Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack THXADAPT9 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Thule load bar adaptor for the Peloton and Echelon bike racks. This allows you to mount your bike racks to Thule load bars with channels such as the AeroBlade, AeroBlade Edge, Rapid Aero for the Xporter truck racks.It includes the adaptor and necessary mounting, the hardware. This metal bracket right here is coated with a rubber so it does not scratch or damage anything that it comes into contact with. And it comes with the included hardware here. So we have the metal bracket. We have the square-head bolts and we have the mounting nuts.And then the instructions are detailed.

They walk you through step-by-step. The whole process for getting it installed, so you got step one and two right there on the front page. Flip it over and it completes the process. It looks like a six-step process, so there's three, four and five and there's step six.So it walks you through the installation process step-by-step and again this allows you to mount your bike rack to the Thule load bars with channels, such as the AeroBlade, AeroBlade Edge, Rapid Aero for the Xporter truck rack.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Thule load bar Adaptor Kit for the Peloton and Echelon bike racks.

Just the part I needed, and fast shipping. Definitely recommend this

I used the adapter to fit a Thule Peloton bike carrier (previously used with square Thule load bars) to the factory roof rack on our Mini Clubman. The adapter works out well in this application; the only thing to note is that re-using the round-head bolts that came with the Peloton carrier with the thick vinyl-coated bracket in this adapter kit results in VERY little room to fit the nuts that hold the bracket on -- it just about works, and seems to do so safely, but it is a very tight fit.

The Thule Bike Rack Adaptor to go from square bars to aero cross bars was an easy purchase. Otherwise, I would have had to two new bike racks. It saved me a lot of money! etrailer.com was a great place to buy the needed parts, and they were quick with shipping them to me. I watched their video on the installation, and within an hour, both racks were installed and ready to go. Thanks etrailer.com for easy transaction.

I used this kit to fit my Thule Peloton to my OEM VW aero rails. This kit will also work for other aero rails - which have the distinctive feature of having a T-slot. Keep in mind that for this kit to work, you need to have all of the original bike carier components. Check the fit kit instructions. In addition to the pictured components, you need two bolts, two plates, and two knob fasteners that come with the bike carrier originally.

The Thule adapter worked perfectly! I am able to use the Prologue bike rack on the Thule aero bars from the Subaru accessories catalogue. I really appreciate the help! Thanks...Chris

Fast shipping and a great supplier for this type of part for Thule racks. Thanks



- THXADAPT9
by:

Almost what I expected. The bolts were too short. I was able to improvise with the existing parts and these new ones to complete my installation.



- THXADAPT9
by:

The square head screws were not long enough at all. I ended up only getting to use half of my order and making my racks work by using screws from an old rack. The transition didn't go exactly as I had hoped.

Wow. As always, the hard to find parts are in your inventory. Thanks

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


Adapter works perfectly on 2020 Audi Q5 (VW) But didn’t need all the xtra hardware for Thule Big Mouth bike rack. (Ca 2003) . 3 of the short bolts per unit did the trick and of course the rubber inlays to prevent scratching and rattling are perfect.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


I used the XADAPT2 kit to convert my Thule Bigmouth bike carriers to fit the OEM Volkswagen cross bars on my 2016 Jetta sedan. The bike carriers originally had clamps to fit the Thule square cross bars, and this kit allowed me to convert the carriers to fit in the T-slots of the VW cross bars. The kit was originally designed for older VWs, but the T-slot dimensions have not changed for the modern VW cross bars. I would venture to guess that the kit should work for the OEM cross bars of any modern VW rather than just the Jetta, since the VW bike carriers are not model specific. A great quality kit, and perfect for my application!

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


I used this to fit an old (1994) Thule Big Mouth bike rack to a factory 1994 VW Jetta Votex roof rack. The bike rack was originally fitted to a Thule square tube rack. Fits perfect, but has many extra parts. The only parts that were needed my me were 3 square plastic tabs and 3 of the "T" bolts, so there are many left overs, but for the price I don't think I can complain much. I'm glad the kit was available. Instructions were pretty useless.

Very good quality product with a little problem. Track is connected to a bracket by one bolt and the bolt was getting loose. I had to buy a little bit longer bolt, use a spring washer and washer, problem solved. See picture. Assembly instructions could be better.

Awesome easy to order and track. Great support from the company. Easy to track your package from order to delivery.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


These bolts should be included in the Thule Kayak carrier kit, since the kit claims to fit factory roof racks with 2" diameter cross-bars. They won't fit unless you have these longer bolts.
