This is an excellent bike carrier. Bikes are protected, secure, and you can put them on and take them off in a flash. I guess the only drawback would be the application and removal of the carrier itself to/from the vehicle. It is heavy (50 lbs.)and requires a wrench. So if you don't want to drive around with it all of the time, it becomes a pain to put on and take off. You should ask yourself a question about how much you are going to use it. I use this carrier primarily for long distance transport of my bikes, and a lighter hitch mounted bike rack (frame hang) for shorter day to day use. The price of this carrier is a little steep too, but I am still pleased with the purchase.
