You have to buy a women's bike adaptor, (about $30) and it is a bar that makes the frame like a mens frame. Bike shops sell them.

Thule 515-5033 BIKE RACK manual


It's a trunk-mount rack, should not be too hard to figure out. Try a Google search for 'Thule 515-5033' and look at the IMAGES results to see examples of it mounted on a car.

Will my class 1 hitch support a hitch mounted bike rack and bikes?


perhaps. It is always best to check with the manufacturer of the bike rack you will be using. Some manufacturers do not recommend the use of their racks with class 1 hitches. Those that have bike racks to work with class 1 hitches typically have very specific weights, specifications, and may even limit the number of bikes allowable. Just remember, when calculating the weight of your load don't forget to add in the weight of the bike rack itself. B&W Trailer hitches are great for this job.

How do mount thule 515-0109 bike rack on suburban


It attaches to the factory roof rails if you have them. If your vehicle doesn't have those, then you need the gutter mount feet for your Thule rack.

Call a bike shop who sells thule bike racks and they can look it up for you. Or, better still the dealer you bought it from will be glad to mount it for you and teach you about it.

Mounting method


I know you said you don't want to remove the front wheel but here are a couple of options for that if you're interested: http://www.yakima.com/racks/bike-racks/p... http://www.hurricanecomponents.com/press... If you don't want to remove the front wheel then you'll need to use a type of rack that has the hook arm or cradles to hold the bike. Thule makes a version of the T2 for truck beds....it's pretty nice. Or just use a hitch rack....the T2, Yakima, and Saris are all pretty decent and it's a snap to load and unload the bikes. They're all in the $320-$360 range, but it's a good investment.,,,

Can i connect it on GMS Aveo?


Hitch bike racks should connect to any car with a hitch connection on the rear buttom.
Just remove the regular car hitch (if you have one) and replace it with the bike hitch rack.
Hope that it answer you question.
