Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised The previous reviewer has his/her rails installed incorrectly. The buckles face the correct direction if the rack is set up correctly. I had to take the buckle assembly apart to move the buckle to the second detent, which works for both my fat bike and my 29er. I haven't tried to use the buckle with a road bike yet, but I think it would probably work fine. It has a spacer that goes on top of the rim to take up some of the extra length of the strap. I wish it was a little cheaper, but it works well and holds my fat bike securely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware-incorrect design This Fat Tire kit does not install correctly on the T2 hitch rack. The Instructions call for, and you really want, the buckle on the rear wheel holder to face out, away from the car. BUT, the groove molded into this holder that allows it to slide over the safety bolt, is on the wrong side, thus the buckle faces in, towards the car. If the rear wheel holder is mounted in order for the buckle to face out, the rear wheel holder then is unable to slide over the safety bolt and all the way back, to accommodate longer wheel-base bikes. This part is designed/manufactured incorrectly and I just paid $50 for it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well Overall the product works well. There are two different buckle positions. One for fat tire bikes and another setting for regular bikes. It comes with a spacer to make it work with road bikes too. 1 star deduced for the price, $50 seems a bit steep.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rear tire strap not long enough I bought this to hold some rental fat bikes to ride in the snow. The front tire fit into the trough and the side arm fit over the front tire just fine. When i tried to strap in the rear the strap wasn't close to reaching the latch on the other side. I had to ask the shop for an old inner tube to tie it down with. I wouldn't buy this again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took a While... Figured it Out! You do need to adjust the section with the strap to accommodate a fat bike - it comes out of the factory not right for a fat bike. Once this is done, it fits over a 4.8" tire just fine. Initially, we did not think the Thule ratchet arm was long enough to accommodate our new fatties but with an adjustment in how you load the bike, it fits fine. We have a Thule T2 916XT and the adaptor arms have the cable coming out of the end - THIS IS IMPORTANT. The arms with the cable coming out of the end are slightly longer than the original arms that came with the older T2 racks. (It is possible to find these newer replacement arms elsewhere online). In order to load the bike, set the bike in the rack and secure the back tire or have someone hold. Then lift and LOWER the front tire off the rack to the side opposite the arm. This will allow you to raise the arm over the tire without interfering with the front fork (we have Bluto forks on our awesome Borealis Crestone Fat Bikes - Small frames). Then lift and set the tire in the tray and finish the job of securing the arm over the tire. Locks in place.
