Thule 9043 Helium Aero 3-Bike Reviews
BadgerBobrated this item 4 out of 5 on 7/21/2015:
Generally a very good product. The only complaint that I have is that the anti-sway cradles do not securely attach to the bike rack. I have lost several (they fall off of the rack) in the two years I have owned this rack and have had to order more. Do not see any end to the reality of lost cradles. A design change is surely in order or an endless supply of replacement parts.
