Comments about Thule T2 Pro XT:

I just purchased this rack. I did have the top of the line Thule swing away. Just purchased a carbon mountain bike and didnt want it hanging from the swing away. This rack was very simple to assemble. All locks were keyed alike. Ratching rear wheel strap is a plus. Front wheel holder works flawless. Tilt down function allows opening rear cargo door on my 2016 Ford Escape. Be forewarned that if you have a back up camera / alarm it will constantly go off while backing due to the rack being only a few inches away inline with the camera. I guess the cable and locks would be what i would call a distraction for an honest thief. In these times, thiefs have all the tools to cut the cables or the cable ends. Also looking at the thousands of dollars in mountain bikes sitting on the rack is an invitation for any thief. There are only four screws holding each cross bar on. You just need a ratchet and Allen to remove the four screws and you have removed the bike and the cross rail together. Too easy for a thief. I might change out two screws on each rail with some torx head screws, that way someone would need several tools to remove it. Probably the best idea would be to get a super HD cable or high tensil grade chain and lock the bikes and wheels to the hitch where a safety chain would go. Overall this rack works very well and the ease of lifting it onto the receiver is a plus. The tightening knob really snugs up the rack and the rack is rattle free.
Other than thieft issues, i would have give the rack 5 stars.

Best Rack I've Used

By 

from So Cal

Comments about Thule T2 Pro XT:

This rack is well designed, fits bike(s) easily is clean looking and quick to use. Despite what the other reviewer said the bike rails / trays can easily be offset to allow bikes to "nest", eliminating the need to have to lower or remove seat. They actually are staggered by default if you follow the set up instructions properly. On that note it took me about 15 minutes to assemble the rack out of the box. My only minor recommendation to Thule is that the wheel trays have a metal nut or threaded inset piece so that when you attach the trays onto the rack the screws join to metal, not just the nylon (although this has not been a problem, I just think this would "perfect" the product). I also like the simplicity and ease of the handle / release when raising and lower the rack. I also ordered a lock core pack so that I can have this rack have the same keys as my roof rack and mounts, all work perfect. I love not having to lift the bike onto the roof of the car. All is all this is the best bike rack I've had in my 20 years of cycling.

    Comments about Thule T2 Pro XT:

    despite what reviewer "eyebex" has said, this is the best reviewed bike rack on the market, and deserves a much higher rating. the fact that the mechanism to keep the tire in place is a little sticky can be overlooked. this thing is bomb proof and so carefully designed to provide a pleasant experience. well worth the money!
