Great bike rack
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- True to size
I could not understand the IKEA-like instructions until I went online and watched a couple installation/assembly videos. (Not being familiar with bike racks, it appeared there were two missing pieces on the rack, but there weren’t!) Once I watched the videos , the pictograms made perfect sense! Received the rack in two sections. It was already set up for a 2” hitch so I could skip the first steps of assembly. Easy to attach the two pieces. After that, it was ready to go. It’s lightweight. It tightened up well into the hitch with the adjustment knob. Took me a minute to.get the feel for the key lock system.

Found the included bike hold down straps to be a PIA. Replaced them with 15 inch Voile straps. Perfect solution. Key lock, to lock rack to trailer hitch works fine. Included cable lock system is a bit finicky; don't use it. You also need to use a tie down, to vertical bar on rack to hold bike from swinging fore and aft. Use a rubber shock cord, with hooks at each end; this holds bike against rack.

Will this fit a 2021 Hyundai Kona (non-electric)? Thanks!

I have just purchased a Thule Aluminum 2 bike hitch with lock. The parts list shows a lock cylinder and two keys plus a lock cylinder change key. I only have the cylinder and one square top key. The parts bag was sealed. Please advise. thanks.
