Your trusty road, mountain or track bike wasn't made for merely cycling around the suburbs. From time to time, it needs to stretch its legs in uncharted territory. Reach new routes without the hassle of popping off your front tire or damaging your frame's finish with the Thule Sidearm Roof Bike Rack.

Old-school upright bike carriers have awkward arms that grab onto your frame, but they tend to scuff, scratch and mar your finish. The Thule Sidearm completely changes the game. Instead of gripping your downtube, the Sidearm only touches your tires. Up front, the SecureHook ratchets down on your tire for the snuggest fit possible. In the back, a secondary ratcheting strap fuses your rear wheel into the tray. Together, they deliver unflinching stability without ever touching your frame.

What's more, Thule engineered your Sidearm Roof Bike Rack to withstand harsh weather and sticky-fingered thieves. The double-walled aluminum tray is coated to block rust. And, you can slip in a pair of Thule One-Key cylinders (sold separately) to thwart bandits from making off with your two-wheeler and rack. It mounts securely to both square and round bars, and comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

Thule Sidearm Roof Bike Rack is nice, assembly it is confusing

Love the functionality, solidly built. The plastic end tabs are cheapo and I wonder if they will stay on. But nice product. Now, have read more than a 1/2 dozen complaints about the assembly instructions. I am handy, have led engineering teams for decades; the instructions absolutely suck, so, instead of receiving more negative feedback, hows about you fix that?

Just what I was looking for

This looks great. It sits over my Pace Edwards Full Metal Jackrabbit cover. More adventures ahead!!!

Very well made but the directions are a bear!

The rack was a little more than we wanted to pay but we wanted a rack where we didn't have to remove the front tire. My husband also needed something that would hold the width of mountain bike tires. Thule racks are well made but the directions are incredibly unclear and confusing (and we really are used to assembling things). We got it figured out and would buy another Thule that we know what to do.
