Thule UpRide Installed On Car

The UpRide wheel-mount bike rack lets you transport 1 fat bike of nearly any size or frame style on your roof rack crossbars. The adjustable hook and cage make it easy to load your bike without removing your front wheel. It makes no contact with your bike's frame so it's perfect for carbon frame bikes. The rear-wheel cradle slides along the tray to accommodate your bike's wheelbase. And you can add One-Key System locks to the integrated cable and front mounting lever to secure your bike to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.

Quick and Easy Loading

Thule UpRide Padded Hook - Ajustable Settings Thule UpRide Padded Hook

The UpRide lets you quickly and easily load your bike. The wheel hook has 5 settings to accommodate common tire sizes. To set the hook for your wheel simply pull the knob and slide it to your desired setting. Set your bike's front wheel in the cradle and roll it up against the hook. The hook holds your bike upright so your hands are free to finish the loading process.

Thule UpRide Wheel Cage

With the hook holding your wheel in place you can raise the wheel cage up and ratchet it against your tire until it's snug. The wheel cage puts downward pressure on the wheel as it sits in the cradle to ensure that your bike does not shift during transport. The hook, the wheel cage, and the cradle make no contact with your bike frame so it's the rack perfect for carbon frame bikes.

Thule UpRide Folded Down

The hook and wheel cage have release buttons so you can fold them down when you're not transporting your bike. This increases overhead clearance and allows the rack to remain installed when you are parking in a garage or other low-clearance area.

Sliding Rear-Wheel Cradles

Thule UpRide Sliding Rear Wheel Cradles

The rear-wheel cradle slides along the wheel tray to accommodate bikes of different lengths. It has a ratcheting strap that secures diagonally across the bike wheel. This creates more surface contact with the rim and improves stability when compared with standard cradle straps. To undo the strap simply press the quick-release button. Remove the long wheel strap and replace it with the included short strap to transport a standard size bike.

Easy Installation

Thule UpRide T-Channel Installation

The rack mounts to your crossbars with included T-rack hardware or clamps - no tools required. To install the rack using the T-tracks, just insert the short T-bolts into the bottom of the rack, slide the T-bolts into the channels on your crossbars, and tighten them down using the cam-action levers.

Thule UpRide Clamp-On Installation

You can also clamp the rack around your crossbars. Simply set the rack on your crossbars, slide the long T-bolts into the open ends of the mounting brackets, and tighten down the cam-action levers.

Optional Locks

Thule UpRide Locking Cable

You can add One-Key System lock cylinders (sold separately) to the integrated cable in the tray and to the front mounting assembly to secure your bike to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. These lock cores can be swapped out to make all your Thule accessories keyed alike.

Thule UpRide Locking Cable

To lock your bike to the rack simply slide the cable out, wrap it through your bike frame, and insert the cable tip into the lock hub.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (39 Customer Reviews)

This lightweight, easy-to-load rack lets you carry 1 fat bike of almost any size or frame style on your crossbars. A hook with presets for common wheel sizes and a ratcheting wheel cage hold your bike securely by the front wheel - no frame contact.


I dislike the way the handlebar needs to be reversed to fit the rack.
Lifting the bike to load it makes it awkward. It ended up in the corner of my garage. I take off the front wheel now and put it through the trunk because I foldable seat in the rear.


Fits fat bike like advertised with rear wheel adaptor. It’s a tight fit bit it works. I can use the rack for my MTB and road bikes as well.





Very easy to use (once you do it a couple of times). I have ebikes and they handled the weight (48lbs each). The biggest issue I have with this racking system is wishing there was a left and right models of it...unless I didn't see one when ordering.


Basically, bolt it to your rack and you're ready to go. Easy to use once you do it a few times. My only complaint is for $200 they could throw in a lock core. Also, this etrailer response is incorrect, it is actually pretty simple to swap the operation of the rack to work on the driver's side (without having your bike face the wrong direction). Two plastic locks hold the main assembly together, unlock, take the hook out and put in the other way. The loop thing at the front is held in by one allen bolt on the bottom; take it out, swap the direction. Finally, the rear tire strap slides out the back; reverse it and slide it on. It takes longer to put the carrier on /off your rack than to swap the direction (not more than 10 minutes).


