Comments about Thule Prologue 516:

Mostly works great. Easy to adjust clamping force, Simple, effective straps, easy lock/unlock. U-bolts broke early on but easy enough to substitute Allen head screws, plates and self locking nuts. Have many miles over all kinds of roads with a pair of mountain bikes (30 lbs and 38 lbs). Never had a failure other than the u-bolts. Does get a bit wobbly on the worst roads, but haven't lost a bike yet. Upgrading to a 15mm front axle? Get a different rack because this one won't do it. Otherwise recommended as long as you throw away the u-bolts to start with.

Comments about Thule Prologue 516:

Single bolt to attach head to cross bars makes the rack flimsy when attaching heavy (25lb+) bike. U bolt snapped while driving with cross winds.

Only recommend for light road bikes.
