Accessories for Thule T2 Classic 2 - 2"


The rack is great, but...


I have a 'classic' classic, and needed to haul fat bikes around, and had to buy the larger trays. The LBS said that Thule should not be charging, or charging so much for the trays because new racks come with them stock out of the box. So, yeah, I'm not feeling the love having paid out so much for a fix like that. Other than that, great rack.




Have being using T2 and extension for years


Thank you Thule for years of hassle free bike carrying. I have had the T2 classic for years and love it!!!

The T2 is a solid platform...and more.


I was recently involved in an auto collision where my car was rear-ended by an inattentive driver. On the back of my car was the T2 and on the T2 was my beloved C60. The impact of the collision was severe enough to deploy all of my car's interval safety devices. After I had settled down I went to check up on my bike; fearing the worst I was prepared to see a mangled-up bike. I was not prepared for what I saw. The T2 was bent at a severe angle, the unused carrier trays were disloged and badly damaged BUT the trays where my bike sat were nearly intact. Except for some cosmetic damage, a mangled rear wheel and a broken rear derailleur hanger (my shop is currently inspecting the bike just to be sure) the bike appears to have escaped largely unscathed. Moreover, the body repair shop person told me that with the T2 absorbing the brunt of the impact, my car avoided more severe damage. So thank you Thule for making such a great product and thank you T2 for giving up your "life" to protect me, my car AND my bike.

Just another cyclist.
