Fork-Mount Bike Rack That is Both Channel-Mount and Clamp-On


I need a bike rack that fits two racks. I have an Adarac M-Series rack on my truck bed. The preference is that I can mount the rack using the T-slot in the crossbar. The second application is on a 2016 Subaru Outback factory rack. I would like to be able to use the rack on both vehicles. What are the racks that I should consider? I am interested in the fork mounted models. Thanks.

We have exactly what you need, as there is a fork-mount bike rack that can be used as either a channel-mounted rack or a clamp-on style rack.

The rack you need is the Thule FastRide Roof Bike Rack # TH95JV.

The FastRide comes with T-slot hardware that fits channels that are up to 20 mm x 20 mm (or about 7/8" x 7/8") as well as a clamp system so it will work for either application at any time. It is a fork-mounted rack like you wanted, and can carry bikes that are up to 37-1/2 lbs with a 3" tire.

I do recommend protecting your investment in the rack by adding locks, the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450200.
