- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
I am not sure what is going on with Thule, as they used to be THE standard for bicycle racks. The plastic bits on the Helium platform are the Achilles heal of this rack. They make up the critical connections with the aluminum trays and they fail over time due to the required force (which is not much) at the ratchet straps to tighten the bike to the rack. I have purchased Thule products since 1988, sad to see that the engineering and quality are not what they used to be.

what is the packaging dimension (lxwxh)? how much weight?

I can't seem to find the Max Wheelbase listed in the Tech Specs of this rack or really any others. That is a critical dimension since I have an XL Enduro with 49" wheelbase. I know not many racks can handle that wheelbase and it is hard to compare when that spec is not provided.
