You’ve already ridden every trail within biking distance of your house. It’s time to venture out beyond your zip code and pedal over roads, paths and boardwalks unknown. There’s just one rub: how are you going to cram your cycle in the backseat of your subcompact coupe without a roof rack or trailer hitch? Simple—slip on the Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack.
The Thule Gateway may be Thule’s mid-range trunk-mount bike rack, but it’s still equipped with top-shelf components for a fast, stable fit. Its tall arching arms deliver greater clearance to work with aggressive spoilers. And, a few twists of the FitDial with Quick-Fit lever is all it takes to tighten the heavy-duty nylon straps for a snug, secure installation.
Besides mounting firmly to your trunk, the Thule Gateway provides a powerful grip on your cycles. Its Hold-Fast Cradles act like padded vices, holding your bikes in place while protecting their paint from scratches. Plus, you can pull the Cinch Lever to adjust the height of each arm independently to carry odd-shaped frames without expensive adapters. Best of all, Thule covers your 2- or 3-bike Gateway Rack with a Lifetime Warranty.

received my bike rack in time for my sunday jaunt with my siblings. easy to install, and take down, just wish that the bike lock came with it for that price. It is nice looking stays in place. does not sway. road tested on I-275 and columbus road in Tampa.
