Replacement Rubber Straps Compatible with Fat Bikes for use on a Thule Bike Rack


Are the replacement straps available in a longer length. I have purchased a fat bike and because of the frame design, a slightly longer strap would work better than the current set up. It’s a tight fit

I have a solution for you, but unfortunately there are no rubber straps longer than the 8-3/4" long Thule Replacement Straps for Cradles # TH534. The reason for this is that none of the racks like the Thule Apex that use these straps, are truly designed to carry a fat bike.

Depending on which bike rack you have, you may be able to use the Replacement HideAway Cradle Ratchet Straps for Thule Bike Racks # TH536, which are ratcheting straps that are compatible with the Hideaway cradles on the Thule Apex XT # TH9025XT and a number of other Thule bike racks.
