THULE ThruRide fork-mount bike rack makes loading your thru-axle bike easy and secure, without the need for any extra adapters. Loading is simple from the start, allowing you to mount the front thru-axle on the ground before lifting and loading the bike on the bike rack. Once you've placed the axle in the wide-jaw clamp, you adjust the precision dial to fine-tune the grip before closing the throw-hood. This ensures a firm and secures grip on your bike without the risk of damage to the fork. The rear-wheel cradle can be slid along the length of the rack to accommodate different bike lengths. The wheel is held securely in place thanks to a ratcheting strap with padding to protect the wheel rim.
