Thule Fastride rooftop fork mount bike carrier with locks - $180 (Earlysville/Charlottesville)

bicycle type: road
frame size: 53 x 9 x 4 in
wheel size: 29 in
bicycle frame material: alloy
make / manufacturer: Thule
model name / number: Fastride
For sale is a slightly used Thule Fastride rooftop bike carrier for those who prefer fork mount racks. I do because they're more stable than others. Two trips only, I'm finally realizing I'm getting a little old and definitely too short for rooftop anything. I switched to a hitch mount.

Highlights:
I love the ratcheting system that tells you when the forks are tightened down. It's also reversible so bike can go on either driver or passenger side.
The cable lock! Great system. Locks and key are included. Separately they would cost $50.
It's light, just over 7 lbs (rated for bikes to 40lbs)
Mounts to any crossbars - round, square, aero, factory. The Thule T-track mounts are super easy on and off. If you have Thule Slidebar, Wingbar Evo, Probar Evo or Aeroblade you're set. If not the alternate mounting system for non-track, round and square bars is included. Compatible with disk brakes. Thru-axle compatible with accessory kit.

Youtube is your friend for mounting instructions. The instructions provided by Thule are absolutely terrible. For anyone interested in purchasing I'm happy to mount to your crossbars when we meet if you like.
