    Great Value, buy a couple Walmart Plastic bungies

    Customer review by sailndays

    Best Deal for the money. Have taken two bikes to the Lake. Worked great! Love the fold down aspect so one can get in the back end of the SUV while bikes are mounted. The rack performs well. Based on bike shop guy's recommendation, used some duct tape to wrap a hand towel around the post, this padding protected the bike from scuffing. (wife has a new, expensive Electra, no scratches allowed). The mounting bolt has an extra anti-wobble thingy built in if you tighten the bolt enough. A bungie helps keep front tire from wobbling. True on any rack. Walmart sells bungies that have plastic or hard rubber hooks. They are large and won't scratch your bike. As with any bike carrier, always use a Bike Rack Adapter Bar (goes from the handle bar neck to the seat post) when mounting a ladies bike. Walmart's inexpensive Allen adapter bar works OK, but... recommend getting the Yakima branded one at a sport shop. The Walmart Allen model has bare metal that could scuff your bike, the Yakima one is coated with something that resists scuffing. From experience, mount the Front tire to opposite side of car as your exhaust pipe. This prevents frying your bike tire.

    Good product great price. Pros:easy assembly, great price, holds bikes really well, able to pull pin on bracket to lean rack over for access to rear door, over all good rack Cons: hitch screw included was smaller than standard size, although screw came with anitwobble Fitting it still had alot of wobble during normal driving. Tip replacing the 3/8" hitch screw (included) with a 1/2 hitch pin (sold separetly) made the rack more stable...

    Allen 3 Bike Rack VS Bell 2 Bike Rack
    10/18/2011

    Customer review by jangels

    3.0 stars by jangels

    The Allen bike rack will hold 3 bikes, where the Bell will hold 2. We only have 2 bikes to haul, but considered the Allen 3 Bike Rack simply to try and space our bikes further apart, so they didn't rub each other. The Allen Bike Rack is a much taller rack which places the bikes further up into the back window of our SUV. We found it harder to load the bike at the higher level (due to our height and weight). The Bell allows the bikes to be a lower level, not affecting the view out the back window as much, plus easier loading. Its true what other reviewers are saying about their concern on the receiver of the Allen 3 Bike Rack. The Allen Rack receiver has rounded corners instead of being squared off. Both the Allen and Bell Bike Rack will fit a 2" or 1 1/4" hitch. Both racks have spacer parts to leave on for the 2" hitches or remove the spacer for them to fit the smaller hitch. There tends to be some play in the connection of the Allen Receiver, due to rounded corners (where the Bell receiver is square and leaves no play). The Allen Receiver has to be installed and removed with 2 tools. Plus, the Allen uses a bolt that only slides into the side of its receiver with a nut screwed onto it. The No Wobble Bolt that Allen provides does take almost all of the play out of the rounded corner receiver. However, you have to be careful putting their bolt in the correct hole. There is a larger hole in the receiver for a larger bolt intended for the 2" hitch. The smaller hole intended for a smaller bolt is meant for the 1 1/4" hitch. We mistakenly slid the smaller bolt into the larger hole and the play was horrible. Trial and error, we found the problem. The Bell Receiver has a threaded hole in the receiver and a bolt that screws into it and then a nut that screws onto that. Bell includes 2 factory made tools in their packaging. It only takes ONE tool to install the nut, but they provide you an extra tool for another vehicle in case you switch the rack back and forth between vehicles. Takes a little more fumbling to install the Allen Bike Rack with the two tools, but overall its almost the same amount of time to remove either rack. The Allen Bike Rack has straps that feed back through a latch (much like a motorcycle helmet) to strap down the bikes, where the Allen 2 Bike Rack uses latches with velcro straps. Both racks pivot and both racks lay down the bike holder arms when you aren't transporting. While the Allen Bike Rack has used heavier steel (maybe because its meant to hold more weight), the Bell Bike Rack looked overall better to us. The Allen Bike rack will hold up to 100 pounds and its suggested you put the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle. The Bell Bike Rack will hold up to 70 pounds. The width of the arms that you feed the bikes onto varies on both units also. With my husband's bike, it was almost a tight fit on the Allen Bike Rack. The arms on the Allen are 16" wide to feed the bike up and onto. The Bell Bike Rack arms were 14" wide. For the Approx. $21 difference between the prices of the Bike Racks (with the Allen 3 bike rack being lower) AND with us only needing a rack to hold 2 bikes....we decided after comparing both units side by side, we were more impressed with Bell 2 Bike Rack and it fit our needs much better. Hope this review helps!

    Will the tongue length clear the spare tire on the back of my Rav4?
    by an anonymous customer 6/8/2010
    • you need 5" of clearance from the end of receiver and straight up. Inside 5 inches you will be cutting it close to the tire. I can't see the receiver in the picture but if it is tucked in underneath it might not work unless you have and extension.

    • I suggest you purchase a "Spare-tire" mounted rack. If you do want a hitch-mounted rack the vertical post of the rack extends 6 inches past the receiver (i.e. it depends entirely upon the location of the receiver).

    • You may need a hitch extension. Depends on how far the tire sticks out. From the end of the hitch tube to the inside of the vertical tube, it' 7 1/2 inches.

    • I have a Toyota Rav 4 2003 and I use the rack on it. I had to get an extension which I found at Harbor Freight about $16. The rack works great

    • Probably not without an extension. I use it on an Isuzu Trooper - with an externally mounted spare tire. To use the rack as it came out of the box - I had to remove the spare and toss it in the back of the Trooper. I purchased an extension/adapter from Harbor Freight (http://tiny.cc/hitchadapter) which works great.

    • I doubt that it will work with your Rav4. I bought this rack to use with my Ford Ranger, and was hoping it might work with my Jeep Liberty with the rear spare tire. It doesn't even come close to reaching the receiver on the liberty.
