Bike racks are going to be great. The installation was tricky, According to the dealer, the racks should have fit my "07" subaru outback, they did not. Had to buy the adapter bars. After I got the adapter everything installed beautifully. I am 5'4" and another worry was being able to lift both my mnt and road bikes. I will have to carry a small foot stool the adapter bars raised the rack another 5 or 6 inches, I was not happy about that. But with the stool I am able to pop the bikes right into the racks, secure them down and drive off without a worry. I also bought the key locks so don't have to worry about my bikes when I run into the store, ect. The riding season is just starting for me and I am excited to hit the road with my bikes securely locked in place. Would recommend these racks to anyone.
