SportRack 3-Bike SUV and Van Trunk Mount Bike Rack
Great for going long distance trips
Fits well on a van and and it would be great if it held four bikes cause otherwise you need a roof rack and that is around the same price.

Not for kids bikes
When the product description says "Can carry up to three adult bikes" it means it can carry up to three bikes, and only adult bikes. Children's bikes do not fit even with the optional adapter as the adapter is to big for kids bikes.

easy to use; good buy
Mounted two bikes on my minivan in 10 minutes with no diffculty; sturdy design; stable during entire camping trip
The 80" strap is too short so I used the tail ends of the other six straps and secured all bikes with no concern of safety.

Easy to use and relatively sturdy !
I bought this bike rack after purchasing the Raleigh Serengetti. Having previously owned a bike rack which worked in the same fashion I was sketchy due to the fact that the previous one broke while driving on the highway thus resulting in two scrapped bikes !
However I purchased this one and so far so good ! It is sometimes difficult to get a good fit on my car (a chrysler Intrepid), but once it is on it makes for a very sturdy fit !
So far so good!

Good carrier for the money
The only issue with this versatile carrier is about the two top straps: if your vehicle is a hatchback and there is some kind of a wind deflector at the top of the hatch door the straps may pull it down when tensioned. I have to put two blocks of high-density foam between the straps and the window in order to give the straps an angle and avoid the pressure on the plastic deflector (which also contains the cyclops stop light). It is otherwise very sturdy and will hold 3 bikes well as long as they are not too heavy. We use it for long haul trips to Montreal with no problem. Installs in a snap.

Great for our Van
This carrier is easy to use and works great. The price is excellent. We used to try and throw our bikes in the back of the van, but this saves space for the rest of our gear

Surprisingly easy to use
At first we were hesitant to buy this product, as it looked not so easy to use, but after the first adjustment, it is very easy to put on and remove. Definitely would recommend it for the price.

Worth the money
My boyfriend and I bought this bike rack for our bikes that we were taking with us to Ottawa on a trip from Hamilton. I was hesitant at first because of the high speeds that we'd be taking this bike rack on and for the first little while kept looking back to ensure the bikes were still on the car. In all honesty I had nothing to worry about. This bike rack is easy to install and to remove from your car and it holds the bikes securely to the vehicle. I would not change this bike rack for a different model.
