Great rack but...

Great rack but unfortunately it does not fold up and so extends quite far out when empty forcing me to remove it whenever not in use.

Major design miss - doesn't fold vertical. Otherwise excellent

Great rack but MAJOR miss on design

incredible system until I realized the rack does NOT fold up. an empty rack several feet behind the cars is both dangerous to cars and bikers and is illegal in Utah.

It's good!

This is my first official bike rack and it's been great so far for convenience and quality. I added the tail light feature and license plate mount and it doesn't disappoint. It lights up bright and shows off the plate well. I was unable to get the additional cable lock prior to my trip, but ended up getting Kryptonite chain locks and attached them around the frame of the bike and the rack, and then additional chain from bike to bike, which is actually a better idea for safety and security against theft in my opinion. Cables are easier to cut. I also enjoy the flip feature so I am still able to open the box of my truck no problem. As for the no locking up mechanism, I already figured that out with a ratchet strap and a small cushion. Peace of cake. I've been driving around the city where I am with the rack attached and folded in the up right position, no issues other than the extra few feet adding length to my vehicle. It's a bit more costly but

This is a nice rack. Easy to load and unload I have 3 electric bikes and this was the best thing for me. It would be nice if it did lock in a up position so when bikes is not loaded you could fold it up and leave it on vehicle but it's not a deal breaker but I'm gonna figure out how I can fix that so it works that way for me.. But buy this rack it's 100% best thing I found out there..

Thule has perfected the bike hitch rack!!

Thule Epos 3 is the hitch rack we have all been waiting for. Stores folded and compact, wheels to your car hitch, handles to easily put in place, unfolds for use with ease, telescoping arms with rotating grips to hold bikes in place at any point and from any angle, sturdy and strong enough to hold multiple ebikes, sleek stunning look, reflectors and compatible with light and license kit…Did I miss anything? Oh yeah, bikes roll on using accessory ramp. What else? Folds down with ease when fully loaded for rear gate clearance. Also folds up and away when not in use. Ok, it is expensive but in my opinion well worth it. Just a joy to use, pure joy. Thank you Thule, Thank you!!
