Bike Carrier For Carbon Frame
I will mention that in terms of carbon bikes, some individuals have concerns about attaching the bike to the rack using the bike frame. This is exactly how trunk mounted racks work. With a roof rack and/or a hitch rack, the bike has the option of being attached to the rack by it’s wheels.

Bike carrier for carbon frame.
Another option is a tyre holding carrier, where all the clamping is done around the wheels of the bike, so the carrier doesn’t touch the frame of the bike at any point. They’re also good for non-standard frame sizes. Thule now produce a carbon frame protector for the Thule ProRide 598 frame holding carrier, so if you’d rather not have to remove.
It does not go around the bike frame. The product is a pain to fit and tends to ping off. It is just a piece of elastic and a rubber material at an extortionate price. You are far better served using bubblewrap. Better yet switch bike carrier. I reluctantly changed carrier for my carbon bikes.
There’s a cycle tourist with a carbon bike a bit heavier than yours here so it can be done. Most of the carbon bike people tape their frames where the bag will rub to prevent the bag slowly grinding through the frame, but that seems to be the main concern.

It fits all types of frame geometries and is easily adjustable with no loose parts The adapter has a soft TPE rubber liner to avoid scratching the bike frame Only to be used with Thule bike carriers with a torque limiter knob (e.g. Thule ProRide, Thule EasyFold, Thule EuroClassic G6, and bike carriers with the Thule AcuTight Knob 528 accessory)
so all the Tour bikes are carbon and go on roof carriers. Is a modern carbon frame likely to get crush damage in a Thule 591 carrier ? (road bike, but presume no different for mtb)
There are many options for carrying a bike with a carbon fiber frame but the Thule Doubletrack Platform Bike Rack is not recommended as it uses the frame to secure the bike to the rack. Your best option would be a platform style bike rack that holds the bikes at the wheels like the Swagman Semi, # S64686. You would not have to worry about the.

Easy-to-load, heavy-duty rack grips 3 bikes by the wheels with no frame contact so it’s perfect for e-bikes and carbon-frame bikes. Extra-wide, swinging trays accommodate fat bikes. Removable tray converts rack into a 2-bike carrier.
Not a lying on top of the four bike arm with nice rubber overstraps and a padded hanger but a clamp down with large thumbscrews C L A M P. I was not going to clamp my nice carbon bike in that thing so I bought a Thule 982XT Frame Adapter that goes between the stem and seatpost of the bike giving you a place to hang or clamp the bike to whatever.
I have a bike carrier that secures the bikes by hanging the bike from the top tube. You lay the bike’s top tube on the holder and tighten down the top piece to hold the bike securely. Is there a problem with using this type of carrier with a carbon frame bike? Edit: Here’s a photo of it: [IMG] [/IMG]

The safest way to carry luggage on a carbon frame is to use a trailer, like the BOB trailers. Carbon frames are very strong, but each area of the frame is designed and tested for the loads it expects from a given direction. Adding luggage to a frame not designed for it, i.e. Without braze-one or threaded mounts, is generally a bad idea.
Best bike rack for a carbon frame? Roof racks seem too inconvenient, so am most likely looking at a hitch rack. From everything I’ve read, the platform-style bike racks are the best for this type of need.

Thule Carbon Frame Protector Protect your carbon fibre bike whilst travelling with the Thule Carbon Frame Protector. The fixation pressure is distributed over a large surface area to minimise damaging your bike’s frame. It fits all types of frame geometries and is easily adjustable with no loose parts. Thule Carbon Frame Protector Extra Info
Just a word of warning, as someone mentioned above- I’ve been clamping my carbon frame in a Thule roof mounted carrier and wrapping an old chain stay protector around it to give it a bit of padding, travelling down the motorway yesterday I hit a bump in the road and it must have slipped out of the clamp as suddenly the bike was hanging down off.
The Thule Upride 599 roof mounted bike rack is also recommended for bikes with sensitive frames such as carbon, since it clamps onto the bike’s wheels. The Thule ThruRide is a fork-mounted roof mounted bike rack that clamps onto the original Thru-axle and can support most Thru-axle bikes made out of carbon.

Even more leverage is experienced at the dropout point when taking the bike off the rack unless it’s properly free.[/quote] I guess you’d probably need to be cornering at around 100mph+ for such a scenario to cause any problems. I’m not aware of any evidence of frame/fork related issues as a result of using a fork-clamp carrier on a carbon fork.
Keep your carbon bike scratch free with this simple Thule Carbon Frame Protector. Rigid, rubber backed ribs conform to the shape of your bike, spreading clamping forces and improving grip. The versatile carbon frame protector fits all frame types and geometries.
Which bike carrier for a carbon frame? hoohaar Posts: 40. February 2012 edited July 2017 in Road buying advice. So I have managed to find some roof bars for my car, now I just need to purchase the bike carrier. Can anyone recommend a good one? Are the ones that fasten to the forks better than the frame clamps?
