Best Uses

    Comments about Thule Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack:

    Since the only attachment to the bike is through the tightened straps, there is no "hard" point of securement. Although I have tightened the straps as much as possible, the rack still slides down the bike frame under the weight of the pannier. This is causing scaring and damage to my bike frame. If I could return, I would absolutely. Since the primary functions of a rear rack are to stay on the bike and securely hold items, I give two stars for completely failing at one of these tasks.

    Comments about Thule Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack:

    I purchased two rear racks in NZ and mounted them with 26 litre Thule panniers on full suspension mountain bikes (Scott 920 Genius and Specialized Camber, both 29ers) They have been used on easy to hard trails over 2015 to 2017. My experiences with this product are as follows:
    The two vertical aluminium tubes on each rack required lengthening by 30mm. This was needed to get a 10mm clearance between the rear tyre and underside of the rack's plastic tray. It also allowed the rack webbing fixings to be located towards the rear axle to avoid bike shoe heels contacting the panniers when riding. On the Scott, even with these changes, each upper bar used for mounting panniers needed an aluminium extension added to give adequate clearance between heels and panniers. On the Specialized, the rear disc brake mounting prevented moving the rack webbing fixings too far back. Fortunately it was my wife's bike and her feet are small. Make sure a drop of "locktight" is applied to all bolt threads. Without this, nuts readily work loose and are lost. The bolt hole used to connect the male end of the plastic fixing at the bottom of the two vertical aluminium tubes was enlarged by loads on the bolt on hard trails. Make the lengths of webbing used to fix the rack to the bike is as short as possible. This makes it easier to remove the rack. I used the lengths supplied by Thule which resulted in a very tight wrap of webbing that would not unwind and had to be cut to remove the rack.

    Exactly what I needed

    Comments about Thule Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack:

    I needed a rack for my road bike. Since it's a racing-style frame, it lacks the attach points for a traditional rack. This fit perfectly and seems to be quite sturdy.
