        Comments about 9030 Vertex 5 Bike:

        I like this rack a lot. Affordable and very easy to use. The levers for folding the arms and for bending the rack down are very easy to use. My bike stays very stable when attached to the rack. I leave the rack on my Subaru all the time and I carry one bike on it a few times a week. I haven't put multiple bikes on it yet after about 5 months of owning it.

        There are a few issues, but I'd say they are minor:
        The rack rocks some when I drive over bumps, but very little. The arms that hold the bike are curved, so the stabilizer pieces that attach to the seat tube are not always aligned with the seat tube. This has caused one of the stabilizer pieces to break partially, but it still can hold the bike in place fine. There is no loop anywhere on the rack that you can lock your bikes to with a cable lock. But you can somewhat secure the bikes by wrapping the cable around randomly.

        Overall, it is a good rack for the price, but it has a few quirks that I hope Thule solves in future models.

        This is a great bike carrier that holds most family bikes. Small bikes do not work well on it.
