great rack. hard on the axles though

5

i use the product for both road and mountain bikes with QR and though axles, couple of things, the fact that the front end has either t-rail mounting and clamp-on options is great, but why not for the rear? clamp only seems like an oversite, especially when all you need is half of an Xadapt-1 kit. secondly. buying a $40 adapter for the ability to lock your QR to prevent theft is annoying, but there's no good way to cook that functionality into the rack by default, so it is what it is.. thirdly, would it be to much to ask to include axle sleeves of ANY material (even delrin) to accomodate for the missing hub? (would just need 3 sizes, 12x100 for road, 15x110 for boost forks and 15x100 for non boost forks) screwing the thru axle back into the fork sans wheel causes the fork to flex inwards which is probably not a great thing for the fork, having the thru axle tight is the only way to prevent the front end from having wiggle on the rack. but to tighten the axle all the way you have to go past flush on the threaded side (it's typically flush with a wheel in place). flexing the fork.. your only other option is to screw the axle back to where it WOULD be if the hub was in place, but then you end up with the front end of your bike rattling about on the rack, it also would prevent the clamp from clamping down directly on the metal of the axle. which would reduce the gouges that CAN happen if you tighten the adjuster down too much (which has already been discussed in previous reviews)

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.
