Bike Rack Recommendations for Carrying a Single and Tandem Bikes on a 2008 Toyota Prius


I have a 2008 Prius. Will this rack fit and could I carry a Tandem bicycle and 2 single bikes. Thanks

I checked with Thule and the Thule Raceway 3 Bike Carrier # TH9002PRO is confirmed to fit your 2008 Toyota Prius. The biggest limiting factor for whether or not you could carry your tandem bike plus your 2 other bikes will be the weight of your bikes and the length of your tandem bike.

The weight limit for this rack is 105 pounds, which I believe you would pretty easily exceed with your tandem bike plus your other two bikes.

What you could do is put your two bikes on the # TH9002PRO, and then put a roof rack on your Prius and then use a Thule Tandem Roof Mounted Bike Rack # TH558P to carry your tandem bike.

I attached a link that shows all of the different roof racks that are available for your vehicle. You will want to select which model you have from the drop down menu and all of the available roof racks for your vehicles will be listed.

I attached installation instructions and a review video for the # TH9002PRO for you to check out also.
