Rated 5 out of 5 by Buckinator Great bike rack
Got this on sale on the LLBean website at a great price. The rack is built like a tank. Very heavy steel components and well engineered. Goes on my 2010 Ford Escape in about five minutes. While riding, it is rock-steady. Bikes go on and off easily and strap on securely. I like that you can open the tailgate with the rack attached (but bikes off). The rack folds down out of the way with a simple latch. I'm a fan. Has fittings for both 1.25 and 2.0 inch receivers. We have a 2.0 inch receiver. Rack bolts to the receiver for a tight fit so that you get very little sway when underway.

ThuleŽ Vertex 9028 Hitch-Mount Bike Carrier, 2 bike; really made our trip to the Cape very enjoyable! Easy access and portability allowing us to open station wagon back door without removing carrier! Simple to use -highly recommend!

My new bike felt nice and secure when transporting. Carrier was put together by the store personnel, not that it was difficult but I didn't want to deal with it. Also easy to remove from hitch when not needed. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlennO Best Bike Rack ever owned
This bike rack is the best I've ever owned. It is very easy to install, it only took me about 5 minutes. It has a nice tight grip on the bicycle that doesn't allow it to sway or bounce as I drive down the road yet gentle enough not to scratch the paint. It is easy to use and the feature that allows it to fold and lock down so i can open my truck tailgate is awesome. I highly recommend this product to everyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Givemesunshine tuff fit for bikes
The rack is well built but its too hard to get the bikes on and off. the saddles are too big for my bikes and i didn't care for the style of straps to secure the bikes. a ladies bike doesent seat too well and my mountain bike wouldn't fit over saddles either. also you need to use a wrench to attach a bolt to the vehicle hitch No Pin.

I wouldn't purchase this product if you plan on carrying a woman's bike (no crossbar) because you will have to purchase a frame adapter for $39.95 to make the carrier work (probably the same for all their similar carriers).
