EXCELLENT BIKE RACK! As an avid cyclist I have several rack variations. Thule roof racks for both SUV’s, a Yakima Heavy Duty 4-bike rack for a hitch and now the Thule Helium: by far my favorite rack. Easy to use, light weight, compact… LOVE IT! Installation and removal are a breeze and the locking features are great. Difficult to use with kids or women’s bikes, but incredibly convenient and perfect for small cars.

Bike Carrier The bike carrier is very light weight and easy to use! I would recommend it! When not in use, it doesn’t take up much room to store it.

Thule 9042 Helium Aero 2 Bike Hitch Carrier Works great! Fits the 2 inch reciever very well. Transports the bikes securely! If you use the strap that goes through the wheels and around the back of the verticle support, it turns the bikes and bike carrier into virtually a single unit. Very stable and easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone!
