Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

No frills, easy to use, sturdy construction and works good for a fraction of the price of leading brand names. No locks, but a cable lock is easy enough to deter theft.

      Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

      I have other racks for both hitch mount and trunk mount, but none are as easy to use as this one. I bought a wrench to keep with the rack so I can put it on and load the bikes in just a few minutes. It adjusts easily for different sized bikes. It doesn't have fancy quick release adjusters, only knobs, but it doesn't cost hundreds of dollars either. I also like that I can open my truck's tailgate when there isn't a bike on the inside position.

          This rack mounts easily and securely. I was transporting on the roof but my wife is only five feet tall and couldn't get the bikes up that high. This rack is perfect.

                Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

                I need to carry two ebikes and their total weight is almost 100 pounds and this rack does fine for both. Low loading height makes is easier to get the bikes onto the rack. The rack was very easy to assemble. I love hte 3/4 inch head bolt to mount the rack to my 1.25 inch hitch. Only person that will be able to steal this will need to have a 3/4 inch wrench handy.

                  Comments about Nashbar Shadow 2-Bike Hitch Rack:

                  I think all the negative reviews of this product were from people who didnt read the description very well. I bought this rack with regular and fat tire holders for less that $200. A steal! Yeah it might be a little clunky to adjust but so what. It works, and it works with EVERYTHING I have thrown at it. (Note- I have no "female" framed bikes.) I was careless and forgot to clamp the top tube once. Bike tipped over with minimal damage and the velcro held on well. You do need to think about which bike to put in which position so both bar clamps can go down far enough to hold the top tube. Bikes stay attached well on our pothole strewn oHIo roads.

                      Easy to assemble. Had a Saris 3 bike hitch carrier that required lifting the bike up on it. Short arms made is a pain. Also, it scratched the frame every time I used it. Lastly, it blocked my rear view camera. My friends have the Thule original. I am very pleased with the Nashbar "knockoff".
