        Comments about 9043 Helium Aero 3 Bike:

        I had an older model that was much heavier. I am very happy with Thule that they replaced my old rack at not cost to me for a newer version of my old rack (thank you THULE!). I am hoping the lock won't jam on this one, as the previous one had done and then I could not get my bikes off without cutting the cable?! The lock on this one is designed a bit different from the male/female connector one I had previously. I don't really like the two pieces this new model comes in, however. It seems flimsier to me in that the top piece is not possible to get solidly stable, it jiggles a bit where it sits down on the two rectangular knobs that stick out. The part the bikes sit on is light but the hitch piece is heavy so once you have both parts together, it's pretty heavy and I would rather have one solid study rack than a two piece one with one flimsy end. Just my 2 cents but I miss my old rack :-(
