Has anyone tried the Volvo (or thule or any other ) European bike rack that clamps on a tow ball, on an American 2 inch tow ball?

These racks look great but I hate to import one if it won’t work.

Does anybody have any first hand experience?

I have a v90 with the retractable 2 inch Towbar so I can’t use a receiver bike rack.

I'd like to know the same. Volvo now has a rack that fits over the ball, but it's not very heavy. Holds bikes by the top bar, rather than a wheel trough and clamp.

Bump. Does anybody know where to get the fix4bike attachments that are supposed to be available on this rack?

I've been in contact with the manufacturer-- Bosal. The carrier I'm hunting for is the Traveller 2 with the Fixmatic hitch, which uses the pins below the ball to stabilize the carrier. Bosal says it's not cleared for use in the US nor the UK. Apparently, Mercedes Benz is now also using the Bosal hidden hitch as well.

The carrier is also sold under the name "oris." Appears at this point that it has to be ordered thru a German car dealer!
