Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

So I researched a lot, and possibly too much. Have had a use out of this rack and it is awesome. It handles your bikes super great. Holds them in rock solid, and is easy to use. You do need to think about how you put bikes in biggest with the top bar holder on top. But other than that it is super simple.

Here is the bottom line, if you are loaded and love to throw your cash around then there are plenty of more expensive racks that are less versatile. But me being a poor dad of 2 boys and wife who rides just needed lots of space cheap so I could buy more bikes!!! And I am glad I got this rack.

Just remember it is as solid as a rock, so heavy, but it means everything is well held into place!!!

      Very nice rack. Well built and sturdy. The moveable arms are all secured with a keyed pin. Lots of adjustability. Some sliding parts just need a little silicon spray. I transported 4 bikes very securely with no scratches. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

      It was easy to assemble and install on vehicle. It is heavy duty and will likely last a long time. It's easy to use. Unfortunately, it isn't easy to gain access to the trunk of my van while it's in the hitch. Also the hitch pin doesn't allow for a locking pin. But for the price, it's a great buy.

      Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

      This is real heavy and bulky, but take it for what is worth. I haul four bikes all the time whether they are MTB or Road and there is no better way to travel. No hassle. After a long ride, quickly put the bikes on and get on your way. The price will not be beat. The only thing i added to the rack was reflective tape to make sure it is seen at night since it is huge when installed on your vehicle.

      Had a hard time sliding the wheel hoops and the top hooks on the rails. I had to take them apart and spread the metal apart to give more clearance to allow the parts to slide. Before I did this, it took a hammer to move them They work OK now.

        Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

        If there was a way to fold it up toward the back of your car, this would be perfect. With bikes on, its no big deal...but when you aren't using, its a huge contraption on the back of your car.

        Its to big and heavy to want to put it on and off throughout the week.

            Best Uses

            • Almost Any Bikes

            Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

            This took an hour or two to assemble and it is heavy (but, of course, it needs to be.) One of my best purchases ever. I needed an adapter for my car's hitch (1.25"->2") but then I was good to go. We have 4 large bikes and I had little trouble getting them all on once I adjusted the wheel holds. The way the bikes are held in place eliminates the problem of clamping to bars with exposed cabling.
