      I don't have the locks and the plug covers keep falling off and getting lost. Minor problem otherwise works well.

      Comments about THULE 599XTR Big Mouth Bike Carrier:

      I only got the big mouth carrier because my son's bike (16" wheel) is too small for a side arm. Overall, this does the job, although it's not as easy when loading the bike on top of it as it is with the side arm. I believe it takes a bit more effort when fitting the jaws to the frame of the bike.

        Theses bike racks are just great... but don't forget to buy the locks which needs to be bought separately else the racks won't be secured on your car until properly locked!BTW, the racks are really easy to install but the guide [*].[...]

        Watch if u have anything that would get in the way on your bottom tube ex: pump, water bottle etc. and the plug for where u would insert a lock fell out on my rack (ok because i installed locks) and also the end caps are not very secure! Other then that this rack is very very nice.

          Comments about THULE 599XTR Big Mouth Bike Carrier:

          I purchased this carrier for my carbon road bike as I was advised against fork-mounted racks with carbon forks. As this model was highly recommended I purchased it. It was, as described, easy to install and easy to use, however I immediately discovered that it was not at all stable at high speeds and on uneven terrain. My bike would sway side-to-side whenever I reached speeds over 65 mph, and would rock extensively whenever I drove over bumps, potholes, or even slightly uneven pavement in parking lots. As you can imagine this happens often, and many times it sounded as it the carrier was breaking causing me to stop and investigate. My bike is very light, I can imagine this being even more of a problem for heavier mountain bikes. Additionally, the rubber buffers on the frame side of each of the pinchers would consistently detach from the hard plastic causing friction on the frame of the bike, scratching it. I ended up wrapping the frame in foam before each use to protect it from the rack. I've since purchased the Thule Circuit rack and I've been very pleased with it.

            Comments about THULE 599XTR Big Mouth Bike Carrier:

            Easier than trunk racks. Easy installment with Aero Bars. So easy that uninstalling the carrier could be done even with the bike on it (be sure to lock the bike to the roof rack with a cable lock if security is an issue). It works well with small kid bikes as well as bigger 29" Mt. bikes. The end-caps snap off too easily. The lock plug on the arm is worthless as it pops out when securing the bike. Putting a lock in the carrier arm secures the bike to the carrier, but as stated, the carrier and bike together can be removed rather easily if not locked to the rack.

              I purchased this rack to carry my old trusty Cannondale M2000 around Europe. It filled the bill with no problems. I have since been using it for my Cyclcross bike as well I just toss the bikes up on top of the car and within seconds I am tooling down the road without a care in the world, looking for my next adventure
