Not quite. The Thule 9502/9503, and many others, can tip out of the way. It takes about 15 seconds to tip it and it gives good access to the boot. The only downside is that you need to remove one of the pedals on some bikes because it doesn't quite move far enough out of the way - although that might be just a combination of Giant Talon and Merc E class estate.Soltydog said:I've used both. Currently using the roof mount & it's preferable IMO. Any rear/tow bar mount makes using the back door / tailgate impossible.
Bit of thread resurrection but this as only 1 of 4 responses to my search.
I currently have a Thule 932 roof mounted cycle carrier, but don't like having to lift the bike above my head, just find it difficult to old it in place whilst I fasten, I have a towbar so I'm looking for a hitchlock type.
Is the Thule any better than the other makes to pay the extra money? Pendle seem more expensive again.
Thanks for that, the Buzz doesn't tilt away from the back of the car, but will I use that feature?
