    Anyone have the new 29er Compatible Saris Thelma?
    I liked this rack and considered purchasing it last year, but it was not too 29er compatible. Looks like that has been resolved for this year. Interested in any impressions. Thanks!

    Yup I've got it. What would you like to know about it?

    I have the 3 bike version. I've had some road bikes and 26ers on it no problem so far. I've yet to throw a 29er on it but I've got some friends who have them who may let me borrow their bike just to test it out.

    So far the rack is great. Very solid and holds things securely. Recently did a 2000 mile road trip with it and it went off without a hitch.
    My only minor complaint is that if you run a narrow mtb tire things can get a little bit wobbly. The bike isn't going anywhere thanks to the straps but it's still a little disconcerting.
    If you want pics just let me know!

    That's great to hear! I almost picked up one last year, but the sales guy found out that they weren't very 29er compatible and said this year's model would be. Have to haul around 24er, 29er, SS 29er, 26er--with 1.5s for our rail trail, and road bikes. Pics are always great. Good to see how they fit in a non-corporate photo situation.

    Pictures will be great. I was wondering about spacing between bikes for mountain bikes. Do bikes touch each other and/or have handlebar/saddle interference issues, esp on the 3 bike version?
