Pay attention to every setup!

The rack secures itself very well to my 2006 Civic, however, the adjustable shoes for the bike frame slide when driving. My bike, which was firmly mounted before a 350 mile trip slid about 5 inches on one side backwards, tipping the front wheel into my muffler and melting a brand new $55 tire & tube. I intend to fix the rack with a pipe clamp, but will never again trust the front wheel on the inside most bike.

Conditions will be different for different cars-I got the rack because it seemed to have the softest pads on the car side (a Saris model made a mess of my trunk lid). The 4 straps on this model are easier than 6 individual straps (both for 6 hooks) and it installs in about 2 minutes. I am not a huge fan of the locking mechanism as it is the only cheap feeling part of the rack-it is sometimes hard to align the lock in place.

I purchased it at $124, it was worth it at that price.

This rack is very good. It is far superior to another brand I bought and couldn't use. The difference is that this rack has superior build quality with superior materials, and it holds the bikes out from behind the car far enough that the bikes don't hit up against the rear of the car, scratching it as the other rack did. Highly recommended for a trunk-mount type of rack.
