I bought this rack with the intention of hauling around two adult mountain bikes and three children's bikes. I was a little concerned that the children's bikes wouldn't fit on the rack because they are a little bulkier and shorter than the adult bikes. I had to buy the Frame Adapters so the children's bikes would fit on the rack but, after a little configuration, all five bikes fit perfectly! This rack is sweet and i recommend it to anyone!!


Popped the rack on no problems. the stabilizers worked well. First trip out was just 1 adult bike and two kids bikes. I didn't have too much of an issues getting the kids bikes to attach the rack. This is a well made product, we'll see how it stands up in the long run.


Hello man! Great website ! I really enjoyed reading it.
