Buy this rack!
I love this rack! I used to take my front wheel off and attach my bike to a fork mount in the bed of my truck. WIth a cap, this became really annoying. Also, I stick the dogs in the bed after muddy rides. Even if you take this rack on and off your car each time you use it, it is still easier than other methods. Each bike takes about 25 seconds to get on. We have had two downhill rigs on there with no signs of stress.

Only complaints are cost and the support beam is a bit short, meaning two bikes are very close together. With my large bike and my wife's women's small, that means my saddle has to come off each trip. Other than that, an awesome product.

PROS: Securely holds bikes, Solid Construciton

Nice rack
A little tricky to put together, but once done this rack is great. Easy to use, study, and holds the bike securely.

Worth the extra $$$
I'm glad I spent the extra money for the T2. I like the way itt secures the bikes. No contact with the rack and the bike frame. Comes with locks. A little on the heavy side, but, ok for me.

Should have bought this one to begin with...
After buying too many other racks, I glad I finally broke down and got one that doesn't have the bikes beating each other up.
Great rack and easy to use

Simply AWESOME
This is the third rack I've purchased in attempt to find one that doesn't take 35 minutes to load the families bikes!! I'm happy to say...I've finally found it!! This rack is awesome!! I can load 4 bikes ( with the 2-bike add on rack) in literally 3-4 minutes! Not to mention the design of this rack doesn't scratch the frames of the bikes, as all the mounting is done at the tires and not the frame.
GREAT RACK Thule! And great next day delivery!

PROS: Effortless To Loadunload, No Top Tube Hang Hassles, A Well Designed Rack

CONS: Pricey but worth it, Priceybut worth it

Best Rack ever!
I bought the original T2 back in 2008, so I have been using this rack for 4 years. I went through three or four different racks before I got this one, and it is easily the best rack I have ever used. It is easy to use, and folds up with not in use, yet is easy to move to access the back of my Durango. This allows me to leave it on the car for about 8 months of the year, only removing it for winter.

I also purchased the 2-bike add-on, though I haven't used this as much (it mainly just hangs in the garage and looks cool).

The T2 is a very heavy rack, but this seems to add to the durability of it. By situating bikes side by side, but without touching, you need a lot of rack, so the heavy-duty rack is a must. Also, the cost can be a lot to swallow. I was lucky to get a great deal on it, but have found it is much cheaper than buying multiple racks tryig to find the best one. Just buy this rack! It is easy better now with the integrated locks (a feature my original T2 doesn't have).

PROS: Fast, Secure, Durable, Easy to use

CONS: Heavy, Expensive
