    Comments about 9026 Apex 5 Bike:

    We're a family of five and the Apex 5 is a great way for us all to transport our bikes. Two of our bikes are for smaller kids, so they're a tighter fit, but even they get on. The rack also goes on and comes off very easily, and both the hitch lock and bike lock work perfectly. (Note about the other review: there's no need to thread the bike lock through the frame, because there's no way to remove a bike when the lock is simply pulled over the top and locked.) Overall, this is a terrific product.

    Cradles Slide while bikes are in transit

    • Solid Contruction

    Cons

    • Cradles Slide too easily

      Comments about 9026 Apex 5 Bike:

      This is a great bike carrier except for one flaw: The cradles that the bikes rest on slide together when transporting the bikes. By the time I get to my destination, the bikes are bunched together either at the front of the rack or the back which causes the bikes to bang together. I called customer service and they had no solution for me other than to put some zip ties on the bar on either side of the cradles.

      Pros

      • Easy To Install

      Cons

      • Short cable lock

      Best Uses

        Comments about 9026 Apex 5 Bike:

        It is easy to install and remove although somewhat heavy. I make sure it's on tight at the hitch and I don't notice any wobble while driving.

        I'm a bit disappointed with the built-in short cable lock. I could not lock my wife's bike running the cable through the frame using the frame adaptor. So I find it useless.
