    Thule T2 Pro XT - does the lock rub on your frame and cause wear?

    I'm thinking about getting a Thule T2 Pro XT rack. I'm curious if the bike lock cable rubs against your frame while you drive and causes wear with the bike moving around?

    Thanks

    i have a Thule T2 Pro XT I was worried about the locks rubbing during driving also so I usually donít lock them up when driving and lock/unlock them when parking somewhere. I have seen people put a microfiber rag or something around their bike where lock would run but itís easy enough to put lock on and off.

    Cool. Sounds like i'd probably do the same thing. Was only wondering if its worth taking the risk in slow / stop-start traffic. Hopefully wont be in that situation much with the bike.
