This is a replacement for a unit that I had for years but wrecked on a low clearance mistake (ouch!) when carrying my bike on top of our Honda Element with E-Camper. I expect it will do just fine - I don't mind adding tie-down bracing with straps so have never moved up to the fancier car top units for carrying bikes (my main carrier for years has been a custom arrangement in my Tacoma bed using skewers mounted on my tool box lid) 299798

  • Replacement Wheel Strap for Thule Prologue XT Roof Bike Rack
  • Wheel Strap # 853-7006 will not work with your Thule Prologue XT Roof Bike Rack # TH516XT you will need to use Wheel Strap Assembly # 753-3001. The reason for that is the way the strap assembly attaches; as you can see by the accompanying photo of this strap assembly on the Prologue XT it has a specific mounting attachment that the other strap does not have.

  • Is There An Adapter To Use the Thule Prologue XT On a 2018 Honda Odyssey with Factory Roof Rack
  • Yes, in order to install the Thule Prologue XT Roof Bike Rack part # TH516XT on your 2018 Honda Odyssey with factory roof rack you will need the Thule Ride-On Adapter part # TH532.

  • How To Use a Thule XT Roof Bike Rack with Fat Tire Bike
  • There are a few different Thule Roof Bike Racks with "XT" in the title so I am not sure if you are referring to Thule Circuit XT part # TH526XT, Thule Prologue XT part # TH516XT, or Thule ProRide XT part # TH598004. If you have the ProRide XT then you are in luck as you can obtain the Fat Tire Adapter Kit part # TH5981 to carry a bike with tires up to 5" wide. That said, if you have the Circuit XT or Prologue XT there is no way to use either of these with a fat tire bike so your only option...

  • What Adapter is Needed for Thule Prologue Roof Mounted Bike Carrier to Fit Thule AeroBlade Crossbars
  • The Thule Prologue XT Roof Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # TH516XT is not directly compatible with Thule Aeroblade crossbars. There is not a t-track style adapter compatible so you will need to use the Thule Ride-On Adapter # TH532 to make it fit. You may also want to consider the Thule Wheel-On Roof Mounted Bike Wheel Carrier # TH593.

  • Will the Thule Prologue XT Roof Bike Rack # TH516XT Fit a 2018 Mini Countryman w/Factory Roof Rack
  • In order to use the Thule Prologue XT Roof Bike Rack # TH516XT on the factory crossbars on your 2018 Mini Countryman you would need to use adapter # THXADAPT9 as long as the bars are not wider than 3-3/4 inches and have an accessory channel at the top. Yakima has the ForkLift # Y02098 that is listed as a fit for sure for the factory roof rack on the 2018 Mini Countryman. What size fork does your bike have? This Yakima rack is for 9mm forks.

  • 4 Bike Hitch Mount Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Volkswagen Passat Wagon
  • There is a way to put 4 bikes on your 2008 VW Passat Wagon, but a 4-Bike hitch mounted rack will not work for you. The reason it will not work is that it designed to work on vehicles that have Class II hitches, and only Class I hitches are made for 2008 VW Passats. Currently there is not a Class I hitch that will support a 4 four bike rack. What I would recommend you do is purchase a 2 bike rack like the Thule Helium 2 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Hitches - Tilting - Hitch...

  • Thule Roof Mounted Bike Rack That is Compatible With Disc Brakes
  • There is a roof-mounted bike rack from Thule that is compatible with disc brakes but the Thule Prologue XT Roof Bike Rack # TH516XT is not. Instead, I recommend checking out the Thule OutRide Roof Bike Rack # TH561020 because it is compatible with disc brakes, is easy to install and will cushion your bike as it is being transported. The OutRide weighs just 5-1/2 lbs so you can very easily lift it on top of your roof and you can clamp it on your crossbars or mount it to T-slots. This...

  • Roof Rack and Thule Prologue Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 GMC Terrain
  • If you do not have a roof rack with cross bars that run from side to side on your 2011 GMC Terrain you will need to get the Thule roof rack # TH45050. For a roof top bike rack for the top of your vehicle that uses a fork mount to attach to the bike to the rack you would want a Thule Prologue XT Bike Rack # TH516XT. This rack is lockable. If your previous rack attaches to your bike with both wheels being on the bike you should have more clearance to open the hatch of your vehicle with...
