The Thule Doubletrack is the perfect platform-style carrier if you are seeking versatility in a rack. Doubletrack holds two bikes of almost any design, suspension style or wheel size, including children's bikes, cruisers and bikes with fenders.

Thule Doubletrack ratcheting arms with cushioned hooks with locksThule Doubletrack lever to fold down mast

With the Doubletrack's low loading height and ratcheting arms on the central mast, your bikes are mounted and ready to go in seconds. The arms include cushioned hooks that adjust independently to hold two bikes of different styles and sizes. The mast also folds down easily when you pull a lever at the base, and each arm has a Thule One Key System lock to secure your bikes to the rack.

Thule Doubletrack sliding wheel trays

Doubletrack accommodates bikes of almost any size and length with reinforced, sliding wheel trays. These pivoting trays feature ratcheting straps and move along the platform to adjust to your specific bikes. The wheel straps also ratchet to stabilize your bikes for transport and eliminate bike-to-bike contact.

Thule Doubletrack lever folds rack for storage

The versatile Doubletrack is easy to store when you're not carrying bikes. An integrated lever (Hitch Switch) lets you fold your bike rack flat against the rear of your vehicle.

Thule Doubletrack Stinger Swinger hitch sleeve adapter

Doubletrack includes an adapter sleeve (Stinger Swinger) that slides over the 1-1/4" shank to convert the rack for use with 2" hitch receivers. The sleeve attaches to the shank with a single screw and can be installed or removed in seconds.

Thule Doubletrack Snug Tite hitch lock

The Doubletrack includes a Snug Tite hitch lock that secures your rack to your hitch receiver. The threaded bolt in the Snug Tite lock also serves as an anti-wobble device to eliminate sway and rattle in the receiver.

I purchased this rack from etrailer.com at the beginning of June and didn't want to write a review until we had put this through some real world use. Very pleased with etrailer.com as they did a really super job shipping it out next day plus the free shipping. They got it right out the door, not like some places where you get put on the bottom of the shipping list if you choose the free shipping option and wait two or three days for shipping to happen. So I give etrailer 5 stars for their end of things! Thanks guys. About the rack itself. Assembly instructions were simple and good, typical of what you would find with IKEA furniture. Some of the smaller items were already assembled at the factory even though the instructions indicate you need to put them together so don't go crazy looking for bits and pieces that are not in the bag. Just note that they are already assembled and in place and that you don't have to put everything together yourself. The universal tool that ships with the rack will do an OK job but a set of real box end wrenches or sockets will make for an easier and more secure assembly.I do love the fact that the universal tool has a bottle opener built into it, I wonder how many people even notice that. I have to give it to my ancestors the Swedes for always being prepared for anything! Once assembled the rack mounts very securely in the hitch receiver when you tighten the included hitch bolt. As noted in other reviews don't depend on the simple locks that come with the rack for security. A mildly determined thief can over come them by simply unbolting a couple of the bolts that hold everything together. That said the locks are good for casual security if you are having lunch or getting supplies and not attending the vehicle but it's in a visible area. Otherwise run a cable lock through the bikes and through some secure point on the vehicle, use common sense here folks. If you are traveling overnight bring the bikes indoors, this is a nice bike rack, not a bank vault. We love how easily the bikes load on and off the rack and how secure they are held in place while driving on the road. This is a well engineered rack and I'm very glad the investment was made up front and not in something less solid to save a few bucks. I can mount the rack onto the truck, load two bikes and be ready to travel in five minutes. As far as how the rack actually secures the bikes I like how they are not moving around and banging into each other or the truck. The wheel tiedown straps are simple but secure and the ratcheting frame clamp lets you lock the bikes in place so they just don't move, period. I drive a Ford Ranger and my one complaint is I can't drop the tailgate fully without having the tail gate handle land right on top of the latch button on the rack. Just one more inch would have done it but other than that I'm very happy. I've added some red conspicuity tape to the rack so that when it's folded up or down there is a nice red reflective surface to attract attention of the driver behind. You just can't be too visible, every bike rider should know that. My truck has a 2" receiver and the rack does not wobble or bounce around with the bikes on it with the hitch bolt torqued securely. Off road it does pretty well too but no point in beating your equipment to death so we go easy and everything is fine. Another nice "feature" is when we are done for the day and we want to clean the trail dirt off the bikes they are at a great height and position to wash them down and clean them up. Can't do that with roof racks or most other style racks! I give that a big plus for usability! If you plan to take the rack on and off the vehicle frequently bear in mind this is made of steel, aluminum will be lighter but you pay the price $$. If you can lift a standard bike on and off the rack you can handle the weight of this rack just fine. Overall we are very pleased with this bike rack and have recommended it and etrailer.com to several other people who stop and ask what we think. It has well thought out features, is solid and rugged and after a couple of months of real world use we can honestly say this rack was worth the price! And etrailer.com is a great place to buy it!! 143070

Still think this was a great investment! We now leave the rack on the truck for the season unless I need thetruck for hauling other stuff. My wife and I love how we can just popthe bikes on and off and go hit a new trail on the weekend or stop atone of our regulars on the way home after work.Everyone that sees it is very impressed and we have recommended etrailer.com several times to friends and strangers alike.

