Roof-Mounted Bike Rack for Aero Bars to Replace Thule 1050-09


I have a 2013 VW Jetta SW with Thule aero bars. Can I mount my old Thule 1050-09 bike racks used on square bars onto the aero bars? Thanks

I checked and there is no adapter available for the old Thule 1050-09 bike rack that will allow it to attach to aero bars that are on your 2013 VW Jetta SportWagen so the best we can offer is a new roof-mounted bike rack.

You can get a new, quality rack without breaking the bank, depending on the style you want. For a basic, cost-effective option there is the Malone Pilot TC ST Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount # MPG2103.

Or if you wanted to upgrade to something that is a little higher-end, there is a frame-mounted option from Thule, the Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack - Frame Mount - Clamp On or Channel Mount # TH598004.

I have added links below to video reviews of each of these racks for you to check out, and also added a link to our entire selection of roof-mounted racks for you to take a look at if you'd like.
