  • Thule Outride 561 Roof Fork Mount Cycle Carrier is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roof Cycle Carrier - Fitting The cycle carrier works fine, as it should. The most impressive part of the process was the professionalism and dedication shown by the Halfords fitter. I was surprised by the effort he put in, to ensure that the roof rack and the cycle carrier were perfectly fitted and the training I got on how to use the kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stability Due to a limited number of rear mounted bike racks for my car I decided to go for a roof mounted one. My perception was that folk mounted ones would give better stability and having used it once my bike was held firmly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, could have better security Great product, much more stable than a frame mounted rack, feels very solid, however when locked the Lock could be levered off by an equipped thief as other than the Barrel it is all plastic, I also use a cable lock around the frame and roof rack as an extra deterrent. The one key system is rather useful when you have various Thule products. It contacts the spoiler of my Fiesta ST when I open the boot as the rail is longer than I will ever need I'm going to cut it down so it can open my boot further.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Audi Q5 The product itself is great. However when fitted to my Audi W5 due to the position of the roof rack the bike rack doesn't allow you to open the boot fully. The bike rack itself is quite long and means that the boot hits when opening. I will most likely shorten these myself with a saw so that it prevents this from occurring again. The actual product is great though.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from ok quality average, not the right product for me. wasn't what i was looking for

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for carbon frames Easy put on and take off the car with one less clamp then my old frame clinchers. However I have experienced some disturbing rattling which I haven't been able to trace so may be not such a good thing. I confess I am super-sensitive in this respect. Bikes have to travel backwards otherwise unable to open hatchback. Bikes are easy to load and unload. I have two and I've yet to find a way to switch the side of the lock on the front wheel clamp so I have to lock and unlock one by touch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thule Outride 561 Well designed and manufactured, gives a far more solid fixing than frame mounts. The outride bars are not adjustable as to their position on the roof bars, so as my Honda CRV is fixed mounts my roof bar cannot be moved, and the length of the outride bars means I wouldn't be able to fully open the car boot. I therefore have reversed mounted the bars so the bikes front fork mount is positioned at the back of the car. Locks are on the QR mechanism and where the front of the unit mounts the roof bars. QR is easily adjustable for different fork widths and comes with 20mm additional fixing. Would suggest using stickers to pre mark, the key, outride bars and position on roof bars for different bikes to make it easier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good option for those who do not want to fix a clamp to their bike frame. Easy to fit and use. Robust materials used. Obviously need to store the front wheel elsewhere. It locks the carrier to the roof bar and the front fork to the carrier. I've had to use some sticky tape to eliminate a rattle between the roof bar and the rear clamp.
