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.

This version has pins that you have to set after unfolding it. The Premier model, however, does not. It simply unfolds and locks into place. This version also has nylon straps to secure each bike. You must thread the strap and tighten. Whereas the Premier model has rubber straps that are very simple to secure.
This isn't a simple process. I am glad that I found a rack that is simple to use so as not to add to the complication. Go for the Premier model.
Note, the hooks on the straps to connect to the car are unprotected metal (on both models). I was afraid this would scratch my paint so I simply covered them with black duct tape. It is thin enough to still allow the hooks to slip in the crack around the trunk but soft and strong enough to not scrape metal-on-metal.
The setup was very straightforward. Just unfolded the unit out of the box, and attached it to the rear of the car with the two top straps. Then adjusted to the correct height, and attached and adjusted the other straps. The unit is heavy, a good thing as it is also very strong and seems to easily deal with the weight of 4 bikes. We fit the 4 bikes with no issues, and used it to go camping a couple weeks ago. We went over 200 miles, sometimes over rough terrain and bumps, and the rack performed fine throughout.
Any bike will fit on the rack. You just need to try it. It'll work.
I have used this rack on two 100 mile trips with no issues. The bikes were stable, and did not shift during transit. I did use additional ties to secure the wheels. I would highly recommend this rack.
Amazon has the best price on this rack. Consider purchasing the tension bar and some extra straps.
My family and I Traveled over 1200 miles from Michigan to Tennessee with my mountain bike along with two kids bikes. The rack worked great with very little movement from the bikes and no scratches to the bikes or my vehicle (Dodge Grand Caravan). The kids bikes(one 16" girls and one 20" boys) did not fit the traditional way as mine fit, but I was able to mount them securly without any extra straps or adjustments. We only traveled with three bike, but a fourth bike would have fit perfectly. It took about 20 minutes to attach the mount and mount the bikes the first time, but I was able to do it all in five or ten minutes for the trip home. I would recommend the tension bar adaptor for a women's bike. Although we did not take my wife's bike on the trip, the tension bar will be necessary for our next trip when we take all four bikes. If there is a fault, I would say that the bracket(hook) that attaches the rack to the vehicle should have some kind of pad to prevent scratching the vehicle. I don't know that it would have scratched the door, but I took a preventive measure by cutting pieces of cloth to place between the door and the brackets. The cost of the rack and tension bar was far less than if I would have purchased it through the local bike shop. I am very happy with my purchase.
I bought this through the Amazon Warehouse to save money and I'm glad I did. The bike mount for my Sonata works well for the three bikes I needed to haul for a ride a few weekends ago and you won't go wrong. Regular bikes may work better but you may want to find this in a local store so you can size appropriately.
