And to clamp down on your wheel, you're going to use this torque right knob and basically as you loosen it, it's going to bring that arm down, as you see here. more

Adam: Hi guys, Adam from etrailer.com. Today I'm going to be doing a test fit on the Thule ThruRide Bike Roof Rack System on our 2019 Nissan Armada. What this is going to do, it's going to allow you to mount your bike to the roof opposed to having a hitch mounted bike rack and also have plenty of space to mount any other cargo that you might be carrying, a roof rack basket or any sort of kayak carrier. You can even slap a couple more of these on there to get multiple bikes on top of your vehicle.This does have two different tie down points for your bike. First you're going to have your front fork faceted into this rack. Then on top of that you have a little wheel cradle back here with a little zip tie style strap with a little bit of rubber boot to protect your wheel from any damage or anything like that.This is going to be able to basically accommodate for any type of roof rack system you have. more

Colin: Hey everyone is Colin here at etrailer. Today we're going to take a look at the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack for fat tire bikes. This is a bike rack that mounts to your roof rack, and allows you to get your fat tire bike all the way to destination. It's going to grip your bike by the wheels, so you're not going to have to worry about any frame contact occurring with your fat tire bike. What's unique about it, is that it has two arms that basically sandwich the tire to make sure that it's secure.Now the great thing about the two arm system with this bike rack, is that a lot of other fat tire bike racks just have that one hook that comes up, and then ratchets down on top of your tire. With the two arms, it's going to be a lot more secure, just means you're going to be able to get to and from your destination, with a little worry.Now you're going to get the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack itself. more

SeaSucker Talon Roof Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the SeaSucker Talon fork mounted roof bike rack, part number 298-BT1004. The SeaSucker brand has created a unique way to carry items on top of your roof and the case of the SeaSucker Talon, rather than having to purchase a roof rack that clamps on top of your roof, and then a bike rack to go on top of it, it's going to be a two in one system. It's a bike rack that mounts directly to your roof. The Talon is a great option for those vehicles where a traditional roof rack might not work. In the case of this vehicle, we have a frameless window, so a clamp-on roof rack is not going to work. We also don't have any raised side rails or fixed mounting points, so normally this means that we can't carry our bikes.However,SeaSucker has solved that problem. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2012 Toyota RAV4, we're going to be test fitting the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack. It's going to part number RRRBC050.As you can see, we already have a bike installed on the rack, so let's take a look at some of the nice features. As for the bike being secured to the rack, it's going to be secured at three different points of contact. It's going to have two plastic straps, both on the back wheel, and the front wheel. What's nice about these straps in the cradles is that they can slide up and down the rack to accommodate any type of width of bike that you might have.

Inno  Roof Bike Racks Review - 2012 Toyota RAV4

Speaker 1: Today on our 2012 Toyota RAV4, we're going to be test fitting the Inno Fork Lock III Roof Mounted Bike Rack, and that's going to be part number INA391. We already have the bike installed on our rack, so let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of our features.How the bike is held into place starting at the front here, it's going to grip your bike by the fork mounts. What's nice about this bike rack is that once this is in place, and it does come with the lock already at the top, everything is secure from the bike rack to the roof rack, as well as the bike to the bike rack because you can't remove the bike rack without this being open and unlocked, and you can't loosen it without that being loosened and unlocked as well with the latch here. We'll get to that a little bit later.Moving to the rear, we do have this rear wheel strap that does ratchet down into place, and this is adjustable the length of the bike rack to accommodate for bikes of different sizes. Now, you see that at the back here this does stick out pretty far past where our hatch is. However, since this particular model does open from the side here out, clearance is not going to be an issue for this bike rack.So, let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. more