I purchased this bike rack in January along with a hitch bar for my 1994 Acura Integra. I usually use it to carry my bike at least 3 times a week. Overall it's been a decent rack, but I have a couple of concerns. After just a couple of months the foam rubber covers on the top tube hooks started polishing the matte black finish on my bike top tube into a shiny spot. Shortly after that, the foam wore all the way through, making a hole in the foam, and now has irreparably damaged the finish on my bike top tube. I now have 4 spots of missing paint on the top tube of my brand new bike. My wife's new bike also has a large spot of missing paint after using this rack and carrying both our bikes on a 1,000 mile road trip. I have to use a piece of foam pipe insulation with velcro straps around my top tube just to keep the hook from further damaging my bike finish. There also seems to be a good bit of movement in the rotating joints, especially between the middle horizontal support and the vertical support with the hooks. I added a couple of washers on the bolt to help take out some of that movement. I was quite nervous at the amount of movement of the whole rack with 2 bikes on it during our 1,000 mile road trip, but everything made it safely, except for the damage to my wife's bike's top tube finish. The other thing is that this rack is very heavy, and quite cumbersome and difficult to move around in the garage when the rack is not on the car. I prefer to take the rack off the car when not carrying bikes, so it gets removed and installed quite a bit. This has also caused the black paint to get quite scuffed or come off completely in several spots where the rack fits into the hitch, and in the hitch receiver itself. I did add a good bit of safety reflector tape to help the rack stand out more to vehicles approaching from behind. I would say this is a good rack for weekend use, but probably not for using every day or even every other day as I do. It would be nice if Thule offered replacement foam pieces for the hooks, or something of better material that won't wear through so easily and damage the bike frame finish. 96191

Foam covers on the hooks continue to wear holes in them despite my attempts to twist the foam around to different spots. All 3 of our bikes have damage to the top tube paint finish from this rack.Also, the rack itself has a HUGE design flaw. Even when your bike is locked in place, someone can simply remove the carriage boltsnuts holding the vertical arm to the main hitch bar a few seconds with a power driver, and BOOM your bikes are gone.I do not recommend this rack to anyone. Look for a platform rack that secures the bikes by the tires only. That way the rack doesnt touch the cars paint or the bikes frame.

I am just getting into biking after more than 40 years and needed a bike carrier for my pick-up truck which has a 2" class III hitch. A carrier that has the bike hanging was a definite NO for me because I've witnessed them swinging from the backs of vehicles equipped with that type. I wanted my bike to be more secure than they allow. After much research I decided that the Thule TH990XT was going to give me what I wanted, a locking platform carrier at decent price. I'd read the reviews about the 1 1/4" x 2" adapter allowing some wobble (more on that later) and was looking for a straight 2" hitch mounted platform carrier but the prices were more than what I thought they were worth so I went ahead with my purchase of the TH990XT. First off the shipping of my bike carrier was free and right on time! Can't ask for much more than that! The box that the TH990XT was in showed no visible damage and upon opening the box no damage to any parts, which were all there. I forced myself to use the provide wrench, and not metric sockets w/ratchet wrench, to assemble the unit just to satisfy my curiosity as to whether the provided wrench would do the job. While it obviously took a little longer, the wrench that comes with the product did an excellent job which really surprised me! From the time I took delivery of the carrier, wheeling it up my driveway to save the UPS drivers back, to having my bike mounted on it to took me all of 40 min. The instructions, to me, are pretty straight forward and easy to follow. I have read where some people had a problem installing the locks but mine went in just like they were designed to be installed. I did end up with one extra piece that I couldn't even locate on the parts list. It is plastic, coned shaped, about 1" long with a shoulder on the larger end. I have no clue as to what it is for but perhaps it fell off the hitch pin end where the lock installs and was meant to protect that end. Pertaining to the hitch receiver wobble that some people have included in their reviews I have absolutely none of that. I had my truck shaking back and forth, up and down trying to replicate that but mine is rock solid in the hitch. The wobble comes from the looseness of the swing arms as they have to be a little loose to allow their pivoting features and may be a problem for some but I don't see it as a deal killer. I would think that any bike platform carrier that has pivot points would be somewhat wobbly where they pivot. The locking system while good to have can be defeated and if you are the least bit mechanically inclined you will see what I mean. However, like my dad always told me, locks only keep honest people honest and thieves will find a way. The weight of the unit is what you would expect from an all steel unit. It installs in the hitch very easily. The bikes are easy to mount and I really like the ratcheting wheel hold down straps that even have a molded rubber adapter that fits over the rim making the wheel much more secure. The ratcheting locking arms are a breeze to use as well and hold the bike very securely. Bottom line is that so far I am very pleased with my purchase, dealing with etrailer.com has been a pleasant experience and I would highly recommend that you purchase the TH990XT bike platform carrier from them. 47731

I researched a long time before settling on this rack and though it has only been a couple of weeks I am really pleased. I am a recreational biker and recently had my bike drop off a trunk mount rack where it was dragged about 1/2 a mile. I wanted a good stationary hitch mount rack that is sturdy. The 990XT fits that description. Received the 990XT a couple of weeks ago and lost no time in getting it assembled and installed. Assembly was a breeze, all the pieces were included and the instructions were clear. Installed the unit on my Ford Fusion using the 1 1/4" hitch connection and the carriage bolt provided. One thing that is good to know, the nuts and bolt heads require metric tools or sockets, US style won't work very well. Loading the bike on to the rack was pretty simple and must be done with the center hold down post in the horizontal position. The center hold down post requires two hands to raise into position, so the bike must be leaned forward to rest on the trunk. This is a potential problem as the surface of the trunk might be damaged. I use an old floor mat to protect the trunk as the bike rests on it, a pretty easy solution. The hold down hooks are ratcheted and are pushed down to hold the bike in position. Each hold down has a lock for security of the bike, very useful. I've used the rack several times since I received it and and really pleased. The bike is secure, there is little or no side to side movement, and only slight front to back movement during transport. Overall, this is a really good rack. This is my first purchase from etrailer and I would recommend them to others. I received several e-mails with shipping and delivery status. etrailer upgraded my shipping to fastest way without any additional cost. Very nice. 57399

The rack is still working great. I have used it a lot over the last year and the rack is still like new. Everything works great, keeping it clean and lubricated helps its working. A great product!

