Once you figure out how to assemble it, it's a bike rack that works well. The assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired. Also, there are a number of retainer clips that you have to detach/re-attach to adjust the rack, pivot it out of the way for access to the back of your car, etc., and they're nearly impossible to detach unless you use some sort of tool. For transporting one or two bikes securely, this is a great bike rack. The practical aspects of putting it together and setting it up might frustrate you, though. I'll give it an unenthusiastic four stars.
