Will Thule Echelon Roof Mounted Bike Rack Work With Factory Aero Crossbars


Hello. I purchased a Thule echelon fork mount bike rack but the problem is I only have factory cross bars oval, no slot/t-bar I bought the xadapt9 kit and I can get the back of the roof rack but is there any adapter to for the front onto the roof rack? The adapters holes are too far apart to use in the front. Is there a smaller adapter I could use so I can attach bike rack to my cross bars? Thank you so much for your time


Expert Reply:

The Thule Echelon Roof Mounted Bike Rack is only compatible with aero crossbars that have a top channel when using the Thule Load Bar Adapter for Peloton and Echelon Bike Racks part # THXADAPT9. If you don't have top channels (most factory crossbars don't) you will have no other choice but to buy a new rack, the Thule FastRide Roof Bike Rack part # TH95JV is a great option for this and is compatible with factory channel-less aero crossbars.
