Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Ford Explorer

Today on our 2016 Ford Explorer, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Raceway Pro Two Bike Rack, part number TH9001PRO. 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 would like to show is the integrated cable lock here. You pull it out, wrap it around the bike in the front, attach it to this point here and lock it for additional security to prevent theft and tampering. It grabs your bike by three points. You have two straps up at the top here and one out to the side.


Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Ford Explorer

Today, on our 2016 Ford Explorer, we're going to be test fitting a Thule Gateway XT2 bike rack, part # TH9006XT. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. How the bike is actually attached to the rack, we're going to have three points of contact with the bike's frame. We're going to have two straps, up at the top here and one off to the side. That's going to serve as an anti squeeze trap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and possibly damaging the bikes in front of it. Let's go and take that off and set that aside. With the bike in this position, I'm going to go ahead and give you a quick measurement.


Thule Archway Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Ford Explorer

Today on our 2016 Ford Explorer, 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'd like to show off is it has this integrated cable lock here at the end. You'll pull the cable out, wrap it around the bikes, and put it back into this portion here, and then lock it into place, preventing theft and tampering. It grips the bike by 3 points.


Thule Passage Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Ford Explorer

Today on our 2016 Ford Explorer 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 and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now how this actually grips the bike, we're going to have three points of contact with the bike's frame. We're going to have two rubber straps up at the top here and one off to the side. That's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and possibly hitting the bike in front of it. Let's go ahead and take it off and set it aside. With it in this position, I'm going to go ahead and give you a quick measurement.


Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Ford Explorer

Today on our 2014 Ford Explorer we're doing a test fit of the Thule Raceway Pro trunk-mount 2-bike rack. That part number is TH9001PRO. Now we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you how we do that. We have two cradles in place with three straps, two on our frame and one as our anti-sway strap in the back. We're just going to pull down and lift up to release those.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 5 Bikes While Towing a Pop Up Camper
  • The Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 would be an excellent choice to be used in conjunction with towing your current pop up trailer and a hitch mounted bike rack that has a carrying capacity of 5 bikes.

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For 2015 Honda CR-V
  • There are a couple different style bike racks that may work for you. You stated you want a bike rack that goes behind your CR-V and not on the roof. We offer trunk mount bike racks and the other style bike rack we offer would be a hitch-mounted bike rack. The trunk mount bike rack I recommend is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Typically we do not recommend using trunk mounted bike racks on vehicles that have spoilers. Most plastic and fiberglass spoilers cannot handle the weight of a bike rack and bikes and will bend or even break sooner or later. If the spoiler on your 2013 Mazda 3 hatchback is metal and part of the rear hatch, rather than a separate plastic or fiberglass spoiler, then you can use a trunk mounted bike rack without having to worry about the weight of the rack damaging the spoiler. You can...

  • Which 2 Bike Rack Will Work On A Ford Escape Without A Trailer Hitch
  • Since you do not have a hitch on your Ford Escape you can use a trunk bike rack. Thule and Yakima will both have two choices each that will carry two bikes and fit a Ford Escape. The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit on a Ford Escape. It has a weight capacity of 70 lbs. and attaches to the vehicle by six straps for added stability.. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I...

  • 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...

  • Will the Saris Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V
  • 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...

  • 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....

  • Trunk Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • I would recommend the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack # TH9001PRO. This rack is one of the best trunk mounted bike racks on the market because of how easy it is to install/uninstall, how light it is and because it has rubber coated steel cables instead of nylon straps like other trunk mounted racks. I also checked with Thule and this rack is confirmed to fit your vehicle. Since you plan on carrying womens framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 2008 Toyota Highlander for Very Occasional Use
  • There are two possible ways that you can carry a bike on your 2008 Toyota Highlander, but I am sorry to say that a trunk mount bike rack will not work. It cannot be safely attached to the vehicle. However, you can still use either a trailer hitch mounted rack or a roof rack. If you want to go with a trailer hitch, I recommend Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75586. And for a bike rack, you can go with something basic like the Commuter 2 Bike Carrier, # HR2500. This is a good, solid rack for...

  • 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...

  • Adapter Bar for a Womens Step Through Bike Frame on a hanging Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
  • In order to use a hanging bike rack with a step through frame bike, you would need to use an adpater bar. The Yakima Tube Top, # Y02531, would work. It grips the bike at the handle bar post and seat post and provides a secure point to place the bike on a hanging bike rack. I have included a link to the installation details and a video showing how the adapter works.

  • 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...

  • Comparing the Yakima KingJoe and Saris Bones Bike Racks for a 2013 Honda Fit
  • I recommend the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack, # SA805, for your 2013 Honda Fit. This bike rack has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and the injection-molded plastic construction makes it a great lightweight bike rack. At almost 10 lbs, this bike rack is easy for anyone to install or uninstall. It also has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike. I have attached a review video of this bike rack for you to check out. The Yakima KingJoe 2 Bike Rack, # Y02619, is also a quality bike rack. Personally,...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Carrier for Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike on Toyota Prius
  • All of the hitches for the Toyota Prius are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers, so as long as you have a Class I trailer hitch you can use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R (for longer wheelbases) or # HR1000 and then add Trike Adapter, # HRTRK-ADP, to carry the trike. This set up is Class I compatible. I have linked instructions for you on the racks and adapter. You will need to stay within the 200 pound tongue weight rating of a class I hitch or the tongue weight rating...

  • 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...

  • For your 2005 Honda CRV with the outside mounted spare tire, the Thule Spare Time Bike Rack # TH963PRO would be a great choice.The Spare Time has a total weight capacity of 75 lbs. for two bikes. The Yakima SpareMe Bike Carrier, # Y02598, also might work if you take two measurements to be sure. First, the diameter of the center hole in your spare tire wheel needs to be larger than 1-3/16 inches. Second, the distance from the back of the wheel, where the mounting plate will bolt to the...

  • Bike Adapter Bar for an Electra Townie 7D Mens Bike and Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack
  • The bike adpater bars, like # TH982XT, are also a fit for the trunk mount bike racks like the Raceway # TH9001PRO. All of the adapter bars work in the same manner, the bar telescopes to a certain length and clamp under the seat and under the handle bars so you can carry the bike more level. The # TH982XT would be a good choice. Looking at some pictures of the bike you would most likely have to raise the seat as high as you could to get an adapter bar to fit and be affective. Otherwise,...
