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.

I had minimal issues on the highway, since I was at a constant speed, but any bump or change in momentum causes the bike and the rack to drastically sway. This probably looks worrisome to drivers behind me. I doubt I would feel comfortable using this for any extended period of time, as I don't know what would happen to the welding. I will take the filler plate apart and see if I can make that area more snug to minimize movement...
Update: I bought their version that carries 4 bikes. The only differences (MOST important one), is that the hitch is fitted for ONLY a 2 inch receiver. There are no filler plates, so I was able to get a more secure connection, with no wobble. If you have a 2 inch receiver I suggest picking up the Allen 4-bike hitch for secure attachment and peace of mind. The other major difference, is that there are no weld points, because the hitch attachment is a single piece.
When I hooked this up for the first time, I noticed how bouncy it was with three bikes on. I took them off to verify I wasn't exceeding the weight limit, and I wasn't. It flexes a lot at the bend near the hitch (where the bar is welded at a 45 degree angle). But I've been using it for several weeks now and I haven't had an issue.
The cons are very simple to fix, the manufacturer should really look into this: it needs a security hole, so that you can secure it to the hitch and secure the bikes to it. I wrapped a security cable around the hitch, snaked it around this rack, and looped through my bike with locks. It works, but it's a little clunky. In the end, it would be impossible to steal the bike, but the rack isn't 100% secure. Oh well, it would take someone a lot of work to get it out.
The other con is the straps that hold the bike. My old rack had velcro hoop look straps and they worked great. These are ANNOYING. I even tried to buy my own velcro straps but the ones on this rack just aren't going anywhere unless I cut them off.
It's hard to complain about a $90 bike rack, but if they reinforced the first bend better, fixed the straps, and gave this thing a security hole, it would be AWESOME.
EDIT - 8/3/15 - I added a picture to show how I use the security cable. Again, the cable connects the bike to the hitch. The rack isn't 100% secure, but that's the least expensive part anyway. At least the bikes are secure.
1. The bikes do not sway or move at all.
2. Three bikes clearly fit on it. I did have to positione the pedals so they weren't hitting the other tires, but it was easy.
3. The pin coomes out and the rack can move at an angle so i can open the trunk of the expedition no problem.
4. The hitch adapter that others said was loose in their hitch is also loose in mine, but once I put the no rattle bolt and screw, it does not move at all.
All in all, it was better than I expected given some of the reviews, and completely exceeded my expectations.
