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

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

About Me Casual/ Recreational

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

Pros

  • Durable
  • Easy to assemble
  • Good quality
  • Versatile
  • Very adjustable

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Bikes Of All Sizes
  • Mountain Biking
  • Road Biking

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.

      Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

      One of the only racks ive seen that fits 4 bikes. It needs some finessing to get together. I had to enlarge one of the holes to seat the largest bolts. it won't slide on my class 3 trailer hitch without sanding the paint down. good value bike rack if you can live with how heavy it is and a little tinckering.

      Our family just started cycling and this rack suits us perfectly! It's sturdy and holds four bikes easily. It's a bit heavy, my husband or son have to attach the rack to the hitch. Overall, we've been very pleased and I would recommend.

        Comments about Nashbar Shadow 4-Bike Hitch Rack:

        The rack is nice, but like other reviewers stated, it is very heavy. Super versatile and can be adjusted to fit many bikes. The only drawback is that it doesn't fold upward length-wise, so if you have a long SUV, good luck finding a parking spot.

        Overall, a great rack for the price!
