Comments about 594XT Sidearm:

I own two for the top of my Subaru Cross-trek. The rack is frustrating and time consuming to put together, printed directions are hard to follow, especially when changing over the 2nd rack to Driver Side. We ended up having to YouTube directional videos. First trip to Bend OR, had to stop multiple times to tighten down the side arm and make adjustments to the wheel strap because the front wheel (29er) would pop up off the tray. Once properly adjusted, the bikes stay put well. But it was extremely stressful with two $4k mtb. bikes on top of my car! Also, the plastic pieces that cover the front and end of the tray pop off easily, I even lost one in the car wash. Of biggest concern to date, the side arm on the driver side is difficult to swing down (demanding extra strength and force) and when doing this to take my bike off, it over extended and crashed down onto my windshield and shattered it! Now am needing a new windshield. I gave this rack 2stars because it has held multiple of our bikes (townies/ road bikes and mtb. bikes) well once secured, BUT would not buy these again due to the difficulty of assembly and frustration I have with the side arms.


Not the best quality control

The rear wheel strap rivets pulled loose (with minimal pressure) the first time I used this rack. Luckily I had some wireties in the trunk. The basic deign is good, just poor execution on the strap.
