Something Unexpected Occurred...
Customer Rating: 4.0 of 5
Lightweight, easy to attach to
hitch. Easy to load bikes, they
are held securely. Ideal for 29"
mountain bikes and road bikes.
Thelma 3 is all you need.
Design, weight, functionality
are all 5 stars. I have hitch
position like described below,
though. Rack in up position
hit bumper and couldn't be
secured. Simply by belt
sanding down the plastic wheel
holders closest to car fixed
it. The rack is breeze and
everyone who sees it loves it.
But none more than me. 5 stars
also to ACK. Answering calls
on weekend, very helpful
staff, product in stock and
best price (using 20% coupon)
by a long shot. Thelma 3
This is a good product, but be
aware that it is not
compatible with receivers that
are recessed more than 3
inches from the bumper. I
think it would be an easy
install for vehicles which do
not have recessed receivers.
In my case, I had to buy and
extension and an additional
lock. I would not have bought
the rack if I had known about
this problem, but I do like my
bikes being supported under
the wheels instead of being
suspended as in my previous
Something else to be aware of
is that you can not see how
far the rack extends beyond
the car when it is unloaded
and is in the deployed
position. I think that other
vehicles, especially in
parking situations, may not
see the rack either and could
easily hit it when pulling in
or out. Fortunately, The rack
is very easy to deploy and
easy to swing up into the
Have not used it yet. Attached it to my hitch
with not problems. Second time I attached it

saw the bike rack from my truck. Discover that
inside the hitch is a 1/2 inch nut held in place
by a plastic bracket. Saris explained it works
just fine and sent me a new plastic nut holder
and bolt. Will try it again but very little
confidence in a plastic nut holder. Would not
recommend this to anyone. Will probably have to
take it to a machine shop and have it upgraded to
solid metal at my expense.
Purchased product to transport three mountain
bikes with rear suspension (that cause problems
with my existing Yakima rack). Thelma fit the
bill perfectly. What's really nice is that you
don't have to take off the front wheel...just
place the bike in the wheel slot, cinch everything
up, and drive to your destination. On the highway
it helps to put a strap on the outboard bike and
attach it to the vehicle to avoid wind sway, but
otherwise keeps the bikes safe and secure.
