Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Acura TL


Hi, can you help me choose a hitch rack, I just installed a 1 1/4 inch hitch carrier. My concerns: 1. need to fit 2 mountain bikes and I heard some of the 2-bike rack will not fit 2 mountain bikes. 2. Will the rack block my rear view while I am driving?


Expert Reply:

If your main concern is fitting both of your mountain bikes on a bike rack, then you may want to take a look at the Thule Doubletrack Pro XT Bike Rack, # TH92BJ. It also will fit the 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver on your 2012 Acura TL.

The Doubletrack is a platform-style bike rack that is popular among our customers with larger bikes. The bikes will fit into the wheel trays and are secured to the bike rack using the ratcheting arms.

A hitch mounted bike rack will obstruct the view from your rear view mirror on your vehicle. This is not too much of an issue on trucks, vans and SUVs, but with cars, they can interfere.
