      I found this so easy to put on and take off for storage .Then to put the bike on the rack it is secure no worry about it coming loose.

      I have no negatives
    • No good for kids' bikes

      Vanda (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I love the design of this, but it is absolutely useless for my needs as the two supporting arms are too far apart for my 9 year old son's bike. I'm sure it's fine for adult bikes but it's no good for smaller bikes.
    • No good for mountain bikes

      Paul (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Product description doesn't mention that mountain bike frames will not fit into the frame holders, and I couldn't stretch the rubber strap far enough to secure them. I have standard Giant mountain bikes which have fitted other frames. Disappointed as the carrier looked well designed. I returned this carrier and bought a Maxxraxx carrier elsewhere.
      Light, easy to fit
      didn't fit my standard mountain bike frames
      Response of the brand
      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for taking your time to review the Xpress 2-Bike Suspended Tow Ball Rack. I'm sorry to hear about the issues you faced with the strap length. I think this is something that most of the bike carrier brands seem to overlook. Lots of the bikes now come with the top tube in lots of different sizes and widths.
      I know that I have this problem with my rack and it requires a lot of force to get it over the top tube to make it secure.

      I'll forward this information onto the product manager who should be able to let Thule know of this situation who in turn will hopefully make adjustments to the strap lengths so that this is no longer an issue on future products.
