Great looking rack and it doesn't take a lot of time to assemble. The only thing that could be better is the channels that the tires go in could be longer. We have two adults 26" bikes and the tires set at the very edge of the channels. Other then this is a great looking rack and should come in real handy for transporting our bikes and our 5 year old grandsons bike which fits on it great with the clamping arm holding it in place.
