timoha

Can you please some/send some picture of your hitch without the rack installed? I am searching for a hitch for my bike rack. Thanks.

Re: Hitch BIKE Rack by THULE . PICTURES

I've been looking into getting the Thule 916XTR T2 as well, but was worried about the clearance between exhaust and wheel caddies. My roadbikes have carbon wheels, and I've read horror stories of the exhaust melting them when mounted too close.

From your pictures though, it seems like there is decent spacing. Has this been a concern of yours, timoha? Wondering if you've felt the bike's wheels after a long ride and whether it's warm to the touch or not...

It seems like the Yakima Holdup hitchmount bends upwards a little bit, creating upwards clearance from the exhaust. Has anyone had experience with the Yakima Holdup?

Also, for either of these, anyone try them on a newer FX with backup sensors and cameras? Does the hitchmount make the car beep like crazy or get in the way of the backup camera at all?

Thanks in advance!!!

that's interesting. I have an OEM hitch installed on my 12 FX35 and I have the same Thule Rack. I don't think i can fold it up without it hitting my bumper.

But maybe its cause I have the 1st gen of the Thule T2?
