Compatibility of Kuat Transfer Single Bike Rack for Fat Bike Compatibility with Thinner Tire Bikes


Single bike carrier I notice it’s designed for fat bikes. Will it securely hold a regular commuter or mountain bike? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bike - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # TS01B-FB is designed to be compatible with fat bike tires up to 4-1/2 inches wide but it will even work with the skinny road bike tires. If you don't have a fat bike, you may want to use the similar # TS01B and then purchase the longer straps at a different time. The only difference between the standard rack and the Fat Bike rack is the length of the strap # APBK, so the cradles and straps will absolutely hold a commuter or mountain bike securely. The tires will actually fit deeper into the cradles by design.

I've attached a couple videos to assist.
