👤We needed a bike rack to get into mountain biking. The features that I have not seen before make this rack convenient to use. There is a Most of the metal was very thick and heavy duty. Sturdy and strong. The free hitch stabilizer means very little wiggle. When not in use, folds compactly. The tailgate can be adjusted to open without bikes. There is a There are rubber latches for attaching bikes. A very good deal. There is a The rubber is a bit stiff at first, but becomes easier to work with after a few uses.
👤Assembly was easy. The product is well made. We took four bikes on a trip and drove over 600 miles. The bikes weigh 95 lbs. This is rated at 140. There is a ThePivot function to utilize tailgate is nice and works as designed, the straps are easy to use, and it came with an extra replacement strap. The arms seemed to be too short. The brackets for the last bike were very close to the end of the tubes, meaning bikes were crowded on each other. If you care about the finish of your bikes, you should probably use tape or something similar to protect them from rubbing. The loop for the pivot pin retaining wire came loose after a few uses. See the photo. This was being used in a normal way. This shows a rush in the manufacturing process. It's easy to crimp this. I am confident I can fix it with a pair of pliers in about 10 seconds, but it was a small annoyance after so little use. It doesn't make the product non-functional as a bike rack. Attaching the bike rack to the hitch receiver requires a nut and bolt. There was not enough room for the bolt head to be tightened. I don't think most people will install a bike rack to their hitch, so a hitch pin is more appropriate and should be supplied. I bought a locking hitch pin. It's harder for someone to remove the rack. I was always aware of it when we went over speed bumps and rough roads with this type of rack. It was difficult to tell if there was flex in the rack or if it was just moving with the vehicle. I checked the welds when we got home. There is a This is a good product.
👤The entire top section bent downward when I traveled 65 miles. After several weeks, the company sent me a new top section. I took a 23 mile trip and the top broke, the rubber straps broke at 65 miles an hour, and the green wheels were smashed all over the interstate. If you don't have money to spend, don't buy this company. If you have to, throw the bills out the window so the people following you don't kill the family. I will never buy anything from this brand again. I don't want a free replacement, I threw it in the scrap metal pile. Trash is dangerous. The company contacted me and gave me a full refund after reading my review. The strings were attached to the bottom line. They sent me something and I copy and pasted it. There is a Jody, I'm here. Thanks for your reply, please check it in your account, I have full refunds for you. Can you help me revise your review? This is important for our store and I need your help. We will keep improving the product quality. I am so sorry for the situation again. This was next after the revised review. There is a Jody, I'm here. Sorry to bother you. Is it possible to change the review star to 4 or 5 stars? This is very important for our store and I would like to not talk about the refund or revise the review content. There is a I need your help.

👤It is difficult to get the bike on and close the clips. The plastic clip broke the first time we used it. It is secure, but not usable when it is difficult to open and the plastic breaks easily.
👤Took 30 minutes to mount the bikes. The bikes on this rack do not fit on the tension bars. The locking tabs broke on second use. This product is garbage. Never buying again.
👤I don't like to put my expensive electric bicycle inside the car because it can damage and break parts while I'm driving, and I don't like to leave it in the car for long. There is a I don't have any room for passengers or other luggage because the seats are folded down so much. I should have purchased a bike rack a long time ago. There is a It's small and flat, so it doesn't take much room for storage. I didn't know that the liftgate door on my SUV had grooves around it where the bike rake can hang on to. You pull the strap around the liftgate door and then you put it around the liftgate door. It took some time to figure it out. It was straight forward the second and third time around. It held my electric bike securely while I was on my way to my destination. Very happy with the purchase.

👤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.

