Video Transcript for Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Thule Roadway Tilting 2 Bike Rack, part number TH912XTR. The Thule Roadway hitch mounted 2 Bike Rack is the perfect solution for carrying 2 bikes from point A to point B. The dual arms are going to provide excellent support for our2 bikes. The cradles themselves are adjustable along the dual arms; they feature cut out grooves so it's going to accommodate our brake lines and our cables a little bit better. The anti sway cradle is going to secure our down tube in place preventing the sway and the movement in our bike while we're on the road. It also features a cam buckle strap which we'll can run through our bike's frame down through the accessory of the bike rack to reduce more movement in our bike. When not in use the Thule Roadway's dual arms fold down for compact storage.

The whole bile rack conveniently tilts away so we'll can gain easy access to our rear hatch. The Thule roadway features an anti rattle bolt which is going to help keep it snug up against the receiver while we're on the road; it going to reduce a lot of the movement. It also includes a tool to make it a tool free installation. The whole bike rack is made out of a durable steel construction with a 70 pound weight capacity and a black powder coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. As always Thule stands behind their product and offers a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we'll got all our features I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. This bike rack can be used for either inch and a quarter or 2 inch hitches.

That's class 1, 2, and 3. We'll have our shank with the 2 inch adapter on it for our 2 inch receiver. You can simply remove the bolts, take it off, and then you've got an inch and a quarter. Let's go ahead and put it in our 2 inch by 2 inch receiver. We'll line up our pin holes. Then we'll grab our included anti rattle bolt.

We'll insert that here on the passenger side. We'll just get that hand tightened for now. The nice thing about this anti rattle bolt is its going to help reduce some of the play and rattle within our hitch and our bike rack. You can see without that being tightened down we've got a lot of play in there. We'll grab our included tool and let's tighten that down.

There we'll go. Once that's secure as you can see most of that play is gone. Now we'll can get ready to load up our bike. What we'll want to do is raise up the dual arms. We'll come up here to the grey lever, pull up, rotate the dual arms up until it snaps into place. Just like that. Now let's undo our straps. Now let's grab our bike. We'll come up and over the dual arms, make sure it sets evenly in the bars. We'll also make sure that the down tube is nice and snug up at this cradle 00:02:41 here. We'll go ahead and do this one first. We'll bring our strap around, clip it in, and then for our top, too. Perfect. Now that we've seen how to load up one bike let's go ahead and load up one more. Now some bikes such as women's and children's and bikes with alternative frame styles medical advocate require the need for a bike adapter bar just sit evenly on the bike rack. Thule makes one here and that's going to be part number TH982XT. Let's go ahead and take our equipment strap and strap our bikes in. What we're g do is we're going to go through the loops down here in our bike rack, we'll come through the back, we'll bring the strap through our frame, and then we'll tighten that down. There we'll go. Now we're ready to hit the road. Here at our test course, let's first go into our sloam 00:03:38 because it's going to show side to side action such as going around corners and then basic maneuvering. Then on to our alternating speed bumps; this is going to show a twisting action such as going over pot holes or uneven pavement. Then on to our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the Thule Roadway Tilting 2 Bike Rack foe inch and a quarter and 2 inch hitches, part number TH912XTR.

Great Rack. It is a bit heavy, but that's what it takes to hold two bikes. No problems there. The rack assembled in 10 minutes and fit directly into the 1 1/4 tow hitch. Everything worked great. Just an observation....I think Thule messed up a little bit on the design (This did not effect my rating). The base of the unit can hinge away from the back of the vehicle to about a 135 degree angle. If the hinge was able to go all the way down to 180 degrees and lock in place, the same rack could be used to store bicycles in the off-season just by adding a base with the 1 1/4 inch vertical hitch slot to fit the rack in a fully upright position. 502066

Thanks very much for the follow up. All is OK after one year. The only problem I have is people keep stealing my hitch covers.

Master Lock Hitch Receiver and Coupler Latch Lock Set - Padlock - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches
$20.77
that includes a 1-1/4 inch, 2 inch, and a coupler lock that are all keyed the same. However, for a single 1-1/4 inch hitch lock you could try # 7680
Pro-Tech Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver
$6.63
. Or the # 7683
Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Flush Design for 2" Trailer Hitches
$14.03
for a 2 inch compatible hitch.

