👤I like this back rack. It came in a big box with well written instructions and assembly went with a hitch. That's right. There are three locks on this rack, one on each bike center tube hook and one on the hitch pin. If you don't have any bikes, it can be folded up on the car. I use a regular hitch pin that doesn't need to be screwed in and the rack feels really solid going down the road. Highly recommended.

👤It had everything I was looking for, and it didn't cost me more than $400, which was great. I wanted a rack for my bike. My E-bike is 60 lbs. and most rack couldn't carry it over 35 lbs. You would have to buy a tray just for 4 tires to get the $400 that the racks had. The price is unbeatable for what you get and everything about this carrier is exactly what I was looking for. Also works well. I'm confident that I'll be able to carring my bikes anywhere.

👤I needed a bike rack since the better trails and roads are an hour or so away from home. I was initially shocked by the high prices of bike Racks on the market such as the $750 Thule aluminum & plastic carrier. There is a All load bearing parts are steel and heavy duty. The bike is hanging from the top tube rather than sitting securely on the bike wheels. The bike frame is secured with a hook. There is a Lift gate access and easy loading are possible with the tilt feature. There is a The construction is well designed. There is a If you only have one bike, you don't need to use a lot of wheel carriers. There are pros and cons. There are straps on the wheel that are designed to prevent any bounce and the hook that holds the bike down. I already had better and heavier duty motorcycle wheel tie-down straps that would hold on to the bike in the event of a catastrophic failure of the hook, which is why they were a bit short for 4 tires. There is a This rack was very pleased with itself. I think it's the best for the price and features.

👤This is a let down. Everyone likes this rack. The issue I had with the stand was that it sits at a 100-115 degree angle towards the back of the car not allowing a second bike to fit without the handle bar edging the back window of my van. It's crazy. I was going to buy a 7 inch hitch extension to seat the bikes further out from the window. There is a But... On my second local outing with my bike, the turn knob broke free and I didn't turn the screw because I was spinning freely. I had to disassemble my bike to get it out from under the arm which held it. Why was it lucky? The second bike is locked into a lower point of contact because the knob that broke is on the upper arm. The lower arm is trapped by the upper arm. I would have to cut the metal to get the second bike out. There is a There is a problem with PLASTIC. It's never a good idea to make anything that requires tightening and securing plastic. The plastic being so open to the environment and in a vital point of usage will cause the racks to be stripped out or rotted within 2 years. Everyone will have an incident like this, and it will happen to them later on. The rack is smart and people are giving great reviews. They will not be happy later. There is a It was disappointing to say the least. The rack is poorly constructed and designed.

2. Thule Apex Bike Hitch Rack

Thule Apex Bike Hitch Rack

The signature bottle opener from the company lets you enjoy a cold one after a ride. Premium hanging hitch bike rack. The bike is stable and has anti-sway cradles. Bike contact is prevented by anti-sway cradles. The lock on the cable lock keeps the bike safe. The bike arms fold down when not in use. The rear of the vehicle access is where the rack tilts down. It's ideal for a wide variety of bike sizes.

Brand: Thule

👤We used it as described. It was suggested that it had less weight on it. It broke for no reason. There were no bumps on the road. It wasn't overload. It's a bunch of bikes. There were two child bikes on there. This is not good quality. We have reached out to the company many times but have not received a response.

