Thule Bed Rider Truck Bike Rack Customer Reviews
18 Customer Reviews
With Thule's Bed Rider Truck Bike Rack ready to take transporting 2-wheelers to another level, there's no reason to toss your bikes in a damage-prone pile in the back of your pickup.
Thanks to yet another ingenious Thule design, the Bed Rider Bike Rack hauls your cycles upright and out of the tangled mess that bends and breaks spokes. Just pop off the front tire, drop the forks into one of the two Thule Low-Rider blocks and lock it down. It's that easy.
Speaking of easy, the Thule Bed Rider Bike Rack practically defines quick installation. Adjust the telescoping bar to size, clamp down the fork blocks and slide in the secure locking cylinder. It's equally easy to remove for full use of your payload for hauling bigger stuff.
Thule builds the Bed Rider in the USA from tough aluminum that survives any situation. In fact, Thule stands behind your Bed Rider Truck Bike Rack with a Lifetime Warranty.

This is a good basic bike rack for a truck bed. Some assembly required, nothing too difficult. Bikes ride securely and rack is equipped to lock bikes on rack. The only problem I had was with a missing part on the rack bar. Have to deal directly with Thule for replacement parts. As long as you are patient and follow their procedure for replacement parts you should not have any problems. Had no problems at all with AutoAnything, they were great through the whole order and delivery process.

This has been the best investment for the safety of my bikes and I have not regretted the purchase one bit! This rack was pretty easy to install (youtube video also came in handy), very sturdy (my bikes don't move at all in "lock down"), and most importantly safe from potential "bike nappers". This rack has been the envy of all my fellow bike riders and the cost at autoanything was the best all around hands down! I compared shopped this rack versus buying the locks by themselves, but with the free shipping, discounts, no tax, etc. this was definitley the best deal for me :-)

The system was so easy to install that I used in within minutes after I received it. I recently purchased news bikes for my wife and I and was concerned about the straching potential from other racks. Both bikes fit a good enough distance apart that I can load both bikes into the bed of the truck stand in between the bikes to secure them on the rack. And I'm doing this in the bed of a Toyota Tacoma. I even have enough room to place the child trailer, in the folder configuration, in the bed of the truck. The bikes don't budge once properly installed in the rack. The other factor was security. Once in the rack, I chain the bike together and place the front wheels inside the vehicle as a deterrant. (They would have to break into the truck with alarm to get the tirees.) The locking bar is more secure than I first thought, an added plus to this system. Overall, I highly recommend this system for tranport and security of the bikes.

Excellent choice for hauling bikes in a pick-up. Simple to install, easy and secure way to transport; only wish there was a way to secure the front wheels as well (besides a logging chain and padlock).

What is the most bikes that the rack could comfortable hold in a full size truck? I am looking for a system that can hold four bikes bed mounted.

Does this system allow you to keep your bike tires on? I see in the photos they are off.

Hi, This is what's considered a "fork mount" bike rack and will require that you remove the front wheels to secure your bikes.flag Accept Answer
