The Thule T2 Classic Bike Rack has been around for quite a while and it still offers the same level of versatility. It comes in a number of variants, and each one can accommodate nearly any type of bike size, frame, and shape. It can fit wheels of up to 29-inches and wheels ranging up to five inches without requiring any adapters. For security, this bike rack has a Snug-Tite Lock that secures the carrier itself to the receiver trunk. It is highly recommended to be used with Thule's One-Key system. A ratcheting arm also clamps the frontal wheels of the bike, ensuring that there is no frame contact. Thanks to the hardware's Hitch Switch lever, the racks fold up easily and out of the way when not loaded and not in use. This feature helps prevent the risk of scratch and damages especially during parallel parking and backing up.

Zero frame contact
The T2 Classic holds your bike in place by using a large ratcheting arm that secures onto your front tire and a rear wheel strap that secures your back tire in place. This type of attachment provides the utmost flexibility in the types of bikes you can carry, from heavy downhill mountain bikes to carbon fibre road bikes and everything in between. Small bikes can be carried as long as they have a minimum of 20 inch tires.

Fat bike compatible
The T2 Classic has been outfitted with wider wheel trays and a larger ratcheting arm which gives you the ability to carry fat bikes with tires up to 5 inches wide right out of the box. The 9044 also includes a longer rear wheel strap which allows you to securely hold the back tire in place.

Easier hatch access
The T2 Classic uses a hitch switch lever which allows you to fold the rack down providing better access to the hatch, trunk or tailgate of your vehicle. This can be done with or without bikes on the rack. On the back of SUVs and CUVs you can often open up the back hatch without needing to remove your bikes when the rack is in the folded down position. When the rack is not in use, it can be folded up vertically along the back of the vehicle, giving you better clearance if you are trying to park in garage or smaller stall.

Ability to add an additional 2 bikes
The 9044 can also be expanded to a four bike carrier by adding the Thule 9046 T2 Classic 2 Bike Add-On (sold separately). To install the two bike add on you simply remove the cover on the 9044 and slide the 9046 into the tube, the rack is then bolted together providing security and stability.
