    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    Nice budget rack for those of us with large families without large cars. We have 29ers and are able to get them all loaded up without too many issues. As a matter of fact, we went for a ride this weekend. From attaching to the truck to loading the bikes, it only took about 5 minutes.

    I recommend setting the wheel trays once and then loading the same bikes into their designated positions in the future. Saves work when loading and securing the bikes.

    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    Others have said it is heavy. I think it is about right considering you are going to hang about 160 pounds 3 feet off your bumper. Now if you want exotic metals it could be lighter but you would pay more! I do not like the plastic device they use for holding the nuts on assembly. If it was not for the plastic nut holders I would give it a 5 star.

    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    I bought this rack to be able to carry our four bikes and didn't want to buy the hanging style rack. The rack came in two days. Quality is very good and solid. The rack is heavy once built but I guess that's a good indicator of the quality of it. All pieces came in and was easy to assemble. I like ho the legs fold and the top tube brackets fold so you can access your trunk/hatch. I only have two complaints about this rack: 1)Wish the rack would fold upwards when not in use 2)wish the top tube brackets would lock. Great price for a four bike carrier style rack. Overall very happy and impressed with it.

    Poor Quality Control

    By Mark S.

    from Palmyra, PA

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    The unit was packed well and came with good installation instructions however, there were several parts missing and poorly constructed. For example, I had four flat washers instead of the lock washers I was supposed to have. Also, one of the plastic hand-tighten knobs was drilled and threaded the wrong size for the bolt. The unit itself does not fold up when not in use on your vehicle nor does it fold down with bikes on it to allow access to the rear hatch. My advice, spend the extra money to avoid these annoying issues.

    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    Overall a good design. Mine shipped with several missing pieces that Nashbar quickly sent replacements for. Aside from some missing pieces there are also some misaligned holes in the rack. The basic design is good, but it needs better quality control. It is very sturdy, but also heavy. All in all a good rack for the price.

    Incredibly heavy

    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    I read the reviews about this rack and they said it was heavy, but otherwise a great rack. When it arrived it was so heavy the box it came in was a mess, just because it was so difficult for the shipping people to handle.
    I can't imagine how heavy this would be with four bikes on it and my Honda crv dragging its tail pipe! Just couldn't, imagine horse inn this rack around, so Inreturned it. Nashbar return system is awesome by the way.

    Gets the job done - somewhat fat bike friendly

    By Jim

    from Wisconee

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Solid
    • Works

    Cons

    • Heavy

    Best Uses

    • Mountain Biking

    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    Works well! Instead of the ratcheting controls to fasten the bikes down, everything is held in place by nut/bolt connections- easy enough with the plastic grips, you just need to make sure they are tight before you drive so you don't loose any hardware. The fat bikes actually fit well on this unit when you flip the wheel trays upside down and bungee the wheels to the trays...very solid.

    This unit does not fold up, so it does take up some space behind the vehicle. The hitch pin is a screw on typ with a welded nut in the 2" tupe, so you have to use that instead of a standard pin.

    All in all works great! Happy with the purchase.

    Shadow 4 place Bike Hitch Rack

    • Very adjustable

    Cons

    • Heavy

    Best Uses

    Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

    This is a great hitch rack for the price. Shipping was quick, instructions were clear and assembly was easy using common hand tools (wrenches). The quality of the materials that are used in this rack are good.

    This rack is heavy and for some users it will require an extra set of hands for mounting.

    I have used this rack for two across state trips without any related issues. All bikes stayed securely on the rack without any damage caused by the rack.

    Note: This rack will not work with a "fat" bike.
