Is It Possible to Fit Four Bikes on a Thule Apex TH9025XT  


Do you have any pics or videos showing the Thule TH9029XT loaded with 4 bikes? Seems there are several reviews that question whether 4 bikes will fit. I am hesitant to buy until i have confidence that 4 mountain bikes 2 womens and 2 mens will fit.

If you take a look at the photo I've provided as well as the video I've linked, you can see that it is indeed possible to fit four bikes on the Thule Apex, part # TH9025XT.

In my experience, and by talking with my Thule representative, it is easier to get four road bikes to fit on the rack than mountain bikes. It is possible to get four mountain bikes on a 4 bike rack, but it's a tight squeeze. On any bike rack you will have to index the pedals or make other adjustments when loading the bikes, the Apex # TH9025XT is no exception, when mounting them. Alternating the direction that each bike faces is important, as well.

So they'll be carried level, you'll want to use a frame adapter bar like part # 64005 for the women's bikes. The bar will span the distance between the seat post and the handlebar gooseneck, providing a level attachment point for the bike rack.
