Are Wider Cradles Available for a Thule Passage Trunk Mount Bike Rack

Question:

I have a Thule 910 Trunk Mounted bike rack with the standard cradle. I just bought a new bike with a wide frame diameter ~2 and that new bike hardly fits the standard cradle. Is there a wider replacement cradle? If yes, would that replacement cradle still accommodate my current anti-sway cage? Thanks in advance.

The only other Thule cradle that would fit would be the T3 cradle # 853-5829 which also fits on 1 inch diameter arms. But I do not think it will be as wide as you need (cradle width on the padded surface is about 2 inches). You would also need different anti-sway cradles, # 753-3530. You may need to use an adapter bar like # TH982XT in order to properly secure the bike to the cradles and just keep the cradles you have.

The adapter bar is made for alternative frames so you can safely mount them to a bike rack. I have included a link to a video showing how the adapter works.
