Benefits of the Apex Hitch Bike Racks:
Available in both two and four bike models, these steel bike racks are compatible with existing 1-1/4" Class II and 2" Class III or IV vehicle hitch receivers. These bike racks are designed for easy set up and use! The top cradle area easily folds down for storage, and the entire bike hitch rack can be tilted away for rear vehicle access.
Bikes with frames up to 1-5/8" D can be secured with the included rubber tie-down straps to the grooved cradle platform. A stable 2" x 2" square main support tube attaches to the bike cradle, and a reinforcing 13-1/2" gusset provides unmatched durability. This design allows for a 3" clearance from the pin hole to the gusset, and a 9" clearance from the pin hole to the frame. This bike rack easily folds for compact storage with a single pull-pin or simply tilt the entire rack away from the vehicle with a spring-loaded tilt lock mechanism for rear vehicle access.
Looks like it's very well made with high quality steel
Looked at several 2 bike racks and this emerged as the best for the price. Order was promptly filled and delivery was quick. Assembly was easy and when mounted on my SUV it's very solid with no rattles.
Best bike rack I've owned, easy install and just as easy to lower when access to truck bed is necessary. Solid build, overall just a great product.
My wife needed a bike rack that she could leave on our SUV and have enough clearance to leave it mounted to the car when closing the garage door. The 2-bike rack that we purchased fits great and is very sturdy.
We recently purchased this 3-bike rack after doing research on several brands. We came to the conclusion that this rack would be a great choice at a reasonable price and we weren't wrong. The video was very helpful for a first time bike rack purchaser. We received our rack quickly and was able to put it together rather easily. We've been using the rack quite a bit since we purchased and it works great! I would highly recommend this bike rack to anyone who is looking for a great deal in quality and price.
I think it is a well made product. I bought the 2 bike rack to carry my adult bikes on vacation. I like the fold down features so I can access the hatch back of my car. It is also a very sturdy product and a great value for the dollar!
I like how strong this bike rack is. There is no question of its durability. I also like the mounting system. Gives you options for strapping in the bikes. Also nice that the straps can be easily removed and stored in the vehicle, rather than flapping in the breeze. That also prevents skeezers from vandalizing the rack and cutting the straps (yeah... that's not fun). I only have two beefs with this rack: 1) The arms are just a bit too far apart. They're perfect for men's bikes, but even the slightest drop in the top tube (like on a womans mountain bike) and it becomes hard to mount the bike. 2) There's not quite enough room to adjust the distance between the bikes. My wife and Daughter have urban bikes and I have a road bike. The handlebars on my road bike run up against the wheel of the other bikes about 3 inches shy of setting in the cradle. The modification was simple (remove the limiting screw on the inside mounts to slide them further back), but it seems like this would have been a simple design fix by the manufacturer. Once my mod was made, I was able to get all bikes on and it was nice and sturdy. Most importantly, the bikes don't wobble around and bang into each other. I'm happy.
Very nice product , sturdy built and easy to use. Nice design features
This is the best bike rack I have ever bought! And I have bought many bike racks in my lifetime. I am a person of bikes. I bike everyday, from 5:00 (AM) to 8:00 (PM). I have been worried about my bike obsession, and I have called doctors about it. They have said not to worry. The reason i was worried is because i have over 22 bikes and 12 bike racks. It took be 10 years to do this. Out of those many of them are broke or dysfunctional. I hope other people like this bike rack as much as I do. Thanks!
Easy to put together.
Really like this bike rack. Easy to install and use. The only problem that you should be aware of is that because of the fork design on where the bikes are strapped to, if you have a bike with the short cross bar then it may not fit across this fork.
Just bought the rack for my bikes. The product is really easy to install and mount. Strong, well made, sturdy and easy! I'll alway trust in your for my bikes and motorcycles mobility needs! Thanks!
Easy to use, easy to put together. needed a rack that holds all our bikes so we can goto the park and ride. Great price too.
The product is just as described. Easy to put together, easy to attach to the car and easy to put the bikes on. The strap comes with the kit is a nice addition for securing the bikes.
like the rack but cannot get support for rubber tie strap replacement. No one able to steer me to a supplier.
