About Allen Sports

Dick Allen (pictured left in 1972) started Allen Sports in his garage in 1967. Since its founding, the company has been committed to producing the highest-quality, easiest-to-use bike racks and bicycle related products on the market. Dick, a onetime aerospace engineer, opened Allen Sports after building a prototype bike carrier in his Lincoln, Massachusetts shop in his free time. The first ever trunk-mounted bicycle carrier--made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding)-- was thoroughly tested on weekend excursions to Cape Cod. Shortly afterward, Allen took his design to market, and by 1971 had established a national presence for his product.

Today, the family owned company owns more than three dozen patents, operates four warehouses nationally, six factories abroad, and sells products in countries around the world including USA, Mexico, Canada, and China.

Style Name: MT-2
I picked this up because it was cheap and it would work with my Subaru hatchback. It is lightweight, and it's very quick to put on and take off once you get the top straps adjusted. It's essentially everything I wanted in a bike rack, nothing more and nothing less. I am a pretty careful person so mine has lasted for almost two seasons with no problems to the rack and still going strong; I can't speak to durability if you beat the crap out of it.

The little buttons you push in to extend the rack for the second bike are hard to push in but still manageable (maybe some wd-40 would help).
My roommate's bike did not fit on this rack because it had lots of stuff going on in the triangle below the top tube (dual suspension, I think).

I'm *usually* a careful person, some things to note:
* do not use the rear wiper, I burned up the rear wiper motor which is a potentially expensive fix. Luckily boyfriend replaced the motor fairly easily and cheaply (I can provide the details if you're in a similar bind). Now I have painter's tape in my console and tape off the rear wiper switch when the bike rack is on the car (boyfriend was not excited to replace the motor every season).
* make sure the car and bottom rubber foot are clean, clean, clean (just like the directions tell you to). I have paint scratches where that foot rests. I now have electrical tape over the general area where that foot will normally sit because I don't care too much what my car looks like but don't want any more scratches. I don't know if it'll work. Fingers crossed.
* don't position the carrier too high. I had two bikes and the carrier situated a little too high and I was getting lift on the bikes at 70mph. The bikes were fine; it just made me (and probably anyone driving behind me) very uneasy.

Overall, awesome rack, I've gotten my money's worth and then some.

Originally bought this to use on a Mini Cooper now using it with on mazda cx-5 (compact SUV) primarily with a 29er

The rack:
I use the rack to transport a 29er mountain bike which is a little awkward to use due to the frame design of the bike. I can't get the top bar of the frame to sit flush on the padded legs but regardless, I'm still able to securely strap it in.
The set up is pretty straight forward: open all the arms and legs until the click into place. Hook the top hooks to the top of the trunk frame & tighten, hook the bottom hook to the bottom of the truck and pull each tie down till tight.

The instructions say not to put all 3 points of contact on the window as it may break the window. I'm weary of putting the rubber pads on the actual car frame in fear that it would damage the paints so I position the top pads toward the window of the window and the bottom pad on the license plate.

The frame hooks are metal so in fear that it may damage the paint, I put some electrical tape inside the hooks for added protection.

I use bungy cords to secure the tires, handle bars, and pedals from moving and it also provides added security for the bike from shifting on the rack.

So far so good. I haven't experienced any real issues transporting bikes with this rack. I've transported 2 bikes on several occasions without any problems. I did notice wobbling on occasion when turning. Not sure if it was my setup or improperly secured the tie-downs.

On Mini Cooper::
It worked well on the mini even with 2 bikes although I never used it for long distances or on freeway.

The bike rack works well. I used to to transport my bike from home to my school, which is a 550 mile drive at 60-75 mph the whole way and it held up perfectly. However, some things are worth noting.

The bike rack doesn't hold all parts of the bike sturdy. For example, the wheel on the bike is still pretty easy to turn even when tied down like the directions say to. In addition, the pedals are still free to rotate and could hit your car. Also, the hooks that hook into the top of your trunk don't have any sort of protective coating so they may scratch your car a little bit.

These flaws are easily remedied by purchasing a few bungee cords and tying your bike securely. You may also want a few rags to tuck under the hooks that hold the rack to the car (very thin rags or pads of some sort). Also, it would be wise to put an old sock or another rag around the pedal closest to the car just in case, with the addition of the bungee cord to keep the pedals from rotating.

Also, keep in mind that the pins that you push in order to fold and unfold the rack can be a bit frustrating, and difficult to work with. However, I would like to emphasize, do not use any sort of tool or stick to push in the pins if they show some sort of resistance. I did this, and one of the pins ended up contracting too much to the point of getting stuck inside one of the metal shafts and there was no way of getting it out. I ended up replacing this pin with a nut and bolt, and although this worked and held up perfectly fine throughout my 550 mile drive with no problems, I had to unscrew the nut and bolt in order to fold and unfold the rack which makes it take longer to set up and will require tools.
