Review of the Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Rack on a 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon


Today on our 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon well be test fitting the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part number TH934XTR. To mount our bike rack to our vehicle well insert the shank of the carrier into the receiver tube of the hitch, well lineup the hitch pinholes, then well thread in our anti-rattle bolt. Well then tighten it down using a wrench. Now well go over a handful of clearance measurements, weve got about 12 of ground clearance and about 4 of clearances between the closest part of the carrier and the closest part of the vehicle. Overall weve added about 13 of length to the rear of the vehicle with the carriers arms folded down. We also want to check for rear vehicle access, well remove the pin at the base of the bike carrier and till it down, we want to make sure that we can open the hatch of our Outback and access the cargo even with our bike rack mounted to the hitch.

Now well put the bike rack back up and prepare to load a bike. Well undo the pin at the top of the carriers so we can fold the arms out. Well undo the rubber straps at the cradles closest to the vehicle and then well grab our bike. Well fit it over the arms of the carrier, set it down into the cradles and secure it using the rubber straps. With that done, our bike is all loaded u pad were ready to hit the road and thats it for our test fit of the Thule Hitching Post Pro hitch mounted bike carrier, part number TH934XTR on our 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon..

Loading isn't any more difficult on this rack than any other dual-arm rack. You'll just have to make sure you alternate the bikes. For a small kids bike, you'll probably also need a bike adapter bar to provide a flat, level tube to hang the bike from. The anti-sway cages on this rack work very well to hold the bikes steady. When we first picked up this rack, we sent it on a family vacation from MO to CO and it performed very well.
