Description

  • Hitch Switch lever folds and stores platform when it is not in use, or tilts down so you can access the rear of the vehicle
  • Snug-Tite receiver lock sits tightly in your trailer hitch and locks the hitch to the vehicle
  • Accommodates bicycles with disc brakes and thru-axles
  • 2 One-Key locks are included for maximum security while you are under way and at rest stops
  • Fits bikes with 20 to 29in wheel diameters and bicycles with up to 3in-wide tires

TANK Rack!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

The Thule T2 bike rack is a beast! Now I have peace if mind that my expensive bikes are secure while driving. This rack is expensive but very well built (you pay for what you get!). Fortunately Backcountry.com has these racks on sale right now! I love the integrated bike locks so you can lock up and not have to worry when you run in to grab lunch after a long day of riding the trails. I will note...read the directions carefully or you may find yourself switching the front wheel cups and the direction that the individual racks are facing a few times like I did. My fault for not reading thoroughly and going too quickly.

TANK Rack!

can you fit a bike with a 48 inch wheelbase on this? (yeti SB5c)

Hey Chemosabe,

You can fit your Yeti SB5c on the Thule Transport T2, no problem. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions about this bike rack as I have owned it for years.

Makes driving your bike easy

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Upgraded from a roof rack and can't believe it I waited so long. The thule is duriable, has great customer service (along with backcountry) and is easy to use. I used to be scared I'd hit the garage. And it sounds silly, but this rack makes putting it on so easy . No tires to take on/off and the bike is secure. The only thing is I wish they had given me two locks for the bikes instead of one. Great rack.

Never Had a Complaint

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've hauled bikes for many many miles with this rack. Hitch rack is the way to go for sure, and the T2 is the top choice in that world. The only issue I have ever had is when somebody stole one of the front wheel buckets and the ratchet straps off the rack while it was parked in a bike park lot. Thule was quick to ship me replacements. Easy to setup, take on and off, and use, this thing is bomber. When your bikes are worth more than the vehicle hauling them, this is the rack you want.

weakest link

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

These bushings like to explode and your rack will wobble back n forth. You can find them at some Lowes/home depot. Replacing these will make your rack like new.



I hammer this rack on dirt roads and like how these pieces can be replaced instead of having to get a brand new rack.

do you sell replacement rear wheel straps for this rack?

Corey, when my straps and front tire wheel well got stolen I went to Thule directly for replacements. They took care of me ASAP. I'd recommend starting with Thule customer service.

Can you fit a fat tire bike on the rack?

Hey schemmel7, with this add on the Thule T2 can handle those fatties.

great product

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

very easy to secure bike and secures great. Lock could be a little easier to use but serves its purpose pretty well.

I have 2 vehicles that I want to use this hitch on, one has the 1.25 inch hitch and the other is a 2 inch hitch..... Does Thule sell an adapter so that the 1.25 can fit in the 2 inch hitch?

We have the same issue, I bought an adapter at a local hitch place. I do not believe Thule makes one but I could be wrong. Been using a Curt brand adapter for 4 years with no issue.

THE rack.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Why would you get anything else?? I have a top end carbon bike. It puts no stress on the frame (which was important to me). It is SOLID construction. Makes me want to visit Sweden! haha. Highly recommend for anyone wanting bike protection and quick loading of your bike.

Best platform-style bike rack I've owned

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

My hitch size is 1.25" so I got the 1.25" version. It's a pretty good and solid platform type bike rack. The Hitch Lock Pin Bolt may come loose so make sure to put Locktite Blue (Don't use Locktite Red) on the Hitch Lock Pin Bolt and torque it down to about 50 foot-lbs so it doesn't come loose. Mine did when the dealer installed it with grease on the treads and they didn't even use a torque wrench. Adjust the platforms so the bicycle's center of gravity is centered on the platform support or if you prefer, roughly centering the bicycle with your vehicle's width. When securing your bicycle to the platform, make sure the SecureHook is placed near the fork and ratchet it tight. I go for at least 3-clicks for my MTB tires. Same thing with the rear wheel straps, adjust them so they're tight when you close the lever. Don't forget to lock your bike too. You don't want it getting stolen when you leave it unattended.

Alaska Highway Certified

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I do not like to hang my heavy mountain bikes by the frame, especially on extended trips. So when driving to Alaska from Idaho and back the T2 was my bike hauler on my Toyota Tundra truck. Like other reviewers, I agree that the small cable locks that come with this rack do not inspire confidence and I supplemented my setup with a heavy duty OnGuard cable lock for the bikes and a hitch lock for the truck. I also added an 8 inch hitch extender to the rack in order to be able to open my tailgate without removing the bikes. The extender added some extra wiggle to the rack on rough roads but there was enough room to cook and access the truck bed without touching the bikes. Bringing the bikes to AK was a great decision and allowed us to ride throughout Canada and Alaska (Whistler Bike Park included!). I never had an issue with the T2 or its parts and the bikes survived the trip thanks to this rack. The Toyota truck is gone but the rack has been transplanted to a Subaru Outback three years after purchase and going strong.

Hauls my bikes

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This is actually the third rack like this I have owned and they have worked well. The T2 is a bit utilitarian but it does what you buy it for and hauls bikes. I have driven thousands of miles with bikes on this rack on paved and dirt roads and it has held onto my bikes every time. The cable lock is all but worthless and I usually use a long cable and pad lock when I need to lock bikes on the rack. The rear wheel strap is a bit tricky to use and I know several people that have lost or had the straps stolen but so far I still have both of mine and once you know how to use them they do the job. Also the T2 worked with my truck and let me lower the tail gate without interfering unlike the Yakima hitch rack I tried out.

Poor quality accessory parts

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Very disappointed with this product, especially after reading so many positive reviews. The platform is quite sturdy, but the pieces/mechanisms to attach the bike are very cheap/flimsy. On the very first use, one of the cam levers designed to secure the rear bike wheel broke off. They are built with very flimsy, aluminum rivets. I had to use bungie cords to hold the wheels in place. Also on the first use, one of the lock cables pulled completely out of its housing. It is hard to see how this cable is attached inside the support arm, but either another cheap part broke, or it was not attached to begin with. Either way, I expected better craftsmanship for the price.

I have to concur here. After three years of ownership accumulating in about 10 months of total use I have all sorts of parts broken, missing, and not functioning correctly. I still love how easy this rack is to use and hanging my bike by the frame is not a respectable option, but for the money the durability isn't so good.

I agree with above. One of the cheap aluminum rivets broke on my first trip. I ended up securing the rear wheel on my $400 rack with a bungee cord. Really?!

does this rack work with 2014 Jeep Grand...

does this rack work with 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited?

Best Answer

As long as you have a receiver on the Jeep, yes, it will.

The is the best rack I've owned. I've gone 'cheap' with other racks but finally decided to throw down the cash for this one. I'm happy I did.

Love it!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

We love this bike rack. It's super quick and easy to get the bikes on and the lock keeps them all secure.

Thule T2 Review, 1998 Volvo V70, Bronson

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Thule T2 Review, 1998 Volvo V70, Bronson This rack is awesome. Sturdy and easy to use. I bought the 1.25 inch version and it doesn't move around any more than the 2 inch version's my friends have. Advantages over a roof rack: 1. Minor hit to MPG's and 2. Much easier to set your bike down on the rack.
