Product Description

securehook-thule.jpgThe Thule Sidearm is perfect bike roof rack if you want to keep your front wheel on and are not interested in frame or fork mounting. If you're anything like us, you probably find having to remove your front wheel is a major hassle every time you want to transport your bike somewhere. Luckily, Thule has designed the Sidearm which has all the Thule quality you would expect in a non-frame mounting design!

The Thule Sidearm uses a special ratcheting clamp they call the SecureHook which is used to clamp down your front wheel. Typically, in a frame mount style bike rack you would need to remove your front wheel and bolt onto the front fork. With the Sidearm, this is not necessary and it will clamp right on to your front tire. This design is also great if you're worried about your bike frame getting damaged. There are zero components on this rack that will come into contact with your frame - all strapping and clamps are designed to attach to your bike's wheels! This means no bent or scratched frames!

Your bike is secured in the Sidearm with three main components. First, there is a rugged, deep "V" wheel trough that provides a sturdy channel for you bike's wheel to sit in. Second, there is an included wheel strap that is used to tightly secure down your back tire. Third, there is the patented SecureHook that keeps your front tight locking into place. The SecureHook is a curved arm that wraps around a portion of your front wheel then ratchets down tight. The SecureHook is really cool and is what makes this rack unique. 

Like most of Thule's racks, this Sidearm can be completely installed without tools! Additionally, the Sidearm is designed to fit a wide variety of roof rack crossbars including round, square, oval, and most aero styles. It will fit any Thule or Yakima crossbars, and will fit most other factory roof racks. Thule takes pride in manufacturing products that fit universally across most vehicles.

Q:
Will this work with a beach cruiser that has fenders?
 
A:
While the Thule Side Arm Bike Rack works with most beach cruisers, it requires clamping pressure on the tire itself. to securely hold the bike on the rack. If the fender of the bike blocks the arm from clamping the tire, then it would not be recommended. We don't have a better specification from the manufacturer for whether your fender would get in the way of this clamping system, on your cruiser. .
 
Q:
Is this just for 1 bike? Or to hold 2 bikes?
 
A:
Our Thule Sidearm Rack holds one bike. To hold two bike, you would need to order an additional one for the other side of your roof rack.
