    First Post - Bike Rack Question

    My next-door neighbor is moving, and she gave me this nice bike rack.

    I'm including pictures of several pieces.

    Can anyone tell me what I'm looking at exactly? What am I missing from this being complete?

    I'm hoping I can take this to a local bike shop and receive trade credit toward a bicycle, or sell it to someone here (I know this isn't the Buy/Sell Forum). At the very least, I'd like to find out what to eBay it as.

    I just need to know more about it.

    Thank you!

    Image 1 is everything I have.

    Image 2 - ??? Looks like just a rack with rubber grips. No mechanical parts.

    Image 3 - (2 of them) Theses have a "door handle" on each end. Can't determine what the mechanism would attach to. It doesnt seem to fit any of these other pieces.

    Image 4 - (2 of them) These have a big clamp-like thing at one end, the other is bare. One of the clamps has a key hole.

    Image 5 - (2 bars and wind deflector) These two bars are heavy duty, and attach to something, but I don't know what. One has a nice windshield attached to it.

    What do I do with this stuff?!

    Image 2: Resembles maybe a kayak carrier? Not sure.
    Image 3: Roof racks can either mount to holes in the roof, rails, or door jambs, it looks like this foot/podium uses the door as a mount. You likely will need a new fit kit.
    Image 4: These are bike carrier trays, If there is a clamp on the bottom on the side with the "skewer" that is what attaches to the crossbar. The other end of the tray should have a rear tire strap and some bolts and bar or strap that hold the other crossbar. You may be able to find the proper parts to make these usable.
    Image 5: These are crossbars, with the proper fit kit these can be attached to your car.

    My information is not complete or 100% accurate. I do not have a Thule, my experience is limited with my own rack.

    Thanks, Gibbsinator!

    That's definitely a start.

    I'm assuming a "fit kit" is meant for a specific make and model of car.

    The bike trays are missing the piece that grabs the bike (which seems important . . .).

    Yeah, I don't know how much of what you have is salvageable. I know that you can probably get a u bolt for the rear to tie it down to the rack. Maybe you can get a strap for rear tire.
