Rage Powersports Trekker Bike Rack - 2 bike capacity
My first bike carrier. I have not used it yet, just assembled it last night. It's a very well made product from what I can tell, and I've welded/fabricated by trade. The hardware (nuts and bolts) might leave a little to be desired, but assembly went fairly smooth. The instructions are not great, but well enough I guess. At $120 it is a considerable bargain compared to more popular brands, and from what Ican see the quality is up there too. It's a great design: compact and well thought out. It's heavy...I'd estimate between 40 and 50 pounds, and while most of this weight is in the hitch assembly of the rack (solid 1.25 inch steel here), the rest of the unit is plenty stout too.
I'm giving 4 stars since I haven't used the rack yet, so I cant vouch for its actual functionality, but I think it will work well and last for a long time.

I finished assembling the rack this morning. I loaded the bike and took it on a test drive. Very stable and upon returning home, I checked everything and all was well. Thanks for building a good product. Also, good assembly instructions.6d6