👤Although I like the product of the HoldUp 2 + 2-bike extender, it is very heavy to set up and put away. I was excited to try out the 5-bike rack because I had always wanted a 4-person bike carrier that would not break my back. Installation guide was clear to follow, and it was even more light than the HoldUp 2 when you factor in the 2-bike extender. If you remove the lock from its housing, you can only see the key number on the side of the lock. The knob mechanism that tightens the rack within the hitch can be a bit confusing for some. You can tighten or loosen the rack if you turn the knob when you put the key in. While you have the key in the lock, it may inadvertently turn into the lock position because your key chain may have enough weight to turn the key while you're turning the knob. I didn't understand why I couldn't tighten the knob further or why I was able to loosen the rack while I thought the knob was locked. There is a If this description doesn't make sense to you, you need to check your key unlock position while turning the knob to make sure it doesn't inadvertently lock up. The knob can be turned if it is locked, but the rack won't loosen so it can't be stolen. In unlocked position, the knob becomes harder to tighten as it strengthens within the hitch. If I remember correctly, the knob mechanism to tighten/loosen the rack within the hitch must be checked every few hours or miles. It's just another thing to remember when you are on a road trip, as Thule says that this is just a safety precaution. This comparison may be unfair because the Apex rack is not the same style as the Yakima HoldUp. It's like comparing apples to oranges. Pros and Cons of both styles will hopefully help you make a better informed decision on which style works best for you, as I am able to share my experience from those two products. There is a The knob mechanism is designed to make it easier to connect/disconnect the rack to/from the hitch, but that convenience could come at the cost of potentially having the rack fall out of the hitch.

Brand: Allen Sports

👤I had a bike rack that failed on my first drive. I did not go over 60 mph on one of the bent down bars. They were not helpful when I contacted them. The won't help resolve the issue. They won't sell me replacement parts. They said it was a liability. Allen Sports customer service issues are similar to what other reviewers have said about them. Stay away from the bike rack. Adult bikes should not break a bike rack. I need your help to resolve this issue and turn this bad experience around. I would be happy to update this review.

👤I thought I should write a review for the Allen bike rack that we purchased 3 years ago. It's aging well and handling the constant sun exposure very well, so look at my pictures to see how well it's doing. We leave the bike rack on all year long. The red handle has finally succumbed to the sun and a piece broke off recently, but it hasn't affected the function of the item. We ride our bikes three times a week. The hatch door of the SUV is used a lot for loading groceries, gear, etc. During the snow season, we use the bike rack with the ski/board rack. Everything is holding up well. I like the simplicity of the bike rack. I like that it doesn't have seat-tube stabilizers, they always got in the way when I took my bikes off and on with previous racks. If you want to keep your bikes out of the air during the car's braking and acceleration, you can leave a bungee cord in the vehicle and use it to put the bikes on the rack. It's easy. The top swing arm has a little play on the down position so you can hear it clanking when you accelerate from a stop light. There is a This is an easy 5 star rating from me. Feel free to ask any questions you have.

👤I would like to give this a 5 star rating. But... The bike rack is of the highest quality. We can easily and securely haul two bikes. The lock broke when we locked the mount into place. The knob will not loosen or tighten. It's been stuck on the back of my SUV for a long time. Allen Sports has reached out to us. Allen Sports will return our calls. We haven't received any call backs. If you pay the extra money, you can get a Thule brand. I think they have better quality and customer service. I would have liked to have gotten a Thule.

👤If it weren't for the locking version, this would be a 5 star review. If you only need to remove one bolt to lock the hitch, you can take the bikes. You will still have the hitch receiver. The rest will be gone. I used the safety chain slots on the hitch after buying a chain and lock. You can run a chain through the bike.

4. Yakima FullSwing Hitch Mount Capacity

Yakima FullSwing Hitch Mount Capacity

Their Lifetime Warranty is covered by your back guarantee. It's possible to carry up to four bikes, but some mountain, women's and kids' bikes require the TubeTop accessory. The maximum weight for a bike. Swing away design allows you to access your car's trunk or hatch with the bikes loaded, and ZipStrips secure the bikes to the rack. Protect your bike with fully padded arms that fold down when not in use. Easy to install and use: quick and easy assembly; tool-free installation with locking SpeedKnob; AutoPin automatically positions and secures the rack to the hitch and receiver. The locks on your bikes and rack are secured with the same key system.

