We thought it was the perfect rack for what we needed. Holds 2 bikes and attaches on the bumper of Travel Trailer. The rack is not sturdy enough to hold 2 bikes. It bent and the clamps broke and our bicycles were totally damaged. It is like we took three $100 bills and flushed in down the toilet. By the time we returned from our tripm Overstock would not give us any refund because the purchase was over 30 days.

The rack was very simple to assemble. My 12 year old son did most of the work, it went together in 15 minutes. The pricing was $20 less than I found on E-bay for the same model. The rack is somewhat lighter than I imagined, but I am not dissapointed.

It was what I thought it would be for the money. We chained it to the house and then our bikes to the rack. We haven't had anymore bikes stolen since.

Overall, the product works well. I needed on that would stand off from the wall and this worked. However, you need to make sure the top plate is placed under a truss or joist in your ceiling because if placed just against Sheetrock, it could caused it to bow up and crack. I had to add a wood support in the right place, but it was easy because I had easy access to the attic space above. Depending on the weight on your bike, you may have problems with the top hanger. The pole diameter at the top is too small for the clamp to grab tight enough to hold up a heavier bike. Mine slide down and fell off. I had to wrap a piece of rubber around the pole, then use the clamp...that made it tight enough. One more little thing...the large knob that you tighten to secure the hangers at the correct angle does not tighten enough, at least for my bikes...they move anyway to find their natural weight distribution angle....but, I have worked through all that and my bikes now hang out of the way very nicely.

I am very happy with my purchase and l am looking forward to other overstock purchases. In 10 minutes I had my road and mountain bike off my floor. Very easy to assemble and light weight. I will purchase another Swagman for the other 2 bikes sometime this month. Great price and quality. I would def recommend to others. I give this produce 5 stars!!

This handsome bike rack feels stable and was easy and quick to assemble. I find it a tight fit for four adult bicycles because the bike handles overlap. But I did not see any better product out there so I am very happy with my purchase.

Easy to put together. Only issue is that it's super light. My husband is going to weld some steel plates to the bottom to keep it steady. We can fit 3 kids bikes and 3 scooters. I don't think that 6 bikes would be very easy to fit onto the stand.

Purchased this to transport my bikes. Fits snug in the back of my truck bed. I especially like the locking feature. Be careful when pressing the release button. It is a simple button spring that can be pushed in too far and difficult to retrieve. Overall, I give it 4 stars. I would have given it 5 stars if the button/spring release was better made.

I love the Swagman Bike Truck Rack, I don't even take it out of the truck. Better than lying a bike down in the bed of the truck.

This product sets up very easily and provides dependable elevated storage. I use it in my dining room, where my bike was taking up space on the floor. Now it's near the ceiling, almost an added decorative accessory. Remember when putting the product together that the floor and ceiling braces spin onto their threads in opposite directions. Also, the mounting brackets must be very, very tight to hold a bicycle's weight. Once these adjustments are made, mount the bike and forget about it. I got another bike-storage rack for my girlfriend; she uses it on her back patio, under cover.

I had been looking for this Swagman bike carrier for our RV online at several retailers - prices ranged anywhere from about $125 to $175.....got this one for a steal at $** (although the shipping and duties made up the difference a bit at $26.09). Overall still saved a ton of money and very happy with the product! It is good quality, comes with all hardware and instructions, and is exactly what I was looking for. I actually intend to mount the carrier on a bare piece of the rear bumper and put our extra sewage holding tank (for extended trips) in between the rack and the back of the RV.

Excited to receive the new bike rack...only to discover there were missing pieces. The box was not damaged, in fact it was very well packaged. Not sure what happened. I called Swagman direct and then were very nice and helpful. They apologized and said they will send the missing poles. That was 8 days ago, still have not received the missing parts. I called again, and they politely advised they had been shipped, but that it takes 5-7 days. You would think they would expidite the shipping since it was their mistake and the product is useless until I recieve the parts.

At first I was skeptical but seeing the other reviews and took a chance; and I'm glad I did. It took less than 10 minutes to assemble. Especially liked the way different base tubes could be snapped together. What made it even special is the part where these things snap together, they have a rectangular slot instead of a hole - making it very easy to adjust and assemble. I have seen other products where you have to spend 40 to 60 minutes just trying to align all parts and holes together. By the way, I had first ordered a 4 bike gravity bike stand which turned out to be hopeless plus when I had the bikes on it, I was concerned what would happen when my young teen children try taking them off and putting them on. Anyway, this three bike Swagman stand really works out great for my family needs. Please note none of our bikes has disc brakes so cannot comment about whether it work with those or not but I have two mountain bikes and one hybrid, it works great with them.

I bought one of these and it is great. We like it so much we ordered a second one. We haven't done so, but the racks can easily be joined (less end pieces) to make a rack for six bicycles. The only disadvantage is that very small children's bicycles do not fit properly in it, but those bikes generally have training wheels or kick stands, so the bike rack really isn't needed.

The bike stand was easy to assemble. It holds the bicycles easily and safely. My boys find it easy to use. We don't have to worry about our vehicles being damaged by the bikes falling over anymore! Great product.