So we purchased the Thule "Roadway 2" bike rack with a two bike capacity and a 1.25" trailer hitch for our 2015 MAZDA 6 sedan. Essentially, we couldn't be more pleased with the purchase or this vendor as... - trailer hitch and bike rack arrived on time; - hitch installation (4 bolts) took less than one hour; - bike rack assembly (2 bolts) took 1/2 hour; - mounted on car looks fantastic!!! (See photos) - would order again in a minute from this vendor if I ever needed anything else.. Excellent Quality and Service!! 504690

I received my Thule Roadway 2-bike tilt-away rack in approximately 3 business days!! The rack weighs much more than I thought it would, however, I was able to mount it on my vehicle with some effort, but without enlisting the help of anyone else. The rack works wonderfully! I am able to tilt it away from the vehicle with ease. I no longer have to lift the tailgate of my vehicle and lift the bike into the back of the car. The bike mounts well on the rack and is very secure. I feel confident that once I travel with the bike I will be pleased with the performance from this product. 389941

I had my local garage attach this rack while installing the tow hitch (#24882) compatible with my 2013 Chevy Cruze LTZ. I haven't taken it off yet (only 3 weeks since installed), so I cannot yet comment on ease to attach/remove. I see it's hex bolt connection, and wrench is provided. A "quick release" mechanism would be cool, but I think the bolt is better for anti-theft and to stabilize the rack in the hitch slot. Works extremely well with wife's and mine Schwinn bikes. Use the provided strap to minimize bike sway against the bumper on starts and stops. Though on my car, the distance from the bike to bumper is not very close. 304590

I ordered the DrawTite hitch for my 2017 Acura RDX and a Thule 2-bike carrier, and was notified that my order had shipped the same day I placed it. The hitch arrived on the delivery date promised. Like many others have mentioned in their reviews, the hitch had broken free from its flimsy internal supports and was sticking out the end of the box. However, hitches are made to live underneath cars for years, and nothing was damaged, just some minor paint scuffs. The carrier arrived a day later in good shape. I installed the hitch in less than an hour by myself--- and I'm 71, so this is proof that you don't have to be a young, fit guy to do the job, you can be an old, fit guy. My method might be considered unorthodox; my only helpers were a half inflated vinyl exercise ball and two of those flexible, rubber coated twisty tie things you can buy at [big box stores]. I threaded one tie through the unthreaded holes in each of the frame rails, with the ends hanging down, then placed the exercise ball in the middle where the center point of the hitch would be. I positioned (balanced) the hitch on the ball, then tilted one end to get it past the bumper fascia lip and the exhaust resonator. Once in place about an inch below the threaded bolt hole, I secured it in place with the twist tie and did the same at the other side. Then, I could just push the hitch up close enough to the bolt hole to get the bolt started on both sides. With the hitch securely hanging, I untied and removed the twist ties, installed the bolts in the unthreaded holes using the nuts-on-a-stick, and ran all the bolts down snug. From that point, all I had to do was torque everything to spec, put my tools away and treat myself to a cold beer as I gazed upon my finished project... 454221

I purchased a Thule bike rack before Christmas, but did not receive it until March due to delays. I was disappointed but these things happen. I was not able to have it installed until mid-June, at which time we discovered several nuts and bolts were missing. I contacted etrailer. Etrailer were fantastic at sending replacement parts, even though there was quite a lengthy time gap from purchase/receipt to installation. The customer service was fantastic. I would not hesitate to purchase again from etrailer! I love the bike rack! 524191

Decide last year to go with a trailer hitch bike rack. We had other strap-ons but they were all terrible. The actual hitch was easy to install, according to my husband. He and a friend attached it with no difficulty. As I have a Subaru Outback, I bought the specific one indicated and worked great. As for the Thule bike rack, we could not be happier. So easy to use and solid! No movement on the bikes at all. Our son lives in New Orleans La. and we spent 2 weeks with him over the Christmas/New Year holidays. He had a bike trail close to his house and then we went north to another beautiful trail. 3000 miles round trip and the bikes and rack didn't so much as "blip" on the ride. We checked the bikes and racks when we stopped and never were we concerned about safety. We always had the bike locks in place, but we were not concerned bikes or the rack would be a problem. I have been approached by people asking if I liked the rack and where did I purchase it? I give praise to e-trailer for their products and customer service, always recommending them. Looking forward to another season of biking and using the rack! 374859

