Rated 5 out of
Convenient and secureIt takes a couple of second to unscrew the bike rack and swing it away. I don't mind it at all. When it swings open, it does so slowly stays in the open position. Using it in the world I haven't been worried that the arm might travel into the street or into a parked car. ,,,,My 1970's, Canadian, woman's road bike (which is worth less than a fourth of the bike rack) doesn't fit nicely on it. I guess that's to be expected. I flip my bike upside-down and get a fair mount that way.,,,,I have noticed a swing and bounce of the rack but not much. I also like the locking system that goes into the hitch, it gives me peace of mind.
