Thule's sleek and versatile fork-mounted bike rack that conveniently transports your bikes with quick release skewers.
For years, the Swedish manufacturer Thule has set the benchmark when it comes to high-quality, stable and easy-to-use bike racks for bike transport on and behind cars. With the FastRide 564 roof racks, Thule has even simplified the fork mounting of quick-release bikes. The Thule AcuTight fastening lever with torque mechanism now automatically confirms when the fork is firmly secured to the carrier. So you don’t need to fumble around with quick-release levers. The rear wheel is secured with a classic, diagonal ratchet strap.
In addition, the bicycle carrier has the same design as the Thule UpRide (prod. code 2268859), which allows you to conveniently protect both the wheel and the frame from unauthorised access. The straps themselves are also secured to the traverse with a key. Those who prefer the better aerodynamics and stability of fork-mounted roof racks will also appreciate the simple fixation and flexible locking technology of the Thule FastRide 564. And if the boot is occupied, the matching Thule Front Wheel Holder (prod. code 2313656) will allow the front wheel to also fit easily on the roof rack.

Quick-releases have existed since the 1930s and originally allowed the rear wheel to be turned more quickly in order to change to the opposite "mountain sprocket". Then as now, installation required a certain minimum of care to ensure that the wheel was securely centred and firmly clamped. Years later, manufacturers introduced recesses in the dropouts to prevent the wheels from falling out in case of a loosened quick release. Since rumour has it that they were only introduced to avoid the litigiousness of American lawyers and accident-related million-dollar claims, the term "Lawyer Lips" has become established in American usage.