The rack is great. Thule rips you off if you want a security lock. You have to buy one from them because they use a unique threads per inch on their security bolt. Other bolts will not fit (I've tried). The Thule lock is 2 -3 times the cost of other locks. I bought a heavy duty chain and a heavy duty Master lock that chains my rack to my car. 440486

I purchased the Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - TH912XTR online one evening and I had shipping information the next morning. The package arrived quickly by UPS. I was really surprised by the quality of construction and it's tightness at the joints. They were not loose at all and even required a few pounds of force to open/close the tilt and folding functions. The assembly was quick and easy. My only regret is that I didn't know that Thule offered a Locking bolt to secure it to the vehicle. I will order one since there is not another hole in the rack to insert my present receiver locking bolt. I would recommend this bike rack to everyone. 237088

Do not buy. We were unhappy enough that we replaced it within a month. Contrary to advertising, it DOES NOT fit on a Jeep Wrangler unless you buy an extension bar. Even then, the “flip down” feature is worthless, since it doesn’t bend down far enough to open the gate. It sticks out too far behind the Jeep with the extension. Finally, one of the tie straps broke on the fifth use. We replaced it with a spare-tire mounted Yakima and we are much happier. 496800

Thanks for the follow up Ted. This bike rack has a measurement from the hitch pin hole to the foot of the carrier that is 7.5 inches, and 11 inches to the upright mast. If you do use a hitch extender it does reduce you hitch weight capacity by 50 percent. I would recommend considering the Swagman trailhead # S63360
Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting
$149.95
. It has many of the same features as the Roadway, but it offers 11 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright. I have also included a link for your reference that helps to determine what kind of bike rack.

the product is a total overkill on strength /weight. at approx 35 lbs its ridiculously heavy for its intended use. one needs to be totally aware of the weight. i unfortunately over looked the weight factor. my wife cannot pick it up and place in the hitch. 437349

The rack was everything I imagined it to be. Very well designed and as heavy and solid as a rock. The minor assembly that was required wa very quick and easy. From the photos of the rack I couldn't figure out how the bike was going to he able to be cable locked to it but the two large and sturdy loops at the base of the rack will make it very easy. Also, those locking loops are part of the rack that fits into the hitch receiver which may also be locked. Of course anything can be defeated, but it may be easier to steal the entire vehicle the rack is mounted to than it would be to try and free any bikes properly locked to the rack. I won't be installing the tow hitch that I also bought from etrailer until tomorrow so I don't have photos yet. I'll post them on my hitch review when everything is complete. In addition to this being a great bike rack, the service I received from etrailer has been nothing short of spectacular. Great customer service, communication, and very fast shipping. Thanks to all at etrailer! 22168

Really good bike rack; well made, excellent design. The quick-release levers are especially nice. Took a star off only because it rattles in the hitch-socket. A single bolt tightener is kinda primitive. 562120

I don't like to review something before giving it a full trial, but it's a while before I can use this bike rack. The delivery was prompt. The rack was easy to assemble. It is easy to mount to my hitch. It seems very sturdy. It is easy to fold and unfold the forks. The tilt back and forth to open the hatch on my Subaru outback is simple and has plenty of clearance. All in all so far it seems like a good product. It bolts to your hitch with a supplied bolt and washers (the hitch insert is threaded) whitch eliminates vibration and gives a sturdy feel. A locking hitch pin can be purchased separately but is specific for these racks and in my opinion is redicously overpriced. If you're worried about theft you can use a strong bike cable lock and secure it to the hitch. 343080

Our bike rack was ordered on 5/2/17. I received it on 5/5/17. Tracking was provided by etrailer.com and was very easy to use. Etrailer.com was so friendly and helpful throughout, I'm certain we will order from them again. The bike rack attached to our receiver in minutes. The rest of the assembly was completed in less than 10 minutes. The product was shipped via UPS, and as always, the package looked like it was used for target practice, but that is common for UPS. Fortunately there was no damage to the product. Thank you etrailer for a great experience. We will order from you again. 376753

