Does not work well with mountain bikes. I had to use extra cords to secure. My husband's bike does not fit well at all. The biggest disappointment - I was told I did not need anything else for installation. It took over two weeks to find a hitch long enough so the bikes wouldn't hit my tailgate. It works okay but I will not use it for long trips.

Very pleased. Installs and stores easy. I had to shore up my receiver to get some play out of it where it fits into my trailer hitch. This was unrelated to the bike carrier. It rides great. Short trips so far, but not afraid to take across country at all.

The bike rack came in a day earlier than expected, in good condition. The instructions were clear and it was very easy to install. It is simple to get the bikes on and off, and the rack is extremely stable, especially over bumpy New York State roads....the bikes don't appear to move at all! We are very pleased with the product!

I was very excited to get such a uniquely designed and so versatile a rack as a present, but after a few calls to the manufacturer to figure how to install and detach this product correctly (the instructions enclosed were very poor, to say the least) I was very disappointed by the need of so many adapters to stop it from either rubbing on the bumper or stabilizing the rack while under load. It shakes quite a lot while driving if it has only 1 bike loaded. The worst part: the cross bar locking it in place is a death trap for fingers, particularly for women's hands. The spring inside the mechanism is loaded under so much tension that is shoots the bar up like a cannon when attempting to fold it and detach it from the hitch. I incurred a T gash on my right thumb that required emergency treatment and three days off work as my right hand was incapacitated from fine motion movement. This rack is going back and I hope the manufacturer is nice enough to understand the problem, modify the design and accept liability for the damage caused. While it is true that the price is very affordable, an injured hand is not the price to pay for it.

Is this rack sturdy enough to carry two bikes on the back of a 5th wheel trailer?
