Thule Front Wheel Holder - Roof Mount - Folding - Clamp On - TH98BV

Average Customer Rating:  4.0 out of 5 stars   (2 Customer Reviews)

Convenient wheel fork lets you transport your bike's front wheel on your roof rack to free up space inside your vehicle. No more putting a wet or muddy wheel in your trunk or back seat.


I have a fork mount roof carrier and don't want to carry my wheel inside the car. This Thule wheel carrier is nicely designed, secure, and includes a cable lock (not mentioned in the video). I also purchased a thru-axle quick release for my bikes with disc brakes. This fits my factory Toyota aero roof rack perfectly.


The securing mechanism definitely needs some re-design work.

  • Roof Mounted Bike Tire Carrier when Using a Fork Mount Bike Carrier
    You could stow the front wheel of your bike inside the vehicle when using the Thule FastRide bike carrier # TH95JV. While there are tire carriers such as # TH98BV they are designed for quick release wheels from 24" to 29". If it were me I would place the tire in the trunk of the vehicle.

  • Where to Store Front Bike Wheels when Using Roof Bike Racks on a 2016 Ford Focus
    The short answer is that when using a fork mounted roof bike rack the front wheels will have to go wherever you can put them. Or you could use the Thule Front Wheel Carrier # TH98BV which will also mount to a roof rack and hold the front wheel of a bike. Another option is to use a bike rack that holds the bike at the frame or wheel. For example the Rhino-Rack Hybrid # RRRBC050 holds the bike at the wheels. I have linked video reviews of both of these racks for you.

  • Is the Malone AirFlow2 Easy to Remove
    The only time that you really need to remove the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 is if you were to take your 2021 Subaru Crosstrek through an automatic car wash where the machinery could damage the roof rack. Aside from that you can leave them installed all the time and you'll have more than enough clearance to open up your sunroof. Most manufacturers encourage people not to use the sunroof just to be on the safe side but really I've only seen potential clearance issues maybe twice but...

  • Solution for Securing Front Bike Wheels with Truck Bed Bike Rack
    The Thule Front Wheel Carrier # TH98BV that you referenced may physically fit the crossbar for the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack # S64701 but I can't recommend doing this. The Swagman Patrol isn't designed to support this type of carrier and since they haven't been tested together I can't guarantee it will keep the wheel in place during trips. The Thule Front Wheel Carrier is designed to mount to standard roof rack crossbars that can handle a lot more weight and have a more secure attachment...

  • Will the Thule Roof-Mounted Bike Carrier Fit 2006 Hummer H3 With Factory Crossbars
    The item you selected, Thule Roof-Mounted Bike Carrier, part # TH859XT is designed to work with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars so it could work on your Hummer. A Roof Mounted Bike Carrier I would recommend that would work with your Hummer, is the Fork Style Roof Mounted Bike Rack, part # S64710 . This bike carrier fits factory cross bars and will work great on your 2006 Hummer H3 with roof rack rail cross bars. Part # S64710, is similar to the Rola Roof-Mounted...

  • Roof Mount Bike Wheel Carrier that Works with Thru Axle Wheels
    Yes, for a thru-axle adapter that's compatible with the Thule Front Wheel Holder # TH98BV you need the Thru-Axle Skewer Adapter # TH48BV which replaces a 9-mm and works with 12-mm, 15-mm, and 20-mm thru-axles. The Yakima Adapter # Y02110 will work as well if that's the route you'd rather go. If you're looking for a wheel carrier that can be bolted to a truck bed then I recommend checking out the SeaSucker Add-On Wheel Holder # 298-BA1370. It's designed around the SeaSucker Bomber and...

  • How To Carry 4 Bikes On a 2006 Toyota Sequoia With Raised Side Rails
    In order to carry four bikes on the roof of a 2006 Toyota Sequoia with factory side rails you'll need to go with a roof rack which has longer crossbars, the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar System part # TH711420 part # TH710401 would be perfect. Then to hold the bikes, you have quite a few options to choose from but the Thule FastRide Roof Bike Rack part # TH95JV is what I recommend. Keep in mind you'd need to offset every other carrier. For a wheel carrier, we have the Thule Front Wheel Carrier...

  • Roof Carrier for Bike Wheels on a 2015 Toyota Highlander with Factory Bars
    For your roof bike racks, if you have 9mm quick release skewers, you can use the SeaSucker Hogg, part # 298-BA1580 to replace a bolt of your rear axle and carry your front wheel in line with your bike's rear tires. This carrier includes a stabilizing strap to hold your wheel steady while you're driving and keep it from spinning. Or, if you'd rather not replace a bolt, or have a larger skewer, then Thule's Front Wheel Carrier # TH98BV can be used to carry your bike wheel side-by-side with...

  • Need Thule Replacement Carriage Bolt with Larger Square Shank for Rooftop Cargo Box
    The Thule Replacement M6 x 60 mm Carriage Bolt # 915-0660-31 that you referenced is intended for use with a specific kayak carrier, the Stacker # TH830. It also works with their roof-mount bike wheel carrier # TH98BV. Thule offers a range of other similar replacement carriage bolts for other applications, such as # TH915-0675-11 which is a 75mm long bolt with a square shank that measures 0.238-inches. Their part # TH10403 is a fully-threaded 75mm bolt designed for their Adventurer Cargo...

  • Roof-Rack-Mount Bike Wheel Holder for Factory Roof Rack on 2011 Audi Q5
    The Saris Bike Wheel Holder for Traps Single Track # SAWHL1 is intended for use with their Triple Track (parts # SATRK33 and # SATRK34) and Single Track ( # SATRK14) bike carriers. It is not meant for use on a vehicle's roof rack crossbars. For a wheel carrier that can install on most aftermarket and factory roof racks you can instead use Thule part # TH98BV or Yakima part # Y02108.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Bike Rack for 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    I have 2 different recommendations for a roof rack on your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser depending on if you have a naked roof or raised rails on your FJ Cruiser. Naked Roof 54" Vortex Aero Crossbars - # RRVA137B-2 RCH Legs - # RRRCH4 Fit Kit - # RRRCP25-BK Raised Rails AirFlow2 Roof Rack - # MPG215 Then for a bike rack I recommend using 2 of the RockyMounts TieRod Roof Mounted Bike Carrier # RKY1012. This is a fork mount bike rack so you'll need to remove your front wheels but in my experience...
