    FYI, I purchased the Thule 934 Pro bike rack from Performance Bicycle last week for $200 instead of the Tesla rack for $500 and it works great on my Model X. You can also open the hatch without having to tip the rack down. The backup sensors flip out when backing up but that is to be expected.

    Prefer tray racks vs holding bikes by top tube, had too many nice road bikes damaged on trips using the top tube racks. If I'm solo I prefer putting bike in the vehicle.

    Just to be clear, you're saying you can open the back hatch with no problem, even when bikes are on the rack? Is that correct?

    Yes, because with this type of rack you can manually tilt it away from the vehicle. I've owned a 5-bike Thule that did this. When you have 3 or more bikes on the rack, it can be difficult to lift the rack back up.

    He was saying it could open without tilting it down. That's the question I'm hoping to clarify.
