Thule T2 2-Bike Platform Hitch Rack
The Thule T2 2-Bike holds your bike on a trailer hitch mounted platform that requires minimal amount of bike-lifting. The SecureHook holds bike securely by the front wheel while an adjustable strap secures the back wheel to the reinforced tray making it easy to load and unload your bike. Hitch Switch lever folds for rear of the vehicle access.
This is a solid rack. It is built from thick-walled steel, and the weight of it shows. However, like anything that mounts in a 2" receiver, the whole thing wobbles around a bit. But then there are the plastic ratcheting mechanisms. There has got to be a better way to do this, but this design has withstood for years. Pros: Ease and speed with which a bike is secured. Solid overall build. Built-in lock cables. Bikes are very secure. Plastic parts seem fairly UV-resistant (used for a year, and keep it folded up on the car most of the time...in Arizona.) Cons: Plastic parts. Only comes with 3 lock cylinders but 5 holes to fill...and if you want them all keyed the same, you have to buy a 6-pack of cyclinders for $$$ and toss the 3 you have - I'd rather pay twenty extra bucks for 2 more originally. Overall a nice rack.