Thank you for the follow up. The bike rack is still working fine. We bike often and the rack handles our two bikes without issue. It’s amazing that after a year, you are still interested in how we are doing with our bike rack. Keep your business model just the way it is. We will purchase from etrailer again. Thank you

A high quality rack that was worth the extra cost. Very stable in the class 1~ 1.25" hitch, and the bike secures very well to the rack itself. Just took one bike on a trip about 60 miles each way without any problems. While I didn't go much above 60 mph, I really don't think faster speeds would present a problem. I added a couple of extra nylon straps just for added security but they probably weren't needed as the rack comes with a rubber anti-sway strap that secures to the frame and an extra-long nylon strap to reduce swaying. The 1.5" diameter tube of my mountain bike easily fits in the extra large cradles, something I wasn't sure would happen with some other racks with smaller cradles I looked at. One thing that may not make this a good product for everyone is that the rack is quite heavy, about 30lbs. That's no problem for me, but could be for some as it does take some effort to mount the rack into the hitch. Also you have to sit/squat on the ground to secure the mounting bolt. A wrench is provided, but this takes a little time to use as the bolt can only be turned about 1/8 turn at a time do to interference with the hitch. I'm guessing a socket wrench might work better? I'm finding installation is going quicker now that I've done it several times. Security may be an issue and I wouldn't leave the rack unattended very long, especially overnight. The locking bolt, which I did not purchase, costs extra. But I have an old bike lock that can chain the lock to the hitch. I guess the chain could be cut, but how many people walk around with bolt cutters and a wrench set? It certainly serves as a deterrent, but just to be safe I still wouldn't leave it out overnight. One issue I had during assembly was that the rack did not fold down as it should to allow easier trunk access when mounted. I eventually figured out the pre-assembled bolt at the joint was too tight. I loosened it just a bit and then the rack worked fine. Etrailer's customer service was exceptional. I had a couple of questions that were answered promptly. Item shipped promptly and was received on schedule. Their large number of videos helped my decision making too. 570632

Extremely easy to assemble. Holds bikes well. Simple yet fulfills its purpose beyond expectations. Thule makes fantastic products and etrailer has easily been the best place to purchase from. This is where I will be purchasing from in the future if need be. The fact that etrailer reaches out to their customers every step of the way shows they care about what they distribute as well as their customers. 517391

Solid rack, a little pricey if you add the lock/stabilizer bolt. Its solidly built and should do the job for transporting my bikes. Just installed it on my 2018 4runner. Very easy installation. I did have some problems with interference between my mountain bike, and my wifes hybrid.Have not tried any of my road bikes on it yet. I have a handmade Pelizzoli (Ciocc) steel frame and Im a little wary of putting it on the rack because of what I believe is a major flaw of the rack. I spent the extra money to upgrade to the Roadway because it folds(good) and it comes with the stabilizer setup(weak)....The stabilizer that clamps to the downtime is so flimsy it barely holds the bike from moving. I haven`t used for any long trips yet so I can't say if the swaying , and the bikes banging into each other will be a problem.Overall I would say I like the steadiness of the rack frame. I may have to fine tune the mounting system..BTW I used cheapy bungee cords wrapped around the frame thru the font wheels to keep the forks straight and the wheel from spinning .I`ll update once i get a trip or two on it 555630

I did want to let you know that we do have other offerings. If you are looking for a zero frame contact bike rack for your speciality bike that still fits in an 1-1/4 and 2 inch hitch receiver and has folding capabilities for a smaller foot print on the back of your 4Runner, I recommend the Swagman Transfer bike rack # TS02G
Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Tilting - Gray
$298.00
. This bike rack does cost a little more than your Roadway, and does not offer a locks or a locking hitch pin, but you would not have any concerns about the frame of your bike being compromised by the straps, or for two bikes to be in contact with each other. I have included a couple of links below for your reference.

