I travel with other people to ride trails near and far. We all ride different bikes and I have several friends who ride fat bikes so adding the option to haul a fat bike on my Thule 917XTR-T2 was a no brainer. The tray takes up to 5" wide tires and still has the ability to carry a mountain bike and even road bikes with the slender groove in the tray. The installation was very easy and took just minutes. A great product that makes my Thule rack even more versatile. 183047

Ordered the 919 fat tire kit, shipping was fast and it fit good. Installed in just a few minutes, could not be happier. I will order from ETRAILER again. Thanks ETRAILER. 489943

It's to bad I couldn't find just the rear tire cradle. I had to purchase a fat tire kit. The front tire cradle is for a fat tire. Wasted money. 488059

The rack works fantastic, very sturdy and holds the bikes securely. Very easy to load and unload. 224413

Quick and easy to replace the older, narrow trays. My 4" tires fit with room to spare so the 4.8" tires should fit as well. Had to replace my older ratchet arm with the newer, longer arm in order to load my fat bike. Received order very quickly. 171152

I have a Thule 917XTR, and needed the fat tire adapter kit. Took about 15 minutes to install. The front wheel "cup" is nice and wide, easily accommodates 4 inch Dillinger tire. I had to adjust the length of the rear strap (loosen the four screws and slide the strap up to the next position) to accommodate rim/tire size. I actually think the fat tire rear strap assembly is a better design than what was originally on the rack. Good Job Thule. 117221

Product ended up being backordered for an extended period but the communication throughout was excellent. Received regular status updates. When the product was finally available the price had increased but the original price was honored. 116448

Ask the Experts about this Thule Accessories and Parts

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Adapting a Thule T2 Bike Rack for a 27.5 Inch Fat Bike with 4.5 Inch Wide Tires
  • There's actually a different way of accommodating the fat bike to the rack. Part of the issue for fat bikes on the older T2 racks will be that the fat bike tires won't sit all the way down into the cradle, making them artificially larger. The original T2 is only equipped to handle up to 3 inch wide tires. You can simply purchase a replacement wheel cradle kit as part # TH919 for the older T2 racks to upgrade one bike location's wheel cradles, and let the bike sit correctly, removing...

  • Upgrading Old T2 Ratchet Arms and Wheel Trays to Be Compatible with 26 Inch Wheels with Fat Tires
  • The Thule T2 is the older style and the T2 Classic # TH9044 and T2 Pro # TH9034XT is the newer style. The newer T2 Classic can accept tires up to 5 inches wide but it does require changing the strap location. I've attached a photo to assist. The older T2 requires the Fat Tire Adapter Kit for Thule T2 Platform-Style Bike Rack # TH919 which will work in the same way as the photo attached to accommodate your 4.8 inch wide tires. Since you have the older version of the Thule T2 Classic...

  • Solution For Thule T2 Bike Rack When Arm Doesnt Want to Fit Over Tire After Fat Tire Adapter
  • I spoke to my contact at Thule and she informed me that the problem you described would indicate that you have the older style T2 bike rack (older than 2012) which was not designed for use with the fat tire adapter part # TH919, but can easily be made to work with the correct replacement part. All you need is the Replacement Locking Ratchet Arm part # 752-1272-001. This will replace what you currently have on your rack and will allow the arms of your rack to fit over the fat tires of...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Fat Bike
  • I have a solution for you, but the Rhino Rack Bike Rack part # RRRBC048 that you referenced would not be the platform bike rack to use for carrying a fat bike. Instead you would want the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2-Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # HR1400Z-85-FB. The wheel cradles of this rack can accommodate a tire that is up to 5 inches in width so it would work well for you. If you need a wheel mount bike rack that only touches the bikes at the wheel you would want the part # TH9044...

  • How to Use Fat Bike Adapter on the Thule T2 Classic 2
  • The wheel strap for the rear wheel included in the Fat Tire Adapter Kit part # TH919 should be plenty long for most fat tire bikes. It could be that you are not using the strap correctly as this would in turn cause it to appear too short. You will need to completely remove the strap from the rear wheel retention device. It will slide out just below the ratcheting buckle. Once removed, you simply need to slide it back in on the opposite side of the rear wheel retention dive where there is...

  • Fat Bike Adapter Recommendation for Thule T2 Classic Bike Rack TH9044
  • We have the fat tire adapter kit for your Thule T2 bike rack part # TH919. This comes with both cradles for your Thule T2 Classic part # TH9044 to fit a fat bike.

  • Best Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a Fat Bike
  • I have a solution for you, but the Kuat NV part # NV22G will only accommodate tires up to 4 inches in width. Instead check out the Thule T2 part # TH9044 and # TH919 that is very similar to the Kuat and can accommodate tires up to 5 inches wide. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. This rack also only touches the bikes at the tires like the NV.

  • What Bike Sizes Can the Thule T2 and Hollywood Racks Fat Bike Rack Fit
  • The Thule T2 Fat Bike Rack part # TH9044 and # TH919 that you referenced can fit wheel sized from 20" to 29", tire widths of up to 5 inches, and wheelbases of up to 48 inches. If your bike fits that criteria this rack should work well for you. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Can Thule DoulbeTrack Platform Rack Fit Fat Bike Tires
  • The Thule DoubleTrack, part # TH990XT, holds tires up to 3 inches wide and unfortunately there aren't any adapters to increase that for fat tires. The new version of the rack, the DoubleTrack Pro # TH9054, fits up to 5 inch fat tires.

  • Fat Tire Adapter for a Thule 2 Bike Platform Rack
  • The only Thule rack that has a fat tray upgrade is the Thule T2, and is available as part # TH919. This is compatible with models that have been discontinued. Beyond this, the Thule racks normally are compatible with up to 4 inch wide wheels.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 59 lb Fat Bikes with 5 inch Wide Tires
  • The Thule # TH903202 EasyFold bike rack is primarily designed for electric or downhill mountain bikes, if the tires on your fat bike are 3 inches wide or less, the Thule EasyFold would work great for you. However since you have 5 inch tires you will need to go a different route. The Thule T2 # TH9044 with Fat Tire adapters part # TH919 would be a great option as this rack can accommodate tires up to 5 inches in width and up to 60 lbs.
