        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.

        Comments about 9042 Helium Aero 2 Bike:

        We were looking for a lightweight bike rack as we live in second floor apartment with no garage. This bike rack is the answer it is so lightweight and compact - - we had no problem carring it up and down the stairs. It is very easy to put on the car and remove - - less than 5 minutes. We have a mountain bike and a road bike and it held both securely. I can't say enough good things about this bike rack. I just wish it wasnt so expensive.
