I bought this a few weeks ago. It is a quality made carrier. When I drive with my bike on the rack I am confined everything will be fine.

5.0Perfect single bike rack.
I have a Jeep Wrangler and a 29r specialized MTB. Drove it 90 miles on highway up to 85 mph and on dirt roads with rocks and roots, at no point did this bike rack ever give the appearance it would fall off or that it would release the bike. I don’t know how anyone’s tire could fall out of the basket the way some reviews stated, which had me worried when I bought this, it’s practically impossible. The rack is light and easy to remove (which you’ll need to do if you have a Jeep). The bike fit like a glove and was very secure. I also added an 8 inch extender to get around my wheel, a must for Jeep owners. This is well built and very easy to set up, an easy recommendation.
Best rack available, Great valué and Easy to set up

2.0Nice design except for the front tire securing
Great design and product except for the front tire basket. Despite securing the bike correctly, had my front tire jump out and hence handle twisting and falling towards my vehicle after hitting a small bump. This could have easily been the end of my custom road bike. Not sure if I want to take another chance with this rack.

2.0Questionable build quality
Rack overall is nice and performs as a mid range carrier, acceptably so. Happy with the functionality overall. However some definite quality and manufacturing issues. First, when I took the main part of the carrier out of the box, one of the plastic covers on the side of the drop down mechanism fell off. Upon closer inspection, three small balls I screws hold it on, and one was missing with obvious marks where someone tried to install it at the factory in the wrong spot. Luckily I found the screw rolling around inside and managed to fix it. Second issue was that the screw they supplied to attached the grab handle is very weak. The head sheared off with very light force. I suppose the handle will still hold with the threaded rod still in place, but no removing the handle now without drilling it out or cutting it off.
5.0Sturdy & Reliable
I purchased this Thule bike rack one year ago. I am absolutely delighted with it! It's strong and sturdy. I have never felt so confident that my mountain bike is held securely. When mounting my road bike (with skinny tires) on the Thule, I place a small towel around the front wheel so that it's not "floating" around inside its curved basket. Overall, this rack deserves a top recommendation.

3.0Great except for lock
I like the rack for the most part, but ...it only took a cheap pair of bolt cutters and a few seconds for someone to cut the cable and steal my bike. And it costs quite a bit to replace the arm unit that has the integrated lock, so if you buy this, don't rely on that lock, it is useless.
