How does this fit on this type of vehicle? Do the straps go underneath the bumper or on the bottom of trunk door?
asked by: Mio
On the 2006 Infiniti FX-35, the Thule Gateway 2, # TH9006XT, will fit. The lower clips will fit in the bottom edge of the trunk/hatch. The top clips will fit in the gap at the front edge of the top of the trunk/hatch. The lower arm of the rack will rest in the area between the license plate well and the upper tier of the bumper. I have included a link to a video review of this series of bike racks for you to view.
To carry womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # TH982XT is recommended. The adapter spans the distance between the seat post and the handle bar gooseneck, and provides a level attachment point to the bike rack so the bike has greater ground clearance and is not carried at an angle.
