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 - 2016 Ford F-150

Today in this 2016 Ford F-150, we're going to be test-fitting the Thule Bed Rider II bike rack for truck beds, part number TH822XTR. Now, how this works is it'll actually grab your bikes by the forks, and you do have space for additional fork mounts here, should you need them. To open them up, you simply pop this loose, and you can unscrew it from both sides to gain more space to lift up and out of the way. When you're ready to go, you simply push it back down, and these are lockable, so your bikes will be secure while you travel. The bike rack itself is lockable, but I'll show that later. Let's go ahead and take the bike out, and I'll lift it up and out of the way. Go ahead and close that back up. Now, the skewers themselves are also adjustable. Slide back and forth where you need them to by loosening these two screws here and just adjusting it as needed. Also, the other lock I was talking about is on this latch here, which is essentially how this hooks into your truck bed. You lift this up, which loosens it up, and then you spin the whole thing to either tighten it or loosen it to your specifications. Now, when you're ready to go, simply push it down, lock it up, and you're ready to travel. And there you have it for the Thule Bed Rider II bed bike rack for your truck bed, part number TH822XTR on our 2016 Ford F-150. First, we'll take it on our slalom course.
