Thule Truck Bed Bike Racks Review - 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, we're doing a test fit of the Thule Gate Mate Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack for Full-Size Trucks, part number TH824.This is going to measure 62" wide and sit over the tailgate of your truck and add just a little extra protection when loading up your gear. We already have two of our three straps secured down, and we're going to show you our last one here.There are multiple different ways that we can actually secure this to our tailgate. We're going to show you one that we found is easier.What we'll do is we'll come to the center here and open up our hook and loop door, and we can lower our tailgate just a bit. You want to hold onto your tailgate pads so that it stays and sits evenly. We'll come to the edge. We're going to start to feed our strap through and between our truck bed and our tailgate.

Malone Truck Bed Bike Racks MPG2151 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone Fork Block QR Bike Rack. This installs on any flat surface, and secures the bike's front forks for confident transport of your bicycle. The unit's gonna feature the nine millimeter quick-release skewer that holds the bike to the block. Really nice, secure setup, very easy to control and operate. It's also gonna feature the hundred millimeter spacing that fits most bikes. You'll notice that right here we're gonna have these pass-through holes, so if you have a security cable or a cable lock, you can still use that, you can pass that through and add security to your bicycle with this unit. When it comes to the construction, it's a powder-coated aluminum construction that's very strong and durable, and it's gonna do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion, and looking good for a long time. Mounting hardware's not included, but to get it mounted, you'll just need to use two mounting screws. When it comes to the base, that's going to give us a measurement going edge to edge this direction of about four inches.

SeaSucker Falcon Truck Bed Bike Rack Review

SeaSucker Falcon Truck Bed Bike Rack Test Course

Here on our test course, let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side to side actions, such as going around corners, or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. And then finally, on to our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action, such as going over potholes or uneven pavement..

Thule Truck Bed Bike Racks Review - 2017 Ford F-150

Today in our 2017 Ford F-150, we're going to be test fitting the Thule GateMate tailgate pad and bike rack for full size trucks. Part number TH824. We already have our bike installed on it. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now normally this is how you would have the bike set up on the tailgate pad. You can fit at least one other bike on here, or you could also put say a surfboard or a stand-up paddle board. We have these points here on the top, which you can use as tie down points, which you can purchase those separately and secure your bike, or your paddle board or surfboard, to the actual tailgate pad itself. Let's go and take the bike off and set it aside. It just lifts up and off like that, very easy. Another feature about this, it has this flap here with hook and loop straps, which you can open up and have easier access to your tailgate latch like so.

Thule Truck Bed Bike Racks Review - 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today, on our 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty, we're going to be test-fitting the Thule GateMate tailgate pad and bike rack for full-size trucks, part number TH824. This measures about 62 inches wide. We already have a bike installed, as you can see here, but it also has other uses, such as if you want to put your surfboards or stand-up paddle boards, you could set them on here as well. It does have these areas here, which you can use for tie-down points to secure your bikes to it, and the pad does provide protection between your bike and your tailgate to make sure that your vehicle itself doesn't get scratched up. Let's go ahead and take the bike off. It simply lifts out. It can carry up to two bikes total, and this is excellent for trucks that have the built-in toolbox up at the front so you can't put the truck-bed bike racks that we also carry at How it connects We have these three straps that go underneath the tailgate and connect here. You just cinch them down.

Thule Watersport Carriers Review - 2017 Honda Ridgeline

Today on our 2017 Honda Ridgeline we're doing a test fit of the Thule Gate Mate Tail Gate Pad and Bike Rack for compact trucks. That's going to be part number TH823. Now this is 54" long, so just keep that in mind. There are also ones available for larger trucks as well. We've got this draped over our truck. We just picked up that back end and draped it over.

Truck Bed Bike Racks Questions and Answers

  • Truck Bed Bike Racks that Can Work with A Roll-Up Tonneau Cover
  • We offer several types of truck bed bike racks including adjustable multi-bike types that attach between the bed rails (# S64702), simple single-bike fork-mount types that bolt onto the truck bed (# HRT970) and even a tailgate pad type that uses your tail gate to hold the bikes. All of these have in common a need for access to the truck bed and none will work with a tonneau cover (of any type - hard or soft) that is fully closed. The linked article will give you background on all options...

  • Truck Bed Bike Racks Compatible With Tonneau Cover
  • The Thule Insta-Gater, part # TH501 would be a very good choice that wouldn't involve any drilling into the vehicle. Because the rack is a wheel mount bike rack, you wouldn't need to remove the bike's front wheel. Because the rack is closed in the tailgate, it can easily be removed when it's not needed. I've linked you to some product description videos and an FAQ article that I think you'll find helpful.

  • What Type of Bike Rack to Use on Truck with Tonneau Cover
  • Because your tonneau cover attaches to the bed rails by grabbing the inside of the bed rail you would want to go with the truck bed bike rack Thule part # TH501 that attaches to the floor. The Swagman part # S64701 would interfere with the tonneau since it would be putting pressure on the setup. Check out the review video I attached for this rack as well.

