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.

  • Thule rack for touring on modern bicycles suspension, disc brakes
  • Ratchet straps are utilized instead of eyelets for security
  • Constructed from aluminum tubing to keep weight low
  • Comes with rubber pads to protect frame finishes
  • Features a 50lb maximum weight capacity for gear

Works great with my Santa Cruz Chameleon

I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

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.

Sweet little set up to put some weight on the back of my hard tail Stache. Works well to mount a McCloud or fire rack with ease. I figured out a way to mount a Milwaukee M18 hedge trimmer! Minus one star... a bit over priced. But, I would buy another one.

Perfect!

Fits perfectly on my commuter! This was the only way I was getting saddlebags on my bike and made my commute a lot better. Very easy to install, lightweight, and great quality

Solid but not easy to install

If you manage to install it properly, it works as a charm, but you might need some skills to install it though, and the manual is not that clear.

Possibly the worst product ever...

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Five of us bought these racks for the San Juan Hut system trip from Telluride to Moab (7 days, but nearly all fire road). None of us carried more than 15 lbs of total weight. By the end of the first day, all of us had lost hardware (no thread lock on any bolts), including parts that were factory assembled. This led to broken pieces as well, and by the end of the trip every one of these was zip-tied together. Additionally, the ratchet mechanism jammed on mine, so I literally had to cut the straps off to get it free. These mount up nicely and definitely deserve credit for the general design, but reinforcing the plastic braces and actually putting some thread lock on the hardware are things thule should definitely invest in!

Update (on my own review): I let Thule know about the problem, and they were more responsive than any company I've ever seen (with their director of business development for their bike line reaching out personally, including a phone call). Apparently, those bolts were supposed to have thread lock on them, but a step was left out at the factory. They're sending a replacement (after a lengthy apology) and even told me they'd follow-up when they learn why steps were skipped. With the hardware issue resolved, I'd rate this product much higher. If you do order, just check the bolts for thread lock and if it's missing, contact Thule (or make a run to the hardware store) before you venture far from home.

I called Thule support and they said there are no replacement bolts (mine were not thread lock version) and that they are "not a hardware store". Rep also said that locking bolts are not required. That is in contrast to your experience.

According to the photo shown I'll get two items: Thule Pack ?n Pedal? 100016 (TR-1) Tour Rack and Thule Pack ?n Pedal? 100017 (SF-1) Side Frames when I order, is that correct?

This is the Thule Pack 'n Pedal Tour Rack. You can purchase the Pack n' Pedal Side frames as an accessory-they do not come with the Rack.

What's the maximum width for fitting on rear? I'd like to mount it on a fat-tire frame.

This rack will not fit around a fat-tire frame. Try looking at the OMM Sherpa.

Can this be fitted on the front and rear...

Can this be fitted on the front and rear of a dual suspension mountain bike?

Looks that way; one of the pictures has it mounted to a suspension fork. As far as the back, it'll kind of depend on how your bike's suspension is set up, since there are so many ways that manufacturers do that. The good thing is that you can always order it and, if it doesn't fit, return it for a full refund, no questions asked.

Can the Thule Pack'NPedal rack be mounted...

Can the Thule Pack'NPedal rack be mounted on a standard road bike (race bike)? Could yopu share some photos if any?

That all depends on the width and design of your seat stays. Another thing to consider is how much weight you really want to add to a bike that isn't designed with suspension in mind "narrow tires high psi and no added suspension might not be great on your rims or rear end

Hi Samson, Mike from Thule here, not sure what you decided on the rack, but it absolutely can go on a road bike. It is one of the most popular uses for the Thule racks because it makes it possible to use your high end road bike for touring. Here's a link to a 3min video where we install it on a road bike with carbon seat stays. ( it can also go on the front). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvwHWfqVrdQ

Use on Cross and Mountain Bikes

I've put it through the wringer

You can switch between bikes but it takes a few minutes and you have to change to support arms provided to covert. I have found it to be really solid and secure. I have been using Ortleib bags with the rack. The mounting is a bit tricky with those bags. I am thinking about getting the Thule pannier. This product revolutionizes how you carry stuff. You are no longer constraints to riding on crappy bikes with panniers.
