    Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, sturdy, and does the job Excellent product. Took me about half an hour to assemble initially. Then takes 1 minute to attach and detach from the towbar, and holds 4 bikes comfortably. Only comment, don't lose the spanner! You need a spanner to secure it on the towbar 30 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Product and Outstanding Service I recently purchase so we could have a family cycling holiday. Ordered with great ease, my husband went to collect and was overwhelmed by the high quality service in store. The product itself is great, I was a bit nervous driving with the alien object on the back of my car worrying it wouldn't be secure enough but I had worried completely necessarily, it was very sturdy and felt very secure... Highlight recommend this product. 26 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid bike carrier Got this built and fitted in store. Its very solid, holds 4 bikes comfortably and is easy to use. There was no wobble of the bikes or the carrier once attached to the tow bar. 22 August 2016
    Rated 2 out of 5 by OK but i would not buy again Once it is properly installed on the towbar it is pretty solid. Have used it for the last 5 years and done many European road trips without any mishap. Some things to be aware of (that i wished someone had told me about before i bought it): 1. Although it takes 4 bikes, the maximum weight is 60Kg. If you are looking at transporting 4 adult mountain bikes, you may want to think about the total weight. 2. The bike carrier itself is very heavy and not easy to move around or store. From that point of view it is incredibly impractical. 3. Think hard about getting a bike carrier that allows access to the boot once the bikes are on. i did not think it would matter much - but it does. Otherwise you have to make sure you absolutely have everything you need packed in the right places before you put the bikes on...and if you have kids, for sure one of them will complain that they need to access something from the back of the car once you have loaded up the bikes. 4. The attachment that fits around the towball is made of 4 metal plates held together by a spring. When these are pushed out too far or too fast they fall apart. it is very flimsy and badly designed. This has happened to me various times. The pieces of metal fall onto the road and the spring ends up rolling away with me trying to grab it and hold onto the heavy bike rack at the same time.. There are no instructions on how to put the metal pieces and the spring back together again inside the attachment. When you are trying to connect the attachment over the towball without the metal pieces falling out and at the same time bearing the weight of the bike carrier, it is not fun and can be very frustrating and tiring. . 5. The plastic feet (that the bike wheels sit on) are flimsy. one of them has already twisted off from normal use. So, in conclusion, it does do the job but I would not buy this model again. it is just too much hassle. i would look for something that is lighter, mounts easier and allows easier access to the car boot. And i would check my planned total bike weight beforehand. 16 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant!!! I bought this for a camping trip to Pitlochry and even though it was quite a short journey from Edinburgh I would have no fears about using it on longer trips. It was very easy to assemble with very clear instructions. Once assembled getting it on to the car was fairly straightforward and rock solid when tightened up. Getting the four bikes on was a little bit fiddly but not a huge deal. Once the bikes were strapped on they didn't move!! I chose this one over the model that tilted and it wasn't much of a hassle removing the bikes to get the boot open. I would highly recommend this product!!! 10 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use product Once assembled this rack is great. Easy to put on & off on my own, easy to load, good solid rack would definately recommend. Value for money 30 July 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy assembly, fitting and use Good product, no frills and does the job greatly. Around an hour to assemble, fitting gets faster as you get used to it (5 mins, no more). Carried four bikes (2 adult, including a dutch bike and 2 kids) with no problems. Excellent value for money! 30 July 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well. Great value. Rock solid. I bought this after reading good reviews and it being lower price than many other 4 bike carriers. I am very happy with it, despite the cons below. PRO: value, solid when mounted, does what it should. CON: Need a strong back to fit it alone, forget the spanner it comes with, difficult to store- it is quite heavy and the number plate board is very vulnerable to being damaged when laid down etc. 29 July 2016
