Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs more parts. The rack is nice but the hex bolt they give you for attaching it to your hitch is a complete joke. The threads strip regardless of how careful you are and it doesn't go all the way through the hitch which left me with concerns that the rack would fly off my car. Also, it doesn't fit tightly into my hitch so it does bounce around a little. They will sell you a better part, naturally but I would expect it to come with a bolt to fully mount the rack. Luckily I have access to a drill press so we bored the hole to a standard size and used a locking pin. That is honestly the only reason I didn't return it. I'm sure there are better racks than this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good Only thing I didn't like was the bolt they provide for the hitch was too small! Once I found a longer bolt it was much more secure. Other than that no problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thule Trailway 959 Bike Carrier for 4 bikes We bought this Thule bike carrier (Trailway 959) on the strength of a Thule 2-bike carrier that our daughter and son-in-law use that is strong, easy to use and reliable. This 4-bike carrier has those attributes, but the horizontal arm on which the bikes rest needs to be longer to fit 4 bikes on it without straining beyond human imagination your spatial engineering capacities. We simply could not get 4 bikes on it (2 guys, 2 girls bikes). Three can be loaded on it ok, with some creativity and physical strength. We could not find a way to configure loading on 4 adult bikes in any way that would fit. Thule or Dick's needs to add further instructions and photos to prove it can be done, and to demonstrate how. Otherwise, they should stop advertising this as a 4 bike carrier. Note, searching on the Thule website for this product results in a "no results" response to the search query. Looks like Dick's has this product specifically made for their stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bike Rack! I purchased this rack after much agonizing about different brands and types of bike racks. This rack was easy to install on the hitch and is extremely easy to use. It easily folds down for trunk access. We've used 4 bikes on the rack (2 adults and 2 kids). It has taken me a bit of practice to load the bikes on and off, but overall I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from heavy duty I purchased the bike rack for about 6 month and been using it since I got it. It is well made and strong. Well worth the money spent. Love the rubber snap on straps that hold the bikes secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Three Bike Rack Probably don't want to jam four bikes on here. Especially not adult bikes. But three bikes no problem. Great design, fittings, and easy assembly. Fits securely and works great for long trips. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but not the easiest to put multiple bikes on. Really wild angle for women's bikes unless you add an after bar that mimics the upper bar of men's bikes. I need to alternate between mounting the rack on the rear of an RV and a Honda CRV. It would be easier and arguably more secure if the bar that fits into the receiver hitch had the standard through holes instead of the threaded bolt, enabling the rack to be locked in place. And, the rubber supports for the bikes can be difficult to position to match a clear point on a frame. Those drawbacks aside, it is a sturdy rack and the hinge points work flawlessly. This particular rack would be fine for some people but not everyone.
