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.

I bought 2 of these after having a competitors wheel on roof bike mount. The thru ride is light years better. I'm using it on a Santa Cruz Nomad and I get no bike "wobble" even bouncing up 4x4 roads. I like the idea of a wheel left on roof rack but the stability of locking down on the axle can't be beat. This also worked very well for my road bikes but you can see it's meant for through axle bikes. The only side note is I did get a small scratch on my axle so have started using. A shop rag cut to size to help protect the axle.

Easy to use and a breeze for installation!


Added on a Aero bar kit. Easy to install and fits bike perfectly. Little bit of noise with the wind.
