If you're concerned about damage to your bike's frame, the Sidearm Roof Bike Rack is the carrier to use. The exclusive SecureHook holds the bike by grabbing the front wheel. Your bike's frame is protected because no frame contact is made.
A strong, rigid and corrosion resistant double-wall aluminum tray is the foundation of the Sidearm carrier. It attaches to Thule rack systems, round bars and most factory racks, and cradles wheels from 20" to 29" diameters with tires up to 2.6" wide. And along with the SecureHook, your bike is secured to the tray with a ratcheting strap through the rear wheel. The Sidearm is versatile, accommodating bikes with disc brakes, thru-axles and non-traditional frame designs. Two One-Key lock cylinders (sold separately) can be used to lock the bike to the carrier and the carrier to the roof rack.
A Thule roof carrier protects your bike from road dirt better than hitch or trunk racks. And the stable and secure roof rack attachment also gives you the versatility to add other accessories to the base rack. The Thule Sidearm Roof Bike Rack comes with everything required for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.179.95

I purchased the Thule Gateway bike rack from the CARiD website just prior to relocating from Southern California to Southern Oregon. I stowed 1 road bike on the made-for-2 rack and traveled over 700 miles at speeds exceeding 80mph, no problems. I took it upon myself to watch video reviews of the installation before departing. This is definitely advised, one if not the best way to ensure the installation is correct, will stand the distance and speeds.Was this review helpful for you?

The product is not easy to install. If you have physical strength, it's okay. If not, this is not the rack for you. It seems sturdy, but I was disappointed when one of the bumpers on the rack fell off the second time I used it.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
