This is a great rack! Good price point with excellent features!
This rack is amazeballs!!!! It is sooooooo awesome. Prior to this, we bought and returned the Thule 9027 Apex Swing Away 4 Bike Rack because we had nothing but problems with it. The Thule was very hard to get 4 bikes and when we unscrewed the I bolt to release the swing-arm, we could not get it screwed back in with the weight of the bikes on it.

Best Bike System I have Used – It literally takes less than 10 seconds to put the bike in the truck and secure it. The nice thing is that it does not matter the design, whether it is a hard tail, FS, DH, or any other bike.. all of them fit.
I have (accidentally) hit railroad tracks going way to fast, and the bike held perfectly secure and upright even with the truck going airborne
for a second. I am sold on the product. For the price point and convenience it does not get any better than this.

This rack is the bomb. It’s very heavy duty and durable. It was extremely easy to put together and mount on our vehicle. I love that we can lower it, which makes it much easier to get the bikes on. The spring assist is awesome. It really helps to raise and lower the rack with the weight of the bikes. I am a petit woman and I can lower and raise the rack with 4 mountain bikes on (it’s heavy, but I can do it). Another great feature is that the bikes stay level when you lower it. They don’t all go crashing into the pavement. We are a family of mountain bikers and it was a bit tight when trying to get 4 mountain bikes on the rack. We had to take the pedals off to get all 4 bikes on, but that was really not a big deal (this is not a problem that is specific to this rack. I have found that all hitch mounted 4 bike racks are a tight fit). I would totally recommend this rack to anyone that needs a hitch mounted rack for multiple bikes.

If you have a van, SUV, or other vehicle with a back that opens, this is the perfect rack. It allows you to load your bikes and keep them loaded, yet with the pull of a spring loaded release, you can let the bikes pivot out and down while keeping the arms holding the bikes level. You can then get into the back of your vehicle. When you are done, just push it back up and it locks in place automatically. Goes on in 2 minutes and is rock solid. The bikes load easily and are secure.
I did a lot of research before buying this rack. I can comfortably say you will not find another swing away, or pivot out of the way bike rack for anywhere near this price. It is solid, easy to use, and works perfectly.
