Review of the Thule Hitching-Post-Pro Hitch-Bike Racks on a 2014 Honda Odyssey


Today on our 2014 Honda Odyssey, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Hitching Post Pro. This is a folding and tilting 4 bike rack designed for use in 1 1/4 and 2 inch hitches. It's part number is TH934XTR. To begin our test fit, we're going to slide the shank of the bike rack right into the receiver tube of our hitch. As we do this, we'll want to line up the threaded hole in the shank of the rack with the pin hole in the receiver tube of the hitch. With those lined up, we're going to take our anti-rattle bolt, and thread that in. We can then use our wrench to tighten that down.

The bike rack's going to offer us about 9 inches worth of ground clearance. At it's closest point the rack's going to be about 4 inches and overall we've added about 12 3/4 of an inch to the length of our van. At the base of our center mast, we've got a golden pin and clip. Pulling that allows us to tilt the mast of the rack away from our vehicle. As you can see, gives us full access into our cargo area. We'll bring the mast back into it's upright position and we're going to reinsert the pin to hold it in place.

We'll then move to the top of the mast and we're going to pull the second gold pin and clip. That allows us to swing out our dual cradle arms. We'll reinsert the pin in the new hole here to secure them in that position and let's get another overall measurement. It looks like in this position, we've added about 33 1/4 inches to the length of our Odyssey. We'll now prepare to load our bike by undoing our cradle straps. We'll grab our bike, place it right into our cradles and we'll go around and secure it with the three straps that we've just undone.

Just like that, our bike's loaded up and we're ready to hit the road. We'll take it out and let you see what it looks like going through our slalom course, our alternating bumps and our straight bumps. That will complete today's test fit of the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part number TH934XTR on our 2014 Honda Odyssey. Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering.

Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or a pothole or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage or driveway. .
