    A good rack for the money!!

    Customer review by RealBikeLover

    A good rack for the money. I mounted the rack to a 1999 Toyota Sienna. I've used the hitch to carry two adult MTB and three kids bikes (Dynacraft 20" Triax PK7) for several local trips. The bikes loaded very easily. The couplings swivel, allowing small bikes to attach with out a crossbar. The rack was very easy to put together and install. The rack has already paid for itself in the enjoyment my family has had biking on several great bike trails with family and friends. Two things I did to prevent the bike rack from being stolen: 1) I use "Master Lock 262DAT Chrome Lug Nut Style Spare Tire Lock" to secure the "No-Wobble Bolt". 2) Replace a 3/8"x3" bolt with a QR CLIP. I can easily remove the rack assembly and put it in my trunk.

    I searched and searched for a good price on a 5 bike rack. I found the best price at Walmart to I promptly purchased one. After getting it home and out of the box, I noticed one of the plastic clips was broken. I found the email address for the Allen company and emailed them to ask what I needed to do to find a replacement. They promptly responded to my email and within 3 days, I had an entire new clip system. The bike rack is sturdy and is easy to slip all our bikes on the rack. I am thoroughly impressed with the Allen company and this bike rack.

    Good Value but needs better quick release pins

    Customer review by jgrf

    4.0 stars by jgrf

    We've only used it a few times and don't know how the more expensive racks compare, but this seems to be a great value at half the cost of other racks. There is a little play between the hitch and the rack and between the lower and upper uprights, so the rack will shift while driving around corners or braking, but everything feels solid with 4 bikes on it. I wish the quick release pins had a more secure locking system (such as locking through the pin instead of around it). Overall, a great value, but probably could be made with parts that fit more snugly together and better quick release pins.

    I have a couple of kids bike i will need to tow along with 2 adult bikes but, am having difficulty ascertaining exactly what adapters, if any, will be needed.
    by an anonymous customer 6/25/2010
    • You will need simple female adapters for all female bikes you carry. You can find these on ebay .

    • as long as your vehicle has a 2" square receiver on the back you'll be just fine. Thats all you need.

    • It is billed as five but that is stretching it a bit. Four should be easy. I'd recommend getting a few bungee cords to keep the front bike wheels from wobbling back & forth into each other. Should have no problem whatsoever from my experience.

    • We have two adult mountain bikes and 2 20" boys bikes that have the odd shaped frames and haven't needed any adapters. Just takes some practice getting the bikes on and off!

    • Carrier requires a "straight" center bar to mount the bikes. If your "girls" bike is a "V" shape frame you will need an adapter.

    When there are bikes on this rack, can the back door of a minivan be opened? Also will this fold flat for storage?
    by j5j6j7j8 5/3/2010
    • Has a pivot to move bike rack away from door to allow door to open.

    • Yes. But not as easy as you might think. There are two pins that keep the rack in upright position. One os bolted at the bottom (the swivel pin) and the other is mid-way up with a retaining clip. If you have all five bikes, the weight pulling back is significant. You have to push the rack forward to allow the pin to slide out of it's hole. Be prepared to handle the weight that now wants to drop to the rear. If on a level surface, it should be sufficiently enough away to open your lift-gate. My '04 Honda Odyssey easily clears the rack and any bike mounted to it. The rack doesn't fold completely flat. Yes the arms drop parallel to the vertical hitch mount, but you still have the 90 degree bend into the hitch receiver that does not fold flush... and no, pulling the pin to swivel does not gain you anything near "flat".

    • It does fold flat. The back does angle away to an extent (not completely down). What you see in the picture is it angled as far as it will go. My minivan lifegate will open with it angled down.

    • I accidentally installed it the first time with my van open... no, it wouldnt close. ha ha! Very very easy and quick to take off and on though. could also purchase or make an extension I bet to give more room. Its just a square pipe extension that you would need.

    • My son uses his with a Jeep Liberty, it's easy your ppulla pin out down low and if needed another at the been and his hatch opens just fine as does my truck tailgate. In fact I often use the rack on a front hitch when pulling my camper.

    • With bikes on it, it would probably be too heavy to pivot down and back up. Without bikes, it's easy - just remove the lower quick release bolt and pivot the rack down. It stops at about 45 degrees. Our Toyota Sienna hatch has no problem opening. The upper portion of the rack folds down for flat storage. The bottom still would stick up, but removing one bolt and separating the bottom from the uprights would allow you to store it flat.

    • Yes this rack has the ability to tip backwards with the removal of a pin so that you can access the back hatch door. The whole rack tips backward (away from the car) to a little more than 45 degrees which presents one small problem, if you have 5 bikes on there it is really heavy to lift it back to the travelling position! 2 people can do it though. and yes it folds mostly flat for storage except for the part that goes into the hitch receiver. It looks a bit like the letter "j" when it is folded flat.
      by TASMAN998/2/2010

    • Yes - you simply remove a pin & the whole unit tilts so you can open the hatch - best if done without bikes on the rack! I have a Toyota 4-Runner & we do this frequently.

    • What's cool about this product is the ability to fold down the whole unit toward the ground. However, I would not recommend doing this with five bikes on it (at most two or three), because it would be difficult to get the bikes back up. I also like that you can fold the carrier on top. These features I believe are standard on most bike carriers of this type.

    • I have mine on a 2010 Honda CRV. If I pull the lower pin and lean the rack out, the hatch door will open. If it was loaded with bikes, I'm sure it would be easier with 2 people.

    Is there a simple,rubberized strap for each side of the bike,or is it a nylon strap that has to be threaded through the hold down..?Seems like the picture shows a difficult threaded hold down,similar to the 3 bike rack i bought at walmart last year,it was a huge pain to attach each bike to its hold downs..Thanks!!
    by reicorp 11/29/2010
    • It's a nylon strap that has to be threaded. I found it to be secure and relatively easy to thread.

    • It's a nylon strap that has to be threaded through the hold down. While it's not a quick release rubber strap, it's ok and it works. It is the least expensive rack out there, and you get what you pay for.

    • The bikes are held in place with nylon straps. It's like the straps on a backpack shoulder strap. They aren't complicated, although it does take several seconds to attach the bike.
