worked well to level out my beach cruiser on the rack since it has a slanted cross tube. It expands easily and is easy to put on.

I’m really happy with my new Draw-Tite hitch and Swagman bike rack! They work really well on my 2010 Honda Fit, and look really sleek and stylish, too. I had my local car service place put them on them for me, and the guys found them very easy to install. I’ll be carrying just one bike, so I put on just one set of tire holders, and they’re on the outer side so I can load and unload the bike without having to lift it around the backside of the mast – so easy! I also got a Swagman adapter bar (thanks for the suggestion, Alexis!) to work with the curvy step-through frame, and it’s very easy to click into place. I’m several miles away from nice safe bike trails, and I’m really enjoying how this new setup helps me go there so I can ride my new bike in a good place.

Heavy duty product...Easily holds 2 RAD City Step-Thru E-Bikes. Locking mechanism is easily picked with paper clips. Son-in-law opened it in less than 1 minute and he only watched a video [online]. Had to buy an extra tension bar because of "girl-bike" configuration. Still easy to set up. Sits tight, no noise. Fine product. Need better security product, bike theft is too profitable and too easy...thieves use portable angle grinders.

Very useful and easy to use. Could use a ramp for heavy bikes.

This Thule rack is great. It is simple to install and use. You do want the tools that come with it to install and tighten the rack, but those are simple processes = 10 minutes of work. My only issue, and this is with Thule not e-trailer, is that the rack is a little snug with two adult and two children bikes. The four bikes fit, but an extra 4-6" would make the process easier. But overall the rack is very good and I highly recommend it. It is easy to use, and secure with four bikes and lengthy highway travel.

Thule I purchased Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack - Trunk Mount.–SEPT. 3rd 2019 I hauled my bikes over some of the toughest roads in NY to see how well the Raceway Pro-2 would hold up. I kept looking out of my rearview mirror to make sure our bikes were not laying in the road or another car's windshield but I had to know if the videos and reviews were true. I gave the Raceway Pro 2-BIKE RACK 5 stars since it behaved as advertised. I did not realize how heavy the bike rack was but it is a well-constructed product.  Since gaining confidence in the stability /strength of the Raceway Pro I have taken my bikes on the highway, over bumpy roads with potholes and the bikes held steady and did not sway. I can also say the Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar I purchased for my wife’s bike worked as advertised. With the bike key locking method we felt safe enough to leave the bikes locked in a parking lot while we had breakfast.  I recommend Raceway Pro for those who enjoy bicycle riding and want their bikes to be secure while traveling. I would suggest however to those who are frequent bike riders to purchase additional replacement stretch bands because I don’t know the strength of the bands long term.  It’s always good to have a spare should a rubber band snaps and you don’t have a spare.  Just a precaution.  Safe travels

Very good products. I am not mechanically handy. Had product sent to my car Mechanic Scott. He said it was easy to assemble rack and the hitch went on easy. The instructions say to take off side panels on the Rogue to attach hitch. They say leave off, but my mechanic took the time to cut some of the panel so it will fit back on. bikes are very secure and the rack does not stick out to far. I ordered the swagman bike adapter for my wife's bike and it makes it much easier to fit on the rack. The reason for only 4 stars, the order dept. said I might need an extension for the hitch to rack (I did not ) and had me wondering why it was never mentioned in any of the material I read on line. My wife and I are seniors and it very easy to use, very strong and safe to travel with for long distances.

After using our bike rack for a year, we have no complaints. It is very easy to take off and put on. It is a light weight quality build rack. Excellent for taking bikes long distance and a few miles.

I used the bike rack for the first time today drive over 100 Miles. The installation video tutorial was excellent and helped me in installing it on my vehicle. I have a RAV4 with a spoiler and The bike rack fit perfectly not touching the spoiler as described. It was able to fit 3 bikes securely as described. I had a Thule before this and this bike rack far exceeds the quality and I feel comfortable and safe using it. I would highly recommend this bike rack and etrailer.

I was looking for something to help hang my wife's bike on a car bike rack. The girls style bike is hard to hang properly if at all. I found this adapter bar on etrailer.

I will do business again with trailer. Thank you.

I am very grateful to the experts at e-trailer. If they don't know the answer to my question they admit it, arrange a call back with the answer. Fantastic! Thank you so much. We have purchased many items from etrailer. LOVE the product videos and then the personal contact for more indept/confirmation questions. I also REALLY like the "will it fit" utility. It's spot on every time! The cross bars for our step through e-bikes on the RV bike rack which we also purchased from e-trailer solve our problem perfectly. Thank you so much!

  • Trunk Mounted 2-Bike Rack Recommendation For 2013 Infiniti G37 Sedan
    The best option for a trunk-mounted 2-bike rack for your 2013 Infiniti G37 sedan is from Thule, the Thule Gateway Pro 2-Bike Rack # TH88VR. The reason I really like the Gateway Pro is because it comes with highly durable anti-sway cradles and ratcheting straps which secure your bikes at three different points. The reason this is important is because it ensures your bikes don't make any contact with each other, or your Infiniti. The Gateway Pro # TH88VR is also super simple to install,...

    The Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes part # 64005 can be used with only 1 bike on the rack. It does not have to be used on all of the bikes. It is used to give step through bike frames like children's and women's bikes a horizontal cross tube to hang from. If your other bikes have a horizontal cross tube to hang evenly from you don't need an adapter for those bikes. If your bike rack is a platform rack and has ratcheting arms...

    It is highly recommended to use a bike adapter bar if you are carrying any women's, children's or alternative framed bikes without the top horizontal cross tube. This is because most bike racks, like the Yakima HangOut 3 # Y02638, use the horizontal cross tube to mount the bikes to the bike rack. When a horizontal cross tube dips down, like with a women's bike, or is very short, like on a children's bike, mounting bikes to a bike rack can be difficult. Using a bike adapter bar will not...

  • Material of Bike Frame Adapter Bar Hooks
    Some of the bike adapter bars, like my favorite of them the Swagman # 64005, have metal hooks that are coated in vinyl. The vinyl protects your bike from getting any scratches. I like the Swagman because the tube is easy to extend or retract and the hooks open to the side instead of up. The bars that have hooks that open up are harder to use sometimes becaue the seat often gets in the way of the hope hook.

  • Using an Adapter Bar with a Step Through Bike on a Frame Mount Bike Rack
    Adapter Bars like part # 64005 can be used on platform frame mount racks. You'd load the bike as normal and clamp to the bar, rather than the bike frame. This however requires that you use a cable lock like part # e98891 to secure the bike to the rack, as the frame bar doesn't provide any security.

For that long of a trip I definitely recommend the bikes be as level as possible. The solution is often to use a wheel mount platform rack instead; however, they only fit as small as 20 inch wheels. With that being said sometimes the small bikes do fit hanging bike racks. It depends on how much space there is for the arms to fit under...

  • Is it Necessary to use a Bike Rack Adapter Bar for Mountain Bikes
    It is not always necessary to use an adapter bar. The adapter bar has two main tasks: 1. Provide a good attachment point for the cradles on the rack 2. Level the bikes so that one of side of the rack is not bearing much more weight than the other. If you can keep the weight balanced without it and have room to get the bike on the rack, an adapter may not be necessary. It is always a good idea to use an adapter to keep the bikes level, but may not always be necessary.
