Will Thule Helium Aero Bike Rack On Subaru Outback Fit An Electra Townie Bike?


I am thinking about getting a Townie Electra but I am worried that it wont fit my current hitch bike carrier. I have a hitch mounted Thule for my Subaru Outback Will it work?


Expert Reply:

For your Subaru Outback, a cruiser bike like the Electra Townie will fit on your Thule Helium Aero Pro 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum # TH9042PRO as long as the model you are looking at doesn't exceed 35 lbs. This rack has a two bike capacity with a 35 lb per bike max. Due to the style of the bike frame, I recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005. This will create a top frame rail between your seat and bars for level carrying and proper ground clearance.

If you need a carrier for a heavier bike, I recommend the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount - Tilting # S64683. This rack will work with bikes up to 45 lbs each. It comes with all the security features you would want for a nice new bike too.
