Relatively inexpensive but limited
- I've used it several times
- True to size
Trying to file a solution to what I thought would be a simple question -- how do I safely and securely travel with my bikes in the bed of my pickup. Out of the dust and danger. Turning out to be a question without an easy answer. This rack isn't a bad answer but is incomplete. It sets up super-easy (I have a full sized Ram) and is secure, as in it doesn't move, once it is tightened. But it offers zero protection from theft. Yes there is a lock but the lock is only on the side-to-side pressure, nothing locks it from just simply being yanked upward. It's a quality made part, but the design offers a limited solution. Also, you need an adapter for any thru-axles. The Thule model is about $70, I bought one for about $15 from that evil empire 'A' which does the same job. But note when you install one of these adapters the whole thing can rotate about the Thule mount (just the way it is designed.) I have resorted to lashing the bike in after it is in the rack so it won't move. Lame... Somebody please come out with a secure, multi-bike solution for a truck bed...please!!!

Thule made rack heavier than I expected. Easy to set up and it works great.
