I put them on a Thule on top of the truck. Works great!

You can put a receiver on the back for a bike rack, but it has to be beefed up. You can't just use the bumper, as shown in other post's pics.

Here's mine, installed by my dealer. I've used it 3 seasons, no issues.

That looks like what I welded onto my Titanium and it worked great for 5 years.
But on my ultralight Flagstaff, I have concerns that if I take off the underbelly and go to the frame, the frame wouldn't be able to handle it.

If the spare is on the bumper, then you can't safely

add more weight to it. I should have mentioned I am buying a Super lite Flagstaff 5th. I have read our forums that show twisted frames and even a sticker under the bumper, that warns against adding anything to the bumper.....

I am not sure which units have the bumper warning sign....

Often makes me wonder why doesn't the bumper break from all that spare tire weight?? Tire/wheel and bracket is heavy. New bikes are lighter.
