Use the rack to carry my race bike and wife's beach cruiser. The bikes fit very well on the rack, and the locks worked very well (provided with the rack).

The bike rack is solid and sturdy. Directions warn against using rack on rough trails, and I can see why. When you come up on a speed bump take your speed down a notch or two, otw the bikes enter that brief weightless period like riding the back of a school bus and land a bit rough. The rack tilt away from the clam door of the Escape makes easy access without removing bikes. It also assist loading inside bike with vertical support up, or put support down load inside bike then swing it up.

We wanted a platform rack that was affordable, easy to use, and would protect our expensive road bikes from bike to bike contact. After reading reviews and seeing what was available we chose the Saris Thelma with three bike option so everyone in the family could take a bike. The rack was easy to assemble, is lightweight and somewhat compact. The bikes fit well and are pretty stable. We have used this bike rack on a couple of 3 hr trips and haven't had any problems.
