Rated 5 out of 5 by BetsyK Very sturdy gear
We bought this Thule bike rack to take our bikes around Tahoe and all kinds of trails in California and Nevada. It is an exceptionally well built, easy to use piece of equipment. If you plan to take it on and off your car with any regularity you should know that it is heavy. However, it is that weight and design that makes it so reliable. Two to Four bikes travel very well on the rack and the anti sway attachments keep the bike very still.

Excellent in every aspect except one. There is nothing included here to prevent the theft of the rack from the hitch. With the name Thule emblazoned for all to see, this item screams (perhaps) expensive. Other reviews including those elsewhere on the web trash the near $50 lock sold separately by Thule. After much searching and some experimentation I found a Master lock (model 527D) that works very well. It was about $15 from tractor supply company though I doubt they have it for the lowest cost. Hope this helps.

So excited to have this. It was easy to install. I like the anti-sway feature. It is fairly heavy because it is sturdy but nothing I can't handle by myself (50 year old, short woman). Because of my height (5'), I much prefer a hitch mount to a roof mount rack and this one works really well. It's a Thule!

This is a great product. We were tired of putting our bikes on the roof. This is easy to attach to the car and very easy to mount the bikes.

Heavier than I expected, but holds all of our (4) bikes very well. Have to do some adjusting with the seats and pedals to get them all on perfectly. So far, very happy.

We really like the carrier and so happy we invested in such a sturdy and stable piece of equipment. This should last us for many years! Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FF51 Excellent Bike Rack
We just purchased this for full price and used it for a long trip with two bikes - very happy with the purchase. It mounts onto the hitch easily (ratchet wrench is helpful), is stable, folds down (without bikes) to aid acess to the rear, and the new arc design of the cross bar helps separate the bikes. Overall, this is an excellent bike rack. Be aware that the rack itself is a bit heavy to lift on and move around. We bought the lock separately as added insurance for long trips

Rated 3 out of 5 by CamdenClan Thule "carry some" Bike Carrier
As these great carriers go on sale I feel it necessary to warn anyone who might be looking to carry a bike that's anything other than a man's style (cross bar) as they will not fit. While the sales team nor the website outline this restriction, I have to assume that most people purchasing this rack may be interested. The carrier only locks to the cross bar on a bike so you'll need to purchase an adapter to make any other bikes fit. Something to consider in the total price of your carrier as they are not inexpensive.

Well designed rack. Easy to put on, take off, and store. Holds Bikes very well. If you leave the rack on for longer stretches be sure to spray the threaded hitch pin with wd40 every few months.
A lockable hitch pin is sold seperately for this item. LL Bean was not selling it when I purchased my rack but I had little problem finding the correct Thule lock.
