It takes some getting use to. It will drive you MAD at the beginning, but you WILL grow to love it. We have a couple of specialized Stumpjumpers, 29ers with 2.3 wheels and no probs, 3rd bike is a specialized hardrock - smaller, but an adult sized bike at the end of the day) and once you have sussed a few tricks it's great: Take off the saddles BEFORE putting the bikes on. Put bikes in order biggest, smallest then the mid-sized. Saddles can be put back on once bikes are in place. Have a good few stretchy ropes handy to make 110% sure things are secure - the 3 arms + wheel straps work fine, but need a little help to keep it all rock-steady. The connection to the tow bar is fantastic, and allows the car to go up/down pretty steep car park ramps no problem without touching. Lighting rig great too - like the rest of it, it's solid, made to last. Get ready for an inital expletive-filled 30 mins trying it out....but....patience.

Decided to spend a bit more and go for this version of the Thule 3 bike carrier based on a recommendation from a friend. It's brilliant, we drove to Scotland from Oxford with 3 full suspension bikes, no problems. Locks give good piece of mind, when leaving the bikes over night I still used a D-Lock just to deter people.
Only downside is it doesn't fold away easily - you have to unbolt the upright stand.

Great piece of kit so easy to set up and easy to install.... even the wife can do it, worth paying that little extra for piece of mind.

Best purchase ever for me...this bike rack is amazing :) I have had a number of bike racks over the years and this by far is the best ever. as a woman I can manage to load up the bikes on my own, clipping this onto my tow hitch very easily and securing the bikes. Great to have the confidence that this is a good secure bike rack. Comes with taillights and place for car registration plate. Everyone I meet thinks that this item is fabulous and asks where they can purchase one. Totally recommend this item.

Great quality from thule!
I like the way that you can tuck things in to make it compact to fit in the boot easily.
I had to find a bike carrier that would fit even with the external spare wheel on my 4x4.
For vehicles with spares wheels mounted on the rear door the Thule Off-Road adapter (920200) is required. (Takes up one bike position).
I highly recommend this product!!
