Review Summary (Based on 4 Reviews)


4 Stars Roof rack is an excellent buy

dB from VA wrote (September 02, 2016):

Bought 2. I was worried that a $49 bike rack would be cheaply made, but not the case with these! Great quality, and great service when ordering on the phone. (There is something about talking directly to a product expert.) The only drawback was that it took a while to tighten 8 lockdown nut/knobs for each rack during installation. The rack is very secure. Installation is simple.

4 Stars Great rack at a great price

Bought this for a 29er and worked great. I have a CX-9 and the rack was a bit long once installed to open the back door but after a minor adjustment no problem. I would recommend this to anyone as an alternative option to other that are much higher priced. I plan on buying one additional for my wife's bike.

5 Stars Excellent Value

I have now purchased two and love them. Friends of mine have Thule and Yakima roof racks and these are just as good for much lower cost. In fact i would offer they are more accommodating, as my Expedition has flat bars and the Yakima won't work on my vehicle. Easy and straight forward to install and use.

5 Stars Top-Quality Product

This is a top-quality roof-mount bike rack. I bought this rack several years ago and it has remained in perfect condition with almost daily use. I recently purchased a second rack for my other car because I was so pleased with the first. The current rack has some great new improvements with the rear wheel binding, even better than the first. Easy to install, this rack attached to my cross-bars without a problem. The rack holds the bikes very securely to the car even under emergency braking situations. It looks great and costs a fraction of name brands. Highly recommended. Happy biking!
