          Bought this 3 weeks ago, I found to it be nice and lightweight and easy to install for a petite 30 yrd old woman. I have a 2'' hitch and don't notice too much wobbling. I found when you put the bike on in the reverse, it fits fine and the lower strap under the arms secures the front tire just fine and prevents movement. I have a Rav4, so my back door opens from the side, the door doesnt clear the rack when it is lowered but opens wide enough to access what I need.

                It was not easy making a switch from Thule. Having had a Thule roof rack, I wasn't sure about trying another company's carrier. However, now that I'm using a hitch rather than roof system, my local bike shop made a recommendation for the Saris 3 Bike Axis Steel, which was beyond easy to unpack and install. Well-done Saris! My only recommendation is for buyers to also purchase an inexpensive bungee cord to secure the front wheel to the bike during transport.

                      I use my rack to carry 3 bikes. It seems to do the job ok I just wish it would not wobble as much. Due to the 1 1/2in hitch rail, it wobbles alot when in use. It should have an option for a 2in and not use an adapter. Also, the screws that keep the arm from moving need to be a bit sturdier. One of mine has already be striped and I only had my rack for about a month.

                            The product is what was advertised. Two bikes are hard to get synchronized on the arms. The tie down strips are to stiff and difficult to use. It is almost impossible to get around and under cables on the bikes.
