Nice heavy duty frame. Easy to assemble with teenager help. Like feature of folding up when not in use.
I like the platform concept, heavy duty but lite enough for one person to handle. The hold down straps are generic, but effective. I would imagine easily replaced if worn. A rubber strapping system would be nice. The bracket that holds the clamps is nice because it can be removed when not in use to gain access to the vehicle. However when it is in place, it is loose, a firmer fit would be nice. Overall very satisfied. I would recommend this rack.
I bought this carrier because it could adjust between 2 bikes(husband & I) or add the extension for up to 4 bikes (having the grand-kids). I watched the video to put it together, this helped a lot & was easy to do. I'm able to lift & put the carrier on the hitch as well as load the bikes - this was an important criteria in choosing this rack. Some drawbacks - 1. the pins to secure the rack in place don't always go in/out easily. Sometimes it takes a lot of jiggling around, but eventually I get them to work. 2. the crossbars that are used to secure the bike in place work great, but each time I've had to use them, I've put my bike on THEN I drive to another location to get my friends bike on & the crossbar is stuck behind my bike! I've learned that I need to make sure the crossbars that I need to use are up & out of the way & then I need to bungee them to my bike until I get the other bikes on. If the bikes are being loaded at on location, this isn't a problem. These are small issues & once I realized what was going on, am making accommodations. 3. You do need bungee cords so the crossbars aren't hitting the car if your not carrying a bike or the bike, if its the only one on the rack. The is a very good carrier, I do recommend the purchase. A good product for the price.
I bought this rack for the versatility - 2 or 4 bikes and solid reviews. Easy to install, easy to adjust and best of all the bikes are out of the way and stay secure on the rack. Highly recommend for the price.
Wow, finally got a product that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, yet is built to last. The four place bike rack is an awesome addition to our camping trips and allows us the ability to keep our bikes outside the rv where they belong. Other racks allow bikes to bounce on the road and always make me wonder while driving down the road, but this rack was solid into the receiver hitch and I never even new it was on there. The retaining arms were perfect and held the bikes tight for the entire trip. Every campground we stopped someone asked us about the rack. Don't be surprised if you get a lot of sales !!!
Excellent product. Very well made and arrived very quickly.
The reason I bought this carrier was that I had a frame hitch carrier and I did not like how high the bikes sat. It blocked my rear view. Also, the frames were getting scratched. This carrier is perfect. The bikes sit lower and the weight of the bikes are in the cradles. Solid construction and exactly what I was looking for in a bike rack. Very easy to assemble and install.
easy to build and install, very sturdy and easy to load bikes. would recommend and would purchase this product again !!
My friend helped me to install it on my SUV and he was so impressed how well it was built to carry 4 bikes. We tested it by putting two bikes on it and it looked good. My big worry is that I only have one pin to hold the bike rack and I might lose it. I might need a few ones as a back up. I plan to travel with it to the camping in a few weeks.
This is a very well built bike carrier. Incredibly strong so I can drive normal speeds without having to worry about the 4 bikes moving around. Assembles real easy and fits right into the 2 inch hitch receiver. I really like that I don"t have to try and hang four bikes from their frames in different positions. Also there are no obstacles in the way when loading the bikes!! Great Carrier! Thanks Guys!
Perfect bike rack for 24" and 26" mountain bikes. Great father son project and it was in use in under 30 minutes. Could use a couple of extra straps in the box but other than that it's bomb proof.
i bought this rack to carry 2-3 MTBs rather than using the Yakima rack I have that I have to force them to fit. it works well for 2 bikes, but I can't see getting 3 29rs on the rack. could use more room between the rails as I place a bike on the furthest outside and inside rail and have to adjust to keep handlebars from rubbing seat. no way they will fit facing same direction. other than trying to figure out the Velcro straps, it is a great rack for the price and it is well built, not too heavy to handle, very sturdy. I like the ability to adjust the bike size with the rails. it will handle 3 road bikes without any problems.
The 4 bike, wheel holding system, works very well. Installation on vehicle is very easy, just a little heavy, which is a good thing. It is strong and you can drive normal speeds with it on. The only thing which is a slight negative is how you have to use the velcro strips to hold the wheels down. This is difficult the first time, but gets easier after 2-3 times.
I can't tell you how many bike racks we've gone through looking for one that my wife and/or I could actually handle. We're in our mid 50's and enjoy bicycling and taking our bikes to different trails. We simply are getting to the point where we couldn't lift the bikes without hurting something in our (my) back or shoulders. This rack is the PERFECT SOLUTION. The rack mounts easily in a 2" receiver and the fold down feature means that I will leave it permanently mounted to my truck! The expandable X2 carrier feature is nice I suppose down the road if we have more than 2 bikes to transport! I recommend highly to anyone who is tired of lifting their bikes on to a frame or wheel "hanging" rack. Discount Ramps had this ramp to us in 5 days from the date of order!
