Comments about Thule Thule T2 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack:
2 inch receiver model.Easy to assemble took 10 minutes max. When assembling the rack I was concerned about the self threading bolts used to secure the wheel trays. There was no washer and the bolt head is only slightly larger than the pre-drilled hole in the rack tube. Time will tell on this one as it is a wear and tear concern.Easy to use ... mounting is just like the videos ... 10 - 20 seconds depending on your dexterity threading the straps though the spokes.No issues with handlebars, pedals, or frames on my bikes.Rock solid on the road with Thule locking hitch bolt.Plenty of space between the folded rack and the back of my 2003 GMC Envoy XL or my '96 Grand Caravan.Plenty of ground clearance so far ... just driveways and ferry ramps. Have not had it in any off road scenarios.Fold down for liftgate entry feature does not work in my scenarios ... handlebar configurations of non-road bikes have clearance issuses. Can get the liftgate past the pedals (by about 1/4 inch) but not the handlebars. Luckily my Envoy also has a rear window hatch that has plenty of clearance even without folding the loaded hitch down. This rack EXTENDS well beyond the bumper and with the added T2 2 Bike Extension it is over 4 feet. This might be a concern for sightlines especially from the sides in parking areas. There are no safety reflectors included in the packages (Rack or Extension) so I bought some red and white reflective tape and strategically located it on the rear and side edges of the extended rack. I also picked up a set of magnet-mount tail lights [...] placed them on the outermost rack rail. I just don't trust the tailgating drivers these days and the bikes do slightly obscure the vehicle tail lights.Heavy ... OK for me and easy to mount in folded up position ... but my wife is 5'1" 108 and not able to handle the mass.
