Subaru WRX / WRX STI 1993-1999, Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack by Thule®. Available in 2-bike and 3-bike options. When you have a variety of bikes to carry you need a rack with versatile features. The arm design and Cinch Lever of the Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack make this rack adjustable to accommodate various bicycle frame designs. And the Hold-Fast™ cradles and No-Sway™ cages will ensure that whatever style bikes you carry, they'll arrive safely and undamaged.
Fitment Note: Fit Models without Spoiler.
If you're a bike riding family, you need a bike rack that can carry all your bikes, regardless of size or style: road bikes and kids' bikes for riding around at the park, and mountain bikes for hitting the trails. The Gateway is the versatile trunk mounted rack that can carry virtually any size and style bike. The narrow bike arms can accommodate a variety of bikes and they're positioned to provide ample spacing between bikes to prevent bike-to-bike contact during transport. The Cinch Levers™ allow the bike arms to adjust independently and easily for unique bike frames.
The patented FitDial with Quick-Fit lever makes installing the Gateway a snap. Its long, curved tubes provide so much clearance even vehicles with spoilers can carry this rack. Maximum strength nylon straps are used to secure the rack to the vehicle, for the safest installation. The Gateway is fitted with oversized ribbed molded pads that are gentle to your vehicle's finish and channel water away to prevent the accumulation of dirt.
To protect your bikes during transit, the Gateway has features like Hold-Fast™ cradles with soft-saddle material to protect your bikes' finish and No-Sway™ cages that prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact. It's 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.

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.
Fits great on my 2007 FJ Cruiser. Love the improvements from the original rack; especially the sway bar and locking device. Very easy to install with clear instructions. Very pleased.
I was amazed at the ease of installation of this product. I took my time and read the directions carefully. When I tested it out with my bike, it seemed secure. It comes with a bike stabilizer and a strap for extra securing of the bike. The only thing, I wish it had was a strap to keep the front wheel of the bike from moving. But I secured it with a bungee cord that I provided. Good value for the money.
The 918 was delivered promptly, and it is a rugged piece of equipment, just as the original 916 tray carrier is. This is the best bike rack system I have ever had. The only downside is the weight, but that is what makes these devices durable.
