Beware of gusty winds

I recently gave up my $20 bike rack to a friend who needed to drive cross country and thought I would upgrade.

I found this rack to be much more complicated and had difficulty maneuvering the angle of rack with the outside triggers.

While driving on the open road which was relatively windy I saw that the bike was bouncing. I pulled over and tightened the straps, but a few minutes later my bike was no longer visible. Luckily or unluckily, I had the front tire strapped to the frame and my bike was dragged along the road.

I am definitely going back to my old rack where the straps go through the buckle and are less likely to flip off with jostling.
