    Comments about Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike 9042:

    I have a Mazda CX-5 with a hitch receiver. I purchased another, cheaper bike rack that I hated. Since I got the Helium Aero 2 Bike 9042, I find that I enjoy riding my bike more. My bike is on the rack in seconds as opposed to minutes. The rack rides very smooth, no wobbles.
    If I have to make a pit stop before or after my ride, I know my bike is safe with the built in lock.

    Comments about Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike 9042:

    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.
