Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation and great performance Needed a trunk rack to carry three bikes, and discovered this rack has been out for years with excellent performance. Found it easy to install and load the bikes onto it. During multiple trips involving highway driving, the rack performed superbly with not one stitch of damage to the car. As an added bonus, discovered we did not need stabilizer bars for my wife's Fuji and my twin daughters' 20-inch bikes which remained level throughout each trip, although other bikes for women and girls may require using this device. This rack remains a truly excellent product that will reliably perform very well carrying up to three bikes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bike Transport - Sort of Just picked this up today and set a t up for my car. I haven't taken it on the road yet but have two concerns: The metal hooks attach directly to painted surfaces on the car and I worry about the metal-on-metal rubbing and damaging the paint on my new car. Secondly, they are hard to fit over and past the other cradles and neither bike sits on the frame as squarely as they do on my hitch-mounted bike rack. I am probably going to return the rack and try a different transport rack.

How many inches are there between each bike holder? Can the bike holders move on the bar if needed?

Asked by: Marble Falls Drip
As the stay-put cradles move on the rack's arms, the spacing will vary based on placement governed by the bikes' frames. You will able to easily carry both adult bikes and children's bikes in any combination possible.

will this work on vans?

Asked by: alvinauzoeaxel
The Passage 3 Bike Trunk Rack does work on some vans. We recommend using Thule's online fit guide to make sure the rack fits your specific vehicle.

Hello, do this fits into Honda Odyssey 2015.

Asked by: Djozz
This trunk rack is not compatible with a 2015 Honda Odyssey. Unfortunately, Thule does not have a trunk rack solution for your vehicle.

Will this product hold children bikes?

Asked by: Raines07
Yes, even though you will not be able to take advantage of the anti-sway cages for 16- and 20-inch bikes. The children's bikes will still be held securely and level even without these cages used in their intended location on the frames of adult bikes.
