Review of the Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Racks on a 2019 Toyota Sequoia


This is the Thule Hitching Post Pro, the most popular bike rack on our website. And this is a 2019 Toyota Sequoia. I think it's gonna be a pretty good option, and there's a reason why it is pretty popular. One, just because it's a very entry level rack. We can get four bikes on here. This isn't gonna be great for your carbon fiber bikes, just because it does have frame contact.

So, you're gonna want to use non-carbon frame bikes. And also with the heavier bikes that you may have, 35 pounds is gonna be the max for this rack specifically. So look at how it integrates with the bikes. So we're gonna have three tie-down points, we're gonna have two up top, and then one right here. The one right here is gonna be the anti-sway cradle, which, that's just gonna help prevent some of this movement.

So whenever you're starting and stopping, your bikes aren't clamping together. So, it's pretty easy to take these off. It's gonna protect your bikes, because it has a soft yet durable rubber strap. We've been using this bike rack for years and it's still holding up. I think that's another reason why it's so popular.

So all you gotta do is just go like that. And then we'll do the anti-sway cradle down at the bottom. And then we can take this off the rack. Looking closer at the cradles, they're pretty close together. So let's just take a measurement here just from center to center.

It's roughly about five inches apart. So, you're gonna wanna offset your bikes. And when it comes to the spread in between these, some of the smaller bikes, like the kiddos bikes, typically you have a little bit of trouble just because it is so wide. It's about 11 inches. So you might want to get one of those adapter bars. So, for your step-through bikes and your kiddo's bikes, it basically just goes from your seat to your handlebars and that'll give you a point to tie this down. But looking a little bit closer at the cradles, typically we see a bunch of cables for your brakes and stuff. So that's why we have these little indentions right here. The indentions is just gonna leave a little bit of space so they're not just smashing up against your frame. So, with anything that we put in the hitch, we're gonna add a little bit of length to the end of our Sequoia. So let's take a measurement from our bumper to the very end, I'd say it's roughly around 41 inches. But we can tilt this down. So there's gonna be a little pin here. It is connected, I lose things a lot so it's nice that I can just take it off, pull it out, and just let it hang so I don't have to worry about keeping track of it. And once we put it down like this, we just put it back in that hole and then clip it into place. Just like that. That'll bring our length down a little bit. So, that's about 19 inches. So that's a pretty significant amount of distance that we cut off. That's gonna be nice. If you just wanna keep this thing in your hitch, whenever you're not using your bikes. It's also gonna tilt away. So we have a back hatch here on the Sequoia, another same exact pin, same connected little pin there. Tilts all the way down. So you will be able to access the back. We checked it before. Let me go ahead and just unlock it real quick, but we checked it and it does clear. So you don't have to worry about not being able to access some of your stuff, but you do have to have the bikes off. Opens fully so you can still use the hatch the way you did before. It's gonna tilt up like this, and just replace that pin, and we're good to go. Where this pin connects to the rack, if you come a little bit closer, you'll see there's gonna be a little loop right here. You can use your bike cables, it does not come with one. So we have a bunch of 'em, and you can use this loop to tie your bikes to the rack so they don't go missing if you're traveling a lot. And then moving down to our shank here, we're using on a two inch hitch receiver, but you can take this little sleeve off so it'll work with the inch and a quarter as well. Doesn't really matter what kind of hitch you have, whether it's a two or an inch and a quarter, it's gonna work. And let's go over ground clearance. This Sequoia is pretty much built for over landing and going off road. We have 22 inches of ground clearance, which is pretty good. And it sits out about 15 inches from the hitch pin hole. So that's not a lot of distance and that's a lot of distance to the ground. So even if you do wanna take this thing off road, I think it's gonna give you ample clearance. It does have an anti-rattle bolt, which you can see a little bit of play, but that's just the joint right down here. But this thing is absolutely solid on here. So your bikes aren't gonna feel it. And it's just gonna prolong the life of the shank and all the components. All in all, there's a reason why this thing is so popular on our site, is just a really great way to get something in your hitch so you can get your bikes to wherever you want to go. And that's pretty much it for a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro on our 2019 Toyota Sequoia. This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom. This shows side to side action, such as turning corners, or evasive maneuvering. Then, onto our alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris, or even uneven pavement. Last of all, the solid speed bumps. This shows up and down action, such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage, or driving in and out of a driveway..
