Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack

Why We Like the Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack

Modern bicycles with disc brakes and suspension need a different kind of mounting system when we're amping up to tour. Instead of eyelets, the Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack by Thule uses ratcheting straps to securely wrap around seatstays and fork legs. Aluminum tubing keeps the weight low and it works with just about any bike for long-distance riding or commuting.

Not Thule Quality

The good- Cool design and you are able to adjust to about any configuration. Relatively simple, but it mounts easily. The bad- The rack doesn't stay in place. Maybe because I'm using this on a road bike with smaller seat stays? I've had to use gorilla tape on my seat stay to create a bench for the rack attachment points to sit on to keep the rack from sliding down. I'm not even loading much into the pannier. Which is the other problem, twice the Thule Shield pannier went into my rear spokes brining me to an immediate stop. There's nothing to keep the bag from swinging into the spokes when you get a decent bump. Just not a great design.

Nice Rack

The rack works great for a full float mt bike. I bit tight at the wheel for a 29r with a fender

New Bike Tour Rack

I have been using this new rack for several weeks and I must say I am definitely impressed. My new bike came without any front braze-ons so needing a front rack, I did not know what I was going to do.. The design is ingenious, Fits perfectly.I check it often before rides and it stays stable and secure. Thank you Thule.

Looks good and it works as well

Light weight and sleek. The previous rack I had was very wide so this is a nice change. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the installation was. Now I have a complete kit with the two Thule saddle bags that I already had.

A Super Trifecta Solution For Dirt Bike Riders

This Thule solution to carry bags and baskets is a sure winner in my books. I have a Surron Light Bee X Dirt Bike which I plan to use to make deliveries by where I live. I will note that I did have to remove my front fender in order for this work but that doesn’t bother me as I have tried to make the bike look as little as possible as a Dirt Bike considering regulations by where I live. However if your looking for a solution for carrying bags with your dirt bike- than look no further as this is it. I’ll be honest I did my research and there’s not many choices that work with Dirt Bikes as the manufacturers don’t make or market them for Dirt Bike riders. I am grateful to Thule for making a solution that works hands down the best in carrying bags and packages.

Rack is a nightmare to take on and off. Lost straps because it’s hard to set up the correctly and no spare parts are available. I’d avoid unless this is your last and only solution.

Texas to California with No Issues

I've put it through the wringer

I bought two of these Racks and two sets of the Thule Shield Panniers for my Houston to Sacramento BikePacking trip. The installation was not "Easy" due to the infinitely adjustability of the racks. But after adjusting, they were both sitting perfectly level and balanced. Along the way I removed the racks so that I could ride some trails. The removal and remounting was very easy since the adjustments had already been set. I had 30-35 pounds on each rack and I never had issues with the racks sliding or slipping. I would recommend this rack for anyone who wants a solid rack that is well worth the investment.

tough installation

I won't recommend it because the installation is maddeningly complex.

Works great with my Santa Cruz Chameleon

I've used it several times

I bought this rack to use on my Santa Cruz Chameleon for bikepacking. So far so good! I paired it with two Ortlieb gravel panniers and they work ok. The clip system is a little different between the Thule and Ortlieb, but it works. It says it can hold 50lbs, but I wouldn't trust that.
