Just used it today for the first time and it worked good. Very easy to set up and fold away. The only thing I would recommend others to check before purchasing is that your bike has the regular "triangle" shape for the frame. Otherwise it would not fit. You can buy an extension unit from Allen Sports to make it fit.

I would recommend this product more but there is only painted metal clips that secure the auto bike carrier to your car. If you value your paint on your car, you must cover the clips with some kind of protective coat.....such as an old bicycle tube rubber cut and glued to the clips with rubber cement.....The company says the painted clips will not harm the car's paint if the carrier is installed properly. Any bump you may hit could transfer weight and move the clips. As installed the carrier is very stable with one bike. I do not have two bikes to carry in order to know how stable it is to use as advertized. The adjustment fasteners loosened as I put the bike on it. I bought the bar for female style bikes but didn't need it because the manufacturer of the bike I had already considered it in their design and it fit easily on the Allen rack. Fastening was easy. The rubber fasteners may crack over time especially if left out in the sun, but were simple and easy to apply.
Paid for a prem rack that will make you wish you
I got this rack and passed on the cheaper model and found that if you want to carry a womans bike or hybrid you have to spend more money for adapters that is left off the box, Box leads you to believe you have everything you need when you'll spend more money. I'm a disabled person and never owned a rack before and this thing hurts me everytime I load it.
