The Thule 2 Bike Platform Hitch Rack is an interesting little piece that doesn’t seem to be able to do much, but is amazingly functional and versatile. It comes at a rather steep price, but it doesn’t get any better than this in terms of a Thule bike rack. All the company’s knowledge in designing bike racks goes into this model as it is high-quality as it can get. The ultra-compact holder with integrated cable lock secures up to two bikes without making frame contact. The hitch Switch TM lever folds and stores platform when idle or tilts down for easy rear vehicle access. A reinforced tray provides maximum strength and rust-free protection. The adjustable wheel strap quickly and easily secures the backwheel to the tray. This Thule bike rack is compatible with all 20 to 29-inch wheel diameter bicycles with up to 3-inch wide tires. In addition it is easy to assemble and with the extra option for customization.
The Thule 990XT Doubletrack 2-Bike Hitch Mount Carrier is a functional 2-bike holder with reinforced wheel trays that serve as platform to eliminate bike-to-bike contact. The wheel trays slide independently along platforms to minimize bike contact. A hitch switch lever folds and stores platform when not in use. Bikes are transported via vehicle’s 1-¼ -inch or 2-inch receivers. This Thule bike rack is easy to assemble and mount, built with the main focus of transporting a bicycle without any damage to the frame. The system benefits from a sturdy bike mounting method, thus minimizing movement. Another advantage of this model is that it works well with non-standard bike frames.
