Thule 9028 Vertex 2-bike Questions


Charles asked on 9/16/2013:

Vehicle: 2012 Jeep Wrangler hard top
Why wont the hitch ski work with this rack? The dimensions work.


The hitch ski needs to have a 4 bike carrier at minimum to be able to rest on the arms. The 2 bike carrier arms are not long enough to hold the hitch ski. If you would like another solution or would like to look at a 4 bike carrier feel free to contact us directly at 508-879-1444. Thank you.

Vehicle: 2011 Honda Accord
This is my first bike hitch so I hope this isn't a silly question. I have a girls bike with a dipped bar, how does the bike sit on the Vertex 2-bike? All the pics show a mens bike.

Hi Kelly,

To make a step through frame, or any other odd shaped frame you can use the Thule 982XT Frame Adapter. It connects to the seat post and stem of the bike to create a top tube for your bike to rest on. Check it out here:


We've got plenty of them in stock at our store in St Louis Park if you'd like to stop in and pick one up.
