Online Cycling Store Your no 1 Customer Review Site bring you Some 5 Star Reviews:
One of the best racks out there –
Google the reviews of this rack and be impressed. No worries about corrosion or rust. Very stable. I got the 3 bike rack even though I have 2 bikes just to make sure I had enough room between the bikes. Easy to install, but one caveat – make sure you do NOT tighten the locking knobs for each leg too tightly or you will strip them and they will be a little loose – not a huge problem, but for peace of mind you want them snug and not loose.
I can also say this for Saris – EXCELLENT customer service. I called to get some replacement knobs, and an extra stabilizer strap since my bike is an oddball and needed an extra length of strap to secure the seat-post tube. I was expecting (and had no problem with) paying for these items. Guess what? No charge – very nice and quick shipping.
Good Basic Rack –
Good, solid rack for shorter trips. After the first time you install it, it becomes very easy to install and remove (3 to 4 minutes to install and less than 1 minute to remove). On a sedan you can leave it on, but on a SUV you have to take it off to get access to the back. The instruction talks of S-Hooks, but the two I’ve bought do not have S-hooks, which makes it harder to remove the hooks after installation. If you want to take your bikes across country look at hitch-racks.
Also, when I bought this rack there was one other review in this space and it was negative. 3 days later and that review has been removed!!
It would leave a bad taste in my mouth if I thought Amazon was removing negative reviews just to sell more products.
