    Roof Racks for long wheelbase

    Looking for a roof rack to accommodate long wheelbase bikes (just under 50) without taking front wheel off . Most of the racks are listed as max 48 wheelbase. Thanks.

    I believe the Thule UpRide goes up to a 1250mm wheelbase, 49+ inches.

    I've used both an older Thule Sidearm (currently using) and a 1Up USA roof rack on several modern XL 29 bikes. My Ripmo (1249mm wheelbase) fit fine on both racks.
    Just like a raindrop, I was born to fall.

    My Yakima frontloader seems fine with every bike I've put on it including long wheel base DH bikes. Can't find the max wheel base on their website so I don't know what the limit is. Only limit I do know is 20-29, and up to 3" wide tires
