When you're ready for a ride, the last thing you want to deal with is a complicated roof rack. You don't need those crazy self–adjusting levers, cam–locking doodads or mandrel–bent gizmos—you want a rack that holds your bike steady and secure even when you're rolling over rugged terrain. For a no–nonsense carrier that doesn't need a dictionary–sized set of instructions, deck out your ride with the Swagman Standard Roof Bike Rack—the minimalist's choice for secure bicycle transportation.
Using your Swagman Standard Roof Mounted Bicycle Rack is as easy as 1–2–3. Just pop off your front wheel, plant the fork in its 9mm skewer and cinch up the quick–release rear wheel strap. Bam—you're ready to head out to the trail, the beach or the track.
Best of all, Swagman Standard Roof Mount Bike Racks work with almost any aftermarket or factory–installed roof rack system. Round, square and 3" oval crossbars—it mounts perfectly to all three. On top of that, Swagman backs your Standard Bike Rack with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Most cost effective solution for roof mounting that I could find. Once assembled, the bikes where sturdy and did not move at all. Just completed a ~1000 mi road trip with no problems. Requires ~ 8" of space for the front mount plate and should be checked for tightness every time a bike is mounted.

I decided to read the instructions (what a mistake) I was better off looking at the pieces and putting it together. Other than that the product is good, I didn't think it was going to fit my 29er but it did just fine. Material is decent but for less than $50 you can't expect too much. Mounting and dismounting is simple and it's easy to carry

Compared to other racks Ive looked into the materials used is lower in quality but you can not beat the price and its universal mounting system. Assembly was fast and easy and there are many mounting holes for different adjustments , however, some tools are required. Bike mounting was also just as easy. The only thing i would have preferred is a locking system because with the mounting knobs it can easily be taken off the roof but again for the price its well worth it.
