Pros: Ease of use

Cons: Lock does not reach back wheel ... need additional locks to secure back wheel.

Recommendation: Overall a very good rack. It is on the heavy side to take out and in but it is very secure. I would recommend it!

Pros: Good rack with an extension. Bombproof for the most part. Best hitch rack I've owned.

Cons: Doesn't fit fat bikes without modifications

Recommendation: Get the newer version if you plan to own a fat bike.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Holds 2 or 4 bikes of any style, built in locks

Cons: HEAVY! Not a rack to take on and off vehicle easily. Can be too low for some vehicles.

Recommendation: Good solution to moving multiple nontraditional bikes. I have a four place, and I'm glad I got it. It mounts pretty low on my minivan though. Occasionally drags on the ground when driving on or off ramps, culverts, etc.

Pros: Doesn't touch frame. Locks bike up. Rides good. Heavy duty. Real fast on and off. The tilt down works great with my Durangos back hatch.

Cons: Keys to the locks are flimsy. After awhile the lever for the tilt hangs with the bikes on. You have to tighten up the hitch lock every 3 or 4 days.

Recommendation: I bought this new and then went on a 6 week 18 state 10,000 mile road trip with my son where we mostly camped out on dirt roads. So I put it and my bikes through the ringer. And gotta say it did great with only a few small complaints. It's still on the back of my Durango right now and bikes still have a paint on em. Glad I bought it.

Pros: Securely holds two bikes. Bikes can be locked and rack folds.

Cons: Expensive and heavy to fold down with bikes on it. Only comes with two lock cylinder and should come with four.

Recommendation: Overall I love this rack. It is mounted on a Toyota Tundra. It is impossible to see the rack unless there is a bike on it so it makes it pretty difficult to back up. Bikes are very secure and the rack is solid as a rock when mounted. Comes with a lock for the hitch so it can stay mounted. I would recommend this rack.
