Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this product


  • Bike Carrying Options for Mini Cooper Countryman
  • It looks like the only available option for carrying bikes with your Mini Countryman would be a roof mount system. A roof rack could be constructed using the following parts: Thule Load Bars, part # THLB50 Thule Podium Foot Pack, part # TH460 Thule Vehicle-Specific Fit Kit, part # THKIT4020 Optional Lock Cores, part # TH544 The rack would attach to fixed mounting points on the roof of your vehicle. Once the crossbars are in place, you can attach two bike racks. The Swagman Upright Roof

  • Recommendations for Carrying Bikes with a Mini Cooper Countryman
  • The Thule Passage, # TH9001, is not recommended for use on your 2011 Mini Cooper Countryman because the vehicle is unable to support the weight of the bike rack. At this time we do not have an option for carrying bikes at the rear of the 2011 Mini Cooper Countryman. If your Countryman has factory installed crossbars, you can use the Thule Sidearm bike rack, # TH594XT, to carry bikes on the roof of your vehicle. If your vehicle has factory flush side rails and no crossbars, you will need

  • Tips on Installing the Top Hooks on a Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack and 2010 Mini Cooper
  • When I first got my Raceway bike rack, I had the same problem. There are a couple of things that you can try to get the top hooks in place. First, what works for me is to put the hook above the opening it needs to go into and then pushing it into place. The coating protects the vehicle from any damage. Another thing you can do is pull out some slack from the retractable cable and try to get the hook in at the corner or edge and then slide it over into position. This works for me when I use th

  • Will the Thule Raceway 2 Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2011 Mini Cooper S Hard Top
  • The Thule Raceway, # TH9001, will fit the 2011 Mini Cooper S provided that there is a gap between the spoiler at the top of the vehicle and the body of the vehicle so the cables and latches can fit through. If any part of the rack makes contact with the spoiler you cannot use the rack. I have included some informational links on the Raceway for you to view. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the bike adapter bar # TH982XT for greater groun

  • Will the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2005 Mini Cooper
  • The Thule Raceway trunk mount bike rack # TH9001 is listed as a fit for all models of the 2005 Mini Cooper with the exception of the convertibles. The R50, Mini One, or first generation, however it is referred to, can be fitted with either the 2 bike TH9001 or the 3 bike # TH9002. I own one of these racks and my family and I love it. It is by far the easiest bike rack I have ever used. The retractable cables are my favorite feature because they make installation quick and easy with no loose s

  • Does the Thule Helium Aero Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2009 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works
  • First, you will need to install a trailer hitch on your 2009 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works model. I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said that the JCW model is not excluded so you can use # 11130. You will need to cut a hole in the rear bumper fascia in order to install trailer hitch # 11130. I have included a link to the installation details and a video for you to view. I have seen several different styles of the John Cooper Works models of the 2009 and it looks like if yours is one that

Questions from Mini Cooper owners about this product


  • Product Comparison Thule T2 vs. Kuat Sherpa for a 2010 MINI Cooper
  • For your 2010 Mini Cooper, I would recommend the lighter Kuat Sherpa, item # S101, bike rack over the Thule T2, item # TH917XTR, bike rack for several reasons. First, the lighter weight of the Sherpa rack will allow you to safely carry heavier bikes on the rack. You will need to be sure that the total weight of the bikes, everything on them and the bike rack are within the tongue weight capacity of your Mini Cooper and hitch. Normally Class I hitches have a 200 pound tongue weight capacity. T

  • The Yakima QuickBack 2, # Y02621, is listed as a fit for the 2012 Mini Cooper. No need to worry about the top straps because in order to use this rack on your Mini you will use the included glass hatch accessory. Think of it as a cylinder instead of a hook and that cylinder goes on the inside of the vehicle at the same point the hook would attach. The cylinder disperses the weight across a larger area so it will not damage the vehicle. I have linked a video and the instructions for this rack for

  • Bike Carrier Recommendations for a 2011 Mini Cooper Convertible
  • I did some checking and there are trunk mounted bike racks available that will work on your 2011 Mini Cooper Convertible 4 passenger. I attached a link to a page that has all of these racks listed. I think the rack that is the most similar to the Thule Passage 2 Bike Rack part # TH910XT that you referenced would be the Hollywood Racks Expedition part # HRF6-2. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes wit

  • Bike Carrier Recommendations for a 2011 Mini Cooper Roadster Convertible
  • We do not show any fit for a trunk-mount bike carrier for your Mini convertible (this is due to the unique design of your vehicle). My contacts at three bike rack manufacturers (Hollywood Racks, Thule and Yakima) all confirmed that there is no trunk-mount bike carrier suitable for your 2011 Mini Cooper convertible. Also, since your vehicle has a dual exhaust centered at the back bumper, there is also no hitch receiver that can be fitted to it. This prevents use of a hitch-mount bike carrier.

  • Bike Carrying Options for 2010 Mini Cooper S Convertible
  • I have spoken with my representative from Thule, Yakima and Hollywood Racks, and have found that none of them offer a trunk mounted rack that would be compatible with your 2010 Mini Cooper S Convertible, as the trunk lid is not large enough to provide a secure mounting surface for the bike rack. Since the convertible top makes a roof rack out of the question, a hitch mounted solution would be your only option. The Curt Class I hitch, part # C11130 is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. I have

  • We do have a way for you to carry bikes with your 2008 Mini Cooper Convertible, however, at this time there are no trunk mounted bike racks that will fit the convertible model of the Mini Cooper. Instead, I would recommend installing the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch, # C11126, and using a hitch mounted bike rack like the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack, # TH9028. The safest way to carry bikes is with a hitch mounted bike rack. Curt requires that all non-trailer loads such as bike racks or cargo carri

  • Recommended Bike Carrying Options for 2012 Mini Cooper Hardtop

Of the available choices, I really like the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001 for a 2 bike capacity or # TH9002 for a 3 bike capacity. Rather than the 6 strap and buckle fastening arrangement used by other racks, the Raceway uses 4 ratcheting cables that make installing and removing the rack ridiculously simple.

Our best selling rack for your vehicle is the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001. The Raceway can accommodate two bikes weighing no more than a combined 70 lbs.

Both styles offer a couple of features that I would recommend over some of the other manufacturer bike rack systems. The attachment straps and anti-sway cradles that Thule use

This carrier has anti-sway cradles with soft rubber straps that secure the bikes to the rack and prevent bike to bike contact. It also has 6 adjustable straps with hooks that anchor the rack to your trunk. I have attached a link to an installation video. If your vehicle is a 2 passenger Roadster, we do not offer any trunk-

If you need a 2 bike rack, you can use the QuickBack 2, part # Y02621 or the KingJoe 2, part # Y02619.
