Thule has never let me down and still holds the standard. This rack is solid, stable, and secure. Easy to assemble. Love the locks on the clamps - i don't see how a thief could get my bikes or the whole rack. So much easier loading and securing especially after a long ride when I am already tired. A short lift and clamp it down with no worries about my partner's bike scratching up mine. Since some of my bikes have fenders, I chose the rack that clamps onto the top tube - and these clamps even adjust to slants.
Two heavier trail bikes even traveled safely - no wheels spinning in the air or rack bobbing up and down. There is some side to side bobble on rougher roads and I wish Thule would design a support washer/nut for the other side of the hitch bolt. The adapter for a 2" is good but does allow a little play in the movement while traveling.
This rack is going to last me for a long time!!

I bouth this rack 2 years ego and i am happy with it!! your bike will safe on this rack!!
It appears so, this rack looks perfect. This rack, like most bike racks, has a 35lbs per bike capacity. This rack allows bicycles with fenders, which is good. 29" wheel diameter capacity. most townie bikes I found online are about 27". The clamps swivel and are height adjustable, which is good for the top tubes on the townie bikes. Here's a link of a YT video where the gentleman has this rack (he clamps to bottom tube, I would clamp onto top tube). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x6g6UvxI-8 Thanks for checking us out.
