Excellent bike rack. Poor install manual.


I recently bought the T2 Classic pre-assembled from my local bike shop. My friends have the same rack on their trucks. I've used them many times. I love the fitment of the bikes. My wheelbase is 47" with 26" tires. After installing the rack on my truck, I found that my bike wouldn't fit. The back tire was sticking way off the back of the rack and the locking arm was nearly vertical. I checked the manual and it said that it will fit up to 48" bikes. I again checked the manual for fitment and noticed that the front wheel support cup was reversed for both bikes. So I promptly removed them and reversed them. My bike fits great now BUT one of the holes was stripped out during initial installation of the front tire cup by the dealer. Bolting into plastic isn't really the strongest support system. So now I need to either get a replacement piece or try to repair the one I've got. A simple solution would be to manufacture a third mounting hole which is not equal spacing from the other two holes. Then this problem would never happen. The wheel cup could never be reversed. But since this product has been manufactured for years, it's not really an option to change it. If the front wheel cup had a better mounting system, I would give this rack 5 stars. Easily adjustable rack. Such a nice addition to my truck.

Excellent Carrier For All Bikes Especially Fat Tire Bikes!


Made a road trip to St. Simons Island, Georgia and my SE F@E was very secure in the wheel cradles driving on smooth and rough pavement. Even crossing RR tracks and hitting bumps, the bike wasn't swaying. The rack is constructed very well, and I plan to use it more often. Best feature is the tilt-away lever so the hatch on my Honda CRV can be accessed when the rack is fully loaded.

Amazing Piece of Equipment


This is my SECOND trailer hitch bike rack. The first was another brand at 1/4 of the price. When you pay for a cheap product, that is just what you get. Returned it before I ever used it. The Thule name is highly trusted for good reason. This bike rack is EASIER to mount on my trailer hitch than it is to change a light bulb. Durable, light weight while being very sturdy, bikes do not wobble around, comes with trailer hitch lock core, and lock down arms are lock core ready. I like the platform style much better than the post and arm style for easy loading, stability, and all around convenience.
