Why not for fat Bikes


Have this and its great but also need for my Moonlander. I saw a review about making these for Fat Bikes and I also called them about a year ago and asked the question if there were plans to make them for Fat Bikes. The answer was no. And this is strange considering there has been a lot of growth in the Fat Bike Industry. Thule should get on it before somebody else does. And it doesn't seem like it would be very involved to do a slight mod. I prefer dealing with Thule but will go to whoever makes what I need. It should be made to fit the largest available which I think is still 4.8". Thank you. Also Thule should respond to this question for us all to see and know if there are any plans to make them.



how about an insta-gater that fits fat bikes?


doesn't fit my fatbike with 4.7 inch tires. i would recomend if you didn't have a fatbike.
