Thule UpRide Installed On Car

The UpRide wheel-mount bike rack lets you transport 1 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 SettingsThule 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 Cradle

Thule UpRide Sliding Rear-Wheel Cradle

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. You can also use an adapter (sold separately) to transport your fat 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 with a cylinder installed simply slide the cable out, wrap it through your bike frame, and insert the cable tip into the lock hub.

Video Transcript for Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack, part number TH599000.The Thule UpRide is a roof mounted bike rack that carries up to one bike and grips it by its tires. So this is great for bikes such as your carbon fiber bikes, your ultimate frame bikes, or your kids' bikes. They make it difficult when you have the bike racks that you have to take off the front tire for.How it grips the front tire is pretty unique as well. We'll have a wheel hook to carry the front part of the tire, but then we have this wheel cage that slides up and ratchets down into place to provide extra stability while you travel.The wheel hook is adjustable at five points and can fit a wide variety sizes of tires. It can also fit fat bikes with an adapter and that's going to part number TH599100. That is sold separately.The wheel cage also has a quick release button here.

Push that in to release it. Then of course, the ratcheting action.The real wheel cradle also has a quick release and ratcheting strap to hold that in place as well. It also has an integrated cable lock that you can pull out, wrap around your bike and secure it. It doesn't come with a lock included. Those are sold separately and you can find those at etrailer.com.Even though the bike rack itself is particularly long, in this case, we're not going to have an issue of clearance between our rear hatch and the bike rack as you can see here.

Now with factory rack side rails, you can make some adjustments if you do make contact.Removing the bike is just as easy. We'll start with the rear wheel strip by pushing the release, move this strap out and then I'll go to the front.Making sure that we're holding onto the bike when we do this, we'll hit the quick release for our wheel cage, push that up, and then we'll go to this quick release, which is going to detach the wheel cage from the wheel hook. You push up like so. That will release it. Then it folds flat.Now with that released we can bring the bike back and lift it off.

With the bike off, even the wheel hook folds down and also folds flat.Both wheel cradles are adjustable back and forth to accommodate bikes of different sizes. The UpRide will work with multiple roof rack systems. Right now we have it on a Thule AeroBlades. When you have racks that have a T-track accessory slots, we do recommend that you use the T-track bolts with this.Now if you'd had square, round, or factory style racks it does come with a a clamp system that can go around it and we'll show you that as well.It's a very easy tool-free install. You simply put it into place and we have these handles here that you tighten down and they snap into place and lock into place.

Also, there's one up at the front with a plastic piece in it that can be removed and replaced with a Thule lock core as well, so you can secure this to your roof rack.When comparing this with other bike racks, one that comes up is the Yakima High Road Roof Bike Rack, part number Y02114. We have it installed on our vehicle as well. Let's go ahead and go over some of the differences between these two racks.While both of these bike racks grip the front tire by two parts, the Thule is slightly different. It has the two parts actually lock into place together to provide extra stability. However, the Yakima does have this turn knob on the side here that has the Acu Tight tensioning that will click once you know it's tightened down.The Thule also has the quick release as well as the ratcheting style to get it into place, but it also has multiple settings for different tire sizes. The Yakima does not.With the Thule you do have this clamp that can go around the square, round, and most factory style roof racks, but you have to switch that out between that and the T-track. If you have an Aero bar, you practically have to use the T-track.Now with the Yakima, it does have the rubber-coated steel straps that wrap around almost every style of roof rack and it does come with a T-track accessory that's sold separately. Although, I don't know why you'd necessarily want that because with the rubber-coated steel straps, they pretty much wrap around everything and they help protect your roof rack system as well. While with the clamp style here, this is metal to bar contact.Then we'll go over some of the features of the bike rack. Let's go ahead and show you how it installs. Since we're using Aero bars today, we're going to use the T-tracks here. We'll start by opening up the end caps, then we'll remove our strips completely and we'll cut these to length once we have the bike rack installed.Now we can take our bike rack, slide it into the T-tracks, lining them up, and putting them into place. With our rear portion we want to make sure that's lined up properly. This does adjust back and forth to accommodate that. Then we can push this into place where we want it and start tightening it down.To tighten these down you simply turn these to the right and the screw you tighten down like so. Then you close them down, just snap them into place. You may need to move this up out of the way to do so. Do one more turn. There we go. Now we'll go the front and repeat that process.Once we have our last latch tightened, push it down into place. It's good to give it a shake test back and forth to make sure it's not going to move around.Now we can take our strips that we took out, cut them to length, and put them back into place. Now we can start getting our bike rack ready for our bikes.We'll start by taking the wheel hook and folding it out like so. Then we'll pull this gray tab out to open up the hook. Then you want to look in this little window here and note what tire size you're going to be using.Now as we pull this out and push this away, it goes to different settings for tires. You want to look in this area here. Right now it's set at 20, but if we pull this out and push it up, this setting is going to be for 24. Push that again and then we get to the setting that we need for our 26 inch tires.Now if you keep on going you can go to 29 and 27 plus and then finally the fat bike tire size. Of course, we're not using that today.Now that we have the wheel hook ready, we'll come to our wheel cage here. Then we'll go to our thumb lever, push that in, and pull it out all the way and set it back down. Let's make sure that it's out of the way for when we put our bike into place, can slide everything in.Now we'll take our bike, setting it on the bike rack, bring it to our wheel hook first, then bringing up our wheel cage until you hear that click. That's the wheel cage engaging with the actually wheel hook.Then you get the wheel cage tightened around the tire as well. It simply ratchets down. You want to get it nice and tight. Then we can move to our rear wheel and make our connections back there. Bring our strap through.That ratchets down as well. You may need to make and adjustment to the tire just to make sure that the strap goes through the spokes is not rubbing up against them.Now that we've shown you how it installs on AeroBlade cars, let's go ahead and show you how it installs on SquareBars.Set it into place just like you would the other style. Although this is slightly different. For one, you'll see it has these T-fittings here as opposed to the T-track fittings that we had on earlier.Next we'll take the clamps that actually slide underneath and wrap around the bars and install those. Now, in the instructions they say to install these first, but for me I would like to put them on later just in case it would make contact with the roof as I'm setting it down because these are metal.So you go to the top portion here. You kind of slide that down. You wrap it up underneath to where it catches that T-bolt. We'll repeat this for the other two clamps.The point is pretty much tightening it down like we did before. That's so it's nice and tight and it's not going to move. Now we'll repeat that process for the front and we're going to be ready to go.Here it is on our test course. We'll start by going though the slalom. This is going to show us the side-to-side action, which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers.Next we're at the alternating speed bumps, which we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole or driving over uneven pavement.There you have it for the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack, part number TH599000.

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). 644856

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. 792693

  • Recommended Bike, Cargo, and Canoe Carriers for a 2017 Chevy Equinox with Factory Roof Rack
    For your 2017 Chevy Equinox I recommend using the Thule UpRide # TH599000 for your bikes because of how easy it is to use and you don't have to remove your front wheel to transport your bike. To carry your canoe I highly recommend the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX for a few reasons. The first is that it can accommodate pretty much any boat style out there and the second reason is that this carrier has integrated locks that help grip your canoe and eliminate the...

    I have good news, there won't be an issue mounting 2 of the Thule Upride # TH599000 side by side on your roof as long as you have enough crossbar space to do so; considering that you're not driving a passenger car with limited space, you shouldn't be affected by this. If you are running into a situation where the handlebars are banging into eachother, you can flip them around and have 1 bike facing forward and the other facing backwards (although this is typically only used when mounting...