My husband and I assembled the Thule Doubletrack TH990XT bike carrier on the back of our 2013 Chevy Equinox. All of the parts were included and we were able to follow the enclosed instructions. It took us less than an hour and we are not usually very good at this sort of thing. We haven't taken the bikes out yet, but we like how the carrier can be left on the car and still gain access to the cargo area. We can even have both bikes on the carrier and still get the car in the garage. The upright tube and hook assembly bolts seem to be lose and we weren't sure if it should be tightened. Thought maybe it was lose in order to fold the assembly down when not in use. The other thing we noticed is that the wheel tray can still be moved when the cam lever is in the closed position. Tried to tighten them, but then cam lever couldn't be closed. It is much easier to put my small woman's bike on this carrier than on the kind that hang off the back of the car. So far we are pleased with our purchase and look forward to taking our bikes out on the carrier. 86735

Since the tray was loose at first, then after tightening it became too tight to close, there should be something in between. You can use partial turns on the cam lock to find the sweet spot so that the lever will provide some resistance, but not have to be forced down.

We really like our Thule doubletrack bike carrier. We have made a few round trips from MI to FL and we have had no problems carrying our bikes on the long trip. I would recommend this carrier to anyone. I have also been very satisfied with etrailer customer service. One of the wheel carriers fell off and was gone. I started to search online to find the part I needed and decided to contact customer service to be sure I ordered the right part. The customer service rep not only determined the part I needed but also found out that the carrier was still under warranty so there was no cost. I received the part very quickly. I was concerned about knowing how to put the part on and they emaed me a link to a video to show exactly how to install it. Great customer service! Thanks!

Overall I have found this to be a solid bike rack, well built, and easy to load and unload bikes. It is very adjustable to fit various bike sizes. I took 2 bikes on a 2 hour car drive to the trail and the bikes traveled well, very little movement on the rack and they seemed very secure. The rack has a nice feature where it goes into the receiver hitch on your vehicle that basically "bolts" into the hitch and tightens the rack to the receiver so there is no movement or rattle. This worked well. I purchased this particular rack primarily because of the locking features, both the rack to the receiver and the bikes to the rack. These locking mechanisms, while they do lock your bike to the rack, are somewhat less than solid and secure in my opinion. I give the rack itself a 5 star rating, but had to bump it down to 4 star because the locks just aren't that strong. The lock that secures the bikes to the rack has a plastic devise that the lock cylinder is housed in and the same plastic piece ratchets the arm down onto the bike. I can only imagine that if someone wants to give a good yank on this bike it is going to give. It allows me just enough sense of security to be able to stop at a gas station and go inside briefly, but not much more than that. Obviously no matter how strong the lock system is, I would not expect to leave it out overnight at say a hotel, but based on how strong the rest of the rack it, I am disapointed they could not have put a little more into the locks. Outside of that, this is a solid choice for a bike rack. 420331

This rack works as advertised ! I've had racks before,the kind that the bikes hang on....all the shack and rattle , use to worry about damage to bikes. With This rack however, no problem. Loads Easley and really secures the bikes well. As long as you lock every thing down like your instructed to do, this rack system is ideal for carrying your bike. Easy to install, really nice with the built in locks that come with it,and the ease of loading and unloading is nice too. If you want to ride down the road and not worry about. Your bike banging into each other, this platform system is the way to go. 99584

I bought this rack to replace a Thule 2 bike hanging rack. It was delivered in just a few days. All the small parts were in the package and the instructions were easy to understand. I put it together and installed it in about 45 minutes. You could probably do it faster ( I am a 70 year old grandmother). I loaded up 1 bike and drove 30 miles to a trail I like. The drive was great- the bike was stable- no movement. It took me a minute or two to figure out how to load the bike on the inner rack the first time- the second time was easier.(Note when you are unloading the bike, if you detach all straps and top hook, the bike will fall over- duh! I won"t make that mistake twice!!!) I have now loaded a second bike on- that was very easy.I am looking forward to the next trip with two bikes. I drive a Honda Civic.This rack is great for my car. I think the hanging racks may be better on a bigger car. This does not obstruct my view to the rear. The locking mechanism is another great feature. I was using a chain lock before. Not necessary now. VERY VERY HAPPY with this product. 135466

Purchased this to transport bikes on our 09' Saturn Vue. Possably some taillight/license plate obstruction but depends on closeness of vehicle behind. It could use washers to prevent the middle bar from having foward/back play. We did stratigically add reflecters for both stowed and transport positions since the rack basically blends with our car. Extremely easy to use and since there is allot of space between car & rack, you can remove the rear bike w/o disturbing the front bike and also open the car hatch w/o bike removal. Arrived slightly damaged with some gouches and paint scratches that appeared to be the result of bad packaging but touched up with some Rustoleum paint which we had on hand. This was our 3rd purchase from etrailer.com and will definately continue to purchase from them. The shipment came within a couple days and the email communication from them was fabulous and informative. 26891

