          Comments about THULE 532 Ride-On Adapter:

          I just bought a mini-van to replace my gas guzzling full size truck...rather than carry my bike inside the vehicle, I wanted a cost effective means to install a roof rack. The Thule ride-on adapter was the only roof rack system which easily attached to my van's installed roof rack system and was compatible with many Yakima and Thule bike carrier attachments. For [$]it's tough to find a reliable/stable roof rack system. The only disadvantage is that is effective width is only 32" which is more than enough to accommodate two bike carriers.

              This is great if you just want a cheap and simple add-on to your factory rack. It's only as stable as your factory cross bars and the bars themselves aren't long enough to carry a cargo box along with your bike or other item. But compared to the more expensive options, if you're just looking for a simple way to haul a bike or two- this is definitely an effective product.
