Availability of Longer Cradle Straps for Thule Vertex # TH9030XT


Hello, I recently bought the Vertex 9030 bike rack and am wondering if longer straps might be available for it. I am using the rack for a mountain bike that has an unusual frame. At the moment I am tying the straps around the fork which is not ideal. Thanks!

I checked with my Thule representative, and found that a longer strap is not offered.

Have no fear, though. I believe I've got a solution for you. If you were to use a frame adapter bar, part # 64005 to span the distance between the seat post and the handlebar gooseneck, you'd have a standard sized bar for the cradles of the bike rack to attach to.

If you click the provided link, you can see how the adapter bar works.
