The fork-mount bike rack from Thule mounts to the roof of your vehicle to transport a single bicycle with a new and improved ETC™ clamping system.
Transport a single bicycle atop the roof of your vehicle with a quality Echelon™ rack from Thule. The fork-mount bike rack raises the bar on fork mounts with its new improved ETC™ (Equalized Twin Cam) clamping system. The Thule 518 has a centrally located cam lever and ergonomic adjustment knob to allow rapid loading/unloading of a bicycle. The Echelon™ bike rack fits all disc/suspension combinations with standard 9mm axles. Bikes with wheelbases up to 48" will fit onto the fork-mount bike rack. The dual locking design on the Thule rack locks the bike to the carrier and the carrier to the rack. The wheel tray on the Echelon™ fits tire widths up to 2-9/16" wide with high profile rims. Easily mount the Echelon™ rack to round or rectangular cross bars (mounting hardware included).
