Review of the Thule Doubletrack Hitch Bike Rack on a 2012 Acura MDX


Today, on this 2012 Acura MDX, we're going to do a test fit of part number TH990XT from Thule, their Double Track Platform Bike Rack. A couple of things to know about this bike rack is that this will work with inch-to-quarter receiver hitches, both Class I and Class II. This will also work with the two-inch receiver hitch with included spacer, and that's we'll be using today. We'll start off our test fit by installing our bike rack into the hitch. We'll tighten down the anti-rattle bolt and install the lock on the other side. Right now, we'll go ahead and unfold the bike rack and get some clearance measurements.

Form the bike rack to the bumper will be about three inches. Ground clearance at the back will be 20 1/2 inches. Overall length will be 29 inches from the bumper. Right now, we'll go ahead and check for access to the back hatch. That looks good.

We'll go ahead and get ready to load up a bike. First thing we'll do is make sure the straps are out of the way in the wheel wells, and we'll also make sure that the clamps and the center post are raised to the top and that the center post is raised up slightly. When we load up a bike, we'll go ahead and put the wheels into the wheel wells, and we'll tilt the bike forward a little bit to make sure that the clamp can get up and over the seat and unto the top of the top tube. Then we'll go ahead and run the straps through the wheels. That's what it takes to load up a bike.

With that, that will finish it for our test fit of part number TH990XT from Thule on our 2012 Acura MDX. .
