    Comments about THULE 9006XT Gateway 2 Bike Carrier:

    This product is great! The initial setup was a little confusing but once you get the hang of it, you can install and remove the rack mount in about 3 minutes. The rack mount holds the bike's in place and comes with all the straps you need to easily secure the mount and the bikes. I haven't purchased a Thule product in 7 years but I was pleasantly surprised to see that they include velcro to manage the excess straps once the straps are fully tightened. The bikes are easy to mount and dismount. Because the rack is easy to install/uninstall I can easily throw the rack in my trunk when I'm out on a bike ride without having to worry about someone stealing it from the back of my car.

    On that note, the one thing I would recommend people check is the tightness of the straps once the bikes are mounted. I found that the weight of the bikes will cause a bit of slack in the straps and once you re-tighten the straps with the bikes then the mount fits snuggly to the car. If you can shake the rack or the bikes and the whole car shakes then you're all set!

    Overall a great product I would highly recommend!

    Comments about THULE 9006XT Gateway 2 Bike Carrier:

    I like this rack alot. The initial set up was confusing because i have never set up one. I drove for awhile and became loose. Once i tightened everything and learned a few tricks it was rock solid not moving at all.

    If you wrap the excess straps around the bars and tie a knot it wont move an inch.

    Over all awesome bike rack. im glad i didnt get a hitch installed. i own a 2009 4dr cobalt by the way,
