Nice Thru-Axle Fork Mount with Major Flaw
Used the 535 several times for my Niner Jet 9 w/15mm thru axle. Rack is solid and stable; new D-shaped profile is excellent. One major problem: the rack gives no clearance for disc brakes (see pics). I would imagine that most thru-axle mtn bikes would have discs and therefore this problem, so no idea how this slipped by Thule design. The only way I can use it is to mount the axle completely to the right side (even though axle should be centered). I have a 180mm disc up front; with a larger disc, rack may be completely unusable.