👤My fiancée and I paid off our bike shop loan after buying a bike rack. I was a bit scared of buying a bike rack for our sedan since it's new, and in people's reviews, they show pictures of some racks that have made marks on their vehicles. This product is notALLEN SPORTS. The bikes were being held strong. We drove in the freeway and on the streets and the bikes did not damage our vehicle. The drive took 137 miles. It can fit 3 bikes. When you load the bikes onto the rack, make sure they face the same way. There are rails for each bike in the rack.
👤Just returned from a trip to South Carolina and back. It was cheaper and quicker to have a hitch put on my car. It worked. Zero issues. I put it on the back of the van in less than two minutes. It is very easy to remove it. This product is easy to use, durable and did not leave any marks on my car. Both bikes are in good shape. We removed the two front wheels of our bikes and mounted them facing opposite directions in order to balance their weight and keep the handle bars from touching. Excellent.
👤The hitch kit and the bike rack for my 2010 Odyssey will cost at least $200 and 2 hours to install. I took the risk and bought this rack. There is a We used the rack for 2 and 4 beach chairs. It worked out fine. There is a It was assembled in 1 minute. In 2 minutes, it was installed and went 250 miles without any issues. It feels good. I was checking it a few times and it was tight. The product is great and the price is unbeatable.
👤I carried 3 kids bikes for 6 hours each way through the mountains. It's easy to put together. I stopped to check. It started tight and in place. The straps were used to tie the tires in place. It was attached to my trunk. I don't have metal underneath my bumper to hook it to.
👤There is an update. We were not happy with the original rack we received, but Allen customer service has been great. They asked for a few photos. They sent a new rack based on the photos. Allen confirmed that the new rack is a newer model. The star rating has been upgraded because of the great CS. We will do a final update based on the performance of the new rack. This product turned out to be unsafe for us. As you drive down the highway, the thin silver metal supports pop out and the rack is dangling. In a word, flimsy. It might be a viable solution if you only use it once in a while for a short drive to a park. If you need a sturdy rack that can handle long trips and bumps in the road, something more sturdy is required. We had to tape and zip tie this thing to try to hold it together, but it didn't work. We gave up after it malfunctioned. Not safe. Not strong.

👤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. You are not buying a Thule. The tie downs for the bike are not clips, you have to thread and unthread loops to take the bike off. It is great for short trips around town. We are hoping that the bike will make it to Maine safely. It would have been helpful to see the chart on the back of the box before we bought it. My daughter's car isn't on the fit list and we had to make some modifications to her car to make it fit. We should have known that any rack of this type would have been attached to plastic. Our bad. I would recommend this rack even though it isn't perfect.
👤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.

👤We didn't have a trailer hitch on our vehicles so we had to carry our mountain bikes to the park. There is a The bike rack arrives in a professional decorated box, has a durable appearance, and can fit on our saturn sedan and Chrysler town and country lift. It holds 3 adult bikes with no issues, and the pads are good enough to keep it from scratching. We have used this rack on the interstate at 75 miles per hour with no shaking, rocking back and forth, or strap slippage.
👤2 bikes are put on this bike carrier. 3 bikes wouldn't fit on this rack. Anyway left for vaca. About an hour on the trip. We pulled off the road after hearing a sound. The end of the arms that hold the bikes had the rubber bike holders on it. The scew head in the stoppers looks like they are screwed in. We could see there was nothing we could do to fix it. It's a hollow pipe. The bike's back fell off, shredding the tire and wheel. The chain was wrapped around the sprockets and bent up. This was a limited edition bike that was made for one year. Not as expensive as my bike. I still liked it. It is now trashed. Don't buy thisRACK. I can't find any contact information for this man. I can't demand compensation from them. It's so sad.
👤The staps broke. I bought this bike rack a few weeks ago for a camping trip. I only traveled with 2 bikes for my teenagers because it was designed for 3 bikes. When we left, the 2 bikes were held in the correct position. We traveled an hour away from home. The bikes fell into traffic. Four cars were damaged because of this product failing to do its intended purpose. The firefighters and police agreed that the product had a poor design. There was only property damage and no one was hurt. Do not purchase this product.
👤This product is easy to install. My expectations were low for the price. What I received was worse than I had expected. The entire weight of the rack and bikes hangs on two small straps after I installed it on a car. The whole thing sagged after the first bike was hung. The posts that are over 16 inches apart are not compatible with my bike frame. The straps on the bottom came undone. The bottom straps come free no matter how tight I am. Unless your bike has a 1/3 inch top tube, the red rubber frame holders are useless. The straps for the bike are nylon and the mounting straps are plastic. It was clear from the start that there is no way you can fit 3 bikes on the rack. It won't support the weight of three bikes. The straps are loosened as you travel down the road. I mean every couple miles. I still don't trust the strap that I used as a secondary support strap. Our bikes are not heavy. All between 25-40 lbs. After trying to get bikes on the rack for testing, the rack was too marred and scratched to return, and the frames were damaged from the screws on the frame holders. There were missing nuts from the box. If you have a bike that costs more than $75, I don't trust this rack to carry it down the road. If you are trying to get your bike to a trail head, this rack is not for you. Total waste of money.

