1. Saris Freedom Bike Tray Hitch

Saris Freedom Bike Tray Hitch

The Freedom 4-bike hitch rack can carry just about any style and combination of bikes out there, with two outer bikes not exceeding 35 lbs each. Rackets are easy to use to keep a bike secure. Universal Hitch is compatible with most 2" hitches. There is a base at WHEELBASE. The rack is right out of the box. If your bike has a longer wheel base, you will need a bar. Features include protective rubber holders that fit any frame, foot pedal tilt that allows access to the vehicle cargo area, and a rack that folds up when not in use.

Brand: Saris

👤The product is advertised for bikes. I used it 8 times and it fell apart, leaving my ebike in the street. One of the cups the wheel rides in failed and the center post holder failed, leaving one wheel held to the rack and the rest of the bike dragging in the street. The parts are snapped and made out of plastic. My bike is within the weight range they quote and everything was attached as the directions recommend. I wasn't traveling fast or the road was rough. I wasted my money on this and it's outside of the return window. Learn from my experience.

👤It took a lot of research to find a good carrier solution for our beach cruisers. The majority of the racks are either over the wheel or the top bar. This is an excellent choice if you own a beach cruiser or women's bike. I've only used it four times, but I can get the rack bolted onto the trailer hitch and both bikes tied up within 5 minutes. The unit is built to last. I have traveled on highways and bumpy city roads without any concern about the bikes coming loose. When the unit is tilted back, the rear hatch is not a problem.

👤I bought the Saris 4 bike freedom rack back in February of 2020. My kids are old enough to trail ride with me and I needed an upgrade from my old 2 bike rack system that could easily and securely fit four MTBs without frame contact. I have been frustrated with the rack since February, and I couldn't have been more wrong to buy it. I should have paid the extra couple of hundred bucks for a tray hitch rack like 1up from the beginning. There is a I have two bikes, one with plus-size wheels, and a couple of kids, and I spent too much time configuring and reconfiguring the position of the wheel. They would loosen and shift and I would have to do it over and over again. The seats, handlebars, and pedals of the bikes will rub and cause damage to the other bikes if there isn't enough room between them. I would have to tie socks between the points of contact. The plastic components loosen easily after a few journeys. The Allen head bolt that held the cradle on fell out and the cradle fell off. It was in my driveway and not on the highway. The wheel tray straps are difficult to close. You have to get the position right each time. It is extremely frustrating. The rubber slips on the down tube cradle's anti-sway straps will not stay in position and will slip down the straps. They are an interesting idea, but they are an awful execution. The tilt bar wouldn't stay locked in the vertical position and the bikes attached to it would rock a little from side to side because the tip of the tilt pull handle broke. I had to make my own fix with a bolt head and a spot weld because I couldn't find a replacement part. I spent 25 minutes loading my four bikes each time I went for a ride and was constantly adjusting and re-adjusting the parts on the rack to fit the bikes. If you bike more than once in a blue moon, you'll get frustrated. This is not a bike rack made by Saris at a higher price point. I would say that it's garbage. I think they are exploiting the craze in biking. This product is worth half of that. It is for a person who bikes one or two times a month and has the patience of Job or is slightly masochistic. If you bike frequently, I would not recommend buying this product, you'll want to take a hammer to it. It's a good thing.

2. Thule Camber Mount Bike Carrier

Thule Camber Mount Bike Carrier

There is a limited lifetime warranty. The quality and design of the Bike Rack products are what they stand for. There are a lot of mishaps covered by their Lifetime Warranty. It is against the law to use an RV or 5th wheel. The hitch-mount bike carrier is hanging. The rear of the vehicle access is where the rack tilts down. It is designed to fit the hitch receiver. The bike is fit and stable. The cradles prevent bike to bike contact. Attach and secure bikes with straps. A wide variety of bike sizes/frame styles can be found in the compact design.

