    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

    I need to carry two ebikes and their total weight is almost 100 pounds and this rack does fine for both. Low loading height makes is easier to get the bikes onto the rack. The rack was very easy to assemble. I love hte 3/4 inch head bolt to mount the rack to my 1.25 inch hitch. Only person that will be able to steal this will need to have a 3/4 inch wrench handy.

      Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

      I think all the negative reviews of this product were from people who didnt read the description very well. I bought this rack with regular and fat tire holders for less that $200. A steal! Yeah it might be a little clunky to adjust but so what. It works, and it works with EVERYTHING I have thrown at it. (Note- I have no "female" framed bikes.) I was careless and forgot to clamp the top tube once. Bike tipped over with minimal damage and the velcro held on well. You do need to think about which bike to put in which position so both bar clamps can go down far enough to hold the top tube. Bikes stay attached well on our pothole strewn oHIo roads.

          Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

          Easy to assemble. Had a Saris 3 bike hitch carrier that required lifting the bike up on it. Short arms made is a pain. Also, it scratched the frame every time I used it. Lastly, it blocked my rear view camera. My friends have the Thule original. I am very pleased with the Nashbar "knockoff".

            I love this rack. I ride because I love it and my son races. We are hauling bikes 4 to 5 times a week and this rack is perfect! I wish I would have gotten it a long time ago! Assembly is the only down side, but isn't too hard to put together.

              I bought one 2 years ago and used it faithfully until it was damaged in an accident. Was so happy with it I replaced it with the exact same thing. Velcro strap to tie the tires down holding the bike securely.

                  The price was right, and so I made the transition from a strap-on bike carrier to the trailer hitch bike carrier for ease in transporting two bikes.

                    You get what you pay for and this was inexpensive. It is lightweight but holds my mountain bike securely.It does not lock which is something I will want my next rack. The biggest problem is that one of the hold down arms has a bolt hole that is too small for the adjustment bolt to pass.So, I can only use it to transport one bike. Poor M
