Delta Pablo Folding 2 Bike Rack
80 lbs (35kg)
Holds two bikes, mounting hardware and instructions included
I bought two of these because they were reasonably priced and I needed a way to keep my bikes and my daughter's trailer easy to access but minimally intrusive on our small porch. (My wife is a determined non-rider) I had a few goals, and it met all of them.
First, I wanted to get two road bikes and a WeeHoo pedal trailer into the same floor space previously occupied by a single road bike.
Second, I wanted to retain the ability to easily grab a bike as I head out the door. Only the front bike on each rack is really an easy grab-and-go, but I only have two bikes. The trailer is always going to be a slightly bigger production anyway, since it and the kid have to be attached.
Third and least important, I wanted to be able to lock to the rack for a little extra deterrence. Don't take this to mean that the racks will stop a determined thief. I'm sure bolt cutters would make short work of them. But I can easily loop my u-lock around the top tubes of two bikes and the shelf. That should at least make it less likely that someone decides to pick up a nice unsecured bike off my porch, since they'd have to obviously break the rack in full view of my neighbors.
These racks meet all those needs. They were also easy to mount. In fact, they were so straightforward that they could have left out the instructions and I wouldn't have minded. Three screws (included) through the mounting plate and into a stud and you're ready to go.
Build quality on my two is good. I have no doubt that they'll hold my bikes just fine unless I missed the stud with the screws. The padding on the arms where your top tube goes is soft enough not to worry about scratches and hard enough not to worry about wearing it away in short order. The shelf and hooks for miscellaneous cycling accessories are a nice bonus.