The main reason I purchased this bike carrier was because of the design. Unlike bike racks, this carrier holds the bikes by the wheels and a locking arm that slides down over the bike's upper frame tube. I find this far superior to bike racks which you simply hang a bike on. The greatest benefit of this carrier is that no matter what kind of bike you have, and no matter what kind of frame design the bike has, it will fit on the carrier, AND sit perfectly level, rather then dangle at a strange angle, simply by the bike frame. This is the best way to secure your bike, in opinion. The carrier is also adjustable, for just about any bike wheelbase, as the holders for the wheels are adjustable. The fact that the wheels are supported and strapped down also means that they will not be able to sway while in transit. True, this carrier weighs a good amount more then most bike racks, but it is not that big of a deal, and I would rather have my bikes secure then loose to flop around on a rack. It's great that this carrier also has built in locks, so you don't need to buy anything else to keep your bike safe. This is a really great product and does exactly what I need it to do. There is plenty of space between the rear bumper/trunk area of my car, even with a bike on the carrier, so clearance and accessing the trunk is no problem. Bottom line - if you want to haul your bike(s) around and not worry about swaying during transportation, this is the best carrier you'll find. 18559

I really like this bike rack. Assembly and installation were a breeze and etrailer.com shipped it fast. All of the information on etrailer.com (videos, pics, reviews) were great in helping me decide what to get. I chose this rack because (for me) it had the best mix of features/quality/price. I like the fact that it comes with locks to lock the bike to the rack and also to lock the rack to the vehicle. However, as another reviewer pointed out, this rack can be manipulated to a point (depending on bike type, I suppose) to defeat the lock that secures the bike to the rack. Not a big deal, really... I'll just add a cable lock. I also had a bit of a problem with the lock cylinders and universal change key in that the change key would not go into 2 of the 3 lock cylinders, preventing installation of the cylinders into the rack. I contacted Thule directly and they sent replacement lock cylinders, which arrived in less than a week. All said, I am very happy with this rack. I also have an inexpensive hitch-mount hanging rack that is not very sturdy and difficult to load bikes onto. My bike and my daughter's bike have different frame designs and the Thule TH990XT (platform-style) easily accommodates both bikes. It is a breeze to load the bikes onto this rack and the bikes are secure after doing so (with the exception mentioned earlier that will require a cable lock for extended security). As for etrailer.com, I will definitely be a repeat customer. 135630

Bicycle Rack that Begs you to take your Bicycles! This is a great rack. It comes with 3 locks (hitch and bicycles), is easy to assemble, easy to configure for your bicycle, can secure bicycles in a matter of minutes. Previously, I have used a Hollywood and Saris bicycle rack that hangs off the trunk. The Saris rack is much better for securing the bicycle to the rack but you still have the fact that you are dependent on the hooks to the trunk that tend to move around once you put weight on the rack and are moving. Also, you still have to secure the wheels and the handle bars from moving with bungy cords or straps. With the Thule TH990HT after you assemble and make the initial wheel well adjustments to your rack, screw the supplied bolt to the trailer hitch, you lift your bicycle into the wheel wells, cinch the attached straps across the wheels and push down the bar which has foam padding as to not scratch your frame you are good to go. It takes all of 30 seconds and is very secure. Note: You do need to have a trailer hitch in order to use this rack. I think this is a much safer, easier way to load and secure your bicycle. I installed this on my 2010 Honda Accord. 4213


Comments

Hi, first of all, thanks for your nice review. A couple of questions for you though:1 What type of trailer hitch mount did you install on your Accord?2 Do you have any issues with bottoming out of the trailer hitch striking the road and potentially damaging the vehicle or hitch rack?

Received this carrier on Monday 9/28/15. It is a perfect fit! Special thanks to Karen for assisting us. We originally ordered a different carrier on line without speaking to anyone and our new TREK bikes did not fit. She assisted us in the return and also with the measurements, assured us this carrier would work. It is so easy to install and the bikes mount easily and fit securely. Fits both our 2015RAM2500 & 2009 Trailblazer. We are planning it use the carrier to enable us to ride the rails to trails in our area...THANKS AGAIN ..KAREN & ETRAILER!!!! 228312


Comments

We really like it, however, my bike needs to have an adapter bar on to turn it into a boys bike to fit. The frame holder does not go low enough to support my bike. Otherwise it works great. Everything moves smoothly. It should be noted we do not leave out in the weather. Even took it to Fla last winter and used it to both transport and store our bikes on.

I'm so glad we chose this Thule two-bike rack. It's very sturdy and well made (in the USA). We took it out on a test run of 100 miles this weekend through some unpaved and very bumpy small roads to our bike path, and it stood up to the test with flying colors! I also love the fact that it has a locks for the trailer hitch and for the vertical handles for the bikes already built in, which make them very handy and convenient. When not in use, it folds up very neatly against the back of our SUV. The customer service that I received from etrailer.com was also top notch. This item was back ordered, and they kept me informed through out the process. I highly recommend this product and the company. 228208

I am very pleased with the Thule Doubletrack I purchased from etrailer. I have only used it one time so far and it performed flawlessly. Assembly was pretty simple and the directions provided were easy to follow. I originally ordered a different bike rack from another manufacturer but it was back ordered. I received an e-mail from etrailer with details of the back order and expected ship date within just a couple days from when I ordered. Well, nothing is fast enough for me so I called etrailer's customer service and got through immediately since a direct phone number was in the e-mail. After reviewing some other bike racks over the phone with Erika (she's the best, thanks Erika) I was able to change my order over the phone and the order was promptly shipped and received within a couple days with their standard shipping. Their communication and customer service is second to none. I've already placed another order with them and will receive it tomorrow based on the tracking results I reviewed today. I would highly recommend etrailer to anyone. They have a great selection of quality products and very competitive prices. Thanks again to all involved in my purchase, especially Erika. It's good to know there are still outstanding American companies selling quality products and excellent customer service to back it up. 256070

