    if your bike frame fits without an adapter, this is a good solution.

    Pros
    I had this rack for 2 years. I loved it. strong, stable and compact for storage. Also can be used as a work stand

    Cons
    did not work with my full suspension frame. needed to use an adapter bar which was a clunky solution, it worked, but it was a PITA.

    Highly recommended to anyone looking for a good bike hitch rack

    Pros
    Fold away for bed access
    easy installation
    locking onto the hitch
    holds 5 bikes very well
    sturdy

    Cons
    the rubber straps are difficult to pull sometimes but this has been corrected on the new models with a different attaching mechanism

    Buy this rack to confidently haul your bikes and not for opening your beers.

    Pros
    Has a seatpost strap to help prevent the bikes from swinging around (but at highway speeds my two bikes still found each other). Bikes mount quickly and securely. It fits onto my jeep liberty withou the need for an extender! The gate can't open but I can still get in my glass.

    Cons
    The adapter that allows for mounting into a 2" hitch is aluminium and has a loose fit. Might have to replace the spaced in a few years. Sam Adams beer botttle caps cannot be opened with the beer opener! The lock kit is good to secure at the hitch but the cable will only be able to lock the bike at the end of the poles, so I use a cable lock around the main post when I haul 1 bike close to the vehicle.

    All Bikes

    Pros
    Great product for all bikes. When not biking its in my toolbox of my truck. Easy to mount and easy to put bikes on. I have backed into light poles with this rack and let me tell you the light pole lost.

    Cons
    Loose in the mount.

    The best part of this rack is how easily it tilts away from the back of the vehicle. It makes life easier if you're bringing your bike along with you on a trip. It's also a great rack for quick trips to the trail because you can leave the rack on and it's never in the way.

    Pros
    Much simpler to collapse than other racks.

    The straps used to secure the bikes are simple to use.

    The consumption of post-ride brews is made easier with bottle openers at the ends of the folding arms.
