Pros: Don't have to take a wheel off
I don't think there is an easier system on the market
Built in cable lock

Cons: None

Recommendation: I get stares and compliments every time i Put my bike on my car at the trail head. People are jealous that it only takes 15-20 seconds to clamp my front tire and and bind my back wheel to the rack through the rim. No fuss or frustration. There are plenty of other things i need to worry about when getting ready for a ride. the last thing i want to do is take off my wheel and put it back on every time i want to go for a ride. This rack deserves to get a 10 out of 5 star rating.

Pros: Bike can be loaded up and strapped down in about a minute and a half, Front tire stays on, ease of use, rack feels solid. no damage to the frame or my car

Cons: I can't really point out any serious cons. At first I felt the bike swayed a bit too much for me but I've now had the rack for about 8 months and I don't even think about it anymore.. Perhaps the only cons would be if you had a flat tire, I'm not sure if the front arms would be able to grip enough while transporting and the red button on knob when loosening doesn't drop unless you pretty much have it completely loosened already.. It's not a big deal, I just do not use the red button, I simply just continue turning to loosen until it drops on its own.

Recommendation: I would definitely recommend this rack, I've since purchased a second one for an extra bike.Build and quality is top notch.Quick note to remember, according to Yakima reps when tightening the knob for the front arm/holder continue to turn until that holder is digging into the tire to ensure a lock tight grip.
