The Best Way to Transport Your Pedego: Thule Bike Racks
January 21, 2021
Once you get a Pedego bike, the first thing on your mind is where you are going to ride to first. With a Pedego bike you can go further and longer than you would on a regular bike, but what if you really want to go the distance? You can easily transport your Pedego on a vehicle with the help of a bike rack, but with so many options out there it can be difficult to determine which will best suit your needs.
Choose the Best Rack for You
Choosing the best bike rack for your needs doesn’t have to be a difficult decision. Pedego always recommends Thule racks, which can be found at your local Pedego dealer. Not sure which one is best for you? The answer is completely personal preference and may depend on the type of Pedego you have or how many bikes you intend to carry at once, but at Pedego we suggest either the Thule Easy Fold 2 or Thule T2 Pro XT 2.
Thule, T2 Pro XT 2
The first rack we recommend is the Thule T2 Pro XT which is able to transport most Pedego models, as its single bike max weight limit is 60 pounds and total max weight limit is 120 pounds. It is ideal for carbon frames, mountain, downhill, and fat-tire bikes as it fits 20-29” wheels and up to 5” inch tires without adapters. This rack is optimized to secure bikes quickly without frame to frame contact, with the easy to use ratcheting arm. The Thule T2 Pro XT also provides complete locking convenience, as the bikes lock to the bike rack and the bike rack locks to the receiver with the integrated cable lock and lock knob. The bike rack easily folds when not in use and tilts away from your vehicle for rear access due to the easily accessible HitchSwtich lever. Don’t worry about installation either, because Thule has streamlined the process with their tool-free Auto-Attach system. This rack is perfect for carrying Pedego models like the Element and Ridge Rider models.
Thule Easy Fold 2
The Thule Easy Fold 2 is another great option for transporting your Pedego, as it works well with nearly all Pedego models. It’s single bike max weight limit is 65 pounds and has a total weight limit of 130 pounds, leaving you room to fit two bikes for transport. The Easy Fold offers a convenient removable ramp for easy loading and unloading of your Pedego bikes. The rack has detachable bike arms for ideal positioning and easy mounting of bikes, as well as being fully foldable for convenient mounting, handling, and storage. Never worry about your bike’s safety when it is on the Thule Easy Fold rack, because the rack has a 2-part lock system, locking both the bikes to the bike rack and the bike rack to the receiver with the integrated cable lock and lock knob. Additionally, the Easy Fold provides tool-free installation making it nearly effortless to mount the rack to your car. Once you have your bikes packed and ready to go, the only thing left to figure out is where your next destination will be!
Pedego recommends either of these two Thule racks for transporting your electric bikes. For more information on how to purchase the Thule T2 Pro XT 2 or the Thule Easy Fold 2, please contact your local dealer.
