THULE Pack’n Pedal Tour Rack and Optional Side Frames

PLEASE NOTE:  Most of the photos show the THULE “Tour Rack” with the Optional Pannier Side Frames attached.  The price list below shows prices with or without the Side Frames.

  • FEATURES . . .
  • The THULE Tour Rack has a large top platform with numerous slots for tie-down straps to securely hold your rack-top pack in place.
  • The highly adjustable lower attachments allow a level fit on most fork and rear seatstay angles.
  • The Tour Rack can be used front or rear.
  • Once set up, this rack is easily removed and reinstalled.  We have often had requests for racks that can be installed for a weekend trip, and then removed when a rack is not needed.
  • A ratcheting strap mounting system securely attaches the rack to seatstays and fork tubes.  No mounting bolts or eyelets are necessary.
  • The mounting system is surprisingly rigid!
  • The Optional Pannier Side Frames can be adjusted fore and aft to help you adjust pannier heel clearance!  And you can adjust the height of the Side Frames for vertical clearance, especially nice for trail riders.  See the lateral and vertical side rail adjustments in the photos above.
  • Weight ‒ Rack Only:  990 grams (34.9 Ounces)
  • Weight — Side Frames Only:  430 grams  (15.1 Ounces)
  • Weight with Pannier Side Frames Included:  1420 grams  (50 Ounces)
  • Load Capacity Rack-Top:  25kg  (55 lbs)
  • Load Capacity for Top Side-Rails:  18kg (39 lbs 11ounces) . . . This means your panniers can weigh up to 18kg per pair.  The total rack load with panniers and top bag combined can weigh up to 25kg.  This is by no means a recommendation for how much you should carry, especially on bikes that were never intended to carry a touring load!  This load capacity does tell you that the THULE racks are very sturdy!
  • Top Platform Dimensions:  12 3/4 inches X 4 15/16 inches  (32.3cm X 12.5cm)
  • Lateral Tire Clearance:  80mm or more, depending on how high the rack is mounted.  (80mm = 3.15 inches)
  • Top Rail Diameter:  10mm
  • Top Rail Length:  10 1/4 inches  (26cm)
  • Side Frame Dimensions:  12 inches tall x 11 1/8 inches wide  (30.5cm X 28.25cm)
  • Optional Accessories:  Pannier Side Frames;  Pannier Top Rail Extensions for extra heel clearance (most riders will NOT need these extensions)
  • EVERYONE ASKS . . . “What’s the difference between the THULE Tour Rack and Sport Rack? . . . The most important difference is that the Tour Rack has optional Pannier Side Frames available.  The Pannier side frames will not fit on the Sport Rack.
