Easy to install. I opted for the small attachment allowing use on the 1 1/4 in receiver as it comes out of the box with the 2 in hitch ready. I also purchased the sports bike adaptor for my Trek y-26 and one for my wife's step through bike which makes it easy to load and unload the two bikes.

I bought this rack to haul my family's mountain bikes. It installed quickly and worked flawlessly. I especially like that the arms supporting the bikes stay level regardless of whether the rack is fully up or dropped down to load my car's trunk. This feature also makes the rack great for working on the bikes when not transporting them. It cost a bit more than some more basic racks, but it is definitely worth it.

With four bikes on the rack, they are so close to each other it's hard to keep them from rubbing and scratching each other.

I ride a row-bike and it is 52 pounds so I was really interested in a strong rack and after extensive research I picked this one. My only issue is that there is an adapter for the smaller hitch size making the rack stick out a little further than my previous rack and I live in a city so it makes my car longer and therefore harder to park.
