit it, so you will need some longer bolts then it should just attach to your frame.

Thanks.
