Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2005 Toyota Prius


2005 Toyota Prius. Which rack would you recommend?


Expert Reply:

I would recommend the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Carrier, # TH9001PRO, for your 2005 Prius. This is the easiest to mount and remove rack that I have personally used, and it folds compact for storage, see video link.

I would normally recommend a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack, but for the Prius a hitch would add weight to the vehicle when not carrying bikes and the vehicle owners manual normally precludes towing as an option with these vehicles.

If you will be carrying womens bikes or bikes with a frame that does not have a straight frame for the bike rack arms, you would need to add the Bike Adapter Bar, # TH982XT, for each bike with this style frame.
