    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product What an awesome product. I don’t normally write reviews but I am just so impressed with this that I thought I should. I was looking for a tow bar rack to carry my Giant e+2 full suspension MTB and did considerable research on line before making a decision. I wanted to be able to carry another ebike also in the future when required and nearly every rack that I looked at would only carry one ebike due to the weight. This will adequately carry two ebikes. It is beautifully made and very purposeful. It locks on and the bikes also lock on so there is no requierment to buy any extras once you have purchased. Full marks from me!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product from Thule I'm a huge fan of Thule products. The quality is always top notch. The Velo Compact doesn't dissapoint and manages my high expectations for the brand. The kit is a masterpiece and crafted to the highest standard. I think this may be my last Thule purchase as it looks such quality I won't have to buy another bike rack ever again. I've also bought an adapter to enable it to hold 4 bikes, so should be great for our family. Overall, I'm pleased I spent a little extra to get the best possible rack. Hopefully the lock is strong enough to prevent someone pinching it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from robust and effective does what it says on the tin, very robust and supports 3 bikes it is alittle overpriced given that most people will get this if they will eventually need 4 bikes and then have to pay for the 4th bike adapter. manual is lacking some description but it can be worked out easily enough. we had to pay for an additional 13 to 7 pin adapter which would seem to be a norm on the vehicles i've seen (audi/bmw etc)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once attached, rock solid only minor gripes keep it from 5*. Very good carrier. A couple of minor niggles keeps it off a 5* which for me are: 1. The instruction booklet is woeful - I am poor at DIY and although it comes mostly assembled there are a couple of things to do (with supplied allen key). Even so the instruction book of cartoons could be so much better - for instance to assemble the frame arms that hold the bikes you need to make sure the 'knobs' are unlocked, then undo them to give you enough leeway to be able to separate the connectors for assembly onto the correct bracket. Put into position, assemble and then tighten. Nothing at all in the instructions saying that! Okay being able to remove them is good given you won't always be carrying 3 bikes but you gotta know how to put them on and off! 2. For me, the power cable connector could be a little longer and have better positional straps so that you can adjust subject to your cars need. 3. Make sure the collapsable back bar is tightly secured - if not you risk it moving and possibly damaging your car and / or bike. 4. While it is good to have the locking function with same key I to am not convinced that they are that sturdy (see earlier review!). Still a deterrent of sorts. 5. It is a close and fiddly job to actually get 3 bikes on the rack real trial and error. with my bikes and I am sure more problematic for others! Once correctly attached - beware! It is an excellent product, very secure with very little movement noticed. Indeed last weekend driving in Wales during Storm Brian had no impact on the rack - only on some drivers who must never have driven when windy! So when parking don't forget it's on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thule 927 Used once so far with two full sus mtb's trek slash. Well what can I say other than solid as can be, bikes didn't move at all! During the 280mile round trip to bikeparkWales Only gripe I put some old inner tube over straps to protect rims

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No security, no manufacturer interest How do you review something that should be quality, from a quality manufacturer, that in fact is so poor two bikes got stolen second time it was used. In the words of Thule "lock your bikes to the carrier and the carrier to your car", the second bit is true, the first not. All it took was an implement like a screw driver to force the locked jaws apart and in moments two bikes disappear! But what is worse still Thule do not care, despite emails not one response. Halfords you will be getting this back, perhaps you can get a response. In the meantime I will wait for news of £3500 of bikes. This review could be deemed as emotional, not at all, a police CSI expert inspected the parts and said it is of poor design in tjeir opinion.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thule Compact Velo I bought this bike rack to replace the two existing ones that we were using. It takes about 8 minutes to load one bike and just over 15 minutes to load all three. The rack is compact and fits into the back of a medium SUV with very little problem. Overall, I'm happy with rack because it is easy to use, but it does have its shortcomings. For example, it is not MTB friendly because the top attachment arm does not fit the top tube of my full suspension bike. I've also had to buy three crossbar attachments from Halfords to fit the range of bikes that I carry at the addition cost of £60. Also, I have to place my MTB in the middle holder due to its frame design even when carrying one bike. On a positive the snowboard style binding straps that hold the wheels are great and very easy to use. To summarise a good rack, but be aware you may need to buy crossbar attachments depending whether or not you are carrying a full suspension mountain bike, DH bike, woman's bike, or child's bike.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product upgrading to the 3 bike carrier. No discussion of what make: THULE is the best on the market for safety ease of fitting and security. The one key system makes it a breeze to secure.