This rack arrived in good condition in three business days, was quick and easy to assemble, and works as advertised. It fit very well as is on my 2008 Kia Sedona, with good road clearance. I took the time during assembly to tighten every nut, even the ones that were already on the unit. I had read that some people thought the rack moved a lot but I suspect that they need only tighten it up to reduce that substantially. The only time I have seen it move much is when I drive over rough RR tracks. It is VERY easy to put the bikes onto and with the built-in locks they are very secure with no extra effort or time. Other racks rely on your normal bike lock but that would mean scuffing or scraping the paint off the bikes from the movement during transport where this rack secures the bikes with paddedbars. With the rack under the wheels, the bikes are secure from damage from anything hitting underneath and the bikes cannot swing like they can on a hanging rack. The rack easily folds up when out riding so that it does not stick out from the vehicle. We have nice bikes and this rack keeps them that way, and is quick and easy to use. Excellent design and execution - thanks Thule - it seems rare that a product does such a good job! 34672

I'm disappointing in this rack because I have had issues with it melting. I have been using this rack to carry my mountain bike from Phoenix to my cabin in Pinetop, AZ. It's about a 3 hour drive and mainly uphill. I noticed on the first trip that one of the levers used to lock the wheel tray to the cross bar was lose. I didn't think much of it at first. On my second trip, I realized that the exhaust from the truck was blowing on the wheel tray and hold down latch. The heat caused the latch to melt and the wheel tray to warp. This rendered the inside rack useless. The tray and latch are about 2 feet from exhaust. I read many of the reviews and I didn't see any other issues with melting of the components. I guess I will just have to use this as a single bike rack. 100380

I read your review on the Double Track and wanted to follow up with you. We have not heard of this happening before with that much room, so thanks for letting us know.I have a replacement strap assembly and cam lever in the mail headed to you. You can set the cradle up with the latch for the strap and the cam lever on the other side of the cross bar. Like we have it setup in our first photo on our site or step 6 in the instructions. That way the latches and levers are not exposed.

Very easy to put together and assemble. Have used once so far and it was excellent. Holds the bikes firm. No marks on the frame with the padded top hooks. Also, on my 2013 Ford Escape, when folded and not in use, you don't even see it in the rear window, so unobstructed view in rear view mirror. 90949

We use it a lot and it is still performing perfect. You make a good product. We are just about to move to Tennessee from Minnesota, so we will get a chance to use it for over a thousand highway miles in two days. Should be an excellent test of its durability. Plan to bring two bikes back with us when we come back to Minnesota in September, so the rack will get another good test.

The bike rack is exactly what we wanted! We are "older" adults and need to think about ease of lifting the rack and a bike.....I like my back in the good shape it's in and work to keep it that way. Rack assembly was easy and it is easy to lift the bikes into the frame and secure them. Personally, I just hauled a single bike 250 miles and like the stability of the platform rake very much. The rack is well worth the money and the shipping/delivery service was outstanding. 227055

We sold our Volvo wagon for a VW Sportwagen and found our 2" hitch heavy bike rack could not be used on this smaller car that accepts only a Class 1, 1-1/4" hitch. (You can get a converter extension but that reduces allowable tongue weight to half (100 lbs) and our old rack without bikes weighed about 50 lbs). The trailer hitch installer said "don't do it, not safe," so decided to buy a new rack. The great folks at Etrailer suggested this rack and I tend to take their advice. It arrived quickly, is extremely well made and went together without effort. It is perfect for our needs. The Thule description says it is for standard bike wheels 20-29." But I have a weird English bike with an electric motor front hub and with 16" wheels. The bike folds up to a very compact package so I bought this rack really for my wife's standard road bike. Turns out my 16" wheeler (a Brompton) fits just fine. The hitch installer gave me good advice and this works out well 105289

Bike rack arrived with no packets of hardware!! Called e-trailer and an entire new package was sent. It arrived today and everything was there. The rack is on my car now. It took me a little longer than most people to assemble (judging from their reviews), but it was not difficult to do. Even though customer service could not just send hardware, everything worked out and the original box was returned via UPS. Customer service at e-trailer is first rate and I appreciate status updates and their helpfulness. 79795

Very nice bike carrier. Only criticism would be that I would like it if the wheel straps were just a bit longer. Hard to get them connected at first. I'm sure with time the holder will compress some to make it easier. Very happy with this product. 96505


Comments

After using this product for awhile, Im still very satisfied with it. When I stated earlier of a criticism, it was unfounded. There is a small block that is only really needed with small road tires. We ride with hybrids and a mountain bikes and the block made it hard to strap the bike in. Just remove or even reverse the block and all is well. Live and learn. Love the carrier.

I have a Thule 990XT hitch rack that I bought from ETrailer mounted on a 2005 Toyota Prius. This rack has worked well although I have lost a couple of levers that hold the wheel trays that fell off when the rack was in the up position (no bikes). You need to keep them tight even when not in use. I am particularly pleased by the clearance afforded my trunk which opens easily with two bikes mounted. I had a more serious problem perhaps unique to my Prius - the thin rear turn indicator lights are blocked by the rack in its up position, which led to a number of angry drivers honking at me and a couple of near collisions on the highway entering a lane that a driver two lanes over was also entering. I found that expert Mike L of Etrailer had posted a suggested fix of mounting the Rola LED light kit for cargo carriers on the rack and connecting it to the car with the Curt Wiring Harness. My mounting is a bit kludgy but durable and functional. In fact, the lights hang so that they operate in both the up and down position of the rack. Thanks to ETrailer for making this safety improvement possible. 307432

