Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Chevrolet Sonic

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Gateway XT two bike rack, part number TH9006XT. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The cradles are padded and have these slots in here so once you put the bikes on it's not going to scratch them up and your cables actually have a place to sit and not rub up against the frame as well. The cradles are adjustable along the length of the arms to assist with fitting, and it grips the bike at three points. We have two straps up at the top here and one off to the side and that's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and possibly coming into contact with the other.


Hollywood Racks Baja 3 Bike Rack Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Hollywood Racks Baja 3, trunk mountain bike rack, part number HRB3. The Hollywood racks Baja is an inexpensive way to carry three bikes with the need of a hitch. What differentiates this trunk mount from other trunk mount bike racks is that the dual arms don't fold down for compact storage while it's on your vehicle. That's not necessarily a bad thing. It's going to be a lot sturdier with less moving parts. It uses six straps total to mount it to your sedan or SUV, and the hooks are rubber coated so it won't harm the finish of our vehicle. It also features two pads at the top, and two pads at the bottom.


Thule Passage Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2015 Volkswagen Golf

Today on our 2015 Volkswagen Golf, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Passage 2-bike rack, part number TH910XT. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The cradles themselves are adjustable along the length of the arms. This is going to make it easier for installing 2 bikes to give you a little bit of adjustability there. It grabs the bike at 3 points. We have 2 straps up at the top too, 1 off to the side here, and that's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth, possibly hitting the bike in front of it.


Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Chevrolet Sonic

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Raceway Pro Two Bike Rack. Part number GH9001PRO. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and taking a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature I'd like to show off is that it has an integrated cable lock. You would pull it out, wrap it around the bike in the front, and lock it to this point here to prevent theft and tampering of both your bikes. The cradles themselves have this nice cushioning material here, so your bike is not going to get scratched up once it's being installed.


Thule Passage Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Chevrolet Sonic

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Passage 2 Bike rack, part number TH910XT. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The cradles themselves are adjustable along the arms and they also have this nice cushion here, which is going to keep your bikes from getting scratched up, once you have them installed. It's going to grip the bike at 3 points and we're going to have 2 straps up at the top here and 1 off to the side and that's going to serve as an anti sway strap, to keep the bike from moving to far back and forth and possibly hitting the bikes in front of it. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. To assist with getting the bike off, you can actually fold anti sway cradles up and out of the way, to ease that a little bit for you. With the bike rack in this position, I'm going to go ahead and give you a quick measurement.


Thule Archway Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Chevrolet Sonic

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Sonic we're going to be test fitting the Thule Archway XT 2-Bike Rack, part number TH9009XT. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature I like to show off is the fact that it has an integrated cable lock here at the end. You'll pull it out, wrap it around your bikes, and then attach it to this point here and lock it down so you can prevent theft and tampering. The cradles are adjustable along the arms which is going to assist you with loading. It also has these nice cushioned pads here, so your bike is not going to get scratched up or damaged once it's being installed. It attaches to the bike at three points.

Today on our 2016 Subaru Outback wagon we're taking a look at the Thule Archway XT trunk-mount 2-bike rack. That part number is TH9009XT. Now we already have our bike secured down so we're first going to show you how we do that. We've got two cradles in place with three straps, two on our frame and one as our anti-sway strap in the back. We're going to pull down and lift up to release those. With those removed we can take our bike off and set it off to the side. We'll start off with a few measurements.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback

  • Pros and Cons of Trailer Hitch Mount and Trunk Mount Bike Racks for a 2003 Honda Civic Sedan
  • Starting with a trailer hitch mount, it is the most stable way to carry bikes on a vehicle. It is also easy to load and unload the bikes when compared to a roof rack set up. There are many bike racks available but on a 2003 Honda Civic sedan you are limited to carrying 2 bikes at most because all of the hitches available for the vehicle, see link, are Class I hitches that can only support 2 bikes. For this set up you would need to buy a hitch and a bike rack. On a trunk mount, you only...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with upgraded bike cradles and integrated locks to lock bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches....

