Is Weight Carrying Ability of Thule Spare Me # TH963PRO Affected by Attaching it in Offset Position  


2nd question. with the rack off centre for an off centre spare wheel is there undue stress on the rack - it seems only two small allen bolts are holding it up


Expert Reply:

In addition to the two hex bolts you mention, the rack will also be secured by the larger diameter locking bolt that threads into the shank that is held to the spare tire mount by the spare tire. The connection will be strong enough to carry two bicycles as long as the 75 lb stated capacity of the rack is not exceeded.

For womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # TH982XT is recommended. The adapter spans the distance between the seat post and the handle bar gooseneck, and provides a level attachment point to the bike rack so the bike is not carried at an angle.
