Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation and great performance Needed a trunk rack to carry three bikes, and discovered this rack has been out for years with excellent performance. Found it easy to install and load the bikes onto it. During multiple trips involving highway driving, the rack performed superbly with not one stitch of damage to the car. As an added bonus, discovered we did not need stabilizer bars for my wife's Fuji and my twin daughters' 20-inch bikes which remained level throughout each trip, although other bikes for women and girls may require using this device. This rack remains a truly excellent product that will reliably perform very well carrying up to three bikes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bike Transport - Sort of Just picked this up today and set a t up for my car. I haven't taken it on the road yet but have two concerns: The metal hooks attach directly to painted surfaces on the car and I worry about the metal-on-metal rubbing and damaging the paint on my new car. Secondly, they are hard to fit over and past the other cradles and neither bike sits on the frame as squarely as they do on my hitch-mounted bike rack. I am probably going to return the rack and try a different transport rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I went through alot of research and very glad I chose this model. Easy to put together and good design. I used this for a 1,250mi one way trip on our Honda HRV. We hit 60 mph winds, heavy thunderstorms and 85 mph speeds. Not one worry. The anti sway locks work fantastic. Smart design for storage. Recommend for all.

How many inches are there between each bike holder? Can the bike holders move on the bar if needed?

Asked by: Marble Falls Drip
As the stay-put cradles move on the rack's arms, the spacing will vary based on placement governed by the bikes' frames. You will able to easily carry both adult bikes and children's bikes in any combination possible.
