Hi All

Bit of an update, around an hour after ordering the bits Thule got in touch and as a gesture of good will they would send me all the bit FOC, so cancelled the original order and the stuff ( lady was very understanding ) the stuff from Thule was here with in 2 days, all back together with a little added security Very Happy

Hi Andy.

I messaged them through FB & their web site asking if the end caps are fixed into the rack as my wheel clamp had been stolen, the FB reply was no there not fixed so can be easily removed, I was going to message them back and say well that's a p**s poor design, then Thule web site replied saying that the end caps are fixed into the rack and aren't easily removed Rolling Eyes but if someone is determined enough they would find away of getting them out, but would send me a replacement free of charge, I tried the end cap at the rear of my rack and you can very easily pull it out with your fingers, so when the new bit came I araldited them in and put some securing screws in, just hope nothing goes wrong with the wheel clamps now as it will be a bugger to get the end caps out Shocked Very Happy
Can't seem to get my photobucket to work but this is what I have done to secure them. https://goingdownhillfastsite.wordpress.com/2016/12/05/poor-end-to-a-f antastic-day/

Very much so, he took a mate of mine down the Reaper at Nant last weekend, my mate does a lot of enduro racing and thought he would be fine with a 12 year old he was wrong Dan told him there was a big drop coming up, Dan rode off it and Lee smacked his plumbs into the saddle Shocked he looked rather uncomfortable for quite a while Laughing