Works extremely well, exactly as advertised, for one or two bikes on both of our two-inch SUV hitches. Caveat -- the Thule packaged box arrived two days early from etrailer (!), but was missing the critical carrier-to-hitch locking bolt, and bike mount locks, and the two keys. (Obviously a Thule problem, not etrailer's). Called Thule customer service, very polite, was promised the hitch mechanism tomorrow, but, alas, the other locks and keys in a week. We do want the proper hitch deal, and if it arrives tomorrow or even Monday no problem. (I have a standard trailer bolt working ok temporarily in the slot.) As usual, the missing parts thing is frustrating, but a manufacturer's issue. If my company, I would have Xpressed the keys from wherever in Europe, with apologies. Otherwise, this review would be Xlnt -- etrailer service and follow up certainly so, and assembly was even simple enough for me (1) in an hour, with no experience, and provided tool. PS. We chose the slightly more costly Thule over the similar Yakima precisely because it HAD easy locks, and was so marketed as such. Thus frustration. 20530

Bought this bike rack four months ago and have been using it about once a week. Very pleased with the way it holds the bikes. I did not want one that only held the bikes by their upper tubes. I use Velcro straps to secure the foam tube to the bike tube. The fact that the rack came with locks was a plus..Really like the way the wheels are held in by the ratchet straps. Sturdy construction and fits my 2010 Tahoe well. However, because it sticks out so far from the back, I have added several silver reflectors on the back bike support bar. Also, I have concerns that the two bike wheels block my tail lights too much so that someone won't see me braking or turning. So, I have ordered TL21RK Optronics Magnetic Mount Towing Light Kit which comes tomorrow. Will mount these lights under the back bike support bar. Read that they can detach if I hit a big bump, so I am planning to strap them on with black electrical zip ties. This way no one should say they can't see my lights at night or turn signals. Cheap insurance if I avoid just one accident. Lights will still be high above the roadways. 245888

SINCE I SOLD MY TRUCK, MY PROBLEM WAS NOT BEING ABLE TO TRANSPORT OUR BIKES TO THE BEACH. AFTER SOME RESEARCH I FOUND THAT THE TH990XT WAS THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR OUR 2013 EQUINOX. WE ARE NOT DISAPPOINTED WITH OUR CHOICE. I BELIEVE THE TH990XT IS A UPPER END RACK AT A MODERATE PRICE,WELL WORTH IT.YOUR ON LINE SERVICE IS GREAT, NICE WEB SITE. THE RACK ARRIVED WITHIN 5 DAYS. NO PACKAGE PROBLEMS OR DAMAGE. THE FINAL ASSEMBLY TOOK LESS TIME THAN REMOVING THE RACK FROM THE SHIPPING BOX. DUE TO THE LOW BELT LINE OF THE EQUINOX I CAN SEE THE BIKES IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR, WHICH IS COMFORTING ON LONG DRIVES. THE BIKES ARE VERY STABLE AND SEEM QUITE SECURE TO THE TH990XT. UNFORTUNATELY WE CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH LOCKS THESE DAYS BUT COMMON SENSE ALWAYS PREVAILS. SO FAR, GREAT RACK. I WILL GIVE YOU AN UPDATE AFTER I SHAKE THE DUST OFF THE NEW RACK. AFTER ALL, THAT'S WHEN WE FIND OUT IF IT'S A "GUDIN". I 'VE BEEN IN COOPERATE SALES FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS. KEEP UP THE GREAT CUSTOMER APPROACH, IT WORKS EVERY TIME AND IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD. THANKS!

After reading many reviews on bike racks and going to several stores looking for a bike rack I decided on purchaceing the Thule model number TH990XT. I was very happy I did. First of all doing business with etrailer was great. Ordering on line was easy and following the tracking was kind of fun. I received the product on the time stated in excellent condition. Putting the product together was not difficult. I took my time and it took me about a half hour. The vehicle I put it on was a 2012 GMC Acadia. I have just used it once to take my wife's bike to the bike shop to have some work done on the bike. The bike rack cinched the bike down well, no problems. The things I like about the bike rack is its built well. It has some weight to it but not to heavy that would make it difficult to put on or take off. I like the three built in locks, one for each bike and one for the hitch, which gives some sence of security. I like that it was made in the U.S.A.. My wife and I like rideing our bikes at the beach so that will be what we will use the bike rack mostly for. 38353

I purchased a Thule 990 XT hitch mount bicycle carrier from etrailer on October 19th, 2017. As usual, the package arrived without incident and a day earlier then promised! Etrailers price was the lowest I could find, and shipping was included @ no additional cost. Assembly was fairly easy and the bike carrier mounted on my Ram 2500 without any problems. The carrier holds our 2 mountain bikes without any issues, and appears sturdy enough. The real test will be during our up-coming 2000 mile journey from Az to Ohio. However, I did have one problem with the product. The bolts included (square head carrier bolts) with the product are either aluminum, or a very low grade steel product. Three of the bolts either stripped, or lost couple of threads during the assembly process. The directions state to tighten the nuts securely, but not much effort was required to strip the bolt threads. When I get a chance, I will replace all of the bolts with grade 8 stainless steel bolts and nuts. Otherwise, this was another flawless purchase from etrailer! 446127

great customer service. shipping was much quicker than i anticipated. recieved email status updates regularly. the products was delivered to my door undamaged. unpacking and assembly took about 45 minutes with the supplied tools (very simple with good instructions). the quality of the carrier appears quite good. i purchased this to use on a chrysler 200 convertible which did pose one minor problem. the receiver for the hitch is recessed too far inward from the bumper and does not allow enough space to insert the carrier to the pin location. easily resolved by purchase of a reciever hitch extension at the local hardware store. getting the bikes on the carrier the first time was a little awkward, but after a couple of tries, it is very easy. bikes are stable on the carrier, and ground clearance is good, although i will be very careful around short steep driveways and large speed bumps. one excellent feature is that it will fold up while attached to the vehicle, this allows me to leave it on the car when parked in the garage. 32858

