About Allen Bike Racks
In 1967, after a few years of working on the aerospace technology for the Apollo missions, Dick Allen was out of a job. Government cutbacks led Allen, a Harvard-trained physicist, to transform his garage hobby into a new industry. A cycling enthusiast, inventor, and family man, Allen had a personal need for a bike-carrying device. On weekends, he would take his sons and wife to Cape Cod or the White Mountains of New Hampshire. What proved difficult time and again was the transport of his family’s bicycles. Rather than fight through inconvenience with twine and a dinged car, Allen sought an answer for himself as well as a market in which he foresaw major growth possibilities.

Always a pathfinder, Allen took to work in his Lincoln, Massachusetts garage in search of a more efficient way to transport bikes. Drafting designs during the day and constructing them throughout the night, he put together a model made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding). At first, the Allens tested the prototype on weekend excursions. Finding the first trunk-mounted rack to be a success, Dick started Allen Bike Racks. Dealer acceptance came quickly, and by 1971 Allen Bike Racks were sold nationally through a number of major bicycle distributors. Today, the company owns over three dozen patents and offers a versatile product line of bike racks while Dick’s son Alex now owns and operates the business. What started out as a small garage run operation now operates three warehouses nationally, two factories abroad, and has products sold in more than a dozen countries around the world.

This rack is very sturdy and easy to set up.
Daniel H.
I admit I was a little nervous when I first purchased the bike rack, as it seemed very few people mentioned using the rack for highway speeds on long travels.
College Triathlon Enthusiast
It has foam and rubber coatings in the right places to prevent the rack from scratching the paint.

After doing extensive price comparison and research, my husband and I settled on this rack for towing around our two mountain bikes. I tore open the box and within minutes before even reading instructions I was twisting and turning and figuring it out - if you take a long hard look at it, I think it's quite intuitive. With a quick look at the instructions to make sure I wasn't going to break it, I was ready to go try it out on my car - 2005 Ford Escape and my husband's car - 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 with a factory installed spoiler. I read on another website that this bike rack was compatable with cars with spoilers (stated: compatable with most factory installed spoilers). From tearing open the box to getting it set on a car took me less than ten minutes. No lie! The padding on this is nice where it contacts the car, the craddles for the bikes are nice and grippy and sturdy, the fold-flat design is wonderful and very easy to use, the set up is a breeze for one person and take-down is just as easy, loading the bikes was easy, too. It looks really nice, both bikes made it in and out of the rack after a short car ride with no damage, bumps, bruises, loss, etc.

**Oh, P.S. if you are reading this and have a ladies or bent-frame bike make sure you pick up or have an adapter bar (Allen also makes one of these which I also got and am very pleased with as it's easy to use and gentle on my bike) so that your bike will be able to be safely mounted on the rack correctly.

Great so far, I have had it for a few months and use it at least once a week. But I have only taken short trips, nothing over 30 miles or an hour drive time.

Plus:

No assembly required.

Easy to set up. After the initial setup and finding the optimal position for the bikes it now only takes me about 5 minutes to put the rack on the trunk and place the bikes on the rack. Takes even less time to take off rack and folds flat so can be stored in trunk, while not in use.

Compact but very sturdy, and good foam padding protects trunks well enough. No damage so far.

The straps that hold the bikes in place can be rotated to accommodate different bikes. Very versatile. The rack has held 2 medium sized full suspension bikes with no problems at all.

Best price I could find for a new 2-bike trunk rack that has individual straps for bikes.

Minus:

Only has four straps that attaches to trunks vs other racks that have six straps. (But it seems that the four straps work well enough. I am assuming that more straps would make it more sturdy and stable)

Overall:

Great product for a great price, it does what it is meant to do, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Tips:

Before putting the rack on your trunk, make sure the area on the trunk that the rack will be resting on is clean of dirt and other particles to prevent scratches due to friction.

After setting up the rack on your trunk rubberband the excess strap. This will keep it from flying around and will make it easier to setup and take off the rack.

Put a couple of old socks over the pedal of the first bike to keep the pedal from scratching your car's finish.

It's a decent little bike rack for the price. However, I found it extremely difficult to fit 2 small, women's mountain bikes on the rack together. One of the pedals pushes up against the trunk of my Jetta, so I have to wrap a towel around the pedal to prevent scratching. And on the one bike, the strap that wraps around the bar of the bike barely fits because of the thickness of the bar. So I added a few bungee cords just in case. My first 20 minute drive to the beach had me a wee bit nervous that something was going to fly off, but I guess that's normal for first time users. The ride home was smooth and I didn't worry about the bikes once. So overall, (sorry I ramble a lot), it is a pretty secure rack, just kinda small. I wouldn't try to put men's bikes on there. And I definitely would not travel long distances with it. But it is perfect for local biking...and maybe for carrying only one bike.

UPDATE 08/01/09
Studpid me! I really LOVE this bike rack. After a couple uses, I figured out that if I put the pedal on my bike a certain way, it does not touch my trunk at all. AND, I can easily fit my bike and a men's bike on it no problem. At first, I always took my rack off when I was done to try to maintain the quality of it. But my laziness always gets the best of me. I've left it on for long periods at a time. Even in the rain. I drive long distances with two bikes on it and I'm never nervous about straps coming undone or bikes flying off! LOL. It has held up well and I've had it for a year and a half. No complaints here! Sorry for the long review.

Ordered the rack, got it, sturdy, took less than 10 minutes to install.
However, the width of the bars is not adjustable, so the rack is only good for larger bikes (above 17.5 inch). I have a Trek 7.3FX bike which fits on the rack, but my wife has a Trek 7100 which would not fit, no matter what. Also, the website doesn't mention the cars it will or will not fit, this information is available once you get the rack. There is a fit guide on the back of the box. So it fit my wife's Camry, but wouldn't fit my Celica. Would be nice to have this information BEFORE one orders. Had to return mine. 5 stars for Amazon though, they gave me a full refund.
