    Thule T2 hitch rack?

    Anyone know if the front tire clamp bar rubs on a modern suspension fork or not?

    I just bought that rack last week and it is the best investment ever. It is sooooooooooo easy to just plop the bike on. The bar that goes around the front tire DOES NOT rub on the fork at all. It touches my fork but NOT on the stanchion. It holds it firmly (so long as you push down until it clicks in good) so the bike does not move. I know it is expensive but SO worth not dealing with removal of the front tire (especially with disks) and the bikes do not touch each other. It kinda sticks out a lot from the SUV but still is the best rack compared to the kind where you hang the bike by the frame.

    To see the bikes I have on that rack, click on my sig. You can see the suspension forks there.

    Hey Tweek. I am in Salina, so we are neighbors. I have the Mod Series which is basically the same rack. There will be no clearance issues with that rack. You can secure the front wheel clamp at any position on the wheel that you desire. It just looks wierd in the drawing.
