    Great rack! Just what I need

    Posted by Jeff Li on May 5th 2017

    I bought two white Switch hitter bike racks from their Boulder store. Very friendly staff, and quick installation. These racks are very aerodynamic on my Thule roof rack, I don't notice any whistle sound or MPG drop when driving. Bike mounting is simple. My car has pretty stiff suspension, a good fork mount like this helps keeping the center of gravity low, and it helps keeping my bike stable.

    Picked up two of these for my Thule Aeroblade bars and they work great. the plates on the bottom of the rack slide into the slot on the bars and they look great. I can carry my santa cruz with a thru axle or my madone with a quick release.
