Not what I had hoped


from Vancouver, BC

Comments about Thule Apex 9026:

This is my first hitch rack. I normally have two adult, and two kids bikes on the rack. I love that it tilts down, and that it holds the bikes secure. I do not love the amount of movement in the rack itself. When tight at the hitch, there is so much play within the rack. Side to side and front to back. This causes extreme bouncing when driving down the road with no way to tighten (even with two bikes on the rack). I've been happy with other Thule products (aero bars and roof box), but not at all with this rack.

    Comments about Thule Apex 9026:

    We're a family of five and the Apex 5 is a great way for us all to transport our bikes. Two of our bikes are for smaller kids, so they're a tighter fit, but even they get on. The rack also goes on and comes off very easily, and both the hitch lock and bike lock work perfectly. (Note about the other review: there's no need to thread the bike lock through the frame, because there's no way to remove a bike when the lock is simply pulled over the top and locked.) Overall, this is a terrific product.
