    Thule long wheels straps?

    I have just got a new downhill bike which has a long wheel base. I just tried to fit it to my Thule EuroClassic 928 G6 LED but the wheel straps are not long enough to attach and secure the wheels. I managed to get it on in the end to get it home but needed to let the tyres down and put it across both rails.

    Does anyone know if they (or anyone else) make a longer strap or is there a way of making it fit?

    So Ive just had an email from Thule saying that basically its tough that the bike doesnt fit their top of the range bike rack!

    They have added longer straps that are 14.5" long a year ago because of this as a know issue as they used to be 12"!

    I now have no idea what to do as I cant see an easy bodge to fit the bike to the rack.

    anyone had this issue?

    The bike is an XL Santa Cruz V10 Carbon (image attached)

    I had a similar problem. I got a rack
    where the wheels sit low in the channel but because of the tyre width I could only get one click on the straps and I wasn't happy with that so I bought a set of these to run over my wheels.
