Broke in less than a year

The fork mounting system seized up and stopped working in less than a year. WD-40, etc. would not help. I think the threaded system is a poor design as it allows corrosion from the elements to seize the threads.

Nice design and look, works great and it's very easy to install too. I'm very happy with this Thule bike carrier.
