Thule Archway Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2015 Fiat 500

Today on our 2015 Fiat 500 we're going to be doing a test fit of the Thule Archway XT. This is going to be your two-bike carrier that mounts of the trunk of your vehicle, part number TH9009XT. It will fasten with six of these cam locks and hooks, one on each side and two on the top, as well as two on the bottom. There is a nice rubber coating over it so when you slide it over through the cracks, whether it's on your trunk or on the side here, then it won't scratch your paint or damage the vehicle. They do come with extra-long straps, so always make sure to tie up that excess and fasten down and tighten all your cam locks. To tighten up your cam locks, you just simply pull on one end, pulling the excess out. If you pull here, then you can simply pull out that excess on this side. Once you have it tight and secure, fasten up and secure all your excess. Up top here you'll see this long shaped lever.


Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2015 Fiat 500

Today on our 2015 Fiat 500, we're going to be doing a test fit of the Thule Race Way Pro. This is going to be your hanging style 2 bike rack that's going all in your trunk or your hatch. I'll show you how it's all put together. First steps when you get your rack and you pull it out, after you get all your straps connected and everything, is to get onto the Thule Fit Guide and find out on the Thule website, go to their fit guide and find out what setting you need to set your rack at. For this particular one we're going to have to set it at 10 and to do so, I'll show you how. If you look on the backside here you'll see 2 clamps and this will be on that upper arm. Go ahead and lift up on those and then you'll see some arrows.

Trunk Bike Racks Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Mazda 3 Hatchback with Rear Spoiler
  • I have included a picture here. If your spoiler looks like the one pictured then you can use the Yakima SuperJoe Pro 2, # Y02629. I cannot confirm fit for the KingJoe. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes I recommend using the Tube Top adapter bar, # Y02531, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level.

  • Using Trunk Mounted Bike Rack on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • Thule does not recommend using any rear strap-mounted bike rack on the Odyssey, due to the fact that the rear hatch that the rack would attach to is not strong enough to bear the weight of the rack and the bikes. Hollywood Racks makes a trunk mounted rack that would work for you. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3. The rack is designed differently than the Raceway Pro 3 you're asking about. The Over-The-Top uses...

  • 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. The # D210 is compatible with and an existing 2 inch hitch and provides a 2 inch receiver for accessory use. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 750 pounds total, and a receiver capacity of 350 pounds. Therefore the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed 350...

  • 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...

  • Recommendations for a 2 Bike Rack for a 2010 Honda CR-V
  • We do have an option for a trunk mounted bike rack for the 2010 CR-V. The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 # Y02624 will fit your CR-V. But you will actually need # Y02624-12 because it comes with the glass hook accessory which is needed to mount the rack to your CR-V.

  • Recommended 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack for 2007 Honda Odyssey Van
  • For your 2007 Honda Odyssey the trunk-mount bike rack that I suggest is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This unique carrier features an innovative arched frame design that allows it to work well on vehicles with spoilers. Many otherwise excellent racks cannot be used on such vehicles but the HRF2-3 will avoid any interference with the rear spoiler. If any of the bikes does not have a horizontal top frame tube, such as some women's and alternative design bikes,...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT
  • We have a few different options for carrying bike racks with your 2013 Hyundai Elantra, however, Thule has not released any information regarding bike rack or roof rack fits for your vehicle. If you were interested in a trunk mounted bike rack, then I would recommend taking a look at the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack, # Y02624. With this bike rack you will want to use the Glass Hatch Hooks that are included in place of the upper hooks. If you were interested in a roof rack and...

  • What Rear Mounted Bike Rack Will Fit On 2005 Honda CRV With Outside Mounted Spare Tire
  • 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...

The Yakima KingJoe 2 Bike Rack, item # Y02619, is designed to fit on your vehicle and there is a photo of it mounted on a Cobalt SS with spoiler, see photo at right. The photo is of the KingJoe 3 bike rack, item # Y02620, which has the same mounting frame as the 2 bike rack. I spoke with my contact at Thule and was told that the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier, item # TH9006XT...

  • Will a Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V
  • If you have a 2007 or newer Honda CR-V (without the rear-mounted spare tire), then you can use a Yakima trunk mount bike rack, but you will be limited to carrying a maximum of 2 bikes. This is because with the Yakima racks that will fit (see link) you must use the glass hook adapters and this reduces the capacity of the 3 bike models down to only 2 bikes. None of the Thule racks, including the Gateway that you referenced are listed as a fit. The bike rack that is closest to the Thule...

  • Bike Rack Options For Carrying 2 Bikes that Weigh 100 pounds Total on a 2012 Mini Countryman
  • We do have an option for carrying two bikes weighing 100 lbs on your 2012 Mini Countryman, if your vehicle is equipped with factory flush mounted rails. Unfortunately, our trunk mount bike rack suppliers have determined that your vehicle is unable to support the weight of a trunk, or hatch in this case, mounted bike rack and bikes. If you do have the flush mounted rails on the roof of your Countryman, I would recommend the Thule AeroBlade Podium Roof Rack, part # TH460R, # THARB47 and...

  • 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...

  • 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 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,...

I posted a photo showing the KingJoe Pro 2 on a Fit, and a standard KingJoe rack on a Prius, which is very similar to the Pro 2 model, see link. If you will be carrying bikes with a frame that does not have a horizontal top bar, you will also need a bike adapter bar, # Y02531, to install bikes with these style frames on the rack. We have a video review of this...

  • 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.
