Do not buy this rack!


Like other reviewers have stated, this rack is completely worthless. The straps come undone and slide on the bars. I am extremely disappointed in this product!




Best Bike Rack Ever!


High quality, well-made, sturdy bike rack that has traveled thousands of miles with me! Also affordable & you won't need or want to replace it. I love it & highly recommend it.
