  8. Hi all TGIF! I'm looking to buy a towbar mounted bike rack (seems to be the overwhelming preference) and have been checking out the Thule EasyFold XT2. It's fairly pricey at R17999. Has anyone got one and would recommend it? I'm a little confused at all the various options in their range: VeloSpace, VeloCompact, EuroRide, etc. I need to carry max two mountain bikes (alu), or 1 road bike (carbon).The platform rack seems to be popular.The tilt feature is nice to access the bootI have a 13 pin connector on my two bar (but I see you can get 7 pin and vice versa).Other than that, I don't kn
  9. Hi all, I am looking for some advice on how to carry 5 or 6 bicycles plus gear on a double cab Toyota Hilux. My extended family are all into cycling and we have a few road trips planned around cycling. We would ideally want to be able to carry 5 bikes and 5 people all with their cycling gear and a weekend bag. A trailer is out of the equation as we do not have space to store it when not in use. I do have a 3 bicycle Thule rack however I prefer carrying two bikes on it. I saw this Hilux in picture on the road the other day and I think that it my be the answer to my problems. The Hilux had x4
  10. Morning I have just bought a Thule VeloCompact 927. I can't get it to clamp onto the tow bar. I was using a EuroClassic 929 and have no no issues getting it on. I called Thule and they said that I must remove the plastic cover type thing under the handle as it restricts the handle movement. Without it it'll open more apparently. Can someone confirm if the plastic cover in the pic is the one that must be removed and if so how does it come off? Has anyone had this issue or have any other ideas? To me it doesn't look like the plastic 'cover' doesn't come off too easily.
  11. With lockdown we’ve all been spending a lot of time indoors, whether remote learning, zoom office meetings or just staying safe and away from crowds, so there really is no better feeling than getting back in the saddle and hitting the wide open road (or mountain, or trail) for a little time out and some fresh air.

  14. Hi guys. Has anyone got any suggestions on a roof rack carrier for a tandem? I know Thule make one but it is prohibitively expensive, R8k to R10K. Any thoughts, comments or suggestions would be welcome. Matt
  15. Hi guys, I have a question, and I am sure my fellow hubbers would conquered this issue before. I did not want to revive an old thread deadish thread, or highjack that thread, but I came from here: https://community.bikehub.co.za/topic/55832-thule-roofrack-on-bakkie/page-3. Basicly I own a 2016 Toyota Hilux Double cab fitted with an Armidillo Auto Roll Top Cover. I own a Scott aspect 910 aluminium bike, which I had from 2014. Currently I simply open the cover and load the bike on the back with the front wheel over the tailgate with a blanket or so between the bike and the tailgate. I
  16. Hi Guys, I am interested in purchasing a bike trailer and would appreciate some input from cyclists who have used one of them. Thule has the Coaster; how will it deal with light off-roading? Are there any other brands/makes you can recommend?
  17. Does anyone perhaps have a spare middle arm for a Thule 3 bike carrier. Specifically the EuroWay G2. My neighbor lost his so I said I'd ask on here before he has to splash out.

  19. Hi Hubbers, Just looking to find out if anyone has installed an aftermarket Thule Fixed Towbar on a VW Golf (GTI) or any other car for that matter, & what is your thoughts on the product. I am looking for a solution to carry 2 bikes, and am against the roof racks & was advised against the hatch back carriers because the boot spoiler could get damaged. The Thule fitment center quoted me R3100 for the fixed tow bar & then R1200 for the 2 bike carrier, so all fitted R4300. My only concern was how it will look on the vehicle, as they would need to cut into the bottom of the b
  20. Guys I see so many posts here on stolen bikes where guys say it was locked on a Thule rack. I only use Thule racks and so know how good/(bad) the locks are. I have never tried but I would guess 10 seconds with a large screw driver and a vice grip and that lock s gone. If you need to lock bike on racks and leave it, you really need to know the risk. What area are you in, is there passing foot traffic, is there car guards. I carry a very good very thick chain (encased in plastic Hose) in my car with a huge big great quality lock. EDIT this is attached while driving as I have heard

  22. While not explicitly marketed as such, I had this backpack marked as a do-it-all commuter backpack. By that I mean protected compartments for all your electronic devices, enough room to fit a clean set of clothes, shoes and lunch, durable construction, some rain protection, as well as comfort and stability. So everything really. Materials The Crossover is made from good quality materials. Giving the impression that it may just outlast the wearer. The outer layer is water resistant nylon. The plastic clips are far from flimsy while the pockets, made from the same tough fabric as the rest of th
  23. I'm looking for a plug and play bike rack for my Audi A1. I was told that Thule don't make a rack for my car. I really don't want to put a tow bar on my car just for my bike and also can't fit my 29" bike in the car even with the seats down. Any one got a solution? or anyone with an A1 got a bike rack that worked for them?
  24. My 6Fattie's wheels don't fit in the grooves of my Thule bike rack. The wheel rests on top of the "wheel holder" (don't know what to call it) so isn't flush as can been seen here. I can rest it on the "wheel holder" but that's not safe and I've cracked one already. These racks were made in a time when there weren't that many plus size wheeled bikes around. I have one of these side view any suggestions of what to do or what anyone with a similar problem has done to so sort it out?
