4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 5-bike carrier, June 26, 2007
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I needed a bike rack for all of the family bikes, and this one fits the bill nicely. Very easy to assemble, and although a bit heavy to lift, easily slides onto the 2 inch receiver hitch and quickly bolted into place. For bikes that have a high crossbar (ie. men's bike), the bike is easily placed into the cradles and strapped into place. For bikes without the cross bar (ie. kid's bikes and women's bike), I recommend purchasing the removable crossbars (available at my local bike shop for $35, but likely cheaper on-line). Finagling all five bikes onto the rack isn't so easy, but it will work. The features of the rack are very nice: bars drop-down when not needed and the whole rack drops away from the vehicle for easy access to the rear door of the minivan. For the money, a great buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Serves its purpose, November 16, 2008
This review is from: Yakima KingPin 5-Bike Hitch Mount Rack (2-Inch Receiver) (Sports)
This is a seriously beefy rack! It will stand up to the 5 heaviest bikes you can load, no problem. As a result, IT IS HEAVY and the shape and distribution of the weight make it a bit ungainly to handle. Once mounted on the vehicle, it's fine except for a some wobble in the hitch receiver fit. This may be a matter of my hitch receiver being worn and allowing more play in the fit but...? Bikes with standard frame configurations fit easily but you must have frame hangers for any bike with an angled top-tube (extra $$). Overall, I would reco this rack if you have to have a 5-bike rack but this unit works better with only 4 bikes.
