5 Stars Car Bike Rack

Harry from IN wrote (June 17, 2017):

Made very well, heavily designed, easy to assemble, takes a little longer to strap down bikes but time well spent. When driving on highway Bikes don't move. Frame do's not fold up like competitors but that is not that really . This is my third bike rake two fro other companies and i believe the fold up models for this price range are designed to flimsy

4 Stars Solid Rack

Brian from SD wrote (February 27, 2017):

This is a solid rack as i was worried about making a trip with this rack for 1650 miles and wanted a rack built for a 2" receiver. The adaptable receiver appears to be very solid and the rack went together very well with all the holes tapped properly and aligned well. Can't give it 5 stars as i haven't gotten it on the road yet but i would recommend other tie downs other than the "straps" that came with the rack. I am not a believer in nylon straps for tie downs. I would prefer a commercial rubber bunge or foam wrapped wire for durability.

4 Stars Very solid rack

Chuck from WI wrote (December 05, 2016):

This rack is very well designed in terms of strength and versatility. I am using it for our 2 bikes, one of which is a ladies bike. I chose this one mostly because the bikes sit on the wheels instead of hanging(which is a problem for ladies bikes). After reading a previous review, I weighed it. It weighs 30 pounds, not 50, which is easy enough to handle. The only things I would change would be: 1. Add extra holes in the hitch mount to get it closer to the vehicle(camper in my case). I drilled and tapped a second set of holes in the mount to get it closer. Happily, the hardware is S.A.E. (American). 2. Lots of tiedown straps are needed to secure the bikes, (they are included). It would be more convenient if there were some adjustable clamps instead. Overall though, this is a great value for the price

4 Stars Solid rack

Paul from CA wrote (March 05, 2016):

I finally got around to assembling this. As mentioned by another reviewer the included instruction was somewhat difficult to follow. Luckily there's a video on how to assemble it on the website so made install a cinch. Parts are solid and I imagine it will last a long time. I do get a wobble and bounce when the car is motion. The included pin doesn't seem safe to leave on overnight. There no information on the size of the pin that goes into the tow hitch. I purchased a 5/8" pin and it's too large. A 1/2" may be too big either based on my measurement. I'll need to try a few to get the right fit.

5 Stars A very sturdy bike rack

Edd from MT wrote (January 22, 2016):

We purchased this bike rack to carry our e-bikes. We needed a rack that would raise the bikes high enough to provide clearance on the back of our RV. This one does. The shaft that goes into the receiver is solid steel. All the parts are well constructed. I was able to assemble the rack without too much difficulty by following the included instructions. We are confident that this rack will transport our bikes safely for a long time. This rack is worth the modest price.

5 Stars Nice bike carrier

Nice solid bike carrier at a good price. I found the carrier easy to assemble and it supports the bikes very well.

4 Stars STeel 2-Bike Hitch Mount

Joe from IN wrote (July 07, 2015):

I bought this particular mount after reading previous good reviews and because I did not want my bike hanging on a tube like mount. I assembled and mounted the unit to my van without any problems, I like the fact that it is also expandable to 4 bikes if needed later. I like the steel heavy duty construction. I rated this unit 4 stars simply for the fact I did not like the long screw bolt you had to snug up to the hitch instead of inserting a locking hitch pin that I always use. So, the only way to secure it is with a tiny lock thru the cotter pin hole. But, for the money, it is well built and what I was looking for.

5 Stars First Bike Carrier

Terry from AL wrote (July 05, 2015):

My wife and I just got into biking and this is our first carrier. Wanted a hitch mount so we can carry with our pickup when we go on vacation. I think we did well on our choice. Like this as you don't have to have an additional add on bar for ladies bikes with the drop bar. Instructions could be a bit better but if you tinker with anything you can certainly figure it out.

5 Stars two bike hitch carrier

Charles from GA wrote (July 03, 2015):

I ordered this from amazon,it arrived in three days upon ordering. The parts list and instructions were a little confusing,but it took about 20 minutes to assemble.Folks this is a sturdy carrier,it holds two bikes securely enough to take bikes a very long distance without worring about them getting loose or damaged. Highly recommend this carrier and the price was good for such a well made carrier.

4 Stars A great solid bike rack

This rack was easy to put together. Was very cheep in price, but is a heavy and solid bike rack. The setup for carying any size bike is very nice. I like how it can be used for two or four bikes. I like my rack

5 Stars Great bike rack.....

5 Stars Great Carrier

Grat Carrier, nice and solid

5 Stars Perfect choice for us!

Shelly from WA wrote (May 10, 2015):

We spent lots of time looking for a bike rack to suit our needs. This one turned out to be perfect! It arrived needing lots of assembly, but once it was put together, and installed on our truck we could see we chose the best one. My favorite feature is the padded bar that separates the two bikes--this keeps the paint on your bike from getting damaged. Good value.

5 Stars Solid Heavy Duty Bike Rack

Chuck from NY wrote (May 10, 2015):

Recently received the BC-7621 Bike Rack which was fairly easy to assemble. A big plus is the bikes are not hanging and can be secured to the rack safely. It is a bit heavy, however it will no doubt be long lasting. I like the fact it can be used with both 1-1/4" and 2"hitch receivers.

5 Stars A sturdily built bicycle carrier

Ronald from FL wrote (February 20, 2015):

I do not like bicycle carriers where the bikes dangle from a tube and can easily move and rub against each other. This carrier does away with those concerns because the bikes sit on top of the carrier and the wheels are safely secured and will not move. Tghe carrier is sturdily built. I think it is overbuilt, which puts it on the heavier side. However, for the 2 times when you use or remove the carrier, that is ok because the hitch receiver can easily handle the weight. I like this carrier and recommend it.

5 Stars Bike Carrier

Great assembly video. Easy to assemble.

4 Stars Nice product!

Dan from ME wrote (December 03, 2014):

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
