👤It was installed onto a 2011 Kia Soul and traveled 1,350 miles from New York to South Florida. We were 800-273-3217 I checked the straps after the first 200 miles. I was happy. Drove 940 miles the first day and had to retighten most of the straps before leaving. The bikes and rack were intact when they arrived in Florida. Most people had issues with the clips and pads scratching or damaging the paint on the car after reading a number of reviews. I secured the straps with rubber bands and covered the clips on them with a rubber glove. I wrapped the pads in rags and used rubber bands to secure them to the surfaces I cleaned. For reference, see the photo's. I would give this bike rack a perfect score. I would have given a 10 out of 10 if the clips were rubber coated and felt padding was provided.
👤I needed a way to move across the country with my bike. This thing works great. There are some minor hiccups here and there. If you're looking for a cheap solution for relocation or an every day road trip carrier, look no further. There is a This actually surprised me because it was well made and Sturdy. I was expecting cheap hollow metal tubing and the like but everything is made to last and appears to be built to last. It can be installed in under 2 minutes after a small learning curve. The quick lock rubber straps are great. Locks are well and rock about. There is a The clips that hold the rig in place are bare metal and will make quick work of your car's paint. Before installing, take an extra 5 minutes to cover the clips. On long road trips, the nylon straps can loosen. Re tighten every 100-150 miles to be safe. This will make it hard for you to see your license plate. I made it across the country without incident, but there is a small chance that a cop will ding you for it. If you want to avoid the problem completely, you can get a temp copy of your plate made and have it in your window or attached to the rig.
👤It failed on the interstate after being taken out for its first road trip. I didn't lose my bikes completely because some kind people waved me down. The quick release latch that is supposed to make it simple to store also made it easy to collapse during transport, as shown in the photos. There is a gash in the hole where the metal peg is supposed to stay. My wife's rear tire was destroyed when the upper support bar popped out of the housing while I was driving, dropping the bikes several feet. The extra weight of the bikes made the rubber straps rip. There is a Since I am back in town, there is no way for me to contact customer service here, because my trip occurred more than 30 days after purchase. There is a Customer Service decided to keep my money despite the manufacturer's defect because my van was not on the approved vehicle list. Avoid Allen sports. I wouldn't purchase again.
The best fit is for most of the top vehicles sold. The largest vehicle compatibility of any trunk rack on the market is 2 bikes, 35 lbs each. The treatment is called a VIP treatment. Premium bike hold downs are easy to use. Integrated strap management eliminates flapping straps. It was built with 100% recycled materials. Injection-molded arms and legs keep the rack strong for a long time. The best-in-class straps quickly attach the bike to the rack, the strongest frame on the market, and the Arc–based design separates bikes on different levels. Made in the USA is built with 100% recycled materials.
👤I have a new BMW X3 and had trouble finding a two bike rack that would fit in my car; finally found this one. There is a The folding is easy to install and holds the bikes well with minimum movement of the bikes in transit. There is a The wide, upper hooks that are placed on top of the tailgate leave dents in the car, but you can see them. If you're alone, there's a "technique" to install these six different straps and hooks. I got it done, but it was a challenge. There is a The internal surfaces of the hooks should be pad. To customers, I would suggest placing a thin piece of plastic or other material under the hooks that attach to the top of the tail gate in order to prevent damage to the car.
👤When it comes to assembling mechanical objects, I am a grade-A dolt. I was looking at the instructions printed at a plant in China. I am looking at the diagram and wondering why the assembly objects don't look the same. I damaged my new purchase because I assembled it wrong. I posted on Facebook about why nothing comes with decent instructions. I have never before transported bikes by rack, so I am not really an experienced bicyclist. I got this because I wanted to go somewhere I wouldn't have to cross traffic every few pedals and I was tired of biking with my daughter on the same old streets. There is a If there was a way to mess up the installation of this bike rack, I would have found it. I would have written a review about it. Even I was able to do it because it was so easy to do. I am a top-of-the-line fool, so I mean foolproof. There is a The rack consists of three legs that mount against the bumper and trunk of the car, which are easy to adjust and lock in place. The clips are attached to the trunk's top, side and bottom. There are three points for attaching each bicycle. I was able to put the rack in place. The rack was bouncing around too much on the test run because I didn't pull the side straps tight enough. I was able to fix that and our transporting went quite smoothly with the rack in place. The design elements of this rack. The straps for fastening the bicycles are very well designed and easy to manipulate and keep the bikes secure. I had a little trouble with the girl's bike on the first run, but I still managed to do things imperfectly. I figured that out by the second run. There is a The set of clips for attaching to the sides of the trunk is the most difficult part of the rack. It takes some work to make sure the straps are tight. The clips are difficult to get in and out of. After taking the rack off, I realized that the clips were marked "top," "side" and "BOTTOM." I reversed the side and top clips. It was hard to get those side clips out because they were the top clips. I will get that right next time. It's easy to transport and store. It is very easy to store in one's trunk. Quite happy with this!