Very pleased with this bike rack. Easy to load and unload bikes onto with no difficulties. Bikes are very secure while driving vehicle. I have on a 2007 Subaru Forester and have not removed it all summer. When not in use rack flips up and down very easily to get into rear hatch of car with the click of a lever. Center support arm folds down easily also with the click of a lever. Sliding, locking hold down arms are padded and lock into place with key. A lady's bike does require a cross bar from handle bar post to seat post in order for arm to secure bike. No big deal at all. Wheel supports adjust and lock easily and hold wheels firmly. Bike cannot role back and forth at all. Rack secures to hitch with a threaded bolt and lock with key. Must have ratchet and socket to remove from hitch. One reason I leave on continuously, but also makes it more theft resistant I believe. Overall it's a great product and would recommend. Notice I used the word "easily" several times throughout this review. That's why I like it. 440795

We have truly enjoyed our purchase. Used to have the bike rack that hooked to the rear of the car, but always felt nervous because of the swaying, etc. Would NOT go far because of that. Our first trip with this product we went to Yosemite and it was wonderful. Very easy to assemble and a breeze to attach to the hitch. I did everything by myself that first time, not hard but very time consuming for one person making sure everything correct. Have gone out bike riding more often and just love this product. It is well made and very sturdy and tough. Everytime we go out we are confident nothing will happen. We especially love the locking mechanism on the rack for securing the bikes and was very grateful our model included the hitch lock, this way we are not worried the rack will be stolen while not in use but still attached to hitch. We go out several times a year camping and love the easy breezy way of taking our bikes. We love this product and highly recommend it to everyone. 388257

I have only the highest regard for etrailer.com. Dealing with them is a real pleasure. The hitch can be assembled very easily with the enclosed directions. It will perform its duty of hauling 2 bicycles to and fro, and I am very happy about that. I was hoping that the rear hatch of the Honda CRV could be opened without removing the bicycles, which is very unhandy. If it were not for this unfortunate oversight, I would have rated it a 5 star. 126052

How much play is there in the bike rack on a CRV? Im thinking of gettein a 2 hitch, and therefore would have to use the 2 - 1-1/4 adapter.

I have a 1-1/4 hitch. I also questioned if it was strong enough to support 2 bicycles. We have light weight Trek Hybrid bikes, and there is no problem with movement going down the highway. I do not need the adapter for my hitch. I will mention that you cannot open the rear door on CRV when bicycles are loaded. That is my only complaint. Hope this helps you.

Looks to be a great product though I've not had the opportunity to use it yet. From opening the box to complete installation took me 30 minutes. Only one minor complaint. I can't open my tailgate on my Honda Element with the rack on. Before purchasing the rack I tried to locate a video on your website that showed a Honda Element with this bike rack and the tailgate open but could not find one. Over-all though I'm pleased with it. 67394

I like my Thule bike rack a lot. My only disappointment was that one of the caps on the end of one of the tubes came off almost immediately while driving which now allows moisture inside the tube, I know it means eventually itll rust. Its the biggest tube, that when the rack is lowered to accept bikes, faces backwards from the hitch - the main tube. Other than that Im happy!I can anticipate needing replacement parts at some point and Im sure Ill be looking on the website to order them!Thanks for following up!

Thanks for taking the time to follow up with us. We have replacement caps available for the end of the shank. The backbone tube of the rack that all the other parts attach to. It is part 853-7484, item S in the instruction set on the DoubleTrack. If you have any questions, give me a shout.

This is an excellent bike carrier. Shipped either same day as ordered, or at least next day. Received with standard shipping in about 4 days. Assembly was a breeze. Very happy with the service and communications with etrailer.com and the actual product. 91006

I dont use the carrier a lot, but it is very easy to use. Once you have it set up to fit your bikes, it is very quick operation to load and lock the bikes. This is a great bike carrier.

I can't enough great things about etrailer or Thule. The reviews and videos on the etrailer website helped me see how the rack fit and worked before I had to buy it. The rack shipped the same day I bought it and arrived in perfect shape. My wife and I assembled it on the floor of our family room in about 15 minutes. It took less than 5 minutes to install it on my Tundra. Then we drove to our LBS and picked up the Electra Ballon 8i bikes we had ordered. Since I had watched the video a couple of times it only took a few minutes to load both bikes. The rack was very stable on the way home and caused no worry. I read a couple of reviews where people said the locking arms of the rack were affecting the finish on their bikes. To avoid this I bought some 1 1/2" styrofoam pipe covers and covered the spots on the frames of my bikes where the locking arms fit over the bike frame. The has stopped my frame from being scratched. 163634

Ordered the rack on Wednesday afternoon and received it Thursday Morning so that part is great. Assembly went smoothly and probably would have been better had I used the hitch receiver to start with instead of putting everything together on the floor (it was cold outside so did everything inside). Even on the floor everything went together very easily. Was a little concerned about the main shaft being 1 1/4 rather than 2 inches. After installing I loaded 2 bikes and took it out for a test drive and seems very solid. Adjustments to load the bike were easy and the directions were excellent both for the assembly and the adjustments and loading of the bike. Anti-Rattle bolts work great and having locks on the rack for the hitch and the bikes means I won't have to worry much about theft. Had I had the rack for a longer time I feel I probably would have given it 5 stars but just haven't used it enough at this time. 492406