Brand: Thule

👤The bike car carrier I had before was great. It was built with thick rubber straps that made it easy to load and lock down bikes. I accidentally backed it into a tree and it survived several hard impacts. I was disappointed that they don't make the same rack anymore. I bought the 2020 version. There is a The good first. The frame and core are heavy duty. It is easy to attach to a tow hitch. The mechanisms to raise and lower the bars are easy to use. It can hold the weight of 4 bikes, although hanging 4 adult size bikes on it would require a Tetris expert. I usually only carry two mountain bikes. The rubber rests can be adjusted to fit different bike frames. The bad and annoying parts. The straps for holding bikes down are difficult to use. They are thin, with plastic teeth, and tighten down by threading through small locking boxes. The straps have to be run through the boxes. It can be difficult with bike frames. The thin straps on my bike don't have my confidence for holding up over time, elements or bumpy roads. There is a The plastic release lever is supposed to raise off the teeth so they can be pulled out. The straps have to be straight in the boxes to be released. You have to lift and adjust the bike to get it out if it has shifted during the drive. When the bike shifts en route, the release lever tends to flip over, but fortunately it doesn't release the strap, but it gets stuck, and the release lever has to be pushed back into place. To do this again, you are having trouble with the bike and the strap. Getting the straps out of the box can be difficult. The straps are an annoyance but they are a problem for many women and people with a slighter build. I left the bikes on the rack for the night, rather than fight to get them off. There is a The rubber straps on the previous model were more efficient and easy to use. You pulled and hooked them. I never had a problem getting them on or off. It was a bad idea to switch to this overcomplicated strap and lock box design. There is a This works well as a bike carrier. The frame and its workings are strong. The straps will be a problem for many women and people with a slight build, but it will be difficult for them to get bikes connected and disconnected.

👤I purchased this rack because of the reputation of the brand. I was disappointed with how weak it was. The rubber/plastic straps that keep the frame in place on the first trip almost made me lose 2 bikes on the highway.

👤I received a bike rack. Quite disappointed so far. There is a The portion shown on the picture was damaged when opened. I received an email back. I haven't received any more communication from them. There is a The plastic straps are cheap and unlikely to survive South Dakota Weather. The straps on the bike rack are rubber, which is more reliable and flexible. I would not recommend this product.

3. Venzo Bicycle Platform Style Carrier

👤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.

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.

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.

It has a pin, and safety knows to open the gate on the back of the SUV with a rack.

The rack can be quickly released with locking pins. The hitch stabilizer and installation tool kit are included in the rack.

👤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. If you are looking for the most secure, high quality and easiest to use bike rack, we recommend this one. You will love it.

👤The setup for this rack is very easy and holds my e bike perfectly. There is a I can put groceries on the rack if the arm swings down 45 degrees. 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: 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.

7. MaxxHaul 70210 4 Bike Deluxe Hitch

MaxxHaul 70210 4 Bike Deluxe Hitch

Mountain bikes, V brake bikes, and Disc brake bikes have different lengths. Transport 4 bikes securely. The rear of the vehicle can be easily accessed with the swing down feature.

The 70210 bike rack is designed to handle bikes with a horizontal top bar. Adding or installing a horizontal cross bar is not included in the bike frame.

Brand: Maxxhaul

👤I was a little worried since I had seen some concerns about hitch type racks being flimsy. This thing is solid. Even over rough streets, it keeps my bikes in place. It doesn't seem to move around at high speeds. Not sure if you could fit 4 adults bikes on it, but three plus a smaller bike is fine. Really pleased with this. It is easy to attach and remove.

👤This will haul 4 bikes as advertised. The reason that it gets 1 star is that the grooves that the bike sits in is a thin piece of rubber and the screw that holds it in place is in the bottom where the bike weight will rest and also completely uncovered and only 1/16 of an inch from sticking out and rubbing the paint I don't trust my bike. I wasted my money because it is too late to return it.

