Whenever you're transporting your bike, you want to make sure it's stable and safely secured, but at the same time do no damage. The advanced "frame hold" design of the Criterium rack holds the bike in a stable and secure upright position using a C-Clamp. The clamp contains an integrated dial that applies the precise amount of gripping pressure when you turn the knob, so your bike is steady and your frame is unscathed.
A stylish, corrosion resistant aluminum tray is the foundation of the Criterium carrier. It attaches to Thule square bars, round bars, and Thule AeroBlade bars using the Xadapt 8 (sold separately). The C-Clamp fits bike frames up to 3 3/8" diameter and the tray accommodates tires up to 2.6" wide. Ratcheting wheel straps quickly secure the wheels to the tray and two One-Key lock cylinders (sold separately) can lock the bike to the carrier and the carrier to the rack.
A Thule roof carrier protects your bike from road dirt better than hitch or trunk racks. And the stable and secure roof rack attachment also gives you the versatility to add other accessories to the base rack. The Thule Criterium Roof Bike Rack comes with everything required 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.161.95

Although I was told this product had the locking feature the same as the Archway, I was very pleased with the product. It's a little heavier than I was told but not so much that I could not handle it myself. The instructions were easy enough to read, but the pictures were very misleading. It showed the anti-sway cages on the same side, which logically did not make sense to me, so I removed it, and it's broken. I had it right the first time. The anti-sway cage breaks very easily, and I had to replace it, but the cage itself is extremely inexpensive. I had to get the parts from my local bike dealer, as Thule themselves was sold out, which tells me, the cages are commonly broken. All in all, the color, style, and fit are great. I got an excellent deal.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYTHULEÂ® - Doubletrack Hitch Bike Rack2012 Ford Focus

Rack is very sturdy, does not bounce as all on a 1 1/4" hitch. Assembly was a snap and I like the way the bike fits on it. I still have full access to my hatch with bike on but not when it is in the upright storage position.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
