Video Transcript for Thule ProRide Roof Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to taking a look at the Thule Pro Ride Roof Bike Rack, which is a clamp on, or channel mount version, part number TH598003. The Thule Pro Ride is a roof bike rack that can carry up to one bike. It doesn't require any wheel removal, and it grips your bike by the frame. It also has wheel straps for both tires. To make sure we don't over torque our clamp onto our frame, we have this torque-limiting dial to tighten it down with. Also, we have this area here, which you can insert a lock core, so once this is tightened down, you can lock it into place, and secure your bike to the bike rack. The wheel straps are ratcheting wheel straps, meaning when you loosen them up a little bit, they'll ratchet it down into place.

Can either use the channel mount version, which is what we have now, or you can install a clamp style, and that's going to fit with your square bars, some aluminum bars, and some factory roof racks as well. Now, another nice feature about this torque-limiting dial, is once you're finished using the bike, you want to take it off, to release the clamp, all you have to do, is there's a gray button underneath here that you push down, and that will release is. Now, how this actually tightens down to your roof rack, is it clamps into place, like so, and the clamp in the front here, notice it also has a cut out for a Thule lock core. Once you install this to your roof rack, you can install the lock core, and it will be secure to your rack as well. Everything is tightened down. Just push it in place, and it's ready to go. Also, both wheel cradles are adjustable the length of the bike rack, to accommodate difference size bikes.

The bike rack itself is made from a lightweight anodized aluminum, so it is corrosion resistant. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty. This is also able to carry fat bikes, with a fat bike adaptor, part number TH5981, which is also sold separately. This will also enable you to carry one bike with up to five inch wide tires. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the bike rack, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. Now, there's two ways you can do that. You can either go by channel mount, or by clamp on.

Now, since we actually have arrow bars already installed on our vehicle, we'll go ahead and show you the channel mount way first. It mounts into the channels with these square bolts here. We'll have two at the front, and then one at the rear. To install it, we'll first remove the rubber strips at the top of our arrow bars. Normally, you would put the accessory into place and then cut the strips to put it around it, but for demonstration purposes, we'll just take them out for the install. We'll begin to slide in our bolts here.

Now, the rear bolt is adjustable to accommodate different widths of cross bars. We'll line up our bolts, just push this into place. Then we'll go around to the front and make sure it's straight before we tighten it down. With our bike rack where we want it, we'll close up our end caps. We'll start to tighten down our clamps here. Just turn them to the right. We'll try it out every now and then, just to make sure it's not too tight, or too loose. We'll repeat this for our other clamps as well. Now, we're ready to install our bike. Now that we've shown you how to attach this with the channel mounts, we'll go ahead and show you the clamp on style, as well. We'll first remove our channel mounts here. Simply unscrew the channel mounts. I'm going to repeat this for the other channel mounts. Now we'll take our clamps, and put them through the two openings here, and the one off to the side as well. We'll slide it in like so, til it fits into place, and we'll do this first at all of our connection points. Then we'll take our T-screws, attach them to our plastic clamps. We'll have to put them up through the bottom first, like so, and then attach them. Again, we'll repeat this for the other three clamps. Now, the two longer T-bolts go in the front, and the shorter one's going to go in the rear. We'll just loosely install them for now, just to hold them in place. Now, you notice at the rear here, we have two holes. The one here is specifically marked for the channel mount, so for our clamps, the screw will go through the second hole. Now we'll set out bike into place, sure clamps go around the bar. Some adjustments in the rear here, push that into place, and we'll go up towards the front and make sure it's straight. Once we're sure it's straight, we can actually start tightening it down. We'll take our T-bolt, put our clamp over our T-bolt like so. Then we'll just simply start tightening it down. Make sure that the T-bolt is lined up, like so, then like before, we can just simply tighten it down, until it's nice and tight around our bar. All right, we'll repeat this for our other brackets. Now, we got our bike rack prepped to put our bike into place. We'll start with our wheel straps here. You'll push at the bottom of the tabs here to release those on both sides. Then we'll lift up our clamp. Now we can grab our bike. Now, we'll place our bike onto our rack. Making sure it's in this position. Now, to tighten the clamp down, you come to this knob here, and turn it to the right. All right. That's good. Now, I'll adjust our wheel cradles. Put our strap through. Now, the nice thing about these straps, is that they're ratchet straps, so they just ratchet down into place. All right, that's good. Now, we'll repeat that process for the rear tire. All right, our bike is secure, and now we're ready to hit the road. First we'll take it onto our slalom course. This will show you the side-to-side action, such as making turns, or evasive maneuvers. Now we're at the alternating speed bumps, this will show you how it looks driving on uneven pavement, or potholes. Finally, we're at the solid speed bumps, which simulates going into your driveway, or parking lots. There you have it for the Thule Pro Ride Roof Bike Rack, part number TH598003.

