Thule is synonymous with quality, and Thule's bike racks and carriers do not disappoint. RealTruck carries a wide variety of styles of Thule bike racks including roof mounted upright and fork style carriers, as well as hitch mounted cradle and platform style bike racks. So, no matter the style of bike rack that best fits your life, we are sure to carry it.
There's no questioning the recent rise in popularity of roof mounted bike racks, and Thule has a large selection of options available. There are two major styles of roof mounted bike carriers - fork mount and the upright mount. Fork mounts are the most popular because of the ease of use, the increased stability, and the overall "coolness" factor. The upright does have its perks as well, such as not needing to remove the front tire, which means no need to find room in the vehicle for that tire. If your car or SUV doesn’t have factory crossbars, you’re going to need to a set on before you install a roof-mount bike rack. Check out our selection of roof racks. One thing is for sure - Thule makes a great fork mount bike rack and a great upright bike rack, so whatever your preference, you're not going to be disappointed.
We would be remiss if we didn't talk about Thule's hitch mounted bike racks and carriers. If you're in the need to move bikes, but still want the storage on top of your ride, this is a strong option. There are two major styles of hitch mounted bike carriers - cradle and platform. Cradle mounts allow for a greater amount of bikes to be carried, but it is important to secure the bike to reduce the likelihood of it making contact with other bikes or the vehicle. Platform mounts allow the bike tires to rest in trays, reducing sway.
So, no matter if you're looking for an easy way to transport your bike for a weekend adventure on the trails, or you're looking to stack five bikes up for the family vacation, Thule has the perfect bike rack for you!
