Very Easy to install, Easy to use, Packs down small, I am still trying to find something that I do not like about this rack but I am struggling mightily to do so. Great Rack for the price. I am guessing this will be a popular rack once it gains more traction in the market. Thanks RockyMounts, well done
I wanted a rack like this instead of hanging it from the bike frame. I had a yakima rack and the bikes would rub and hit each other when braking. My new Pivot 429 forced me to get a new rack to keep the bike from getting damaged. It arrived a day after i ordered it (i live in Ft. Collins) and was pretty easy to assemble. I like that it has an adapter and can use it on either 1.25" (my wife's car) or 2" (my Outback). You need to slide the wheel cups on and bolt, it was pretty easy as everything lined up well. My bike fits well and driving around, it is very solid. I ride with a neighbor a lot and use his Kuat rack, and the handlebars are always hitting the other bike. One this one, the back bike sits higher than the front and the bikes fir a lot better. I only used it twice, but so far, really good choice.