👤The bike rack feels solid. It folds down so that you can still open your trunk. I was worried that it would be cheap but it is heavy duty and not flimsy. It is a simple process to assemble the rack. You have to attach the parts that hold the bikes to it. I made sure to tighten all the nuts and bolts that came with the car. The included hitch bolt is threaded and comes with a pin. I used a wrench to tighten it so it can't be easily removed by hand. I can't complain for $35 bucks. It was worth giving it a try, even though I was a bit worried about the straps breaking, but for $35 it was worth it.

👤The bike was mounted on Aug. 6, 2020. Not driving yet. Review. There is a The 4 bike rack system feels very tough. The metal is roughly the same size as the part that goes into the receiver. The not so clear instruction booklet was not a factor inAssembling it. The two parts fold easily. The cotter safety pins are tight. I only have one bike to test with, but it fit onto the rack well, sat on the rubber part well and snug, and was very light. Well balanced. The tie down is strong and tight. The bike is in place on the rack. When the rack is tilted back, the bike can touch the ground on its wheels, vertically, and stay there, while the rack is out of the way to access your car from the back gate. It's nice to have that flexibility. It's easy to lower the rack while the bike is on it. If I need to lower the rack with more then one bike, I would ask someone to help. It will work well for my needs. The mountain bike's wheels hang off the ground when it's on the rack. The bike is on the ground on my SUV. This might be different for different cars. There is a I expected it to be smaller once it was folded. About 3 feet long. That's nice. It's not too heavy to carry short distances. I can't see the hitch in my mirrors when it's in the folded position. The view through my rear window is completely unimpeded. I can still see it on my camera when I back up. It takes a bit to get used to. There is a The first obvious thing is the use of a proprietary pin that keeps the rack attached to the hitch receiver. You can place a cotter pin on the male rack if the pin screws into it. Only from the left to the right. The male part of the rack has threads built into it, so it can't be bypassed by simply not using the pin that comes with it. I wish they had left it a regular size hole so people could use their own pins. The no lock problem has been solved. I bought a chain that was 2 feet long. There is a padlock. I locked the chain down after taking the chain through the chain loop welded below my hitch receiver. It's not the most elegant solution. The hitch pins have locks on them. I bought chain at a hardware store. Padlock can be anything you want it to be. It feels like the rack is a bit jiggly at the hitch receiver. On a dirt road, this could be an issue with rattle and noise. I need to test it out before I say anything. I found a solution. It's called a Hitch Tightener. It is available for $10 and up. The girl's bike won't hold a cross bar. There is a solution called a "Tension Bar Bicycle Cross-Bar Adaptor" that can be used for $17 and up. There is a Despite the threaded pin, it feels like a good value. It has the flexibility to lean out of the way. There is a I did a short drive with the bike on the rack. It worked well. I made it work better by doing a few things before the event. I taped foam to the upright bar because I noticed that the bike swung and hit it. I wrapped a bungie around the upright bar to keep it from swinging. It made for a smooth drive. I am quite satisfied with this bike rack, it has solved the security issue, the rattling issue, and the bike swinging issue.

8. Stromberg Carlson BC 204 Platform 4 Bike

Stromberg Carlson BC 204 Platform 4 Bike

Features include protective rubber holders that fit any frame, foot pedal tilt that allows access to the vehicle cargo area, and a rack that folds up when not in use. The package has a dimensions of 17.78 cm. The package is called the Transport Rack. China is the country of origin.

Brand: Stromber

👤Stromberg Carlson was able to resolve the issue by calling him. The picture and instructions said the bike clamping mechanisms were locked and we received a safety clevis pin. They explained the issue to the customer service and offered to send all the necessary parts to fix it. The new uprights, bike clamps and horizontal bars arrived two days later. The rack is very easy to use and converts from a two to four bike carrier. The rack can be folded down to make it easier to see the back of the vehicle with no bikes loaded. I looked at every platform bike carrier and Stromberg Carlson's service is second to none, and my girlfriend, who is a bit small, is the one who has the most features, this is the most versatile and Amazon's shipping is second to none. There is no way to lock the rack to the vehicle. I ordered a cable lock that will allow me to lock the rack and bikes. I couldn't be happier.

