Bike Rack / July 19, 2018 / Corette Jolicoeur
Specifically I purchased the Thule Spare Me bike rack. It attaches with a plate that goes behind the spare tire and has a threaded square tube that holds the rack in place. Then a lockable bolt tightens the rack against the tire and keeps it from falling off the end. The rack also folds down when not in use to keep it out of the way. I have been satisfied the this bike rack since I purchased it a few years back. I have no complaints it has served its purpose and it does exactly what it is supposed to. But I wish I had bought a receiver hitch bike rack. I already had a receiver hitch on my Jeep and the spare me bike rack adds extra weight to the spare tire that was not designed to support extra weight. I must note I havent seen any problems with the spare tire on my truck but Im still a little concerned.
