After researching a few other racks, both 4 bike and 2 bike, we decided to get this one. Others online and in stores were approximately $50 more than this one so we thought twice about "you get what you pay for." But, in this situation- we couldn't be happier! This rack was super easy to install and use. It fits our 2 bikes PERFECTLY with no slack for banging around. The appearance of this rack is nice and the use of it is not a nuisance. We installed it on a 2002 Ford Explorer and it folds up nicely for access to the back hatch door or to pop the glass opening. Consider this product before checking the specialty and department stores- it really is great!
Very good product -- the speedometer works great. Has many other functions, but not real user friendly. The instructions are horrible. They are not clear and you need a magnifying glass to read them. I only gave it four stars because of the instructions for mounting and use -- the product is very good.
These are solid panniers at a great price point. Highly recommended. Solid construction, and the only flaw I can see is that I wish they had D-rings sewn into the top so I could attach a strap and turn them into a messenger bag. Not mentioned in the description, but they come with plastic inserts that can be fitted into slots in the bags to give them a permanently-expanded profile. I have them in for now, although they would fold flat and store a lot easier without them. I suppose that if you aren't transporting non-smooshable contents (such as puppies, fragile glass flasks of caustic chemicals, or your collection of porcelain figurines), you don't really need the inserts. Bottom line: a really solid pair of bags for a perfect price. If you're concerned that they're made of tissue paper and popsicle sticks, don't be; they're quite solid. If you have a bike, a rack, and need to run errands with said items, these are a great way to get it done.
