Comments about 9042 Helium Aero 2 Bike:

Switched to this from a wheel-off roof rack. Rack is solid and very light. Works well with my Class I hitch (was a significant concern). Drove 600mi with my CX bike on it without any issues.

Very happy with the rack.

Comments about 9042 Helium Aero 2 Bike:

Switched cars,and now use a 1.25" Hidden Hitch.NO issue,it slid in easier minus the 2" adapter used with the Drawtite,weird.Assembly was a non issue,just the anti-sway cradle was a little confusing to install.This is my second Thule bike carrier,and I am happy with it,especially the weight,mast design.
