Review of the Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Rack on a 2017 Honda CR-V


Today on our 2017 Honda CRV we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part number TH934XTR. Now, we already have our bike mounted onto our bike rack. We're going to have three points of contact. We're going to have two straps that are going to come across the top, going across our top frame here. Then we're going to have a support right here with this strap going on our cradle on our vertical support, it's going to act as the anti-sway. Now to take our bike off we're simply just going to remove the straps from each one of our cradles, and then we can take our bike right off. Now the cradles up here are going to hold your bike frame secure, and the grooves in here are going to make sure that it doesn't slide around.

Now, the rubber straps are going to make sure that we don't have any scratches or abrasions on our frame. Now with our bike off and out of the way we can go ahead and take a few measurements. Overall this is going to be roughly adding right about 41" total to the length of our vehicle. Now, at the closest point it's going to be right back here at the back of the mast. That's going to be roughly about 9-1/2". Now as far as ground clearance goes, at the lowest point of our bike rack, it's going to be right about 11-1/2" off the ground. There's another position I would like to show you.

When we don't have our bikes on here, maybe for close quarters, getting into the garage or anything like that, if we come back to the back of the mast here there's a clip. We can release that clip, pull our pin out, and then we can rotate the mast down into the stored position. I'm going to go ahead and replace our pin. Now with the arms down, at the farthest point away, it's going to be right about here. Now we're only going to be adding about 18" to the total length of the vehicle.

So it is going to make quite a bit of difference. Now there is one more position I'd like to show you. If we come down here to the bottom of the mast we can go ahead and remove that clip again, and we can pull the pin out. This time we can actually lower the mast down so that we can get into our hatch to get anything in or out that we may need. Then simply just lift the mast back up, line up the pinholes, and we're going to replace our pin and clip. It's nice and secure now. Now this bike rack is designed to work with 1-1/4" and 2" hitches.

It does come with an anti-rattle bolt which is going to take away the slop and the slack and all the rattle when you're driving down the road.Speaker 2: This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom. This shows side to side action such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris, or uneven pavement. Last of all the solid speed bumps. This shows up and down action such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage, or driving in and out of a driveway.That'll finish up our look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part number TH934XTR, on our 2017 Honda CRV.
