Rated 4.4 out of 5áby 58 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5áby Not perfect, but pretty good. We purchased this rack to fill a short-term need, carrying 4 bikes to an event. I agree with the reviewer who said "Not 4 adult bikes" - one has to get creative to fit 4 bikes on, including adjusting the spacing of the bike brackets. With non-traditional frames this becomes a real challenge, but the system is flexible enough to do a lot of accommodation. Regarding the reviewer who had the unfortunate experience of the rack falling off the car - I'm sorry to say but this was likely user error. With the bolt properly tightened with the provided washer and lock washer the rack is absolutely secure; on a long trip or travelling rough roads the bolt should be checked and re-tightened as necessary every time you stop. (If the rack tongue moves at all in the hitch receiver, the bolt is not tight enough. I do appreciate the reviewer's warning, which prompted me to purchase the optional locking bolt (Thule STL2 Snug-Tite Receiver Lock STL2) which adds theft protection and makes it impossible for the bolt to vibrate completely out. I am happy with the rack; overall quality is good and it's solidly built. And knowing that in most cases I will carry only 1 or 2 bikes, I'm quite happy with it. (If I was certain we weren't carrying 4 bikes again I'd opt for the 2-bike version.) For anyone who will regularly and frequently carry 4 bikes, I suggest you keep looking and if possible try other racks before buying. If 4-bike capacity falls into the "would be nice" category rather than "must have" I recommend the Thule Trailway as a good value. May 27, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5áby Does NOT fit 4 adult bikes We purchased this bike carrier because we have been happy with Thule products in the past and were looking forward to taking our bikes out to Colorado this summer. We are SO disappointed.... We have tried numerous times putting our families 4 adult bikes onto this carrier and each and every time it turns a nice day into a completely frustrating one. We have tried alternating the bikes so the handle bars don't hit, we have tried alternating the order of how the bikes go on the carrier, we have purchased two additional support bars to try and make some of the bikes sit higher.....NOTHING WORKS!!! We then reached out to Thule directly and they told us to just do all of the above that we had already tried. Now, I will say 3 bikes go on great, its the 4th one we can't get. If the carrier were just 2 inches longer, it would be perfect. The bikes don't sway and the carrier is solid and easy to use - BUT if I can't get our bikes on easy EVERY time, then it's just not worth it. I am just thankful that we have tried this enough times before our trip cross country and know that we need to get a different carrier. May 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Strong and fast to assemble We have only used it once so far, but it assembled very quickly. Bikes mount easily and securely. Planning a much longer haul but expect it to handle the trip very well. Using it on the hitch of a Chevy Sierra truck. September 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Quality You Would Expect from Thule Honestly I have only used it once so far, and only with two bikes, but so far it's just what I expected. Very easy to install, solid construction, the bikes went on with ease. I was not too sure about the single half bolt to secure it to the car hitch, but after reading other reviews, no one had any issues. I do plan on getting the bolt with a lock on it for better security which does go through the entire width of the base. Otherwise no complaints so far. Mine was missing the sway strap when it arrived, but one call to customer service and they sent me one in two days. Took it out on the road and hit highway speeds of 65+, no problem. I like how the cradles are adjustable on the arms to accommodate bikes of different size. Nothing came close to the back of my vehicle, and the bikes were separated enough not to hit each other. The anti-sway piece's along with the sway strap kept the bikes from moving. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great purchase Very stylish and good quality bike rack. There is no need for spending money on something more expensive if you are using it for occasional travel. We use it for 4 mountain bikes, two adult and 2 youth - all with wide frame and didn't have any problems with fitting them on. September 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Bike Rack Held 4 bikes securely in hitch on my Honda CRV on freeway driving at high speeds with no problem July 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great Bike Rack for Family This bike rack is a very sturdy rack. The straps are easy to use and keep the bikes very secure. It is nice that the rack can be easily folded so that when it is not in use it doesn't get in the way on your vehicle. We have an SUV and it is easy to fold the rack to access the back hatch. We are able to put four bikes from 16" to 28" tires for our whole family and everything fits nicely. I would give it five stars except attaching the rack to the hitch is a little difficult as it requires a bolt. Other than that is has been a really great buy. July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Rugged and reliable This product is worth it's weight in gold. Easy to use and fold down for access to hatch. Hard to fit kids bikes on it but thats ok cuz they grow up fast. No complaints. July 9, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5áby Great product if all bike frames are Standard I was unable to get 4 bikes onto the rack because I have 1 adult bike, 2 youth bikes and 1 child's bike. This is an AMAZING product, but for standard bike frames only. July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Buy This Convenient, well priced compared to others of the same quality, simple to use, installs in 10 minutes from box, no worry construction, folds for truck bed access, great investment. July 4, 2015