👤This rack was the best choice I could have made for my car and bike. Excellent match. No damage was done to the car or bike. No loosened up, never had to be tightened. There was no wobble. There was no wheel spin. No bounce. Drove about 1400 miles from Los Angeles to Austin Texas. The wind was pushing the 18-wheelers in front of me. No matter. No issues. I've included some photos so you can see how I made small custom adjustments to fit the needs of my bike- auto combo, so if you're interested in some details, read on. There is a I decided to purchase this one from the Amazon warehouse after combing through the comments on all of the Bike Racks that I was considering, and visiting a few local Bike shops in my area. I had to wait for the return but it arrived 2 days before my departure. There was no manual on the rack but that was unimportant as the rack attachment is very easy to understand. How to securely apply the rack to my car was the challenge. There is a The nylon straps were long, the first thing I noticed was that. I thought I would shorten them eventually, but I was not able to. I put the top of the rack on the trunk and the bottom on the bumper because I thought it would be an approximate fit. The bars that held the bike were not straight. I wanted the bike to tilt into the car a bit and so I adjusted the rack several times until I got the angle I was looking for. The seat-n-post and the 2 pedals were removed from my bike in order to make it easier to ride. Buy a pedal wrench and it will save the car finish. No seat cleared my view. There is a I tightened the straps once I had the correct frame configuration. The top and bottom of the trunk's rubberized clamps stopped sliding when I tightened them a bit. I retightened the bike after I tested it. The bike was centered on the rack on the car. I had equal overhang on each side of the car. There is nothing to be concerned about when parking. There is a The strap at the very top between the two feet was confusing to me. What was the purpose of it? How to use it? I don't understand why it's location is so important. I decided to cut it off the top bar because I considered many options. I knew I could cut the strap from the bar without damaging it. I put the strap around the lower bar of the rack below the license plate in order to make it stable. The entire arrangement was pulled together into a strong, stable, shock resistant application. I put a bungee cord between the bumper and the Crank and put a large cable-lock under the rear of the car. There is a That's it. I hope the photos give you an explanation. If you take a little time to modify the bike-vehicle configuration, you can carry your bicycle safely and securely. note I've added 6 more photos, but they are not all correctly showing as one or more are sideways or upside down. I hope you can deal with them, because I can't seem to change them. Good luck.

👤It worked great for a while, but then the frame began to warp and today it did 55 on the highway. The bikes slid because of the failure of the padding, causing damage to my trunk and bumper. The frame is off center after that happened. I waited on the side of the road for a friend to come and take the bikes because I didn't trust the structural integrity. The product worked for a while and then stopped. It started failing after that. There is a If the company sees this, please reach out to me and send me a return shipping so I can inspect the product. Someone could have been killed if the bikes fell off because of a serious flaw in my frame.
👤The rack does the job. If you're not looking to spend a lot of money, get this. You can't trust the bad reviews on this product because they are handling it to the max. Really, broken straps? Or bikes falling? They are pulling hard to get broken straps. There are two bikes fallings. When you install your bikes, use your common sense. This product will work for you if you have common sense. If you want to get better grip on the trunk, put electrical tape on the two hooks that go on the trunk, and secure the straps so that the rack isn't loose or won't move up and down. The pedals don't touch my back bumper, so whoever claims this, you need to re- install the rack or your bike. I have two fixed gear single speed bikes. There wasn't a problem when I drove a short distance. I'm pretty sure this product can go further. Again, just be careful, don't manhandle this product, and use your common sense.
👤I put a couple of layers of duct tape where the clips go on to prevent scratching of the car, but otherwise, this baby worked out of the box. You need at least two tie downs to stop the pedals from spinning. There is a Also, note: There is zero security. The whole shootin' match could be taken off the car by anyone. Don't leave the car out of sight. Everything could be gone in 20 seconds with a blade and pickup. For this price, you can't go wrong with the more expensive ones.
👤This product is great. I was worried that the mount rack would not be effective or durable. I was wrong. There is a The rack is easy to install and works well. It's compatible with every car in existence. I was worried that my 2012 Ford Focus wouldn't be able to hold the weight of 2 bikes because it is a tiny vehicle. It worked out well. I drove from Ft. Wayne traveled all the way to Boston and back with this bike rack. It did a great job! I drove through a storm in the mountains and the rack was not phased. I love this rack and it's at an affordable price. I have attached some pictures of the rack to give you a better idea. I don't understand why someone would buy a rack that has so much to offer.

