5.0 out of 5 stars High quality product 12 Mar 2009
This is a top quality product and comes with a quality light board. All you need is a number plate. But even here, the light board has plastic lugs which pop out and grab the number plate so you don't have to drill it or use sticky pads.

It may take a while to build confidence in the rack as it is quite simply grabbing hold of just the tow ball. It's crucial therefore to tighten the clamp bolt to the manufacturers specs. I might see if I can get hold of a long socket so I can use a torque wrench.

The only thing I would ask Thule to do is provide a longer lighting lead. Our 7 pin sockets are hidden beneath the bumber, like many 'concealed' systems these days. The Thule lead just won't reach so we have to use a coiled extension lead which means additional expense and hassle. This is a minor niggle though

5.0 out of 5 stars Carrying bikes 13 Sep 2009
Excellent bikerack, covered 2000 miles with 3 bikes on it. Was unable to open boot with rack of bikes tilted, but was prepared for this. Easy to build and fit but had to buy connector adaptor for Zafira electrics. Bikes felt secure through out trip and car wasn't scratched or view disrupted as with back window rack. Bikes removed easiy unlike roof mount. Classed as bike rack on ferry crossing even though sticks out considerably.

5.0 out of 5 stars thule rideon 3 11 July 2011

Great bike carrier! If you have tow bar this one is a must. Comes with build instructions which are easy to follow and once put together is a very sturdy carrier. Once attached to the car it tilts allowing access to your boot which is a great help. During the journey the bikes feel completly safe. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thule Rideon 3-bike 7 July 2011
Verified Purchase
I have used this item for a couple of weeks now and have just driven over 1,000 miles with it on the back of my car. In terms of value for money, there is absolutely nothing to compare with this. It is simple to put together, is very solid when on the car and probably the best part is when you take the bikes off you can simply put it in the boot of your car (I do have a Mazda 6 Estate, but am sure it will fit inside a smaller boot) and go off riding. Absolutely outstanding value for money and the usual great service from Amazon after the first one went missing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't open tailgate 13 Nov 2009
I have the 2-bike version of this, rather than the 3-bike version. It is advertised as allowing 'boot access' by tilting. Nowhere on the packaging (or on descriptions on internet sites) does it say that you may only be able to open the tailgate a few inches. Any pictures show a car with tilted bikes and a tailgate fully open.

When I wrote to complain that my tailgate would not open fully, all they said was that I should have tried it out before buying it. How can you do this if buying on the internet? Or even if you buy it from somewhere like Halfords? It comes in pieces which you have to assemble yourself.

So - if you choose this because you want access to your boot without taking the bikes off, just be aware that you might not get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended 7 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
Had to buy a new bike carrier as my new car has a swan neck rather than a flange towbar & the old one didn't fit. Lighter than my previous carrier so easier to put on the car. Bought at the best price anywhere & worth every penny. It will fit either style of towbar so will never have to worry about style of towbar fitted again. Delighted with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great bike rack 20 May 2010
By Neil
Verified Purchase
A very well made bike rack, which comfortably handles three bikes. Other reviews on build quality and security of bikes are accurate. Why only 4 stars ? One niggle for me is the securing bolt - if the rack came with a ratchet type spanner then it would be perfect, as it is a little bit fiddly to tighten the bolt. (only a little fiddly, and I'm probably being over-fussy). Optional lock to stop the bolt being undone by a thief is a sensible addition, but again at this price point would be nice if this was included in the main kit.

Certainly would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thule Rideon 3-Bike 17 Aug 2011
A very well thought out piece of kit. We drove from Bedford to Aberdeen and back and the bikes were rock steady the whole time. My doubts about the towball mounting were completely unfounded - the towball clamp is very strong indeed. We only have two bikes at the moment but I decided that the three bike carrier offered more flexibility for little extra cost. It also gave a bit more boot clearance when carrying two bikes. Overall, a highly recommended product.