The bike rack was well built. It was easy to assemble. This will allow me to carry my bike on the rack instead of having to put it in my truck bed. Really like the fact that it folds down providing more room in the garage. It fit great in the Curt hitch receiver I had purchased earlier. 449872

Perfect for my needs. Thule Roadway 2 person bike rack for a 2 seater car. Everything included for a solo install in minutes. Heavier than I thought, but at least I know it's solid. Rack is set far enough away so that my 29 inch wheels do not come close to my car, if not using included strap. Holds bike securely. Folds up for easy storage. Went with a hanging rack so I can attach a snowboard rack as well. Very satisfied. 452200

After a couple of weeks of researching bike racks on the internet I choose the Thule Roadway 2-bike system, TH912XTR for my new Toyota RAV4. A week previous I had a 2" Draw-tite hitch installed. My criteria for selection was that it should hold 2-bikes, have quick-release (rather than removable pins) for manipulating both the hanging bars and the mast, light and maneuverable enough that I can remove it easily between my occasional bike trips and be less than $200. A lot of my research was done on the etrailer.Com site which contains a ton of information including customer reviews, photographs and videos. If I needed info that was not available I could easily contact their sales reps by email. The product weight, for example, was not often listed. The only really lightweight racks that i found that were otherwise comparable were made of aluminum but some of the reviews were not so favorable. I received the bike rack by UPS 3 days after ordering. Assembly of the two parts into one was extremely easy - two bolts, and then installing the straps. Placing the unit into the hitch was not difficult. Getting the holes to line up for the hitch pin was a little problematic but I settled on using a screwdriver inserted into the hitch to help me line them up. This will work rather well going forward. Similarly removing the rack and placing it in storage was not bad - a little heavy but with two hands it is like 15lbs in each hand - so no problem me, but maybe it would be for someone who is not strong. Loading the bike was a cinch since the online videos prepared me for the process. Two straps on top, one anti-sway strap for the seat post, and a longer anti-sway strap to hold the lower part of the bike to the mast. I added a 3 foot bungee cord going from wheel to wheel at the bottom keep the front wheel from turning. It sounds like a lot strap securing but it all takes one minute after you figured it out. The quick release levers work great to raise and lower the hanging bars and especially to lower the mast to gain access to the rear door. One issue I encountered was that the mast set off alert for my back facing radar but only when I was in Reverse. At that time the rear view camera was partially obstructed by the bike rack but not badly, even when the bike was on the rack. All in all it performed exactly as I expected based on its description, photos, videos and discussion with the sales reps. I took one trip, so far with the bike and car - no problems. I think this product may be unavailable from Thule at this time, but etrailer.com has it. Since buying this, I came across a Yakima 2-bike system that is probably aluminum - only 20 lbs - but is probably a lot more expensive. I would recommend this rack. 449669

I put in on, but only used it once so far. But, it went together and on the van like a dream. It is rock solid. Bikes go on/off real easy. Of course, you have to be strong and agile enough to lift the bikes up no matter what type of rack you buy. I can rock the van back and forth with the bike rack. I've had a number of bike racks and I now believe that you get what you pay for. Thule is a great example. 390925

The Titan model bike rack by Swagman is a bit heavy, but that's easily accepted because of its beefy construction. It requires very little time and effort to assemble. It slides into a two inch trailer hitch and after tightening the locking bolt, I found it very rigid, which would result in no rattling, when underway at 60 miles per hour transporting two adult bicycles. The fold down feature for trunk access is a snap to operate and likewise the fold down feature of the rack bar. The video produced on etrailer.com's web site was most helpful in making my decision over many competitive products and the rack performs exactly as shown. 411469

The rack itself has withstood the test of time. i was even rear ended and the pole didnt bend or cause any issues with mounting bikes. very easy to use. had it attached to my car all year and there are no differences with the hinges than the first day i had them. Unfortunately, one of the bolts used to attach the whole rack to the car hitch was not long enough to fully reach through the holes. the rack still works and stays put, but there is a rattle and i can physically shake the rack with little effort. 562153

I am sorry to hear about your accident. I hope everyone is ok! Just a quick note – when your vehicle has been involved in an accident, the manufacturer recommends that you replace the hitch or hitch accessory due to potential unseen damage resulting from the collision. This could be why your bike rack rattles now.

