        Affordable and stoked it is made in USA, but hard to fit any smaller frames on towards the inside of the rack.

        Super lightweight!

              I have a small car and wanted something that could carry 4 bikes. Since this bike rack is so lightweight compared to other 4 bike carriers it works well with a 1 1/4 inch hitch. The first time I slid it on the hitch, it was difficult to get all the way on. The same with removing it, for the first time. It required quite a bit of force. Though, the second time I put it back on, it was much easier to get on and off. So, if you have this problem, it'll probably get better with time, but it worried me at first. Also, another negative is that if you have the arms in the down position when it's not in use, the tighteners do not tighten the arms down 100% tight. I am able to move the arms on the smooth surface versus them being engaged on the grooves. I figured out a way of slightly having them on the grooves while still having them away from the bumper. I love the rack overall and would've got the same one if I were to make the purchase again. It's great that I can manage with one hand to bring the rack down and open the hatchback. Other racks, I imagine with the weight that you couldn't manage. Overall, the pros are the weight and low profile. The ratcheting straps can be a pain but, I will say, that difficulty means that it's staying put.

              Solid rack with little wobble!

                    I've had this rack for about 6 months now, and it has been great; I can confidently a few bicycles and not feel like i have to keep checking to be sure they aren't left on the highway somewhere. My friends say I have a great rack! That being said, the yellow lever to lower the rack for accessing the hatch broke. It's still usable, but one of the sides broke off so it's a little uncomfortable to use now. The only other complaint I have is raising and lowering the arms where the bikes mount to can be a little tricky as one of the sides sticks and needs to be wiggled to loosen it. I'm really happy with this rack!

                          I bought this last year to transport mostly my kids bikes back and forth from summer daycare and scout camps. It is easy to take on and off. I did get the hitch lock too. I had one of the plastic side end caps break when the hitch was dropped and the company sent me new replacement caps right away for free which was wonderful!!

                                When I want to get on the bike and ride, but not at home, I keep the Rack on my cars' hitch and just GO. No fuss, no muss.

                                      Bought my Axis 4-bike rack last summer. I appreciate its light weight and ease of use. No more hoisting the bikes onto a rack on top of the car, and no more having to remove the front wheels. Makes transporting the bike fleet a breeze!

                                            price is right however this rack needs some modifications, it would be nice to have the straps on the top that cradle the bike removable because when I slide my bike to the one closest to the vehicle the two spare holder straps jam me up to slide it to the cradle it grabs the cables on the bike, so I had to tape the two middle ones down looks Bad. Also if one of these straps would go bad you have to replace the whole arm. Also spray all straps with silicone lube it makes them work a lot easier.

                                                  Well built, light weight, fits easily into the hitch receiver. 4 bikes fit well, straps snug easily & tilt mechanism is easy & allows good access to back of vehicle. Only minor drawback is the 3/4" bolt in the hitch but that is minor.
