Allen Bike Racks Deluxe 2-Bike Trunk Carrier Customer Reviews
14 Customer Reviews
Nothing can ever duplicate an original. Allen Bike Racks, the original trunk-mount racks with more than four decades of cycle-hauling experience, are living proof. Knock-offs and second-comers aren't nearly as easy to use, safe for your bikes or durable as Allen's Trunk Mount Bike Carrier.
Take this Allen Deluxe 2-Bike Carrier for example. It's ready to use right out of the box and clips to your auto without confusion. The soft saddles on each arm cradle your bikes' frames while a securing tie strap cinches them to the rack. And, it fits to any vehicle: sedans, hatchbacks, minivans, SUVs and even pickup tailgates.
Allen makes their products to last with sturdy steel tubing and a protective zinc plating. You can count on this rack to last through a lifetime of mountings, folding and storage. In fact, Allen stands behind your Deluxe 2-Bike Trunk-Mount Bike Carrier with a lifetime guarantee.

It is really easy to set up. The only problem is that the metal hooks could scratch the paint. So, you would need to purchase some rubber tubing to place between the hooks and the vehicle.

I like the ease of installing and removing. The instructions says. NO INCUMBENTS. And that is what we have. I plan to sell the incumbent anyway and replace it with a mountain bike. So we will keep the rack for the Prius. We also will be adding a dual hitch to our motorhome and plan to purchase a bike rack for it. We also tow a car. We will keep the rack for the Prius so my wife can take the bike a few miles to various trails near the RV Park where we are. Very satisfied with the purchase. JRE.

This is a recent purchase. I've used the rack twice, once on the Florida turnpike at high speed. The rack is easy to install and seems quite sturdy on my Acura TL. I was concerned that it might scratch the paint but it did not. My bike was very secure on the rack, using just one bungee cord along with it as a precaution. I also purchased the adapter since mine is a girl's bike and it worked great. No complaints. I recommend this rack. I looked at others available at local bike shops, more complicated, more expensive, and they were not reviewed as well. I have not tried it with 2 bikes yet, so cannot comment on that.

My Allen Bike Rack works just great ... I had a little trouble getting my bike to fit, so I had to order the adaptor bar ... but it finally fits and we've already been on the road.

Great rack for a beginer I had never used a bike rck before or even looked at one up close. This installed easy and we have not lost a bike yet so it must work well. Worth the money.

The bike rack is very easy to put on and take off of the car. It makes a tight fit to the truck and the bike is very secure at normal speeds and stays that way when turning corners.

I really like this bike rack. I was mystified by other reviews that said it was a little difficult to figure out how to set it up in the beginning because I found it couldn't be easier. I have a Ford Explorer and I had no trouble at all setting up this bike rack. It works fine with one or two bikes. It is relatively sturdy.It is easy to remove and folds up nicely.MY only complaint is that it came slightly scratched because something pierced the box in transit.
