Apex 3 Fat Tire Apex 2 Fat Tire Fat Tire Conversion Kit

We have heard from transit operators in snowy northern cities, beach communities, mountain towns, universities, and many places in between. We are pleased to offer a solution that works for any transit agency that wants to offer the widest range of bicycle accommodations to encourage more bicycle and bus trips.

Fat tire bicycle trays and support arms are compatible with all new and existing Apex 2 and Apex 3 transit bicycle rack frames, for any or all bicycle positions. They can be added or removed from a rack in minutes.

The fat tire option consists of a wider bicycle tray and wider support arm. The fat tire option is compatible with 24”-29” diameter wheels and all tire widths up to 5.5", including narrow road bicycle tires. For smaller wheel diameters, such as 16" and 20", the standard Apex trays must be used.

Apex Standard/Fat Combination Racks

Any Apex rack can be ordered as a standard/fat tire combination rack or retrofitted to become a combination rack. We encourage transit agencies to select standard vs. fat tire bicycle positions based on the anticipated mix of bicycle types in their service area. In areas where the bicycle racks are commonly used with bicycles with wheel diameters smaller than 24", which includes many BMX bicycles, folding bicycles, and children’s bicycles, we recommended offering at least one standard position per rack. In areas where there is significant use of fat tire bicycles, the transit agency may want to choose all fat tire positions, which may be installed seasonally or year-round.

Why Add Transit Racks?

While every city and municipality is unique, as the inventors of the most popular Transit Racks, we've learned that there are common threads.