Assembled first the fit kit, the foot packs, and load bar. Then a few days latter the ProRide bike carriers with only one lock per bike carrier. Both my 29" mt. bike and my road bike fit securely and without any discernable wind noise. With the included written instructions being primarily pictures, I would have been lost. Fortunately, a number of retailers had posted youtube assembly videos that were great! Having owned a number of bike racks with my many cars, I was imppressed with the comparative quality of all the rack components. The only reason I gave it a 4 rating instead of a 5, is because [of Thule pricing policies]...I had no choice because it is the only rack that would fit my Focus RS. 368728

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Bike Rack for 2016 Mini Cooper
  • I have some great options for transporting bikes with your 2016 Mini Cooper. If you are looking for a roof mounted bike rack, you will first need a roof rack that is compatible with your vehicle. I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Traverse Aero Bar Roof Rack, which consists of # THARB47B for the two 47 inch crossbars, # TH480R for the Rapid Traverse Foot Pack and # THKIT1770 for the Fit Kit. This system is confirmed to fit with the naked roof (no existing rails or crossbars) on your Mini...

  • Can Roof-Mount Bike Racks Attach to Rooftop Cargo Basket on 2010 Kia Soul with Thule Rack Installed
  • As a starting point I suggest a check of your Soul's owner's manual to verify the vehicle's roof weight bearing capacity. There should be a maximum rooftop cargo weight figure in your manual or at the very least available from your local Kia dealership. I suggest this since you are considering a combination of rooftop cargo items that could present a significant load on the vehicle. A roof rack like the Thule square bar system for your Soul, part # TH45050, does not weigh too much on...

Based on my research, it looks like the Toyota bars for your vehicle are aero style design and you will just want to make sure that the bike rack you choose will fit over their dimensions and crossbar spread.

The Big Mouth Bike rack you mentioned has been discontinued and although we have some replacement parts, we don't have the bike rack itself.

Additionally, it includes an adapter kit to be mounted to the roof rack directly. Sometimes its' appropriate to have a different kind of mount depending on your bike.

And there is also a system with new AeroBlade bars. If cost is an issue, then going with a square bar system will be the way to go. You will need the following parts: Bars, # THLB50 Foot Pack, # TH480 Fit Kit, # THKIT1618 You can also add a fairing, # TH8702 For bike racks that will fit this system, I would go with the...

  • There isn't a kit to use the Yakima HighRoller # Y02107 in the mounting slots on Thule AeroBlade crossbars. The Xadapt12 kit will work with the Thule bars but is not a confirmed fit for the bike rack. You might consider the FrontLoader # Y02103 which is also a wheel mount bike rack but the mounting feet will fit around the AeroBlade bars without the need of any adapters. Or, for a frame mount bike rack that will fit the Thule AeroBlade channels you can use the ProRide, # TH598003....

  • All of the bike racks you have selected are excellent models that would do a great job hauling bikes. The problem lies in that your 2003 Honda Accord Sedan only has Class I hitches available. With a Class I hitch only the Thule Vertex 4 Bike Carrier, item # TH9029XT, will work on your vehicle and will only be able to carry two bikes, due to the low tongue weight capacity of the vehicle and hitch.

What you will need to do is install a roof rack on your X3 and use 3 roof mounted bike racks. The roof racks we have available for the 2010 X3 are only compatible with the X3 models that feature the raised side rails.

  • How Stable is Thule Big Mouth Frame Mount Roof Bike Rack Compared to Wheel Mount Racks
  • In terms of stability a frame mount bike rack like the Thule Big Mouth # TH599XTR the bike will move with the rack more than a tire mount. But based on where a frame mount rack holds the bike it can have more movement (the rack and bike as a whole) than a fork mount or tire mount. The Thule ProRide # TH598003 would be even more stable because it has a wider stance. The wider the stance the more stable the rack will be. Of course with any roof mount rack there is going to be some movement....

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen
  • No, on a Class I trailer hitch like # 24866, you are limited to carrying 2 bikes on a rack that is designed to fit in a Class I trailer hitch. The reason you are limited to just 2 bikes is because the hitch cannot handle the torque associated with carrying more than 2 bikes. Having a third and fourth bike on a rack would be too much weight too far away from the receiver. This weight provides a lot of stress on the receiver and is even greater when you are traveling and there is movement...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 4 Bikes with 2018 Subaru Forester with Factory Hitch
  • The Subaru 1-1/4 inch hitches are tricky to fit bike racks too but Thule has come out and stated that they were able to install their Vertex part # TH9028XT in the Subaru hitch and it fit and worked well so it would be the hitch we recommend to carry 2 of your bikes. Then for a bike rack to fit your factory crossbars the Thule ProRide part # TH598003 would be a great option for each of the remaining two bikes.