Brand: Yakima

👤I chose the FullSwing Premium Hitch-Mast Bike Rack because it was new and improved, a quick replacement for last year's model, which was called the Swing Daddy, and was offered for $100 less. The 2008 Swing Daddy received a low rating because they removed the bike lock and charged $49 as an add-on. If you need proof, see reviews. I was debating over the 2008 Swing Daddy and the new one which came out a few weeks ago, and the main reason for my hesitation in buying the new one was the price. I had to prove to myself that the extra $100-150 over previous models was worth it. I am sharing my experience because at the time of purchase there were no reviews or videos for this model. The improvements proved to be worthwhile and I went with the new model. It performs incredibly well and is designed better. One day after a 750 mile road trip, I'm writing a review. I'm convinced that I made the right decision and I'm happy with my purchase. As you decide what's best for you, I hope my feedback is helpful. There is a My research was based on online reviews, videos and a visit to my local bike shop, which carried both the 2008 and 2013 models. I will start with the improvements over prior models. Installation is easy. The 2008 model requires a nut and bold installation, which is something most of us are used to. The models in question have a slide and click autopin and knob, and a push button release to remove the rack. The twist knob is red and easy to use. The built in key lock allows you to prevent removal by disengaging the twist to tighten/loosen handle control. It works well and is convenient. Unlike most people who leave their bike rack attached because it's inconvenient to remove, I have a quick and easy way to remove it. It's one of the top advantages over the 2008 model. It's the main reason to upgrade or go for the newer model. 2. The bike is secured to the rack with the ratchet style binding. The 2008 model has a locking system that is more convenient than the older model's rubber straps, which need to be tugged and stretched on. You can watch the videos for both the model and the swing daddy. The video was not out yet, so I decided it was worth the convenience of the design. The new design is worth the upgrade. It's very easy and quick. The bike lock is integrated. There is a wire that can be pulled out of the mast and locked in the far end of the rack. Push and click to lock and a simple key turn to release. I can't believe they didn't include this in last year's model since the prior 2008 model included an integrated lock. 4. The design is all black with red accents. I'm more interested in function and less in form. I almost bought the 2008 model because it matches my SUV and had good reviews. I don't need a hitch to look good and the 2008 model looks the same as most bike racks. The new design hides the hinges and welds and looks good. It's very attractive and sharp. It was not a requirement for me to get this bonus. There are other benefits to this rack. 1. The user interaction points are clearly marked by the red plastic parts. They can either lock or open the hitch. 2. The swing away design allows you to get to the back of your vehicle. It's a life saver. Our last trip left me opening and closing the back hitch about 20 times a day, and that's no exaggeration, I have a family. 3. I didn't notice that the full swing has two pivot points, and as a result, I was unable to clear the back gate of my SUV. You can get your bikes out of the way and lock them in place with the help of the mast and hinge. The fact that it locks is a huge benefit when parked on a hill, and I had plenty of clearance. 4. It was a blessing to ship. Delivery is nothing beats it. The rack is strong and big. The unit inside was in perfect condition, even though my box was damaged. 5. Assembly is easy. The unit arrives in two parts. The base and mast. The mast is secured with a nut and bolt. I attached it to the car so I had to screw it in. If I were to do it again, I would try to attach the mast to the car before attaching it to the hitch. 6. The bike rack is strong. We drove 750 miles and the bikes did not move or sway. I am very impressed. 7. I have not used the bottle opener, but it is there. The FullSwing only works with two hitches. There are 9. The "swing away" feature of the trunk allows us to access it without removing the bikes. If I had not purchased anything else, I would have lost it. 10. It was built to last. I bought this rack for a lifetime of use. I look forward to using it a lot. 11. Purchase is protected by a lifetime warranty. I did not like it. The mast's label had some wrinkling in it. It didn't look right. I removed the decals. 2. I don't like the idea of random people using my bike rack to open a beer bottle, but I suppose they would have to be Yakima hitch owners to know about it. 3. The lock is short. It's long enough to lock the bike frames to the rack. 4. The warranty does not cover oxidation. Woman's bikes. I knew I needed the tube top frame adapter when I bought this rack. It's important that a woman's bike or child's bike has an accessory to use this rack. It's an additional item and it's required. Add on items. The bikes can be secured with hook and loop straps. I use a pack of 4 to reduce the movement of bike pedals. I'm happy I bought them. There are 3 suggestions. The bike lock has a key. I use a bike lock. It's not required, but it's good to know that the wheels are locked to the frame. If the bike is left on the rack overnight, I remove valuables from it. There is a In conclusion. The rest is below the model. I haven't seen any other bike rack with the same function and form as the one from Yakima. There are three reasons to consider this model, the easiest to install hitch, easy to use system for "strapping" bikes and superior design. We are very happy with our purchase. The price difference was justified because we wanted something that would last a lifetime. We are excited to be able to ride our bikes wherever we go.

