Thule Raceway Trunk Bike Rack Customer Reviews

First, there was the wheel. Then came sliced bread. Now, there's the Thule Raceway Trunk Bike Rack, the greatest thing to happen since, well, sliced bread.
What sets the Thule Raceway Bike Rack apart is its revolutionary new fastening system. Four ratcheting Sure-Tight cables grab hold of your ride, providing a firm foundation. Then, you simply snug the cables down with a twist of the FitDial for a perfect fit. Plus, the Raceway's thick, molded rubber pads grip your ride and deliver extra hold. Together, this system keeps your Thule Raceway fused to your trunk, so you never have to keep an an eye on your rear view mirror worrying that your trunk bike rack might bounce off off.
And, you never have to fret about your bikes banging, bumping and rubbing into your trunk because the Thule Raceway is equipped with anti-sway cages. These two-stage cages connect to both your top tube and seat tube for rock-solid stability. For serious security, the Raceway includes a lockable cable to protect your two-wheelers from bicycle bandits. What's more, your Trunk Bike Rack comes in either a 2- or 3-bike configuration. Both are built in the USA and include a Lifetime Warranty.

This rack is fairly easy to mount, once you get used to having to open and close the trunk in the process with a heavy rack on top that hasn't been secured yet, a significant design flaw. Once the bottom cables are under the trunk lid, however, the top and bottom cables tighten easily with the turn of four knobs for a secure fit and stable transport. Once the bikes are loaded and secured, they just don't move.

This bike rack is light and easy to install. It works great for my Honda Accord 2000. However, you need to purchase the Thule Frame adapter for bikes without the horizontal bar. Else rack will not work with your bike.

An absolutely fabulous bike rack!:) I was in need of a carrier system that would accommodate my car size and have a locking system. The Thule Raceway serves those requirements and more! It is extremely easy to handle, convenient, takes 5 minutes to attach or remove. Nothing negative to say. I do have to open the trunk with a key, because the weight of the bike rack doesn't allow the latch to release. But that is no big deal.:)......what did we do before automatic latch release? :):)

I bought this rate specifically since it said it would fit a Lexus RX. It does not. The upper clips does not fit into the upper edge. I have used it on my wife's Subaru and it worked really well. But unfortunately that wasn't the target car. :(

So far i'm very happy with this rack! Its very sturdy and secure, i've taken it on the interstate once, and my bike was not bouncing around at all, I had no worries about my bike slipping off like i've had with much cheaper racks. Its expensive, but worth what you pay!

I shopped a few weeks before settling on this rack since it was going on my brand new car. I wanted an easy on/ off rack that would have a good solid fit and leave no marks or evidence it had ever been on my car once taken off. This rack fits my needs perfectly. I have had this rack for 6 months and it was on my car everyday for at least 4 months of the 6. Traveling to and from work 80 miles each day with and without the bike this rack held up perfect. I highly recommend this bike rack.

This is a very well designed bike rack. I put it on my new BMW 328i and no problems.. My only complaint is that you must open the trunk to install the lower hooks. It is also a bit heavy.