👤This is worth it. I carry 4 bikes most of the time and I just got back from a 450 mile trip and couldn't be happier with this rack. It is solid, you can lock the bikes up if you need to, and it is secure. There is a The set up was easy. I did it myself. If you want to keep it on your vehicle, it folds up. The locking feature on the hooks that keep your bikes secure. If you need to leave your bikes in there for a while, you can be sure they won't get stolen. My self is still putting a cable chain on them. I use a regular 4 bike rack for my bikes in my 2016 GMC Acadia. When I drive with bikes on it, I get nervous. It would bounce like crazy. I didn't like the rubber straps that companies used to tie down the bikes. Stromberg Carlson's platform rack is half the price of other similar racks on the market, but is as useful and durable as them. I would recommend this to everyone!

👤I bought this because it looked better than others in the same price range, and I wanted to stay under $200. The build quality is good. It can be either a 2-bike or a 4-bike if you just remove one bolt. There is a Adjustments are easy. It takes up a small amount of space when the arms and hitch fold vertically. It's very heavy, 85lb, which makes it hard to move around by yourself. I had planned on using a locking hitch pin, but this actually uses a threaded bolt through the hitch. The carrier is pulled against one side of the hitch to prevent swaying. I use a combination lock in the bolt's cotter pin hole instead of a locking hitch pin. Good luck.

9. IKURAM 4 Bike Bicycle Foldable Receiver

👤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. Thanks in advance. They need to pay for my son's bike. Guess what no more responses from them will be. You are the judge.

👤The bike rack was assembled in about 2 hours. You will probably do it quicker. The package includes cheap wrench tools, but you will definitely want more. A standard crescent wrench and screw driver is required. There is a There is a basic configuration for 2 bikes or 4 bikes. The extended 4 bike version was ordered by us. Each bike has two loops, one for the front tire and one for the back. You slide on the inside and outside of the slide bar. There are two sliding padded loops that go up and down over the horizontal bike tubes after a post goes up between the two bikes. Take a look at my pictures. If you only have 3 bikes, then you only need to install 6 tire loops, which is why ours looks like it's custom made. It's the 4 bike version. We can remove the two bike extension and go to a two bike carrier. The contraption is on the back of our car and can be seen from the car. People are asking if you can open a trunk with bikes in it. I'm sure you could. The rack is heavy even when it's empty. You would need to be a superman to be loaded with bikes. You can't get into the back of the car when it's loaded with 3 or 4 bikes. There is a A key lock for the pin connecting the rack to the car is a nice feature. I can see someone driving past and tossing bikes into the back of a pickup, but I don't know if this lock will stop them. It won't hold a pry bar. There is a The bikes are locked onto the stand with a key lock. It's not going to be able to stop people from walking away with your bike. The padded loop was able to slide down enough to work with a woman's bike. The eBike tires work well with the rack. Even though the bikes weigh 45 lbs, 4 of them still feel supported on the rack. There aren't many negatives other than the fact that you have to remove the metal from the back of your car. It's going to be very difficult to remove this rack from the car, that's the worst feature. The bolt is screwed into the receiver. It's going to be difficult to remove that bolt because it's a no-slip type. They want to stop rattles and secure the stand to the car. It's going to be hard to put it on and take it off. I can already see the wear on the nut from being tightened up once. I've put it on and off 20 times. I have a feature on my car that is specific to me. The hatch will open if I loiter around the back of the car. The hatch would bang into my bikes when I loaded them. I can change that feature. I have to remember to do that. If you're after a heavy duty rack that's able to hold heavier bikes, this is the one for you.

👤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.