It's a bit more complex than my older Thule rack that clamps to the bikes frame. It does mount securely and holds the bike fine. The security cable for locking your bike is a literal joke, the lock body is plastic, and the cable is so thin you can cut it with hand held wire cutters. Took a bit of time to flip the components to use on the driver's side of the car, but it was not hard to do. Doesn't cause as much wind noise as I anticipated fortunately. Unpleasantly learned it is incompatible with fenders, so I have to remove mine when using this rack. I'll probably sell the rack and get something different down the road.


These bike racks are the absolute best! The quality is amazing; the simplicity is second to none. I would highly recommend this rack.


The Thule parts are well made. Everything fit together perfectly. The only drawback is the cost and all of the extras that you have to get to install the rack system.
etrailer folks were perfect and supplied a list of extras that I would need to finish the installation. I have purchased items from them in the past and will continue to buy in the future.


Had this for two years now. It's okay. The best part about it: it fit my RHINO rack perfectly, and the install was simple considering it's a separate brand. It rests fairly quietly. I don't like the design that much, however, it is built for multiple sized wheels and bikes.

it rocks back and forth with a bike a bit too much, however, that again my be by design b/c of wind while you're on the freeway. Pretty easy to mount and dismount, especially if you're tall.


The rack keeps my bike safe and I drive at 80mph without noise, very easy to install and easy to place the bike


Excellent!! Mounted and ready to ride!!


Great service from etrailer and fast shipping. Bike rack was easy to assemble and install.


Excellent service and product as usual.


One of the racks I received was missing a plastic piece on the lock portion making it unusable.


I like the way this bike rack works and secures the bike. etrailer was fast to ship and everything arrived on time. I like their personal emails that update the status of purchases.


The channel connectors worked great with my OEM Mini Cooper Cross Bars. Very happy!


Ship time took a little longer than expected. Item boxes arrived damaged but prouduct was in good shape.


Thank etrailer for getting us this bike rack. It was very hard to find and you able to provide it to us when it was promised!


Thule upride bike ride arrived when promised and performed as expected.
Easy to install and use.
Great price and service from etrailer made it all the sweeter!


Easy to install and also easy to get your bike up.


excellent customer service, great commu nication



Product was 100% what I wanted and fast delivery

  • Will the SportRack Upshift Bike Rack # SR4883 Fit My Factory Crossbars on My 2019 Subaru Outback?
    I have a way for you to determine if the UpShift works on your vehicle. Unfortunately, Thule (the owners of Sportrack) do not have a definite confirmation as to whether the SportRack Upshift Roof Bike Rack - Frame Mount - Clamp On # SR4883 will attach to your factory crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon. However, as long as your crossbars measure no more than 3-1/2 inches wide, the Upshift will fit your crossbars. In order to make sure they fit, I recommend measuring the width of...

  • Can 3 Thule UpRide Bike Racks Fit on OEM Roof Rack for 2019 Subaru Outback
    The Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # TH599000-FB measures 13" wide at the widest point. I'm not sure how much space you have on the OEM rails for your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon but if you alternate which way the bikes are facing you may be able to squeeze 3 bikes on your roof rack since the widest part would be on opposite ends as well. If you can let me know how much space you have on your roof rack rails I can help you determine how many of the UpRide bike racks you can fit...

  • White Wheel Mount Roof Bike Rack Recommendation
    The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # RKY1201-FB is only available in black but for a white wheel-mount bike rack I recommend checking out the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # TH599000-FB instead. I've actually had the opportunity to install the standard tire version, part # TH599000, a few times so I'm attaching my video of this on a 2020 Audi Q7 for you to check out.

    The Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes - Wheel Mount - Clamp On or Channel Mount - Aluminum, part # TH599000-FB, will carry bikes with tire widths between 3" - 5". In addition, the wheel strap is longer on this UpRide for fat bikes. If you want to use one rack for two bikes, my solution would be to get the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On or Channel Mount - Aluminum, part # TH599000, which will work with traditional sized wheels. Then you should get the Fat Bike...

    Yes, the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # TH599000-FB will work with tires that are up to 5 inches wide, and is a wheel-mounted bike rack so you do not have to take off your tire when you load the bike on your roof. The UpRide will hold your bike very securely with a wheel cage and hook for the front wheel and ratchet strap for the rear wheel. You can mount it on your crossbars with its clamp system, or if your roof rack has a channel system (a T-slot), it can also mount that...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry Gazelle Arroyo E-Bike
    I really wish we had a great solution that would allow you to carry all of your bikes with one hitch bike rack, but the only rack we offer that will fit the frame style of your Gazelle Arroyo and has the weight capacity needed is the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 which is a two bike rack. It has the needed frame clamp style and weight capacity plus comes with a ramp to make loading/unloading easier. For the other two bikes you'd have to look into a roof rack mounted option like the...