👤My wife would never have figured it out, but there are easier designs for more money. It will be easier the next time because the straps are mostly adjusted. I don't like the idea of metal clips on your car paint. I wouldn't use this on a new car. I covered the clips with gorilla tape to create some padding. The clips should be covered with a strong rubber to keep the paint from chipping.
👤It folds up. I put it back in the box when it wasn't used. I would suggest using scratch protectors with the hooks. There are some items on Amazon that are specifically made for this. This is smart for any brand of trunk rack and not a fault of this particular one. It's sturdy and well-built. It isn't damaged my car. It would be nice to have a clip for the extraneous strap that is left over when tightened, but it's easy to set up and put away. I wrap it around as I please. There is a I don't have any complaints about this model, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to take their bike places. I wish I'd gotten one sooner. It's nice to take my bike to the beach and ride, where it wouldn't be doable without this, because I live close to the beach. It makes a difference in my cycling experience.
👤I was a little annoyed that I got it a little over a week ago and the price has gone down. It seems like a good bike rack. It's very easy to install on my Santa Fe. I only have one bike on it. I don't know how it will work once we get three on there. The extra straps are needed to secure your bike. I was a little worried about scratching my car, but that doesn't seem to be an issue. I'm going to put tape on the metal clips to be safe. I like how easy it is to take my car off by myself. If you live in an area that doesn't feel safe, I would take it off and put it in your trunk. Someone could take it off and throw it in a car. If you live in an area that doesn't feel safe, I would take it off and put it in your trunk. Someone could take it off and throw it in their car.
👤It has been updated. It held up well for my trip to the park. I put a small food bag on each side belt to keep them from getting loose, but they still got loose. I adjusted the side belts at each stop. I found it difficult to put 3 bikes on the rack, as shown in the video clip. If you have the same size of bikes, you need to loose the bike handles to leave room for each other. I had to remove the pedals from the middle bike to fit it on the rack. I lean it the hard way because of the paint damage on the crank and fork. If you don't put padding between the bikes, they will rub on each other and cut into the metals. The product is usable, but it has room to improve in the area of ease of use. There is a I bought the S103. It would have been a solid product if the belt fastening was not flawed. I've used it a few times with one bike. It worked well and was very steady. I went for a drive on the highway with two bikes on it in order to get ready for my long trip to Yosemite with 3 bikes. The bikes started swinging after 10 miles. The side belts got loose when I pulled off the highway. The problem is with the belt. The shaking from the highway drive causes the bolts to get loose, they don't lock the belt in place. I will go to HD tomorrow to see if they have any belt lock clips that I can use to lock the belt in place. It's not acceptable to have to tighten the belt every 10 miles.

👤It's easy to set up and install, but once I mounted my bike on it, it didn't feel safe or sturdy. The straps that hold most of the bike's weight are supported by small metal clips with only tiny springs inside, which is a concern for me. It makes sense that they function as a quick open-close system to release the straps for easy and quick installation. The springs can give out with heavy bikes, so there is no additional tightener or closure to secure the straps. The bike rack would fall off the car if this happened. I think this is a major flaw. I bought plastic "tighteners" to add to the straps. It was very easy to add this above the metal clips, and I felt much better having this in addition to the metal clips. It's common sense that the manufacturer didn't provide something similar. There is a I like the design of the rack and it looks better than the most single bike rack I've seen, but I still think that the manufacturer should make the straps more secure and improve the design. I'm hesitant to carry my bike on this bike rack because it's heavy. The freeway is off limits. The safety of the strap clips is questionable, as if one is going to carry a bike with hands for hours, while the heavy duty rubber on the handles is questionable. The rubber protectors on the strap hooks that were supposed to protect the car paint were one of the reasons I decided to buy this rack. These are useless with my car. I had to hook them up to the bottom of the car because I couldn't slide the hooks into the thin opening on top of the car. I had to put some tape on the hooks to protect them. This modification is only for short term and short rides. The rubber protectors were useless because there was no paint to protect the car. The rubber coating is on the outside of the hooks and not inside where the paint rubbing and damage is most likely to occur. The hooks have rubber "dots" inside which are supposed to protect them. I don't think this will do any damage. There is a I don't use the rack daily so I can live with some of the issues, however if I were to use it daily I wouldn't like it. I don't think customers should buy a product and then have to look for ways to make it better or safer. It should meet the expectations right out of the box.
👤I decided to buy this bike rack after going back and forth on whether or not to buy a Thule rack that cost 3 times as much. I use it to haul two expensive bikes on freeways and winding mountain roads. The rack is very sturdy. It was easy to mount on the car, didn't slip or loosen even when the back of the car was open, and didn't scratch or damage my car at all. I was able to mount my women's bike without a cross-bar adapter because it held the bikes tight. The bike rack is better quality than the price suggests, and it's not just good quality for the price. It's a good rack.
When installing a rack, do not use rear wiper, it does not fit with the spoiler option. A. The Universal Fit bike hitch mount rack is compatible with a huge number of 4x4s, SUVs, pickups, trucks, vans and sedans with a standard two-inch receiver. The bike hitch rack is made of tough forged iron and e-coated, and it can support two bikes and up to 70 lbs of weight, and is safe to transport. PP cradles have high flexural strength, nylon strap has high tensile strength and bending rigidity, and 2 rear reflectors are designed for increased visibility on the road at night. The bike rack for tow hitch is anOptimized Design that folds down so you can easily access the rear of the vehicle, and it also folds up very small for storage. A heavy-duty anti-rattle stabilizer is included to prevent rattling or wobbling of your bike rack, and the "no wobble" bolt ensures that there is no wobbling during off-roading, and can be used to adjust your cradles.