Delivery was great, no negatives for etrailer.com. is great and serves its purpose well. Locking washers and bolts varied from product list, but not so much that one could not understand the substitutions. I laid all the parts out to the provided chart and it was obvious which pieces were substituted. All substitute parts are acceptable, but it is a little troubling when one is going by a part chart and there are substitutions. No product problems, just a mild unexpected. I drove with the new trailer hitch and bike rack loaded with my Kestrel 4000 and had no problems. Easy loading. Trunk access with the rack in place. I would submit that reflective tape be added to the rack for when it is on the car but folded for non-use as well as the outer rack bottom. I will do this myself, but it would be nice for it to be in place upon purchase. Obviously, a minor critique, but a worthy addition. 34133

Product is great, solid, works perfectly for my Honda Accord sedan, but I know it work work equally well on a crossover or SUV. I debated between several different hitches and settled on this one for the locks. I know that ultimately a determined thief can steal anything, but if you can deter, that works most of the time. I feel secure that I could go biking and then eat dinner at a cafe and not worry about it. Most importantly, I never worry about it coming loose on the highway. It is easy to assemble and to use. I also ordered a Thule cable lock (6ft -- but I wish it was longer). You can order locks so that the three locks on this and the cable all use the same key. Etrailer communicated well throughout the process and even sent me my item faster than expected. Great service. I would buy this product again and I have already shopped again at etrailer.com. Great experience. 53254

Having good luck with Thule products in the past I purchase this to haul both a traditional bike and a very short wheelbase recumbent, each with fenders. I liked the stability of a platform, locking hook method (no cable) to secure bikes and to allow my fenders Also liked the simplicity of the rack operation and ratcheting wheel retainers . Happy with the product and etrailer support (Emily H.) who helped straighten out an earlier order issue to make things right. Warning: The lever locking method for the wheel bases work very well but you have to remember to clamp them down or you will lose the lever, bolt, and barrel nut. The Thule supplied bolts had only enough length to work but not enough extra to retain the assembly if you leave unclamped. I replaced all clamp bolts with longer ones to correct this. Also changed some less expensive nuts with Nylocks. 449551

Solid bike rack. I'm just as happy with this as with my T2. Thule provided all necessary tools for installation (including a bottle opener!), and two lock cores. I had some trepidation about the utility of the platform nearest to the trunk, but this proved to be a non-issue; mounting bikes in either position is a breeze. The hinge mechanism came a little loose from Thule, making the whole rack wobble a bit right and left, but tightening it up fixed that issue in a snap - it looks like it probably stopped a lot of the frame rub that this style of rack is known for as well. I recommend putting a cloth under the foam to mitigate possible frame damage on metal framed bikes. Works well with my 29er, my 700c, my 50s cruiser, and my kid's bike. The wheel chocks are quick and easy to move and accommodate most frame sizes, though I am curious to see how long the plastic cams last. 189098

  • Adapter Recommendation for Fitting Step Through Bike Frame on Thule DoubleTrack Bike Rack
  • A bike frame adapter bar like the part # UB01 attaches to the steering stem and to the seat post of the bike giving the arm of the Thule DoubleTrack part # TH990XT a secure place to grab on to. I attached a review video for this adapter for you to check out as well.

  • Can I Use An Old Style Road Bike With Fenders On A Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack
  • For bikes with fenders there really isn't a way to use a bike rack like the Kuat Transfer part # TS02G that uses wheel mounts. Instead you'd have to go with a bike rack that grabs the bike by the frame like the Thule DoubleTrack # TH990XT. This is a very nice rack that's about the same price that will work well for you. It's similar in weight too at 36 lb.

  • Thule Doubletrack # TH990XT vs. Swagman Chinook # S64683
  • The real benefits that you get from the Thule Doubletrack # TH990XT is that it weighs 36 lbs, it is made right here in the USA, and the trays are a little more customizable since they are on their own "tracks". If you don't mind the extra 11 lbs of the Swagman Chinook # S64683 and you are able to utilize the wheel trays just fine (which typically isn't a problem) then I recommend the Chinook. It is at a lower price point, comes with everything that the Doubletrack does, has the higher...

  • I am happy to help you make your choice between the two excellent platform bike racks you mentioned, the Swagman Chinook # S64683 and the Thule Doubletrack # TH990XT. Where the Swagman Chinook wins the comparison is in weight capacity (45-lbs per bike vs. 35-lbs for the Thule) and long wheelbase compatibility (up to 50-inches vs. 46-1/2 for the Thule). The Thule weighs about 10-lbs less and is USA-made while the Swagman is heavier and is made offshore. The two carriers are otherwise...

The linked article explains how to tell which type of hitch you have. If you have a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch you can carry only 2 bikes, and you will want to be sure to select a Class I rack.

  • Comparing Thule T2 and Thule DoubleTrack Bike Racks
  • The really big difference between the Thule T2 Classic part # ETTHT2C-2 and the Thule DoubleTrack # TH990XT is how the rack attaches to the bikes. The T2 attaches by grabbing the bikes at the tire and the Doubletrack grabs the frame. The advantage to a tire mount is that the frame doesn't get touched. This is especially helpful if the frame is made of carbon or has an expensive paint job you don't want to touch. The advantage the frame mount has is less cost and if the bikes have fenders...

  • Should Hitch Bike Rack be Removed When Going Through Car Wash
  • With the Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Hitch Mount # TH990XT or any other accessory, it is recommended to remove the carrier prior to going through a car wash. The manufacturer's warranty will not cover any damages incurred if you have the bike carrier installed while using an automated car wash. If it's a touchless car wash the risk is lower, but if it's a car wash with brushes then the risk is very high something would happen.
