    Good for Commuting and Day Trips…NOT Good for Extended Travel, August 1, 2014

    This rack system employes a clever solution to the problem of mounting paniers on a full-suspension mountain bike. I purchased the rack for a 7 day bike trip from Telluride CO to Moab UT. While this rack may be well suited for commuting and light overnight camping…it did not hold up to the rigors of an extended trip with heavy loads. By the end of the trip, half of the main mounting bolts had been replaced by zip ties (so glad I brought those) as screws kept working loose during the day despite the morning ritual of checking tightness of every bolt. Also, with heavy loads in wet conditions on rough roads, the rack tends to creep down the frame.

    Although a separate product, the Side Frames are also better suited to commuting and light travel over smoother surfaces. The rails were too flimsy for substantial loads. The screws worked themselves loose and caused a bag ejection at one point.

    Until I can find a better solution for extended travel…this rack will suffice.

    I purchased this rack as a commuting accessory to be attached to my Santa Cruz Stigmata Cyclocross bicycle. My typical commute is about 14-5 miles round trip everyday. The streets where I travel are not optimal, some have speed bumps, others have uneven, rough pavement as it is expected in the far reach areas of Queens and Brooklyn.

    While the system can be convenient, I found it has a flaw, especially if I am riding with just 1 pannier attached. The rack shift to the side where the pannier is located, especially if the pannier tends to carry weight. This happens regardless of ratcheting system being especially tightly tensioned. Therefore, once in a while, I need to put the ratcheting key back and loosen all 4 ratchets in order to straighten the platform and align it to the bicycle. Perhaps this can be avoided if I always travel with 2 panniers, evenly balanced but who travels with 2 if everything fits in just one?

    Moreover, about 1 week ago, I got home and I noticed that one the screws that tie the metal arms to the plastic sections of the rack and to the platform support was MIA. One of the arms in one side was lose while the other held on to the frame or else it would have been a disaster. Fortunately, I had an iron hex screw to replace it and it has held steady.

    Finally, the very strong magnetic attachment system to the rack is strong when and if the roads are even BUT, you will notice that the pannier back will slightly swing out and hit the rack when the roads are rough, the pannier will flap against the rack as it detaches and attaches back. This is especially noticeable when I go over speed bumps. Once in a while, I have to look back to make sure that the pannier is still attached to the rack. The magnetic system is flawed and it needlessly necessitates that the pannier bags have a metal plate in the back, making the pannier heavier than what it is. Perhaps Thule should rethink this aspect of the system.

    Perhaps I am being overtly critical of the system BUT for what it does, attaching itself to bicycles that were NEVER meant to carry significant weight, perhaps I ought to overlook this flaws.

    Maybe next time around, Thule will improve on the design in order to earn the missing stars.