5. Destination Lightweight 4 Bike Hitch Rack

This lightweight rack has a max tire width of 3 and a max wheelbase of 48.

Brand: Hollywood Racks

👤I'm confident that this rack will have its share of reviews describing disastrous outcomes during transport, and I'm sure that it will do so as well. There is a Common sense and human intervention are required to prevent accidents from happening when using a rack. I believe failure can be attributed to one or more of the following. The rack was not being used for its intended purpose. The RV/Trailer 2 was installed. There was a lack of inspection prior to the transport. The bike rack is connected to the hitch. The rack should have no failures given that you take appropriate measures to address 1 and 2. There is no way for the pin to loosen on its own, so the pin is secured with an R-clip/cotter pin. The straps on any rack are guaranteed to break. Each bike on this rack is secured with a strap, tire and frame at the same time. There is a The bike will remain on the rack if one strap breaks. I wanted a rack that could transport 4 bikes with a minimal failure rate and this rack seems to be the best. I have 3 adult bikes and a youth bike. The other bonus features such as the weight and ease of assembly have already been mentioned in posts as has the downside to the rack in that it's relatively easy to take the entire rack with a few tools as the locking mechanism preventing this is relatively weak.

👤I have been a biker for the last 35 years and started with upright roof mounts, fork mount roof mounts, and platform hitch racks. The easiest platform rack to use is hands down. The HR Sportrider 2 is a great rack, but it doesn't fit all frame types very well. I bought a brand new platform rack that was heavy and awkward to install and remove, but it was also as solid as it could be. I decided to try it out because of the low cost. There is a I am now all smiles. The rack is only 20 pounds. I don't have to break my back installing and removing it. There is a Sometimes I leave it on the car for a ride the next day, and it folds up flat against the vehicle. There is a Hitch lock and key is an optional accessory which I never understood why locking your rack from theft would be an option. It works on any frame size, even bikes with fenders. There is a The bike is mounted to the rack with no jumping because of the 3 mounting points. There is a This rack is 1/3 the cost of my heavy duty platform rack and does everything just as well. There is a This is a viable contender if you are hesitant to spend $500 on a bike rack.

👤I needed a 3-bike rack and found this one from a Thule Pro2. This rack is not as good as a Thule or a Yakima. I bought it even though it was available. Double-checking the instructions is a must when assembling it. It is easy to mix up the inner and outer sections. The bolts that hold them down are cheap, and tend to strip. First, get everything in the right place, then snug the bolts. The rack on the car is very secure. There is a little bounce but every rack has that. There is a It will hold four mountain bikes. The loading and securing of them is different than the Thule. You have to be precise with placement, pedal position, centering, and angle the frame strap just right. I'm sure it will get easier with practice, but the Thule was just slap it in and go. It takes a while. The bikes were secure after a long trip. The rack does its job. There are better and worse racks out there. If the directions were clearer, I would give it a star.

