Thule 9028 Vertex 2

The Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack stands apart from other hanging type bike racks with its arc design making it easier to load and unload.  This also allows for greater distance between your bikes offering more protection.  Because of a taller upright mast, The Vertex sits higher than previous Thule Hitch Bike Racks, which translates into better ground clearance.  A  long list of newly improved features make this 2 bike rack quite possibly the best value of any other bike rack available.
