    Excellent product! Usto have fork mounted roof mounts and this is far superior. ease of use is incredible as well as stability. also yesterday on a hot day it was extremely easy to take off cover and tighten the straps, other mounts are typically way more difficult to adjust and mess with. a friend got two as well. great buy!

    I have had two of these racks on my my truck for years and have abused them! These things have a brilliant mounting mechanism that speeds install/uninstall, and work well in a multitude of rack/bike setups, yet they are BOMBPROOF! I've taken these racks down tons of washed out roads and off road trails with and without bikes on them and have never had a single problem.

    Worth every penny

    I bought two of these Brass Knuckles bike carriers and added the fattie adapters. Carried two fatties on top of my Jeep Cherokee for 5 hours this weekend without issue. I added the locks which are a must. Hats off to this carrier.

    So much easier!

    Posted by Joon O. on Apr 2nd 2018

    I bought this last season with the hopes that it would make getting to the trails simpler than the fork mount tray I’ve had for years. Wow! What a difference. Super easy to get the bike on and off. Easy to lock. Great customer service. Outside of investing in a hitch mount system, it couldn’t get any easier. I love the fact that parts are available to purchase and replace if the wear out or break thru use.

    Best roof rack I've ever owned

    Posted by Michael Jordan on Jan 18th 2018

    What I love about this rack. 1. Just about everything 2. Super sturdy 3. Nice looking 4. As aerodynamic as a bike rack can be 5. Fits my 2.8 tires with ease and could accommodate much larger like 3.0 6. Holds my bike on with such positive, solid, scratch free, no worries, almost bombproof ease. 7. Makes my cross bars more solid with the racks beefy construction. I have owned many racks in my 40+ years of riding. This is a next level rack. It outperforms and accommodates so many bikes. Compared to my Thule T2 Classic hitch rack this rack has it beat hands down in every respect I found no faults so far with this rack.

    Not bad

    Posted by Josh D. on Jan 4th 2018

    I like the rack, I just purchased my second one. Reason I'm not impressed, is the second rack does not have the clips for the ratchet strap to attach to. Now when loading or attempting to unload the straps get stuck in your spokes. A couple times its almost broke.
