Model/Year: Sherpa 2015

Pros: It doesn't weigh much especially compared with my Thule T2. It looks good and has an easy tool free anti wobble feature.

Cons: I don't like the fact that you have to have the arm touching the fork, if it isn't touching then it's design flaw appears it's ugly head. The arm pivot point is too far back which will allow the front wheel to pop up and out of the track. You won't loose your bike or anything because it's still somewhat secure but it is annoying that my fork is starting to look like crap due to the rubbing.
The other complaint is the arms move far too easily and when folded will end up in your bumper just by going down a steep driveway.
Not really a fan compared to the Thule T2
The 1Up USA trumps them all

Recommendation: If you're looking for a nice rack then go with the 1Up USA rack.

Pros: - Super easy to use: set the bike in the tray, cinch the wheel holder and strap, and go!
- Durable finishes

Cons: - A little heavy

Recommendation: The Sherpa is a well-constructed hitch rack that will do the job for years without complaint.
