5Great Rack!  Jun 19, 2013 By B
This rack is very solid. I use it with the 2" hitch conversion unit and it is really solid. The pins that allow it to fold out of the way are easy to use and it even comes with a locking pin so it locks to your hitch. Just drove about 150 miles with it and there is no sway at all (As long as you tighten down the hitch pin completely). Used with a mix of 2 mountain bikes and a road bike and they fit well once you get things situated. The parts that strap in the bikes are heavy duty rubber and seems impossible to scratch the bikes. So far I love it!

5I second the first review  Oct 01, 2013 By Martin "HPfan"
I compared features to many other products, and this mount is a clear winner. It appears to be designed by an engineer who can calculate material stress levels. Very solid piece, I mounted it into 1 1/4 Reese hitch for a hand-and-glove fit. The mounting holes were perfectly aligned, and the black mounting bolt comes with a solid lock to prevent the rack theft. The fit into the Reese hitch is very tight, I used a little bit of silicon grease and couple light taps of the mallet to slide the rack into hitch. Because of a very good fit there is no sway or rocking motion. The upper part of the hanger folds down so I can park in garage, the lower part has a hinge to allow a woman to mount the bike without lifting. The VR-701 has a very good gray paint finish, and is as good, if not better, than much more expensive racks in the $300+ category. One note: to prevent loss of the rubber straps, I used nylon fishing line to tie the last loop of the strap into each cradle threading through its side. To immobilize bikes on the rack, I hang them in the opposing directions for balance and tie with the bungee cord to the vertical arm.

2Use for thin framed bikes. Less than 1" inch thick. Otherwise look elsewhere.  Jul 27, 2014 By Amazon Customer
I purchased this rack to carry my road bike and my mountain bike. It says fits all frame types(excluding ones that do not have a top bar), but it does not. If your bike frame is thicker than 1 inch, this mount will not work. The Plastic pieces that cradle the bike frame are only wide enough to fit frames less than one inch.


3good for the money  Jun 01, 2014 By daninct
more manual effort than some of the higher end name brands but for a third of he price you can't go wrong. I am not transporting 5 figure race bikes so something that attaches to a hitch, offers a lock, and the arms fold down, is all I needed and this gives me just that.


3its ok  Jul 19, 2014 By B. Harrison
rack is good, however with larger framed bikes (anything other than old school ten speed) the frame does not fit into the plastic slot designed for it. also the screws that hold the plastic bike holder sticks out and scratches the bike. also 3 bikes are very tight to fit on this.