6. Yakima FullTilt Tilting Hanging Capacity

Yakima FullTilt Tilting Hanging Capacity

You should protect your gear. Add SKS. The included 9mm QR Locking Skewer can be used to secure your bike to the rack and the vehicle.

Protect your gear with a tool-free locking SpeedKnob and included cable lock system.

Brand: Yakima

👤It was purchased in the year 2014). The piece is very sturdy and easy to use. It's hard to get 5 bikes on it, but it's hard to reach the advertised capacity. It was more complicated to fit into the hitch because of the weight. The biggest problem is that you have to bend the main bar downward to open the minivan. It's difficult to work this latch, it's an important joint, used all the time, at a high pressure point, and it's made of flimsy plastic. I didn't think it would fail 15 months after purchase, but it did. A friend of ours snapped our car off because he couldn't get the latch to work and he couldn't lower the post after we showed him how to do it. We're stuck in a fix because we can't open the rear of our car. This is a design flaw that needs to be fixed. The local bike shop was surprised to see the critical pressure bearing latch made of plastic.

👤It was received a month ago. The back of our vehicle has become a semi-permanent fixture since that time. We have used it many times to carry my wife's and my bike. The loading and unloading of the bikes is painless. The straps are easy to clip in and out of. We like the fact that we can fold the rack down and tilt it out to get to the lift gate without having to remove the rack from the car. It's easy to install in the hitch, but the first time I put it on the car, it wouldn't fit. I didn't get it in because I didn't remove the locking knob enough. The rack is too high for my wife to comfortably lift her bike on it, but she is getting used to it. We tried to load all the bikes on the rack for the first time yesterday. We were able to fit our two road bikes, two mountain bikes and my daughter's 7 speed kid's Raleigh. It was a bit frightening going down the highway as there was a lot of bounce to the rack when it had that much weight on it. We made it there without any damage to the car, bikes or rack, so I assume it's by design. It will take some getting used to so that I don't watch the mirror constantly. It is difficult to get the security locking cable locked into place through the bikes, but it is a nice inclusion. The only problem is that one of the locking strap cleats lost it's thumb release latch and so I'm getting a new one. The rack is only a month old and has not been off of the car since we bought it. I'm not too concerned because the rack has a limited lifetime warranty, but I will have to look at the overall longevity of the rack. The family rack is definitely recommendable, but with some caveat. There is a The Heavy Duty easy to install and use does fit 5 bikes. There is a When fully loaded, the cleat broke a lot of the bounce. There is a Sits high for short people. The security cable is short for me.

👤The best! This is the best bike rack I have ever owned. I used to have a bike rack that held 2 bikes, but it was hard to get them on and off. The rack is great and takes care of that problem. The rack is high quality and well made, and the assembly is very simple. You can't beat the price. It takes less than 60 seconds to put the bikes on this rack. The feature that allows the rack to lay down is my favorite. The tailgate can be put down all the way to make it easy to get in.

There is a plate that bolts down to prevent the rack from vibrating. There is a The unit is sturdy and light. I use a locking pin to make sure the rack isn't stolen. A good investment for my bike.

👤This is a great product. It works better if your adapter sticks out a few inches. The photo of mine is only 1/2 inch. I had to put it on backwards. Not as suggested. This is not a fault of the product. I'm just making sure you know that it works better if you stick out a bit more.

👤I needed a bike rack heavy enough to carry two e- bikes. I put it together and I am a female. My bikes don't affect it at all because it's so heavy duty. The bikes are not enough to discourage me because they are difficult to put on. The main reason is that they have battery holders in the way of the clamps that hold it in place.

Brand: Retrospec

👤I bought this bike rack to haul my children's bikes. The structure on one of the bike racks didn't hold up during our trip, I bought two to accommodate all the bikes. The bikes were almost drug the road because of the bent metal tubing that was inserted into the reese hitch reciever. I had four bikes on the rack. I was happy to get back from our trip. I noticed that the metal was bent when I removed the rack. Before buying this product, do your research, there has to be better ones than these. I will start shopping for a better product now that I know what I want.

