Thule 9029XT Vertex 4

The Vertex 4 is Thule's newest way of revolutionizing the hanging style bike rack.  Bike arms are designed with an arc for easier loading and unloading and more space between bikes.  Increased mast height allows for improved ground clearance.   The Hold Fast Cradles cushion bike and provide maximum security.  The "Hitch Switch" has improved design that makes tilting rack and folding down the arms even easier.  It is also equipped with an integrated handle for easy carrying and handling.   The Vertex line has also added an integrated locking system.  This allows you to lock your bike to the rack while transporting and then the lock stores neatly away when not in use.  What else can you say?  Thanks Thule!