Received bike carrier in 2 days. Installed on 13 year old Subaru in about 40 minutes. Have used twice since then and this carrier is very heavy duty and sturdy. There is no movement of the carrier at all when driving. I only carry one bike but I am sure two bikes would be the same. Once I realized that the plastic parts that the bike frame sits on has to be rotated on the round support bar, everything was easy. Highly recommend this carrier and etrailer.com 548920

This is before going on the road, although seems very sturdy, so I might update later. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star is that the instructions don't show in enough detail how the sway baskets are supposed to attach and yet connect solidly with the frame. They'd be great if they actually met the frame instead of simply poised over it. Equally vague is the way the strap is supposed to attach, keeping the bike from swaying to and fro. YouTube will have to be researched. And although the rack is heavy it CAN be dis-attached as one unit by removing the one bolt and washers at the bottom and storing if you don't want the rack attached to your car all the time. 365817

Just received my bike rack carrier - have not had time to try it out yet. But happy with the delivery time and it arrived as I expected. Easy to put together - only few things to make it usable. Just would have liked to have a lock to lock this bike rack to my truck. But see that one sells for $50 - can't believe how expensive just a bolt would be. Bike hitch is what I expected. Have used similar before so have no complaints. 266865

I gave this 3 stars in an attempt to be fair since I returned it without even opening the shipping package. When the package arrived I could barely lift it to get it inside the house. This rack weighs 30 pounds which I did not realize when I ordered it. Much too heavy for me to manage. I do not want to leave it on the car fulltime even though the arms fold and the rack tilts. The rack I was trying to replace only weighs 19 pounds. I am sure based on the weight it is very sturdy but had to return it and look for something lighter. I received excellent service both before (although wish I had asked about the weight) and after the sale handling my return. 347838

The Roadway Rack is excellent. As expected. Quality materials. Heavy metal. Easy to install. I wish the bike rack came with the extra security lock but, I'm sure its okay without locking. I've driven recently 5hrs with a road-bike on the rack and it was perfectly fine, no wobble. I drive a Honda Fit, the rack sits below the rear window (perfect), never even know its there. The real reason I'm bothering to write a review is this company is STELLAR. I was reluctant to order from them b/c I didnt recognize their name. They communicated so well with me directly after purchase, confirming the order, then verifying the shipping address and then also assisting when the shipping wasnt successful (my error). It was like 5 Star Hotel service! Everything was "no problem" and they handled everything and then checked back in to make sure I was all set. Really, just WOW. I'm sold on these guys customer service and will definitely be ordering again. 388353

I really like the bike rack.. especially being able to tighten it to the trailer hitch so it won't wobble... I just wish it had somewhere I could put a cable through to lock the bikes to the rack ...like a welded U bolt otherwise it's a great product... gladly sadly l give it 4.5 stars 671174

This rack works exceptionally well. Only negative is the rack bends partway forward to enable access to the rear of the car but does not fully extend and as a result limits access to the back.

The rack works incredibly well. The bikes hold secure. Two negatives; weight and the swing hinge. The rack is sturdy which I like but the price for that security is weight. Inserting it in the tow bar takes some effort. My car gate turns out and does not lift up. The rack can be lowered but only partially making access to the trunk limited. That said I would still buy the rack again. It is easy to load and unload the bikes. 656838

The first option is to put a roof rack on your Land Rover and add roof-mounted bike racks along with a separate ski/snowboard carrier.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Prius Eco

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Prius Prime with Curt Hitch Installed
  • For a Class I hitch like yours we do not recommend the use of hitch adapters since they cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed on by 50 percent and add quite a bit of movement. Instead we'd recommend a bike rack like the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR that has a longer shank that will fit underneath the bumper and not cause any fit issues. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well that shows it installed on a similar 2016 Toyota Prius.

They really aren't an ideal solution but the part # HTAD will work in a Class I hitch like the # 24949. You should note too that the weight of this adapter is 7 bls.

The Roadway has a 1-1/4 inch shank so it will fit perfectly! I do recommend using the Snug Tite hitch lock # THSTL2 to lock this bike rack to your trailer hitch and protect your investment.
