Thule 598 Criterium Reviews
Dan Gabriel rated this item 5 out of 5 on 5/8/2012:
I got this bike holder on my AeroBlade bars with that X adapter within 45min. It is a very nice looking bike holder. I use it with my Giant MB. It is very solid and quiet. I went on a 4hour trip up to Muskoka without any issues. My speeds was between 90km/hr - 130km/hr. No issues, no slipping, no marks left on the bike frame. I have a lock set & I've locked my bike on the car & the 598 & the 598 to my AeroBlade bars. I'm 5'7 and it's easy for me to lift up the bike in place even after several hours of riding. I would highly recommend this bike holder to everyone. It also takes up very little space on your roof so you could have 3-4 of these on top. A+ product! Thanks Thule!

20" BMX bikes fit with NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!!! and 24" BMX cruisers and road bikes. Hope this helps anyone with multiple bikes. I searched and searched trying to see what would fit all my bikes and this is it.

I love this bike mount. It looks good and it's super easy to use. The tightening dial is easy to reach both for loading and unloading. I also really like how well it fits onto aero bars with the X-adapt bolts. Did I mention it looks good! Great bike mount.
