Thule Rear Mounted Rack Not for the Car-Loving Cyclist
on May 27, 2011
Thule's 9001 Raceway Rear Mounted Bike Rack is an innovative, effective product when it comes to mounting bikes securely to a vehicle. This benefit, however, comes at the cost of damaging your vehicle. The rack rests on either the rear lip or trunk of most make and model vehicles, but the cushioning is not sufficient to prevent DENTS IN THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE. I'm still trying to work out this issue with Thule, and I anticipate they will pin the blame on operator error. However, I am a cycling and automotive enthusiast who always carefully follows directions.
Thule's bike rack is, indeed, impressive, but it's a "no go" if you love your car more than a bike rack.
