    Thule Big Mouth

    Just bought a new Spesh '09 Enduro Comp....and now realize that my Thule rack system, which i just got only a year ago, is now obsolete since i can't do fork mounted anymore (the Specialized has the through axle wheel system).

    So i've got to get something new - something upright. I was looking at the Thule Big Mouth. Anyone have experience and like it? dislike it?

    thanks

    I have two Big Mouths, bought them used three and a half years ago. They do their job, don't damage the bikes and hold them well enough so I guess I could recommend them. I always lock them though, just so they cannot open while on the road from bumps and vibration. It can happen, especially when they get older and that every pivot gets looser.

    Your Thule rack is not obsolete. Hurricane Components makes a device called the Fork Up, that will adapt Specialized 25mm through axle, or any other "non-standard" fork into your fork mounted rack. www.hurricanecomponents.com
