Engineering Marvel! Yet not confidence inspiring...


While this generation of front-wheel-on Thule rack does seem "rattlely," it holds big bikes just fine. I put both my 33 pound Enduro and my 40 pound DH bike on the roof and braffed around town. No more wobble than my Side Arm that these replaced. I was going to give them 4 Stars because they just don't inspire the confidence that the mostly metal Side Arm did. But then I remembered how nice and supportive Thule is to deal with on warranty issues. And how rarely that happens where I work. So I thought meh, they'll help me if I need it. And then I went back to worrying about keeping up with the younger guys...

This is brilliant!


I installed on my driver side so the release knob is kinda a pain but i'm used to it now! Great product!!




Defective product


The locking mechanism doesn't work so your bike falls off the roof. Not user error. I have spent more hours than I'd like to admit w this. It's defective. Now I notice others online with the same problem. Don't buy this rack.
