The construction and quality of the Thule Vertex Swing exceeded my expectations. At first I thought the bike rack was not going to function properly, but once installation was completed, awesome. It's very easy to load and unload my bike. Bikes fit properly as well as they're very secure, even during the swing action to get into the truck. I would recommend this product for transporting their bikes. The Vertex rack is a piece of art hanging on the back of my truck empty.
