Review from a similar T2 Pro XTR in Hitch Bike Racks


Your personal service provided me was excellent. The main problem is with the installation instructions provided by Thule that are very poor. It simply does not go into the needed detail for an accurate and complete install. Also, when you have a fat tire there is no mention on what you need to do with the straps to expand the length needed. Most people would think that this product does not work, but it does if you know what the fix is to lengthen the straps. The bottom line for me was to follow a [online] video that recognizes the confusion from the "manual" and then takes you through the clear steps to make it all work. Greg, when you have a chance, refer to "Thule T2 Pro XT and XTR Hitch Mount Bike Rack Assembly Tips" and see the comments and instructions presented. Thule most likely knows about this but they need to be reminded so further improvements can be made for their written instructions. Again Greg, your service was outstanding. The written instructions are out of your control.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Hitch Bike Racks

  • What Rack Can Be Used With Bikes with a Front Fender?
    This is not something we typically recommend due to the risk of damage to the bike, but if you have the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH23JV, the rack will sometimes fit for bikes with small fenders. I recommend fitting the ratchets under the fender if they fit. The guaranteed safe way to not damage your fenders is the Thule DoubleTrack Pro XT Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH92BJ because the ratcheting hooks attach at the bike frame. You can also add key lock cylinders # TH450200...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2 e-Bikes on 25 Foot Motorhome
    The Thule T2 Pro XTS, part # TH9035XTR which we refer to as our part number of # TH23JV is compatible for use in a 1-1/4 inch hitch on a motorhome like your Leisure Travel Van 25foot Mercedes 3500. The rack can carry 2 e-bikes weighing up to 50 lbs apiece with tires up to 5 inches in width. If you have a 2 inch receiver, you'd want to use a different rack. I'd recommend the Hollywood Racks RV Rider, part # HLY64FR. The RV rider can carry two bikes weighing up to 80 lbs per bike with...

  • Is Thule T2 Pro XTR 2-Bike Rack for 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Secure in Hitch Receiver
    The Thule T2 Pro XTR 2-Bike Rack # TH23JV will absolutely be secure in your vehicle's 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver. The Auto Pin will automatically latch on when you put the rack on, and like you mentioned, all you have to do is twist the knob, which is going to ensure the shank remains tight inside the receiver. This system, called an Auto Attach system, replaces a traditional anti-rattle hitch pin, and the fact it is both easier to use, and just as steady as a rack with one of...

  • What Replacement Part do I Need for My Thule T2 Pro XTR #TH23JV?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, my contact at Thule confirmed that the wedge piece you need is not available on its own. In order to get the wedge piece for your Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH23JV, you will need to replace the backbone. The part you need is the Replacement 1-1/4" Hitch and Backbone Assembly for Thule T2 Classic 2-Bike Platform Rack # 753370902

  • Availability of 2 Bike Add-on for Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch
    The Thule T2 Pro that fits the 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver, like part # TH23JV, was not built to accommodate the 2 bike add-on so you will need to make sure that you have a 2 inch hitch receiver on your vehicle. You can then purchase the T2 Pro XTR for 2 inch hitches as part # TH83JV, and then the add-ons later with part # TH9036XT. Keep in mind that the 4 bike option is for use on a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver. You will also want to make sure that you do not exceed the tongue...

  • Will the Thule T2 Pro XTR Work With Class II Trailer Hitch 1-1/4 Inch Using Adapter
    In order to use the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH83JV (which has a 2" shank) with a 1-1/4" receiver tube you will indeed need an adapter, the Brophy Hitch Adapter part # HT5R or part # HTAD. The adapter with rise will be needed for smaller vehicles with less ground clearance whereas the straight adapter can be used for larger trucks and suvs. That said, the use of a hitch adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50% so you will need to keep...

  • How to Use Thule T2 Pro XT Bike Rack for 2 Receivers with 1-1/4 Receiver
    In order to use your Thule T2 Pro XT Bike Rack # TH83JV with the 1-1/4" receiver on your new Subaru Outback I recommend the Brophy Hitch Adapter # HTAD. This will provide you with the needed 2" receiver and you can use the Anti-Rattle Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 to secure it to your vehicle and reduce rattle/movement at the connection. Please just keep in mind that using an adapter like this decreases the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. Just be sure that...

  • Can Saris SA805BL Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Carry 45lb e-Bike on 2021 Hyundai Kona
    According to Saris, their # SA805BL Bones 2-bike trunk mount rack can accommodate 2 bikes weighing up to 35 lbs each. Even though the total weight of the two bikes you're wanting to carry won't exceed the capacity of the rack, having a bike weighing 45 lbs would place stresses on the rack that it wasn't engineered to withstand and could cause the rack to fail. The same would hold true for the # SA803 as well. An alternative option would be to install a Class I hitch like the Draw-Tite...

    The most recent version of the Thule T2 is the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches part # TH83JV and part # TH23JV for 1-1/4" hitch applications. These replace the older 2" Thule T2 versions TH9034 and TH9034XT (2") and older 1-1/4" versions TH9035 and TH9035XT. The differences are the XTR model has 1-1/2 inches more distance between bicycles with a measurement of 12-1/2 inches and weighs 2 lbs more. It also has further side to side adjustability.

