Let's get right down to it - This rack is for the likes of me, who only will EVER need space to hold one bike on a receiver rack. The rest of the world can tune out now. I love my new Thule T1. My son recommended a Thule brand, based on his experience with this manufacturer. I saw this Thule T1 on display at a local bike shop and chose it for carrying my clunky upright steel frame hybrid bike on the back of my motorhome. We have been inseparable since. It is secure (I have it locked to the motorhome and to the bike arm AND cable lock. So that is three lock points. It is easy to take on and off, which gets me riding for short and long trips more often. Now having more than 5,000 miles on the motorhome with the Thule T1, the rack has kept my bike secure through freezing weather, sleet, rain, 40 mile per hour crosswinds, blistering heat and bumpy back roads. When I have the bike stored in the garage, I fold up the carrier with ease and seldom take it off the motorhome. I recommend considering this rack if you only need to carry one bike.