👤2nd road trip with only 3 older youth, one arm of the rack bent, and bikes slid down against each other, causing damage to the bikes.

👤To fit all bikes on the rack, the bike cradles have to be closed with an elaborate game. The cables had to be adjusted because they got pulled on while getting the bikes to fit on the rack. I would not recommend placing 5 bikes.

👤It looks like it is easy to assemble. Will try it on the road. I put 2 washers in to eliminate the wabbling. Will see all the bikes.

👤I have to put a bike in the back of my truck because not all my bikes fit.

👤After our second trip, one of the support bars was bent down at least 2 inches and the bikes were all dangling.

👤It took a long time to install in the highlander, but it worked out in the end. It got rusted after a few months.

👤It is a decent bike rack. There is no problem with the 4 bikes that are held.

👤The rack was easy to assemble. It can be adjusted for up to 5 bikes. It is always good to have more room for my bikes. The frame is strong. You should buy straps for the front of your bike tire if you want to avoid movement. It was great for the price. The hitch has a Bolt provided to it. I prefer a lock because I can take it off quicker. Excellent rack!

👤No me fije, no me para fijar a la camioneta. Tuve agrandarlo. También la tornillera de uno de los sujetadores. De ah!

👤The metal tabs on the 5 bike rack broke and the bikes crashed into the road, costing $350 in damage.

9. Venzo Bicycle Platform Style Carrier

Venzo Bicycle Platform Style Carrier

Safety is the first priority. Driving, pulling, vibrating and swinging are some of the tests that the rack passed.

👤The bike rack is great. I don't give reviews but this deserves one. A family of bikers. I used a top rack before but it got harder to lift 4 bikes as they get bigger. It is very strong and easy to use. I looked at many before picking this one. Excellent purchase and highly recommend. Thanks.

👤There was a review that said there was a lot of movement with this bike rack. The hitch was not the rack. The rack is sturdy. It does not fold up.

👤The rack does what it should but there are some things that need to be improved. I'm not able to securely lock it to the hitch because the screw connecting it to the rack is locked. It seems like there is a missing mechanism to get things tight. 2. The metal ends have plastic caps. I had to glue things together. 3. The internal paint is missing and the metal is rusted. The metal parts are already rusted. There is a The rack is good for the price, but lacks some nice features. This isn't a bad deal if you can live without bikes and secure locking.

👤There are a lot of different names for this rack. It is strong. The bike won't leave the house. The 2in hitch has a screw instead of a pin clip. There is no way to install a hitch pin lock. This screw was missing from my order. I contacted the seller and waited for a response. There is a The bar that holds the bike frame is great but anyone can loosen it. The locking knobs on this bike rack are similar to those on other bike racks. I thought I could replace the existing locking knobs but they don't fit. The threaded bolt was too small. The instructions for assembly were vague. There is a If you don't want to leave the bikes unattended, it is a great bike rack.

👤I bought this rack to carry my fat tire bikes. The loops that the tires rest in are not wide enough for fat tires to rest in. The bike tires are fine in the loops. My fat tire bike tires are too wide to rest in the loops, they ride more like on top of the loops. I would not have bought this rack if I had known this. Extra straps were added for my bikes. I will try to bend the tire loops so they are a bit wider. It is an excellent rack. You don't carry fat tire bikes.

👤There are a lot of great features on this rack. There are security features that lock the rack to your car and lock the bikes to the rack. Everything can be changed. I was able to get the bikes to fit together without touching them. It looks great when you fold it up against the car.

