Comments about 9042 Helium Aero 2 Bike:

I really like this rack. It was simple to put together, fit the hitch, and holds my bike securely in place. I like the idea of having the rack attached to the hitch and the bikes secured by a key. The downside is the rack has a bolt holding the hitch attachment to the rest of the unit that in theory could be removed with a wrench, thus providing less security.

Comments about 9042 Helium Aero 2 Bike:

Purchased this Thule product from EMS. Carrier is very nicely designed, very light, and looks to hold bikes securely. BUT IT DOES NOT FIT INTO A 1.25" hitch. (1 1/4") If your hitch measures 1.375" (1 3/8"), then I would consider the product. Otherwise, do not waste your time.

Thule was unresponsive. Over the course of two weeks, I spoke to three people, each of whom said they would get back to me by the next day. No such luck. So I returned the product to EMS, who were great.

My Honda hitch does accept other bike carriers designed to the 1.25" spec. I've used two other products. So I know this is not an issue with the hitch.
