I rate this rack low because I bought this rack 1 year ago and one of the rubber straps broke and I almost lost my bike. Now another has broken. To replace them is a royal pain that took forever. I also have a Saris Bones for my other car and must say the plastic binding straps they have are far better and way more durable.
