Thule Raceway Platform looks interesting

8 10 2009

I spent a lot of time on the road this summer with my bike and that’s made me think about investing in a bike rack. Although I can fit a lot into my car, extended trips with gear, bike(s) luggage and a traveling companion can make for tight quarters in my sensible hatchback.

A hybrid between a hitch and trunk rack, the Thule Raceway Platform looks it might give you the best of both worlds. It’s not on the Thule site yet, so there isn’t a lot to go on in the way of specs and pricing. It does however seem to give you the benefits of a hitch mount: like a platform and quick and easy access without the hassle and expense of installing a hitch mount.

This will definitely something I’m going to be checking out in the new year.