  • Tailgate Pad Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 1500
  • Personally I like the Softride Shuttle Pad # SR26457 more than the Thule Gate Mate part # TH824 because it has the loops that allow a bike to easily be secured to the pad. Thule doesn't have the straps to secure the bikes to the pad, and most likely they wouldn't be necessary. But for added peace of mind I prefer the Softride. I attached review videos for both racks for you to check out.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry Five Bikes in the Bed of a Utility Trailer
  • To transport the 5 bikes, you could use 5 of the Fork Mount Bike Carrier Block - Thule Low Riders, # TH821, and attach them to the bed of your trailer. I have included a link to the installation details below. To secure the bikes to the rack and/or trailer, I recommend adding a cable lock like # CAB-10.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack and Kayak Carriers for 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • A ladder rack is one option for transporting two kayaks in your truck along with your four bikes but I have a recommendation for you that might save you some money. Since you will be towing a trailer your hitch receiver will be occupied, but if you have a 2-inch hitch and were to add a Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 you could use a load bar in the upper receiver to support the rear of the two kayaks and then install a roof rack on the truck's cab. This arrangement will cost substantially...

  • Is the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack S64701 Lockable
  • Yes, the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack # S64701 that you referenced has locks built into the skewers of the rack so that you can lock bikes to it. If you were to use the 20 mm adapter part # S64715 it would also still be able to lock.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Compatibility with a Honda Ridgeline
  • It looks like you have done a good job with the math and that makes it easier to get you the best answer. With the Thule Bed-Rider Locking, Aluminum 2 Bike Carrier, # TH822XT, installed at the position you have mention on your Honda Ridgeline, the bike would be right at the edge of the bed where the tailgate closes or just a few inches on the tailgate. Better to err on the side of caution in this case and I do believe that the back tire will be on or overhand above the tailgate. It will...

  • Installation Recommendation for a Thule Low-Rider Bike Block for Nut Attachment Access
  • You can use either a bolt or a screw to install the Thule Low-Rider Bike Block # TH821XT as long as you use locking nuts on the other side. In other words, you would not want to install the # TH821XT by just running screws through the metal without nuts on the other side. For your situation I would recommend you go with mounting the # TH821XT to the floor of your bed since you will be able to attach nuts to the other side of the bolts this way. I attached a link to installation instructions...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Toyota Tacoma with the Bed Rail System
  • The RockyMounts DriveShaft SD, # RKY1085, that you referenced will fit and works with standard fork mount bikes as well as 15-mm and 20-mm thru axle bikes. It is confirmed to work well with the bed rail system on your 2013 Toyota Tacoma. I have attached a video showing how this bike rack attaches to a bed rail system for you to check out.

  • Compare Thule Gate Mate and Yakima Crashpad Tailgate Bike Racks
  • For the tailgate of your 2012 Ford F-150 the Yakima Crashpad part # Y02456 and the Thule Gate Mate part # TH824 have both been confirmed as a fit. Since both racks are very similar I would recommend going with the Yakima as it has a better price. I attached a couple review videos for either rack for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Saris Traps Fork-Block Bike Rack Hold Through Axle Bikes
  • Saris Traps Fork-Block # SATRK34-BLK3 is designed to hold bikes with 9mm axles but not through axle bikes but we do have several truck bed bike racks that will accept through axle bikes, see link. One of the more popular options is the Kuat Dirtbag # DRT15. I have included a link to a video of this product for you.

The Softride Tailgate Pad also helps protect your tailgate if you're carrying long loads like lumber, ladders, surfboards and kayaks. If you want...

  • Truck bed Bike Rack Recommendation for a Truck with Tonneau Cover Mounting Rails
  • The rails for a tonneau cover extend too far out for the brackets on the Topline bike rack, # UG2500, to safely attach. What I recommend that will not require any drilling into the bed or modification is the Thule Insta-Gator # TH501. This rack secures by anchors that mount in the tail gate hinge. Take a look at the video and isntructions I have linked.

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes In a 2010 Toyota Tacoma Truck Bed with Rail Track Tie Down System
  • We do have some truck bed mounted bike racks that will work with your 2010 Toyota Tacoma with rail track system, but the Topline system will not fit because direct access to the bed rails is needed to secure the clamps. For in bed 4 bike transport you could use four of the Yakima BlockHead Single Bike Truck Bed Mounted Racks, item # Y01117. Another option for your truck would be a hitch mounted bike rack like the Thule Parkway 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, item # TH956. If you...

  • Bike Adapter Bar Recommendation for Hauling Beach Cruisers with Topline 2 Bike Carrier # UG2500
  • There is a way to transport your beach cruisers with this Topline 2 Bike Carrier, part # UG2500, but I would not recommend attaching it to the down tube of your bike. I would recommend you use a Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, part # Y02531, to provide you with an attachment point for the # UG2500. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well as installation instructions. You will want to measure the distance from your seat post to your handlebars, and as...

  • Swagman Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation that Fits 15 mm Thru Axles
  • There are several truck bed bike racks available that are confirmed to fit 15 mm axles, but the Swagman # S64702 that you referenced is not one of them, nor is there a way to make it work. Closest solution would be the Swagman Patrol part # S64701 which is a fit for 15 mm thru axles.

  • Availability of Saris Traps Fork-Mount Bike Carrier for Single Bike
  • We do indeed offer a single track version of the Saris Traps bike carrier system that can be used with their Fork Mount Bike Carrier # SATR1BLK. Saris offers a 47-inch single track, part # SATRK14. A shorter 35-inch Triple Track is also available, part # SATRK33. If you want to choose a complete system you might consider # SATRK33-BLK3, which consists of a 35-inch triple track and three fork blocks. No 2-block version is offered.
