The Thule 822XT Bed-Rider Fork Mount Carrier transforms your truck bed into a fork mount bike carrier for easy, convenient and secure transport. Designed for two bicycles of any size of kind, this carrier utilizes a combination of telescoping bar technology and easy-to-install Thule Low Rider Fork Blocks with fork clamping skewers that quickly and securely attach to bikes via the dropouts exposed along their front forks when the front tire is removed. Additional features include: the ability to both lock bikes to the carrier and the carrier to the truck bed with additional lock cylinders, compatibility with full size and small pick-up beds and tool-free installation.

Tool-free Transformation of Truck Beds Into Fork Mount Carriers

The Thule 822XT Bed-Rider Carrier is a fork mount bike carrier that is designed to quickly transform your truck bed into a mobile 2-bike rack that can be expanded to transport even more bikes as the need arises. Built around a telescoping bed bar, the Thule 822XT Bed-Rider Fork Mount Carrier features virtually tool-free installation with no drilling or bolting required and utilizing only an included tamper-proof wrench for its quick installation.

The telescoping bed bar of the Thule 822XT Bed Rider Fork Mount Carrier extends out to fit almost any size truck bed, large or small, with the furthest points of the bar capped with perpendicular angled rail feet. To attain a firm hold the bar is placed near the front of the bed, but not flush against it, with the rail feet resting along the edge of the side walls of the bed, but not overly tight. Next, with the cam handle clamp at one end of the bar open, the middle portion of the bar is rotated, which extends the bar tightly against the truck side walls on both sides. Once firmly in place the cam handle can be clamped shut and locked using a lock option installed in the handle. This secures the entire carrier to the truck bed. Once the bar is securely in place any remaining lock cylinders should be installed into the two low rider fork blocks. (Additional lock cylinders may need to be purchased to secure the cam handle clamp and the two Low Rider Fork Blocks) The Low Rider Fork Blocks, with the fork clamping skewers running through them, are then attached directly to the bed bar using the included tamper-free wrench. Bikes are mounted to the Low Rider Forks Blocks via your bikes' front fork dropouts exposed when their front tires are removed and stowed in the the trunk bed. Once clamped into place by the skewer running through the blocks, bikes can be locked to the carrier with the lock embedded in the Low Rider Block.

About Thule

Thule was founded in 1942 by the Thulin family, when Eric Thulin, a true lover of the outdoors, put the Thule name on a pike trap he designed and began to sell in Scandinavia. It wasn't long before he added other practical items to the company's portfolio. By the 1960s, the company began to concentrate on car-related products, including its first roof rack. The Thulin family sold Thule to the publicly listed company Eldon in 1979, and it has continued to grow both organically and through acquisitions ever since. The Thule Group is a world leader in providing transport solutions for an active life.

Easy install; took minutes to adjust and rack my bike.

The locking mechanism that i'd stick my key into wouldn't hold any of it in place.

You want me to trust this will hold my expensive carbon bikes in place?

To those reviewers who had problems with the locks - read the instructions carefully. They're not incredibly clear and the locks don't work the way I thought they would so I made my life difficult at first by thinking I knew better than the instructions (yes, I'm a guy). Eventually I figured out how Thule had designed the locks and they worked flawlessly. They're not the strongest locks in the world and I think they'd maybe slow a knowledgeable thief down a few minutes at best.

Installation is very easy once you've got past the 'fun' of assembly. You basically slide the two halves apart until it's slightly narrower than your truck bed, put the mount across the truck bed, and tighten it up by turning it until you can't turn it anymore. Then you lock it in place so it can't be unturned and loosened. If you're lucky the fork mounts are on top. If they aren't you have to decide whether to keep turning or back-off until they are.

The mount is adequatly robust and should stand up to normal wear and tear. If you take a hammer to it, it will break. One reviewer seemed surprised by this. I have a carbon road bike and a big recumbent attached to mine with no problems. Even on the bumpiest roads both bikes stay in place and the mount hasn't shown any tendency to slip although every now and again I have to rotate the mount so the fork mounts are on top - they want to roll towards the back of the truck by 10 or 20 degrees which is a bit worrying.

I still run a heavy cable from one side of the truck, through the bikes, and lock it to the other side of the truck. If the mount fails the cable will stop my bikes from leaving the bed and it's a second deterrent for would-be thieves.

The Thule bedrider 822 has worked well for me. I drive a Honda Ridgeline and the bedrider was a good match for it. I have been able to transport up to two bicycles (A Giant and a Raleigh)with no problems. Of course, I further secure them with tie downs (peace of mind). As far as the delivery was concerned, The Bike Rack delivered as promised and on a timely manner. Shopping through Amazon is the only way buy things these days for me.

This was almost exactly what I was looking for in a bike rack for my pickup truck. No drilling. It is held in place by tension and rubber pads. I drove about 700 miles with two bikes on it without any issues. The only thing I would like to see is a way to actually lock the bikes to the rack. If I could have done that I would have given this a 5 star rating.

A person that bikes with our group had one of these racks in his pick-up and gave it rave reviews. I bought this along with the wheel forks on line. If you own a pick up and do a lot of biking this is the rack system to have. It has locking fork skewers for the bike fork...eliminates the grab and run. The wheel forks allow the wheels to sit on the bed so they are kept out of the way. Bar itself locks to make it very difficult to do a drive-but grab and run. If the thief really wants it (s)he will get it. This just slows them down so they will go to someone else's unsecured bike rack and not spend the time on yours. This is a great unit and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I was really scared with the size of the box that arrived home (6feet tall!). All components were carefully packed inside the box but some good space might have been saved (less trash).
The instruction manual makes mounting really easy, no way to get it wrong. My truck bed is smaller than most huge trucks so I had to place the rack as close as possible to the cabin window to ensure the bike fitted, this didn't compromise by any means the installation.
Just adjust the bar width and fine tune the pressure on the sidewalls by twisting the rack itself. After it is well fitted just place the forks making sure the bikes have a distance between the handle bars.
Inside the pack you'll find 3 locks that will be used to: (1) lock the rack to the truck bed and (2) to lock the forks (no need to purchase additional locks!). Thumbs up to Thule that ensured 1 key for the 3 locks!
As sometimes I travel through rough roads with my bike on the rack for additional safety I use 1 cargo strap per bike that I tie on the saddle post to the back of the truck bed.
Fitting the bike is really easy, remove the front wheel, fit the fork, lock it and ready to go!

READ THE ENTIRE REVIEW
I got this and installed it last week. I am a bit slow so after I worked out all the kinks it took me about 30 mins.I have no problems with it initially. The bar itself did turns a little during transit and this results in the bike falling in the tray of the van but thats because I did not tighten it firmly enough or so I thought.

Its a relatively attactive piece and was simple enough to install. I read reviews about it not being made out of good material and this turned out to be true. The rack appears to be well constructed.

UPDATED 1st JUNE 2011: The item failed miserably after use for 2 weeks. First, one of the locks simply broke (Not very well made). Then I was forced to not use it as much since the entire rack would rotate on its axis while my bike was still attached and the vehicle was in motion. Thankfully this resulted in the bike lying on its side but within the tray. Finally, without load, the item simply broke and could no longer tighten.

It should be noted that I still think its a great idea, but obviously the makers of the product need to use better quality components and work out the bugs. This item still has a long way to go. I now have to go through the hassle of paying 80USD to have the item returned. Amazon customer service was ON POINT with this one. Walked me through the returning process and they were very helpful. The guys at Thule also responded but I dealt with the people at Amazon instead. Great service, poor product. I cannot recommend this in good faith. Dont buy.
