      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

                    For use when not biking from home.

                    I would have rated it as 5 stars if it were not for the following: Velcro wheel straps, having to bolt it to the hitch, and no way to lock on bikes.

                    You have to use a cable to secure the bike from being stolen.

                    I BOUGHT THIS BECAUSE IT WAS INEXPENSIVE AND I WAS ON A BUDGET. FOR THE MONEY THIS RACK GETS IT DONE, AND IT'S SIMPLE TO USE, HOWEVER THE SIMPLICITY MAKES IT SEEM LIKE A CHEAP PRODUCT. IT FOLDS UP NICELY FOR STORAGE. THIS RACK DOESN'T LOCK, SO THAT'S A BUMMER, I WISH I WOULD'VE SAVED MY MONEY FOR A HIGHER QUALITY PRODUCT.
