Comments about Sportrack International SportRack Universal Upright Roof Bike Carrier:

Not only would I not recommend to a friend, I wouldn't recommend to an enemy!

I bought this because my old arm clamp style rack by the Sports Rack had finally kicked the bucket and I had to transport my road bike to a race last weekend. I wanted to get a different style but I was short on cash and this looked similar to what I had used in the past. Don't be fooled Sports Rack designed this assuming you don't give a flip about your bike.

I will be returning this thing as soon as I can get it off my car and back in the box.

The rack is not long enough to accommodate a regular (51cm) road bike and still have the tire cup in the front. This is annoying and left me having to strap my front wheel in place with foam so it wouldn't jiggle

The arm clamp was terrifying. Basically the arm has two pieces of plastic that are supposed to wrap around the down tube. In order to install your bike to this thing, you have to turn a knob till it tightens around the tube.
1. There is ZERO padding. So to protect my bike I had to use fabric to around the down tube.
2. In order to fit around the down tube I had to undo the knob from the mechanism, making the whole thing awkward to install.
3. Once in place, The clamp never got 'tight'. It just got to a point where the knob continued to spin. Had I not used fabric to pad the down tube it would have flopped all over the place. My bike would have never made the three hour drive.
Don't buy this cheap piece of garbage. I'll be spending the money to get a decent bike carrier next round.

Comments about Sportrack International SportRack Universal Upright Roof Bike Carrier:

First, let me compliment Nashbar product support: the rack arrived minus any of the hardware required to attach it to the vehicle. One call to Nashbar product support and it was on the way and arrived in a couple of days, so I was able to use the rack when needed.

The rack itself was easy to assemble and seems to be well designed, but the included hardware is questionable. The spring between the bike support arms broke when I installed it; no biggie, they had better ones at the local hardware store. The straps that are supposed to hold the bike wheels to the tray looked cheap and weak, so I used a couple of old toe straps that worked fine. Time will tell if the bolts and nuts that hold the rack together are rust-prone; they have stainless ones at the hardware store too.

The rack seems easy to use; the bike is easy to mount and seems to be held securely; I've driven several hundred miles with a couple of different bikes and have had no problems. I have the round Yakima crossbars on my Prius and the whole rack was easy to mount on those.

I would definitely buy this rack again. For the money, especially with a discount, it seems to be good. Don't know if it is sturdy enough to take a bike off-roading on a Jeep, but for transporting bikes on normal roads, it works fine.

Comments about Sportrack International SportRack Universal Upright Roof Bike Carrier:

The product came in a box that was very damaged and no instructions. I had to search on line to find them and they were not very helpful.
The rack is hard to use and takes too much time to load and unload a bike.
