          Wanted a hitch mount carrier for the convenience after using strap on carrier for many years. This had the features I needed at a good price. I don't feel like I had to compromise.

                      I bought my rack 2 years ago and it has held up perfectly; easy to load and unload bikes, has held heavy mountain bikes with odd frames (full suspension). The mount locks to car receiver, the removable post locks to the mount, and there is an integrated cable lock for the bikes; very secure. One thing I'd recommend is molding the receiver portion of the rack from either hi-visibility orange or yellow so it's not "forgotten and found by the shin bone" when the rack is removed and you are loading things in the back of the car. ;~)

                            Purchased 3 months ago after a cheaper bike rack broke. Super lightweight, easy to take on and off, not a bad price point for the quality it offers. Straps are super easy to tighten and loosen.

                                        Our first hitch rack. Drove to FL and back, about 3,000 mi. on first use. Easy on/off and swing down for opening rear entry on Hyundai Santa Fe. Some side to side sway, as mentioned in other reviews, but not a real problem. Very solid and stable on the vehicle. Also bought lock system which is easy and efficient. Whole package a great value.

                                                    Bought this 3 weeks ago, I found to it be nice and lightweight and easy to install for a petite 30 yrd old woman. I have a 2'' hitch and don't notice too much wobbling. I found when you put the bike on in the reverse, it fits fine and the lower strap under the arms secures the front tire just fine and prevents movement. I have a Rav4, so my back door opens from the side, the door doesnt clear the rack when it is lowered but opens wide enough to access what I need.

                                                          Would help if it fit a 2 inch trailer hitch. The 1 and 1/2 inch mount plus a plastic adapter to fit it is not quite stable enough for my comfort.

                                                                Like the ease of use and installation, but feel the rack should include something to keep front wheels stable. Without something to prevent the front wheel from turning, the bike's handlebars closest to the vehicle turns and rubs on the liftgate.
