        I'm not mechanical, but rack was VERY easy to assemble and install on vehicle. Goes on/off in minutes. My wife, who had struggled trying to load her bike on our old rack said, "Well, that's easy! I can do this." While some people have complained about "weak locks" the cables (one for each bike) are the same size as our old Yakima rack built in cables. They aren't designed to leave bikes on overnight, but are more than adequate for "under way" or short stops. If you wish, you can always throw an extra Kryptonite on as well but aren't always carrying that extra weight (we have only a Class I hitch on our car) unnecessarily. Great help desk when I called for info before buying. Made in USA.

          Owned for two summers. Last year the nut for the hitch bolt stripped, had to pay to get the rack off my vehicle. Saris sent replacement parts, along with a plastic insert to hold the internal nut for the hitch pin. This worked for awhile, but recently the hitch bolt froze, locking the rack to my vehicle. Had to replace my hitch.

            Great bike rack, super easy to use. Takes seconds to mount or unmount your bike. Bikes are stable on the rack, and rack is stable on the car.

              What a great bike rack! Not only is it made of excellent quality, it is also made in the USA! Super-durable and so easy to use. Getting your bike in and out can't be any easier.

              The rack is easy to put on and take off the car. (2016 Explorer) The only improvement that I would suggest is to make it so it tilts away from the car so that the hatchback can be raised and lowered without taking the bikes off. It rides smoothly while installed with no vibration.

                Excellent rack! I've been using this rack for both my mountain and road bikes for almost two years and absolutely love it. I had this on my Subaru before with a 1 1/4" hitch but have now converted over to the 2" with the supplied adaptor. Definitely more stability with the 2" but I never had an issue with the 1 1/4"..it just wasn't as stable. With all the poor conditions in SoCal lately, the rack has help up with no issues.

                Got this rack as a gift to fit on both of our cars. Needed a bike rack that didn't contact the frame of a carbon fiber bike, and didn't contact the body/paint work of the cars, and roof racks are out of the question. VERY few racks to select from that meets those criteria. After installing a manufacturer approved 1.25" receiver hitch on our 2009 MINI Cooper S, I mounted the hitch and placed 2 road bikes on it. It is a tad big on smaller cars such as the MINI. The hitch held both bikes well enough, but will need to be readjusted each time a different bike is loaded. I think the biggest negative about this hitch at this price point is that it doesn't fold up out of the way. Another thing to note: Cars like the MINI, where the receiver hitches are hidden or well under the bumper, this hitch is not easy to install or remove by 1 person.

                  I shopped around, read a lot of reviews, asked some cycling friends and this seemed to be the best option. After three weeks and safely toting my bike from NC to Florida and back, I believe this may be the perfect bike rack. Worth the price to keep your bike safe and secure. Love this product.

                      I bought this because it was one of the few fat bike compatible racks that didn't contact the frame. Loading and unloading is smooth and easy. The bikes are held steady. I even once made a 30 mile round trip after I left the lock balanced on the hitch and it fell off in the road. I didn't realize it until I saw it in the road by my house. It was a little beat up after getting run over but still works.