👤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.

👤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.

👤The video shows how to unfold the rack. Do not spin! You are removing them! If you follow his directions, the handles will fly apart and you will spend 30 minutes getting it back together. Turn the handles out. Not a good bike rack. It is. I can't return it because it was in Chinese and Amazon.
👤I bought this for my car. A. The instructions were not very useful. There is a My door wouldn't close when I got it on. C. I had to change it around to keep it out of the vehicle. There is a Conclusions: This was a total waste of money. I need a new bike rack. There is a Do not buy this bike rack if you have a RAV 4.
👤We did not get instructions. We are a day past the return policy so we can't return it. I can't get in touch with the company. Anyone know how to do it? Ours sits too low to the ground and we think it's faulty. There is a We will change review if the company contacts us.
👤The first step of adjusting the rails was awful. The springs came out when the screws popped off. It took me 30 minutes to get this fixed. It wasn't hard after that. Even though the bolts were tight, my bike slid off the rack as I drove. You will need to tie some of the straps around the bike frame to keep it from sliding off the rack onto the ground. Very dangerous. They should have done something about this. It does seem stable once it is on. I'm afraid to put the bikes on it because they could slide off. I only use one bike at a time.
👤It is easy to install. It is cheap. You need to secure a bike for short distances. Good for SUVs and sedans. There is a It was terrible for 2 bikes. It does not hold up. I still recommend one bike for short distances. There is a I wouldn't use it on bumpy roads.
👤There are design flaws in this bike rack. The rubber straps are easy to unhook and the rubber mounts hold the bike frame in place.
👤The bike carrier is easy to remove from the van gate. It's perfect for carrying a couple of bikes and for quick storage when out on the trails.

👤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.

👤The product was in good condition. Over the years, we've had several bike racks. The type that hangs your bike from the cross bar is all of them. There are only two frames we have to transport. The female bike was a pain with the extra bar. Not any more. We love this rack. It took about 15 minutes to get it together. It works well in our 2 inch receiver and is stable. They said it was rock solid when I used the clamps. The bikes are super secure and easy to load. Going down the freeway. Awesome. The name brand units are a great price if you check them out. The quality is very good. Highly recommend this product.
👤You can tell by the weight of the box that it is a large hunk of metal. Do not be deterred by the posts that say "too many parts" or that it's too confusing. The average person can figure this out in 20 minutes if they have pictures and instructions. There is a You will want to use the hitch lock piece. It is a deterrent to theft as someone will need a deep sockets or inc wrench before they can remove the carrier, and it keeps the carrier rock solid in the receiver. It will take more work to get your bikes to fit without touching each other. The bikes are reversed in the photos that come with the carrier. I couldn't make this work because the handlebars on one bike made contact with the seat on the other. There is a I have two bikes facing the same direction and the carrier works great. Everything was safe and sound because of a high speed run down the freeway and a drive all over Houston's crappy streets. The red arrow should be noted. As with all bike carriers, it is important that you put some kind of material between the bike and the carrier, as movement and vibration can wear paint.
👤I was worried about the price and the fact that it had no reviews, but it was easy to put together and it fits on the back of my jeep wrangler with the spare tire.
👤I read reviews. Know when I do... I took out the 5 stars. They have to own the company or stock. One star can't even see the pictures and this is easy to assemble. Period. I saw a lot of things. The husband and wife team. It's funny. Repacked and sent it back? You sent the bike rack back. Not a bolt or washer to assemble! The rubber tire straps would be difficult to push over the steel peg. The instructions were terrible. Agree! Take a look at the parts picture. It is easy if you use common sense. I adjusted the bike by shaking it. It is going to your destination. Oh yes... No common sense people... There is no off loading your bike pics. The bottom line. I look forward to my first trip with my bikes because of the inexpensive, sturdy, easy to assemble bike rack. The bike rack is very EXPENSIVE but at a fraction of the cost of a bike shop rack. Those of you that can't figure it out will get totally assembled bike racks. There are bike shops waiting for you. Enjoy your travels with your bikes.
