The combination of attractive styling and practical features makes the Raceway Trunk Bike Rack the carrier to have for all your bike transporting needs. Whether it's a trip to the park with the kid's bikes or a trek to the woods to tackle the trails with the mountain bikes, the Raceway is ready when you are. The Thule Raceway Bike Rack can be secured to trunks or hatches quickly and easily with the ratcheting cables. The molded rubber pads and cable covers protect the vehicle's finish at the points of attachment. Turning the patented FitDial to adjust the cables applies just the right amount of tension to ensure a secure hold.
The narrow cradle arms on the Raceway can accommodate most bike frames, so you're never limited with what you can carry. And each bike loads with its vertical downtube attached to an anti-sway cage, to prevent damaging bike-to-bike or bike-to-vehicle contact during transit. The Raceway carrier locks to the vehicle at the FitDial and the bikes can be locked to the carrier with the integral cable (lock included). When not transporting bikes, the bike arms can be rotated down and out of the way, which will make parking and garage access easier.
The Raceway Trunk Bike Rack is available in a version that carries up to 2 bikes and one that carries up to 3. It comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.233.95 260.95

Once the rack is installed, it holds bikes securely in place and makes theft difficult. I had some problems installing the rack the first time and the instructions were of marginal help. I could not attach the trunk hooks without opening the trunk, once I attached the hooks it was just a matter of adjusting the cables to achieve the proper fit. The rack's size and weight make it difficult to handle while installing. I did not have any problems with trunk dents reported by some users. Two light weight folks could install it easily. Despite the initial installation problems, I recommend this bike rack for anyone that cannot use the trailer hitch version.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
