Thule's Roadway 2-Bike Hitch Rack uses Thule's Stay-Put cradles to safely and securely carry your bikes locking them in position so they can't bang into each other. And, the whole rack swings down for easy access to the rear of your vehicle, while the arms fold down, too, for easy storage and portability.
Features and Information
Fits 2- and 1 1/4-inch hitches.
Note that manufacturers use the words "receiver" and "hitch" to refer to the same thing: the part on the rear of your vehicle that the rack plugs into.
I installed this on my 2005 Jeep Liberty. I did have to removed the spare tire assembly from the Jeep to make this work. Not a huge deal as the spare fits in the cargo area anyways.
Easy to install, comes with tools. Well built. Can hold either just 1 or 2 bikes. If only using this for one bike, it comes with a strap the secure the front wheel from bouncing around side to side like crazy from the wind. While assembling the item I was afraid it would be a little sloppy and would allow my bikes to move, but it actually doesnt at all. This also comes with a bottle opener on the tool which I found to be helpful.
I also recommend using at least an 8 foot bike lock to secure both bikes to the rack.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
