        The Nashbar Bike Rack works great on my 2014 Subaru Outback to carry my Trek 2.1 to the Silver Comet Trail. I tried roof racks but they were more cumbersome and prone to accidents.

        Great Bike Rack, great Nashbar price, and fast shipping. Happy Biker.

                  This product accomodates two bikes as advertised. I use it for a long-wheel base recumbent. I am able to reverse the front wheel and it fits perfectly in the wheel dishes.

                              Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

                              We purchased this item to use on a motorhome. It can't be used for that because it doesn't come with a straight shank, only one that curves up... makes it way to high to use on an RV.

                              It is very lightly constructed, and uses an adapter to fit the 2" receiver, so you can't use a receiver hitch lock on it.

                              It will hold our two cruiser bikes, but because of the light construction, it bounces and rattles, and the carrier places the bikes so high, it's really not useable.
