Hard to install


So far I haven't been able to install this bike rack. The manual only has pictures that might as well be hieroglyphics. I'd love to be able to use it soon, but I have to find someone who can do it for me. Maybe there is a youtube video somewhere?? So frustrating!




Great rack, but confusing to install


I'm happy with the rack so far but I wish it had come with installation instructions that went beyond drawings. I had to go online and search for help.
