Replacement Fat Tire Wheel Strap for Thule T2 Classic Platform Bike Racks - Qty 1 - 8527642001

Replaces a lost or damaged fat tire wheel strap for your Thule T2 Classic platform bike rack.


These are really husky, long straps. But, they do not fit the rear wheel trays on our Thule rack. There is no way to attach them. The ends don't have the round cylinders that fit into the grooves in the Thule rear wheel tray. But, I was able to bolt one of them to the Fiamma bike rack strap I adapted to the Fat Tire front tray I modified to fit the Fiamma bike rack on our Airstream Trailer. Now I have purchased a newer fat tire rear wheel tray with larger strap that I will put onto the existing Thule bike rack with the new Fat Tire front tray. It's all good!


Couldn't find replacement straps for my Thule 5 year old bike rack. 2 straps had age hardened and broke. I was so happy to find this site. The straps fit perfect and I didn't have to purchase a whole new bike rack! Thank you!


Perfect! I’ve looked for these straps, and they have been hard to get. Not only did trailer have them in stock, they shipped quickly to Alaska. No hassle.

Still using these. They are holding up well. Great product.

Product was great, but turns out I didn't really need it. Thule info with the rack didn't really explain how to change the position of the strap in order to fit my fat bike, I had to rely on the excellent video review of the rack that I found on Etrailer side for that. Thanks, but now I have plenty of extra straps.


Glad to find these. Fit our Thule T2 pro XTR perfectly.
The orignal straps were cut by thieves stealing our bikes.


Didn’t fit my t2 classic that had a missing strap.

Thank you for your feedback. Based on our research with Thule the strap measures17-12 inches and from the hole to the end measures 16-14 inches. Most likely the issue you are experiencing is that you have the correct length strap but it is not routed properly for use with a fat bike. What you would need to do is pull out the current strap you have and then route it through the outside of the cradle.

I am giving four stars because through e- trailer I can order only the strap, rather than the entire assembly, saving quite a bit of money. With new bikes having larger tires and wheels the straps are still too short. I ordered the straps because I’m going to cobble two together to make a long strap to fit my new mountain bike.


The bands were too short. Couldn’t use them.

You mentioned that the strap was too short. I wanted to ask a few questions. The strap that you received should have been 18 inches long. Also, which Thule model bike rack are you using the strap on?

I bought a almost new XT2 Pro, tried to mount my fat bike, and the strap wasnt long enough.. Got online, bought then fat bike strap, 18". Delivered 3 days later. Great! Threaded it thru, ended up being the SAME as what came with the rack. Looked at the never read owners manual, and all I had to do was short thread it. IE, put it in the trough that was a few inches closer, and it worked perfectly! So, ya dont have to buy a longer strap, just pull it out, and thread it into the NEXT location. It does my 4" fatty perfectly! I will keep the extra strap, justin case!


The strap is 18" long. I had thought that it would be longer. You're still going to have to reroute the strap through the secondary latch point. You won't be able to go full through both latch points with this (or any) strap and still fit your fat bikes.

Worked as advertised, thank you.


Strap is the exact one I need for my Thule T2 bike rack.....Came quick, is brand new, and I am very happy with the product and service.


Great product workmanship & soft material. Easy to install and use great length for those Fatbike wheels bikes.


The part is great! Took a while to receive but that was due to a supply issue. Great customer service as I was informed of progress each step of he way.


The product allows me to use my mid fat bike on my bike carrier.


A perfect fit, and matches OE quality


Excellent experience!


Quick shipping and product is better than original


These were replacement parts. Different design from the original. Fits well, like the original. Product is the same as pictured. Quality - appears to be well made.


Very friendly. I accidently ordered the wrong product and they were so nice to change the orderand straighten out my invoice. Got what I needed fast. Reliable company.


Great service! Parts replaced where the same! Great low prices!


My dog ate one of the straps and this replacement fit perfectly. Service was great as well.
