    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design change? The bar I bought recently was not as in the picture upon the website. At the store when I collected, it was apparent that the 'ends' are bolted on. There is a nut and bolt, with the nut and some threaded bolt sticking out one side. I mentioned that this may be problematic with my carrier but would give it a go. On fitting the bar, then bike to the hanging rack, the exposed nut and bolt end fouled the strap at one end. Over time this would damage the strap so the bar was returned for a 'no quibble' refund. Ultimatey, I guess this won't happen to everyone but I wanted to mention the design change and how it impacted upon my use. The rack I have is a Buzzrack Buffalo 4.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Does what it says on the tin, worked ok. Only thing I would have wanted more was that if the length would have been a little smaller, it would have fitted perfectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ticks the box Bought in a hurry when realised I couldn't use the bike rack without it. Much cheaper than other makes but does the job very well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a locking thumbscrew Good product but really needs a locking mechanism or a locking thumbscrew to lock the extendable bar in place. This would keep the bar locked solid and secure when in position. I would recommend this product if it had a locking mechanism.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful I bought this bar in order to use my maintainence stand without clamping the gear cables which run underneath the top tube. This cross bar works perfectly above the top tube, sitting below the the seat and the handlebars. The one end is a little narrow, so must be used on the seatpost, and the other end is a little loose under the handlebars so there is a bit of movement, but generally this does not prohibit using this bar for the purpose I wanted. Good product.
