I was looking for a rack for my pickup bed that would be secure and also allow me to leave the front wheel on the bike during transport. The INNO Velo Gripper certainly meets those requirements. In my opinion, it was quite pricey (about $70) for a couple of small brackets, but that seems to be the going price and AutoAnything's price was very competitive with Amazon's price, but Amazon didn't offer free shipping which is why I chose AutoAnything. AutoAnything also had promptly answered some questions I had before ordering about the rack fitting my truck.
The rack arrived promptly after I ordered it and I installed it in a matter of minutes with no problem. I've used it a couple of times and the bike fits snugly and securely.
My only complaint is that the instructions say to store the rack out of the sun when not in use. My truck sits outside, so I have to remove the rack after each use. Not a major deal, but a minor bother. Overall, this rack fits my needs and I'm very pleased.