  • I you can tell me the year of your Honda CR-V I can make some specific recommendations. If it is a model that has a spare tire mounted on the back then we do have some spare tire racks that are likely to fit. And for models that do not have a rear mounted spare tire I am sure that we have trunk mount racks that will fit. The Saris Bones bike rack, # SA805, is listed as a fit from Saris for the 2012 to 2014 Honda CR-V. These models did not have the spare tire mounted on the back. I have...

  • Recommended Bike Rack To Fit a 2012 Fiat 500C Convertible
  • For your 2012 Fiat 500c, which is the convertible model, I would recommend to use a hitch and a hitch bike rack. A trunk bike rack will not be able to be used on the convertible model. The hitch I would recommend would be the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24873. This hitch will bolt-on to the rear of your vehicle. I am including a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video of the hitch being installed on a Fiat 500. You will be limited to hauling 2...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes with a Toyota Prius V
  • What you have read is correct. The only hitches available for the Prius V are Class I. The bike rack and hitch manufacturers all agree that more than 2 bikes should be carried on a rack installed in a Class I receiver. Two factors contribute to this, the low 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the Class I receiver and the fact that any additional bikes after the second one would extend the load far enough rearward of the receiver opening that the extra leverage exerted could either damage...

  • Recommended Bike Rack Option for 2016 Subaru WRX STI w/ Factory Spoiler
  • According to my Thule representative, the height of the spoiler on your vehicle would prevent you from installing a trunk mounted bike rack, but there are options that would allow you to carry two bikes. Your best bet would be to install a hitch like the Curt Class I, part # C11408 and use it as an attachment point for a hitch mounted bike rack. My favorite bike rack right now is the Kuat Beta, part # B202-114. The rack is super strong, but its aluminum construction means its only about...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for 2010 Subaru Outback
  • The two best bike carrying options for your Outback would be a trunk mounted rack or a hitch mounted rack. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. A hitch mounted rack would be initially more expensive, but having the receiver hitch would offer more flexibility. If the need should arise, you could tow a small trailer or use a hitch mounted cargo carrier. For bike carrying purposes, the biggest advantage offered by the hitch mounted rack would be the fact that the rack would not...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 2013 Toyota Highlander
  • After doing some research on your vehicle, I found that there are no trunk mounted bike rack options available for your 2013 Toyota Highlander. Bike rack manufacturers have determined that it would be unsafe to use a trunk mounted bike rack on your rear hatch because the vehicle is unable to support the weight at the point where the carrier must be placed. It is likely due to the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch that you have referenced. These spoilers were not designed to support...

  • How to Carry a Womens Bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack
  • All you would need is an adapter bar to carry a women's bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack part # SA805BL. An adapter bar like the part # 64005 would attach to the seat post of your bike and at the steering stem to provide a horizontal attachment point for the bike rack. Check out the review video I attached for this product as well.

  • Comparing the Yakima KingJoe and Saris Bones Bike Racks for a 2013 Honda Fit

  • Which 2 Bike Trunk Mounted Bike Racks Will fit a 2010 Toyota Prius with no Sun Roof
  • Yakima does not have any trunk mounted bike rack solutions for your 2010 Prius, but Thule does. You can use the Gateway, # TH9006XT, the Archway, # TH9009XT, or the Passage, # TH910XT. But I recommend the Raceway, # TH9001PRO. The Raceway features retractable cables that make installation and removal of the rack quick and easiest. It is by far the easiest to mount trunk mount bike rack I have used. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback
  • There are many different styles of bike racks that you can use on your 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback, but due to the spoiler that comes on the rear hatch of your vehicle, I would recommend using a roof or hitch mounted bike rack over a trunk mounted bike rack. The rear spoiler on your vehicle was not designed to support any type of weight and it will be forced to support the weight of a bike rack and bikes when you use a trunk mounted bike rack. Instead, I would recommend looking into...
