  • Thule VeloCompact 927 Towbar Mounted Cycle Carrier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, with reservations Very nicely made and with effective locking system - rack to car and bikes to rack - and once it's attached it is solid, with absolutely no swivelling around the towing hitch, as I'd expected! But there's no getting away from it - it's heavy, and its unavoidable width makes it awkward to carry from garage/shed to car and back, as well as offering it up single-handedly to the towing hitch or removing it. Ideally you yourself need to be 10 stone or more in weight to press down the towing hitch clamp - I'm 91/2 stone and only just manage it. Thule's customer helpline is responsive and helpful with queries - very reassuring. So much safer than clambering up folding steps somewhere in the country to put 3 bikes on roof carriers. No more problems with underground carparks or low trees, nor with motorway tollbooths that 'read' the bikes on the roof and issue the ticket at lorry driver height!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VeloCompact 927 and extension A little more expensive than other models but the rack locks to the towball and each individual bike can be locked to the rack. Solid construction, the bikes don't move at all on this rack. Its light enough to be fitted by one person aswell. Glad I bought this now and not the other one I was considering.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product Fairly straight forward to assemble, some written instruction would be useful instead of just the pictures, manageable weight to carry when not in use

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as they get Nicely made rack, well designed and well finished. Lighting board not so well made - bulbs flickering and repeated problems with the bulbs. Just goes width-ways in the boot of my Skoda Octavia. Still to give it a real try-out, so any other gripes may be simply me getting used to it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Great product, brought this on recommendation from a friend and it is awesome. Very well made, very sturdy and holds the bikes very securely. Excellent tilting mechanism allowing access to the boot even with bikes loaded. The only downside was that we had to buy the 13 to 7 pin adaptor which we thought should be included as this is not a cheap product.

    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)