👤I have spent over $500 on Yakima and Thule rack and I use them 3-4 times a week. I decided to give the rack a try because I was impressed by the wall mount from the Vibrelli. It arrived on Thursday and I was impressed with the quality and features that I had 2 bikes on the back, each worth more than my car, doing a 300 mile drive for a weekend of riding and racing with friends. I put this thing through hell this weekend and it is now my primary rack. No problem with fat tires. No problem with rough fire roads. I-95 and 85 MPH, no problem, last minute repairs to your rig before go time, no problem. I only had to use the dropper on one of the 2 MTBs. This thing is solid. It's easy. It took about 20 minutes to assemble, with good instructions and quality materials. I would recommend putting your money in the bike. Unless you have a brand name piece of jewelry hanging off the back of your vehicle. I will be posting a video soon.

👤I replaced my roof-mounted bike rack with a hitch-mounted one and I am very happy. Overall quality is great. The instructions and how-to video made assembling the rack easy. My fat tire bike and road bike fit on the rack. You can access the truck with a press of the foot. The included cable lock and rubber pads are some of the things that really impressed me. Cyclists designed this. Would definitely recommend.

👤It took me a couple of days to figure out what type of bike rack I wanted. I looked at price, brands, reviews, aesthetic design, weight, and features. The features of the most recent and expensive ones were all present in the bike rack that I came across. I was not sure if it had only one review. It was put into the market recently. I think it's perfect for my needs, especially the aesthetic ones, there are some expensive racks that look bad when you leave them on, and they might obstruct the license plate and rear camera view. The 2 bike tray style rack was very nice. The parts and finish of the product look very good and the price is fair, as a Quality Manager I can tell. Positive reviews will start to show up soon, as it will soon be one of the most popular bike racks.

👤Wow. I'm new to the bike rack market. My wife has a 15lb rock Hopper and I have a 60lb ebike. We're going to get another ebike soon. A Kuat or Thule is just so expensive, because we just installed a hitch on our outback. I understand. They're very nice. Then I came across a book. I'm very happy. It is incredibly sturdy. It was easy to use. For me. There are multiple locking features, sold to me. You can save a few hundred dollars and support a good cause. I bet you will also love this rack.

👤This product held up great after traveling over 9000 miles with 5 adult bikes on the back. I'm definitely a fan. The bikes fit. I did it without using the spokes of other wheels. It can't hold 5 bikes. There is a The key is to modify the bikes' orientation. They can't go straight left and right. They need to be stacked at different angles. That's why the straps can move. There is a We need a 5-bike rack for our RV trip this summer. The Allen 4-bike rack was awesome. It took me a while to figure out how to fit all the bikes, but I made myself a video on how to hook them up, so it's easy to do each time we move. The attached pictures show how I put each bike on, the orientation, and how well they fit together. There is a There are two drawbacks. The back wall of our RV was hit by the handle bar of the first bike. We will have to get a cushion to keep the handle from scratching. The first bike attachment is a little awkward. If you want to get the bike on the strap holder, you have to pivot the unit away from the vehicle and pull the tilt pin. You would strap on the bike and then replace the locking pin on the unit. It's just weird. This is not an issue because I install my bike differently. There is a It is possible to securely get all 5 bikes on the rack, tied down, and not have them mash each other. There is a I will update my comments if I have issues after 2 months. Two thumbs up.

👤The bike rack is sturdy. I like how the mounts fit your bike. The hitch locking mechanism seems to work well. The no tools hitch install is awesome. There is a There are a number of quick release features on the rack. It's nice to tilt back to get the hatback. The quick release to lower the arms is ridiculous. The set up is really nice when the arms of the rack are out. As the arms are raised, everything clicks into place. I like this feature. I only gave it 3 starts because of this. The arms of the rack are lowered so they don't stick out, and they sound like a wind chime. The arms don't have a second set of holes for them to lock in place and hold them steady when they are down. They clank at the movement of the car. This is a rediculous over sight that could be fixed with a simple set of pin holes. It is hard for me to believe that this has been through any testing phase or feedback phase without this coming up again and again. It's disappointing to see a bike rack that has a glaring mistake in its design. I need a strap or bungee cord to keep it from driving me crazy. A good bike rack is the only thing else.
