The Thule 916 T2 Bike Rack is a great solution for those who want to carry their bikes with a rack that does not make contact with the bike frame. The way this works is that you set your bike in wheel trays and there is an arm that grabs down on the front wheel in front of the bike fork. The boke rack will carry 2 bikes or you can add-on the Thule 918 Add-On to carry a total of 4 bikes.
You can add some theft prevention security to the rack by adding lock cores into the arms which will then lock down onto the tires they are holding. You also have the option of adding Thules STL2 lock, which locks the bike rack to your vehicles hitch. The THule 916 T2 is designed to work with vehicles that have a Class III – 2 ” hitch receiver, however the Thule 917 T2 will work fo Class II- 1 1/4″ hitches. The 917 T2 will carry a total of 2 bikes and does not have the add-on option. Visit Rackattack.com for more info.