  • Trailer Hitch, Bike Rack, and Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2009 Honda Fit Sport
  • I do have a bike rack solution for you. However, all of the trunk mount bike rack options for a 2009 Honda Fit exclude the Sport model because of the rear spoiler on the vehicle. A trunk mount bike rack cannot be safely installed. What you can do is install a trailer hitch, # 24826, and use a trailer hitch mount bike rack. Because all of the available hitches for your vehicle are Class I hitches, you will be limited to carrying a maximum of 2 bikes on a hitch. For a bike rack, I...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for Carrying 5 Bikes with a 2011 Mazda CX-9
  • We typically recommend against using a bike adapter for a 1-1/4 inch to allow it to carry a bike rack designed for hitches with 2 inch openings. The reason for this is that it will cut the capacity of the hitch in half and therefore make the bike rack capable of carrying even less weight. This would be counter-productive as it would most likely damage your hitch. You would be better off using a Class II bike rack to transport 4 bikes and then if you need to transport a fifth bike to put...

  • Roof Rack and Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2012 Hyundai Veloster
  • First off, this is definitely not a stupid question! As long as you had the weight capacity (roof rack capacity and vehicle roof capacity) for the weight of the 4 bikes you plan on carrying what you are wanting to do is possible. For that I would recommend a rack with a higher weight capacity than the Rola Roof Rack part # 59726 that you referenced because it has a capacity of 110 lbs which would probably not be enough. Your best option would be to get a Thule square bar rack since...

  • Recommendation to Transport 4 Bikes with 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon OEM Hitch
  • As you mentioned in your question, the factory trailer hitches on your Subaru Outback are known to have compatibility issues with many hitch-mounted accessories. This is because the hitch pin hole on the receiver is located very close to the actual receiver opening. This makes it difficult for many racks to slide into the receiver enough to be properly locked into place. You were also correct in stating that Class I trailer hitches can only carry a maximum of 2 bikes. These hitches...

  • Hitch and Roof Bike Rack Options for 2003 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S
  • Your options for bike racks for your 2003 VolksWagen Beetle Turbo S consist of trunk mount carriers like the Thule Raceway 2, part # TH9001PRO, and roof-mount types. Your 2003 VW Beetle Turbo S is not compatible with rear hitch receivers (only the standard turbo model can be fitted with a hitch). I have provided a link to our product page showing compatible trunk-mount carriers, including the Raceway 2 and others from Thule and Yakima. The Raceway 2, part # TH9001PRO, is an excellent...

  • Will the Thule T2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Mini Countryman
  • Provided that you have a trailer hitch on your 2012 Mini Countryman then you could potentially use the Thule T2, # TH917XTR. We currently do not offer a hitch option for the vehicle but your local Mini dealer may have an option. If you do have a trailer hitch then the rack will fit as long as there is less than 7-7/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole and the back of the vehicle. To fit when folded up there would need to be less than 3-1/2 inches from hitch pin hole to the...

  • Roof Rack Bike Rack for a Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Thule Sidearm, # TH594XT, will fit the Xsporter ladder rack # TH500XT without the need for other accessories or adapters. If you'd rather have a frame mount rack, the ProRide, part # TH598003 will provide that mounting system with similar features to the Sidearm. All other Thule racks require removing the front wheel to mount the bikes. I have linked instructions and some videos for you.

  • Thule Roof Bike Rack to Fit 2016 Tesla Model S with Whispbar Roof Rack and 2016 Mercedes E400
  • The Thule Criterium part # TH598 will work for both of your vehicles but will require you use the adapter part # Xadapt8 as long as your Mercedes bars have built in channels on top of them. Otherwise the easiest solution would be the Thule ProRide part # TH598003 which is a similar frame mounted bike rack that would fit both without the use of an adapter.

  • Roof Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Ford Focus
  • I checked with Thule and the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier # TH910XT is confirmed to fit your 2012 Ford Focus hatchback. The only problem is that this is a trunk mounted bike rack that will partially rest on the back glass of your vehicle. The only option I have that could work for you would be a roof rack mounted bike rack since you said you do not want to use a hitch rack or one that mounts on the rear glass of your vehicle. To complete a roof rack on your 2012 Ford Focus you will...