  • Adapter for Class 1 Trailer Hitch With 1-1/4 Inch Receiver to Use Thule Bike Rack
    The only 1-1/4" to 2" adapter that will work with the Class 1 Curt Trailer Hitch # C11000 that fits your 2012 VW Golf is the Brophy Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HTAD. It is important to note that a hitch adapter will reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50 percent, which means the 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the Curt Hitch # C11000 becomes 100 lbs when using an adapter. That matters because if you are using the Thule T2 Pro XTB # TH83JV, for example, it weighs...

  • Can the 2 Inch Shank On the Thule T2 Pro XTR Be Replaced with a 1-1/4 Inch Shank
    I do have an option for you but the shank on your Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH83JV is not serviceable meaning you cannot switch it out for the 1-1/4" version. There is a dedicated version of the T2 Pro XTR for 1-1/4" hitches, part # TH23JV. The only other option I have for you to use this bike rack with a 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver is to use a hitch expander like part # MT70032. However, the adapter will reduce your hitch's weight capacity by 50 percent.

  • Will Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack Work With Class I 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    Even with a Class I, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver like the Draw-Tite # 24816 that fits your 2007 Mazda 3, you can absolutely use the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2-Bike Rack # TH23JV. The XTR is rated for use with a Class I hitch, and is one of the premier racks in the industry because of how easy it is to use, its durability, and its optimal bike spacing to keep your bikes protected. It even has included hitch and cable locks to help protect the investments you made in the rack and your bikes.

  • Hitch for 2019 Honda CR-V to Carry Thule T2 Pro XT Bike Rack
    Yes. The Curt # C13397 has a 2" receiver opening and would be a great option for carrying around a Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV on the rear of your 2019 Honda CR-V. If you already have the Thule T2, you'll want to make sure that it has the 2" receiver shank and not the 1-1/4" receiver shank like the # TH23JV. If you actually have the 1-1/4" version you will instead want to use the Curt # C12169. I've attached the installation videos for these hitches to this answer to help you when it...

  • Fat Bike Rack Recommendation that Can Fit Tires that are 4.8 inches Wide
    We have fat bike racks that will work great for your bike that has tires that are 4.8 inches wide but even with the Phat tire adapter part # APBK the Kuat Transfer part # TS01B can only accommodate up to a 4.5 inch wide tire. For a similar platform bike rack that only touches the bikes at the tires and can fit up to a 5 inch wide tire we have the Thule T2 Pro XTR part # TH83JV if you have a 2 inch hitch or the part # TH23JV if you have a 1-1/4 inch hitch.

    We know of people who have used the Brophy hitch adapter part # HT02 with the Thule T2 Pro part # TH23JV that you have so we know it does fit. Thule doesn't like to endorse the use of these types of adapters with their bike racks but we have had them tell us in past they do not void their warranties.

  • Suggested Hanging Bike Rack for a 2015 Mazda 6
    The weight and length of the e-bike definitely complicates things when you have a Class I 1-1/4 hitch, but it is not impossible. For a hanging rack, I suggest the Hollywood Racks Commuter 2 # HR2500. This will handle 75 pounds of capacity, and will fit your 1 1/2 hitch. With you beach cruiser though, you will also need an adapter like the # HRBA-PRO to get it attached. I do have a platform rack that may also work for you, however.

  • Solution For Using A 2-Bike Carrier On Two Vehicles With Different Size Hitch Receivers
    It is typically a better idea to use a bike rack that can fit 1-1/4" and 2" receivers, rather then try to use a hitch adapter to convert a 2" bike rack to fit a 1-1/4" receiver which will reduce your hitch receiver's capacity by 50%. You can, however, use hitch adapter # HT02 to convert a 2" receiver to fit a 1-1/4" bike rack and this will not reduce your hitch capacity. So you could certainly use Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" Hitches - Wheel Mount # TH23JV with the...

  • Platform Bike Rack Similar to Thule T2 that Fits both 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch Hitch Size
    The Thule T2 bike rack is an excellent rack but there really isn't a great way to use it in different hitch sizes since Thule makes a dedicated 2 inch version # TH83JV and a 1-1/4 inch version # TH23JV as well. Hitch adapters are kind of a mess too since they add quite a bit of movement and can sometimes cut hitch capacity. For a similar rack that can easily do both hitch sizes I would recommend the Saris SuperClamp part # SA4025F which would be an excellent option. It's very similar...

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter for Increased Stability using Thule T2 Pro XT 1.25 Inch BIke Rack
    For your Thule T2 Pro XT # TH23JV with 1.25 inch shank, the anti-rattle adapter should be tightened when installing while wiggling and moving the rack shank simultaneously. The movement while installing removes some of the slack that may naturally be there providing more stability when the bikes are loaded. If you still want additional stability, I recommend using the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches # RM-061-125 which is a mechanical assist so it will require a wrench.

  • Can Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack for 2 inch Hitch be Used with 1-1/4 inch Hitch of 2014 Honda Accord
    It's not an ideal solution but you can use a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch hitch adapter with the Thule T2 Pro XT part # TH83JV and it will fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch the # C11681 that fits your 2014 Honda Accord. For a compatible adapter you'd want the part # HTAD. Your best solution would be the T2 that fits the 1-1/4 inch hitch part # TH23JV.

  • Best Bike Rack to Carry Folding Bikes
    Folding bikes typically have pretty small wheels and also frames that have lower crosstubes so for a bike rack I recommend a platform rack that attaches by the grabbing the tire like the Thule T2 Pro XTR part # TH83JV for a 2 inch hitch or part # TH23JV for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. This will give you the securest, easiest to use, and overall best bike rack solution for your folding bikes.
