How much does this rack weigh?

Unanswered Question

Can this work with 5" fat tires in any way or am I forced to spend another $150 for the T2?

Great rack for the money. It is a bit of a pain that this doesn't have the tilt feature (but that's what an extra $150 gets you with the Transport rack). We've hauled our bikes on over 3000 mile trips with this, on off-road trails and the interstate, and it keeps everything locked down tight. Love that this one comes with a lock too.

Great Affordable Rack

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

IM really liking this rack, about $150 less than top of the line, but does just about the same thing.. Comes with locks, easy to raise and lower for entry into rear of car. Stable on the road. great quality. Easy to load bike.

Most of the bikes in my herd have sloping top tubes, will this carrier work for them ?

Responded on

Works on my Cannondale Scalpel

What is the advantage of the Transport T2 over the Doubletrack that justifies the $150 price difference? Is it mostly the ability to add the Transport T2 Bike Add-on?

Responded on

It is the ability to add on, a little easier to load and unload, plus a tilt feature that allows you access to the trunk of your car.

    does it work on 2013 mini cooper hardtop?

    Responded on

    I believe that that should fit with your car based of of the information that I have. However, to be sure please use the fit guide we have just above the tech specs, it will just get the specific info about your car and decide if this hitch will work with your vehicle.

    If I read your question right this is a hitch rack and not a roof rack. So if you have a 1.25" or 2" hitch receiver then it will work.

    Responded on

    It fits. I have an R56 and have fitted this same bike rack. Be sure you have a 1.25 inch hitch attachment and the bar has just enough clearance from the rear bumper.

    How heavy can the bikes be. Will it handle a 80 lb bike?

    This rack has a 2 bike capacity with a load limit of 70 lbs. Also, make sure you always put your heavier bike closer the the hitch.


    Great rack for the $$$$

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    If you need a quality rack and don't want to sink 5 Ben's in it then this rack is great. No titlt option but the locking arms do fold down when not in use to access the tailgate of your SUV. I love the lock options on the securing arms for each bike. Not impenetrable but a nice deterrent. The hitch lock is also great for a would be thief who would just take the whole darn rack and bikes! So if your value conscience and want name brand look to this Thule model for sure.

    Is anyone having a problem with damage to the top tube of the bike where the arm puts pressure down on the bike to hold it in place? Thanks

    Responded on

    Hi. I have the Thule two bike carrier. The stem with the two hooks seemed really loose so I tightened them a bit. Now I can't seem to get the stem to lay flat so I can fold it up against trhe vehicle. Do the screws have to be really loose?

    Responded on

    Not at all Richard. Great little rack for the money. When you say damage do you mean bending of frame top tube or what????

    Does this rack have a tilt, or other option...

    Does this rack have a tilt, or other option to allow for opening of the tailgate?

    Responded on

    You won't be able to tilt it out of the way to open the hatch with bikes still on the rack. It will have to be empty to pen the hatch.

    Responded on

    No. The center arm folds down and that is all for access to tailgate opening.

    Looking for a 2 bike rack. Just had a hitch put on a 2013 Chevy Equinox. Please advise which is the most reliable, safe, secure that you would recommend for two traveling women. I have viewed the helium aero rack & the vortex 2 rack, as well as the STL2.

    I have a new womans specialized bicycle, how does the upper hook fasten to the bike?

    Responded on

    After you strap in both wheels, the hook lowers down onto the bike's top tube to hold it snugly in place.

    Will this rack work with a 1.25 hitch?...

    Will this rack work with a 1.25 hitch? I've heard you should not use 2 inch adapters with a 1.25 hitch.

    Is this rack for a 2" hitch?

    Responded on

    It's compatible with both 1.25" and 2" hitches.


    Great rack

      Straight forward installation. Includes all hardware so you don't have to go out and buy tools to install.

      Fits both bikes securely without much effort. I drive on open country roads at 70-80 mph. No problems

      Only complaint is their locking system. Does take some getting use too and at times it seams as if it will not lock but keep wiggling the key and it'll lock.

      Much more cost effective than a roof rack mount system if you were to start from no accessories on the car.

      weight of carrier?

      Shipping weight (listed on amazon) is 46 lbs.. seems like a lot though...


      Easy to use; stable enough

        One of our friends complains about some of the lateral movement of this rack. It does jiggle a bit, but the movement doesn't seem to put undo pressure on the frame or wheels. I'm a 125 lb woman, and while I didn't mount the rack on our Honda Fit, once my husband set the rack up, it's been very easy for me to use. (We debated a roof rack, and now I'm glad we didn't go that direction because it would have been difficult for me to use.)

        Overall, the rack seems well made and there's plenty of clearance off the ground to make it up and down our steep driveway. I'll write another review if I find something to complain about, but for now I love this rack, and at 20% off on, I love the price we paid!
