Can Bike with Thru Axles be used on Thule BedRider Truck Bed Bike Rack


I am trying to find a replacement fork block for my Thule Bedrider 822 that has thru axles instead of the quick release. I would like the dimensions of the base plate of the Kuat fork blocks to see if it would work in the Bedrider. It is critical, in my case, that the base be large enough and close to the right thickness to fit on the mount. I am trying to avoid using an adapter. Specifically, I need a 12mm x 100mm and a 15mm x 100mm. I hope you can help me.

Thule actually makes a Thru axle adapter for the Thule BedRider part # TH822XTR that you have with the part number # TH535SKR.

The base of the Dirtbag part # DRT15 measures 1-3/4 inches by 4-5/16 inches and should not be modified or installed in any way onto your BedRider.