  • Is a Roof Mounted Bike Rack a Good Choice for a Fat Tire E-Bike?
    Roof bike racks are a good way to save space at the back of your vehicle, but unless your e-bike is on the lighter end of things and you're able to confidently lift your heavy e-bike up on top of your vehicle's roof (even after a bike ride) I recommend going with a hitch mounted bike rack. Just to keep your options open I'll go ahead and recommend both roof and hitch mounted racks for you to choose from: Roof Bike Rack - Thule UpRide for Fat Bikes # TH599000-FB (up to 44 lb bike and 5"...

  • Highest Rated Roof Bike Rack that Could Carry E-Bike
    I wish we had a roof bike rack with a high enough weight capacity for your e-bike but the roof bike rack we offer with the highest weight capacity is the Inno Tire Hold II # INA389 which has a 50 lb weight capacity. If there was a way to shed 10 lbs from your bike like by removing the seat and battery this could work. But to answer your question more specifically the Rack and Roll trailer does not give the bike racks additional weight capacity. Most roof racks have a 165 lb weight capacity.

    I recommend using the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack # TH599000-FB with your ProBar Evo bars spread 41.5" on center for your trailer. The UpRide will fit crossbars spread 24"-43" while the Thule FastRide # TH95JV requires 18"-36". The UpRide will also allow you to leave your front wheel on and is rated for up to 44lbs per bike while the FastRide is only rated for 37.5lbs per bike and requires you to use the correct skewer which could be different if you carry different bikes for different...

  • What Type of Roof Bike Racks Can Attach to Yakima Jetstream Bars
    The Yakima Jetstream crossbars have a track that runs on top of them which means that bike racks that can fit aero/elliptical bars and bars with tracks on top will fit fine.

    The bike rack I recommend for your 2020 Subaru Outback with factory roof rack is the Thule UpRide for Fat Bikes # TH599000-FB. This bike rack can accommodate a single bike with up to 5 inch wide tires, so it will work great with either of your fat bikes, as long as they also meet the following specs: Maximum weight capacity: 44 lbs Maximum wheelbase: 48 inches Wheel diameter: 20 - 29 inches What I really like about this rack is that it has two arms that grab the front tire, as opposed...

  • Roof Bike Rack For Thule TracRac Crossbars
    I recommend using the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack # TH599000-FB with your TracRac Crossbars # 8542526002. The RockyMounts TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack # RKY1222 will only clamp to a crossbar that is up to 3-1/2" wide. The Upride # TH599000-FB includes T-slot bolts that you will be able to slide into the top channel on your crossbars. This will be the only way to mount a bike rack to your crossbars at 4" wide. Your crossbars need to be between 24" and 43" apart for the bike rack to mount.

  • What Roof Bike Rack and Crossbar System do You Recommend for My 2014 Toyota Prius?

Apart from providing you with 44 pounds of bike weight capacity, the UpRide gives you the option of clamping the rack onto crossbars or using the t-channels (up to 20mm x 20mm). As far as required crossbar spread, the UpRide will mount on your crossbars as long as they can be spaced between...

Then for a bike rack the Thule UpRide part # TH599000-FB would be a great choice to allow you to keep the front wheel attached.

  • Can the Thule Elite Van XT # TH302043 Accommodate Fat Bike Tires?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, the Thule Elite Van XT 2 # TH302043 will not be able to carry a fat-bike tire in the cradles. Since we do not carry any hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2022 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500, the only other option is a roof rack system to transport your fat bikes. The roof rack you need for your vehicle depends on if you have a bare roof or factory tracks. If your van has a bare roof, I recommend the following setup: - Thule ProBar Evo Crossbars...

  • Can SeaSucker Roof Bike Rack Safely Install on BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover
    I don't recommend using the SeaSucker Talon Bike Rack # 298-BT1004 with the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover because it still has a bit of a textured surface and the SeaSucker won't be able to get the best connection to it. You'll need to install the SeaSucker on top of the cab for your 2021 Ford F-150 or you'll need to add a rack system like the Adarac Pro Series # A58RR for a 6-1/2' or # A26RR for an 8' bed as it provides crossbars for a rooftop bike rack, like the Thule UpRide Roof Bike...
