Thule UpRide is a universal bicycle carrier which promises quick and safe installation of bicycles of different sizes and especially of bikes with carbon frames. These can be transported upright and securely fixed with a hook on the front wheel. Thus, there is no contact with the frame, so that the bicycles remain well protected. The carrier can easily be relocated from one side of the vehicle to the other. The rear wheel is quickly and easily secured to the rail with a ratcheting wheel strap.
