Not a 4 bike rack

By 

from Las Vegas

Comments about 9025 Apex 4 Bike:

It's a 4 bike rack that doesn't fit 4 bikes. Seriously, I can not fit 4 bikes on this thing. There is not enough room in between the bikes. If anyone has been able to fit 4 full sized bikes, please, show me a video.

Does the job

Comments about 9025 Apex 4 Bike:

This is a fine bike rack. It looks great on my car and is compact when not in use. The folding hitch is perfect for when I need rear access to my car. The anti-swing cages do a pretty good job at minimizing the overall swing of the bike(s) on the rack while driving but there is still some movement. All of that said, there are flaws worth noting with this rack:
1. There is no easy way to secure the front wheels from moving from side to side and bumping the other bikes on the bike rack or just swaying out of control. My solution to this was to buy bungee straps that secure each wheel in place. (I've never used the strap provided with this rack to secure the front wheels successfully.)
2. This is a 4 bike, bike rack but only 2-3 (road) bikes fit comfortably. When you do put more than 2 bike racks on this rack make sure to wrap and secure a towel around any area of the bikes that could possibly rub. When I had 3 expensive road bikes on this rack one bike suffered an expensive scratch on the di2 derailleur from the neighboring bike's minimal sway during the drive.
3. The anti-swing cage has fallen off my rack while driving without bikes on it 3 times in the different locations meaning I have had to replace 3 anti-swing cages and 3 straps that go with it. I frequently check to make sure the anti-swing cages are tight and secure but somehow they always end up missing.

Outs and good quality of product!!!

Comments about 9025 Apex 4 Bike:

Fantastic product and good quality. We have had it for over 3 yrs installed on our SUV. I am a triathlon athlete and travel with the family everywhere in the US with it (yes, using all 4 bikes slots). I have not had a need to even replace the straps due weather conditions. I took me this long to write because I wanted to make sure of the quality before giving me comments.
