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 Bike Rack for 2017 Toyota Prius Prime with Toyota Crossbars
  • We do offer a wide selection of roof bike racks that should work great with the Toyota crossbars on your 2017 Toyota Prius Prime. 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. I recommend looking at the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack # RRRBC050. This is a wheel mount carrier that will let you transport one bike without having...

  • 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....

  • Will a Yakima HighRoller Bike Rack Fit Thule AeroBlade Bars without Using MightyMounts
  • 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....

The Jetline will only work with bikes that have a quick-release front wheel. It does feature a locking option by adding two lock cores # RKY0332. For another channel mount bike carrier that uses T-slots the Thule ProRide # TH598003 is a frame mount that doesn't require the front wheel to be removed. It uses a padded clamp that holds your bike...

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.

A very popular option that allows you to keep the front wheel on your bike is the Thule ProRide part # TH598003 which is a great option. Or if you prefer the style of rack that attaches to the forks of the bike you would want the Thule Paceline part # TH527 which is a popular rack as well.

This rack will allow you to keep you bike's front wheel on when transporting the bike. Thule also offer a Fat Bike version # TH598003-FB that can accept tire widths up to 5-inches.

That will limit you to a roof rack option to carry your bikes. My recommendation is the Thule Roof Rack consisting of Thule AeroBlade Load Bars - Aluminum - Black - 53" - Qty 2, # THARB53B and the Thule Rapid Crossroad Roof Mounted Railing Foot Pack # TH450R.

  • Will Old Honda Branded Thule Bike Rack Fit Crossbars on a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • While I do believe you are correct about the Honda bike rack being a Thule in disguise the mounting hardware # TH7533263 won't work because it will not fit the crossbars on your 2017 Subaru Outback. It is designed for Thule square bars that are 1-1/4 inches wide. In order to use the rack you have you would need this hardware kit and the Ride-On adapter # TH532. You could go with a new bike rack that is a direct fit such as the ProRide # TH598003 or the Sidearm # TH594XT.

The AeroBlade design on these 53 inch crossbars will produce one of the quietest roof racks on the market and provide a weight capacity of 165 pounds. As you mentioned in your question, Thule is a top-of-the-line manufacturer of roof racks and accessories and they are well known for the durability and precise fit of their products....

Many racks cannot fit around the thicker crossbars, so I recommend the Thule ProRide Roof Bike Rack - Frame Mount - Clamp On or Channel Mount - Aluminum # TH598003 which is confirmed to fit.

  • Best Way to Haul 3 bikes on a 2009 Audi A4 Avant
  • I do have a few different solutions for you to be able to carry three bikes on your 2009 Audi A4, but using a hitch mounted 3 bike rack is not the way we want to approach this. The reason that using a 3 bike rack is not advisable on a Class I hitch has to do with the weight distribution. Any bike rack that holds more than two bikes tends to stick out a little further from the hitch to accommodate the three bikes. If we load a 3rd bike on a Class I hitch it could end up doing some damage...

  • How Many Xadapt Kits are Needed for 2 Thule Criterium Bike Racks
  • You would need 1 Xadapt8 kit per bike rack but I have a better solution that will end up costing you less money. The Criterium bike rack is actually being discontinued. Its replacement is the Thule ProRide # TH598003. The rack itself costs a little more but you do not need to add any Xadapt kit to mount it which ends up saving you a little cash! I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

  • Since we do not offer any hitches for your 2016 BMW 328i xdrive your bike carrying options are roof-rack-mount carriers and trunk-mount bike racks. No one bike carrier can handle four bikes on your specific vehicle so you will need to put some on the roof and some on a truck-mount rack. Trunk-mount bike racks top out at 3-bike capacity and you can see all 2- and 3-bike options on the linked page. The one I suggest is the Thule Raceway PRO 2-bike rack # TH9001PRO which mounts using four...

  • 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.

The maximum frame width your crossbar can be is 3-1/2" for this rack to fit around your bike, so you are well within the width limit for this bike rack to fit your crossbar. This bike rack fits on most round, square, aero, elliptical and factory crossbars. If you do not have a roof rack, if you let me know the year,...

  • If you have a set of Thule square bars the Thule BigMouth part # TH599XTR will fit them directly. We have a similar Thule bike rack that does fit the factory crossbars of your 2016 Honda CR-V but the BigMouth only fits round or square crossbars. The Thule ProRide part # TH598003 will fit your crossbars and will give you a very nice bike rack that grabs the bikes at the frame and allows the front wheel to be left on the bike.

  • Will the Thule ProRide Bike Rack Fit on the Yakima MegaWarrior Cargo Basket
  • The Thule ProRide bike rack # TH598003 will fit the Yakima MegaWarrior cargo basket # Y07080. But because the rack would have to clamp to the basket bars you would need to move the crossbar on top of the basket as far forward as you can so you would have to remove the basket's fairing to mount the rack. I have included links to videos on the MegaWarrior and ProRide for you.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Subaru Outback Towing Trailer

  • Thule Roof Bike Rack Recommendation that Can Attach to Crossbars of Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack
  • For a Thule bike rack that holds the bikes by grabbing the frame the Thule ProRide part # TH598003 would be the best choice with the Thule Xsporter # TH500XT since it can attach to the top channel of the crossbars. There isn't an adapter that allows the Sidearm you referenced to fit a crossbar channel and the Xsporter has crossbars that are too thick for the mounting hardware to fit around.

  • Availability of Thule Fork Mounted Bike Rack Similar to ProRide
  • We have similar Thule bike racks that secure the front of the bike by the front fork, but we do not have a way to convert the ProRide to that style. The Thule Circuit XT part # TH526XT is a very similar fork mount style that would work really well.

  • What are Most Roof Rack Crossbar Spreads for Vehicles to Carry a Bike Rack
  • Between roof rack rails? Typically roof rack crossbar spreads are right around 30 inches apart measured on center with a rack like the part # SR1020. The Thule ProRide part # TH598003 would fit this rack well. It has a crossbar spread compatibility of between 18 and 36 inches.

  • 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 Wheel-On # TH593 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. The Thule ProRide # TH598003 holds the bike frame while the Rhino-Rack Hybrid # RRRBC050 holds the bike at the wheels. I have linked video reviews of both of these racks...

  • 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.

  • The max crossbar spread the Upshift 2 part # SR4883RP will fit is 34 inches so it would not fit your spread of 38 inches. For a similar frame mount bike rack we have the Thule ProPride part # TH598003 which is a confirmed fit for your 2009 Nissan Pathfinder and holds the bike at the frame.

  • Availability of Thule Roof Bike Rack that Can Attach to Top Channel Mount of Ladder Rack Crossbar
  • The crossbars in the picture look to be pretty thick. Are they ladder rack bars? We have found that most ladder racks have bars that are too thick. I attached a link to the install instructions for the Criterium though. Is there a channel on the top of the bars? There might be a way to install a different rack that uses a channel mount like the Thule ProRide # TH598003 which is very similar but can mount in the top channel of a crossbar.
