The Saris Thelma 2 bike tray wheel cradles hold your bikes solidly and securely no matter how far you're traveling (for transporting kids bikes and bmx bikes with 20" wheels we recommend the Saris Thelma Juvenile hitch bike rack or Saris Thelma Juvenile Add-On accessory (not included; see accessory add-ons below).
