Review of the Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Racks on a 2022 Toyota Tundra


Hi, everyone. Aidan here at etrailer.com. And today, we're taking a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro on our 2022 Toyota Tundra. The Hitching Post Pro is a hanging style bike rack that holds the bike by the frame up here. We've got two straps over top to keep it held in these deep cradles as well as a third one around the seatpost here to limit that side to side movement and help with bike to bike contact. I will say it's not perfect and really, no sway cradle is.

They're all gonna have some movement, no matter what bike rack you end up looking at but it will definitely help. And I do think that these cradles do a better job than other hanging style racks at holding the bike because they are so deep with those grooves for our brake cables, so nothing gets pinched. So, I do like that. Otherwise, we can get the bike unloaded here. Just pull that strap off of those tabs all around.

And then you can just lift the bike up and away from the rack and then set it to this side. Because it's hanging style, we do wanna avoid a couple things. Carbon frame bikes are not gonna be good on here because you can damage that frame. And alternative frame bikes and kids bikes probably will need a bike adapter bar in order to hang properly or just to fit over the arms at all. Aside from that, there's a 35 pound weight capacity per bike.

So, just make sure you're not overloading the rack whenever you do load it up or you're picking it out for your bikes. I always like to replace these straps just so they're out of the way. And we can actually check out one of the features here, which is the tilting. Down near the bottom, we've got a retaining pin and clip, or a clip, and a pin and retaining clip, sorry. And by removing that, we can tilt the whole rack away and gain full access to our truck bed.

So if we need to get something out the back, we can. Or if we just need a place to sit and change our shoes before or after a ride, we can do that too. We just have to make sure we get the bikes unloaded first because you can see, with how far it tilts, we will be hitting the ground if we did leave the bikes on. I can go ahead and lift this back up and resecure that pin and clip. And from there let's get some measurements. The biggest one is gonna be how far it sticks out from the back of your Tundra. And right about there, we're gonna be adding 41 inches. It does stick out a fair bit on an already long vehicle. But if we wanna leave this in the hitch between rides and we don't have bikes loaded up, we can fold the arms down. Just undo that pin and clip at the top, fold the arms down, reinsert it through the newly aligned holes and secure it. So, it's gonna condense this whole bike rack down to only stick out 17 inches now. So, it's a lot less obtrusive on your truck if you wanna leave it here between rides. That way, it's ready to go. Just fold the arms up and load up whenever it is time to ride again. As far as ground clearance goes, at the back end here, we're working with 17 inches of clearance. It just comes straight out of the shank or the hitch of your truck. So, that's what you're working with. I don't think you'll have any concerns there and it should hold the bikes plenty high. At the hitch, it is gonna be working with our two-inch by two-inch receiver tube, using that included adapter sleeve. And if you we're to remove that, it would work with an inch and a quarter hitch. So, if you have another vehicle that has one of those, you can use this bike rack on both vehicles. It comes with an anti-rattle bolt to keep things secure in the hitch. I would recommend upgrading to a locking anti-rattle bolt just so it's safe there. And maybe even pairing it up with a cable lock that can loop through this loop right here to lock your bikes up too. Otherwise, I think it's a pretty good bike rack. It's definitely basic but it has all the necessary features like that tilting and folding arms. So, if you don't wanna go with a different option like a tailgate pad and have your bikes draped over the tailgate, this is a great basic option that's gonna get your bikes to where they need to go. Thanks for watching. Announcer 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..