👤Worth what it costs. This equipment doesn't cost as much as either of the two class equipment. There is a It is cheap. It's probably all you'd need. It is made from heavy stock. The tolerances are surprisingly tight and the holes match. It is more solid than it looks. The hardware includes a couple of open end wrenches and a key for assembly. The directions are written in English. Even if you have the time and the stock, this could not be made in the garage for the same price. There is a It is cheap. It is made of mild steel and in the assembly process, you will lose some paint. The inner and outer uprights will seize when those 2 things and a little water are present. Get your adjustment correct before the rust permanently joins those parts. I don't see stretch straps or plastic bits in the sun. The welds seem to be sturdy and ugly. It will take both hands and a strong back to install it alone since it is heavier than it looks, and the receiver may be underneath the bumper. The dimensions are in the description and it is bigger than it looks. If it will be permanently installed, think about where you will put it. The weight limit is something to pay attention to. Your insurance company will not be happy if your rack craters on the freeway because 80# means something may fail at 81#. There is a It is perfect for me. I have miles of paths and trails here in town, but I will only use them for a short distance each way to a parking lot or a trailhead. I don't need a vehicle for that. It is easy to put the receiver out of the Ranger and put it in the garage. I didn't want to strap a bike into the Ranger and then have it undone every time I want to ride. I did not want to spend more on a rack than I did on the bike.
👤Update #2 - May 2, 2020 - made sure the other straps were used for only 2 bikes. Since the update, the plastic mounts broke and I used the rack 2 twice. I only use a rack to take my bikes to the trails. Unless you want your bike to end up in the middle of an interstate, you won't use this product. Only been able to use track less than half dozen times, and one of the 6 rubber straps to secure the bikes snapped off along with the plastic piece attaching it to the rack. I own a lifted F150 with a 2" reciever. It's a perfect fit. The track's tilt feature allows me to lower my tailgate almost 100% of the way down, but I have to be careful not to put too much weight on it. The tailgate is not moving. There is a I can't give an honest answer because I haven't had a chance to check it out, but I will update if needed later.

👤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.
It installs in seconds. The insert fits either 1 1/2 or 2 inch receiver hitches. A quick install hitch secures and tightens a rack inside of a receiver hitch. When not in use, the arms fold out of the way and the rack tilts back. Individual tie downs are used to protect bicycles. Accommodates a wide range of bicycle frame designs. Allen's warranty doesn't cover third-party sellers.
👤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.

👤I bought this item in the year of 2013. I have used it twice since that time. The carrier malfunctioned the second time I used it because the buttons that snap into place to hold the bike rack were missing. I contacted Allen to see if he could help. They said that since the pins were there when you purchased the carrier, this wouldn't be a manufacturing or material defect. This wouldn't be covered under warranty. Allen is choosing not to honor its lifetime warranty because the pins were not installed properly in order to prevent this type of thing from happening. Thank you for the information. I will keep this in mind when I recommend products to others. There is a I am telling everyone that Allen does not stand by their lifetime warranty, and that you would be better off spending your money on equipment from a better company.
👤There are good and bad points to this bike rack. It is very easy to set up. It folds down to nothing. It was very easy for my daughter to use on her own. It isn't the most well-equipped rack.

👤When I bought the bike rack, I thought it would be the perfect accessory for transporting my two bikes from Northern California to Washington. I prepared white duct tape to cover the metal clips and protect the paint on my car after reading reviews about them. The first leg of the trip took only an hour and a half. I thought I needed to tighten it even more as I noticed a small wobble during the drive but the wind was high and it was my first time putting it on the car. When I arrived at my destination, I would make the adjustments that I had been warned about. The cause of the wobble was that one of the rubber stabilizing pads fell off and the metal tube underneath chewed the paint off of my car. I have invested in a Thule and am returning it. I wish I'd made this choice the first time. I'm glad I have touch up paint to protect the car from rust since it can happen in some spots.
👤It works great on our car. I wish they had a protective coating on the metal hooks that sit on the car. I put some cloth between them and the paint.
