I recently nearly lost a bike off the car roof when an old rack failed on the motorway so I decided to splash out and bought the X2 pack of this item from Sandicliffe Shop via Amazon.

Like other Thule products, this is top quality equipment and once installed on roof bars, fitting the bikes is a doddle. The rack is adjustable to fit a wide range of bike sizes.

Others have commented on the packaging and the rack is in a strong cardboard box, probably more sutable for sale in a shop than mail order, but it's hard to imagine a vendor unpacking the box and repacking it with bubble wrap or something similar. The keys are in a little slot on the rack, but the box has push-out holes to form handles and the loss of keys another reviewer experienced is a problem waiting to happen. Sandicliffe Shop did wrap mine in strong polythene, making it much less likely and mine arrived quickily and in good condition.

The instructions are the usual Thule diagrams which you either understand or you don't. Happily for those of us who don't, there are videos on youtube showing how the job is done. It's fiddly but not difficult, once you know how.

Other reviewers have mentioned the locks which are the standard Thule type. I think they probably deter people from stealing roof bars simply because wrecking them defeats the point of stealing them. Bearing in mind that even bike locks costing as much as this rack are regularly defeated by experienced thieves, expecting Thule cylinder locks to keep a bike safe is probably unrealistic.

Otherwise the product description on Amazon is clear and accurate so I've not commented on those features.

easy to use and had no issues as all three bikes were completely secure, little tip when putting bikes onto rack, use a bungee cord to fasten front wheel to bike frame as this makes lifting ( the hardest part) the bike a lot easier as thwe front wheel is not flaying about.

Well made and light weight, offering the possibilty of changing the holding bar to the other side if two racks are being used. Two systems for fixing to roof bars are supplied, one for T slot bars taking 20 x 20mm fixings, and the other a clamp system. The capacity of these clamps will accommodate small square bars but possibly not larger cross section non T slot types. Good pictorial instructions and assembly is easy though two pairs of hands saves frustration in trying to balance the holder, the plastic locking lever, a threaded T slot bolt and the nut it screws into at the same time. The system locks with a key and it would take a determined person to remove the bike. The holder is adjustable for the bike wheel spacing by sliding the rear plastic retainer. The clamp for the arm opens wide. It tightens via a hand wheel and releases in one press button movement. The price for a Thule product with free delivery in mid 2012 looks very competitive. There was no packaging around the manufacturer's box and the keys were floating loose inside and could fall out in delivery as another reviewer has commented.

Why four stars? The clamp has v shaped jaws but even so, on oval frame tube, they hold the bike only by tangential contact gripping acoss the widest part of the tube. The number of warnings in the instruction book and an additional label saying that the tube must be placed centrally in the clamp suggest this has been a source of problems, Clearly there is a risk that if not centralised and with limited contact, the bike could become dangerously loose in motion. (I have another bike holder with a very clever offset system for the jaws that holds oval tubes across the narow dimension, unlike this Thule).

Several people have queried the mountings. This came with two modes of mounting: 1. with 20mm 'T' shaped bolts that can fit within the track of a suitable roof-rack crossbar and 2. with rain gutter style brackets that can fit around a roof-rack crossbar.

Choosing a compatible roof-rack can be problematic. I found micksgarage to have the best priced racks and they gave excellent advice on suitability.

It's important to tighten the wheel straps when not in use as otherwise the wheel mounts might slide off and be lost. I've light 'cruz' plastic mudguards on my bike and I found it necessary to tie the rear ends of the guards to the wheels to prevent them vibrating to smithereens while on the car. The jaws of the bike clamp have a clever and easily accessible release button. It has a little curve in it that might suggest this is the direction it needs to be pushed to operate but it's actually the other way. This is no big deal if you remember that it takes very little effort to operate this release button even if the jaws have been over-tightened.

I must put a note on my dash reminding me of the increased height clearance required - it's nearly 3 metres on my car with a bike mounted.

Other reviewers gave given good advice by noting:
- don't regard this unit or it's included locks as an effective anti-theft device.
- there is surprisingly little windage noise (barely noticeable at 100 kph).
