This is an excellent product. I had some trouble figuring out how to install and needed some help figuring it out. Once I saw how to install, it was simple to put on the car. The only problem I had with the product description was it did not indicate in more simple terms that I needed an extra part. I have a 'girls' bike and do not have the bar that goes across the top from the seat to handlebars. It states it holds a standard bike, I thought I had a standard bike. I had to purchase this part and wished I knew that when I bought the rack. When I discovered the problem, customer service was excellent and prompt. They steered me in the right direction, and I was able to use the rack. It is very sturdy, and I do not have any fear hanging the bike on my Malibu and driving around.Was this review helpful for you?

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.4 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

I purchased the Thule Gateway bike rack from the CARiD website just prior to relocating from Southern California to Southern Oregon. I stowed 1 road bike on the made-for-2 rack and traveled over 700 miles at speeds exceeding 80mph, no problems. I took it upon myself to watch video reviews of the installation before departing. This is definitely advised, one if not the best way to ensure the installation is correct, will stand the distance and speeds.8 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?
