Thumbs Up:
The Mount rack is very easy to install and to fold/unfold. The rack allows for 2 bikes to be carried WITHOUT having to remove the front wheels. Once you arrive to the trailhead, simply untighten the holding mechanism and you are ready to go! The rack is able to carry all sorts of bikes, we were able to fit two 29er bikes at the same time.


Thumbs Down:
This rack is not compatible with vehicles that have a rear exhaust system. Jeremy’s Pilot has such system and he experienced that the heat of the exhaust was transmitted to the wheels of the bikes thus causing possible damage if exposed for an extended period of time.

Bottom Line
:
We took the rack to the 2007 Sea Otter Classic with the Woodstock 707 and the Gary Fisher X-Cal on the rear with no issues. Well, there was one issue, on the second day we discovered that either one of the wheel trays had been stolen or it vibrated off the rack. In either case, I should have folded the rack and locked it to avoid such mishap.

I really like this rack, it super convenient and it allows me to carry more stuff in the back of my truck. For $89.98, this rack is an excellent deal that I totally recommend.
