As with any cover, make sure you have it on tight and tie up the loose straps. I bunched up the loose fabric at the back around a pedal and secured it with a small bungee. I found that by crossing the outer most top straps down to the upper most wheel straps in an X, it helped keep the clear sections up high and flat enough to see the taillights.
I would highly recommend this product to cover your bikes for travel. I was so happy to be able to ride without having to clean my bikes first.
Update: After over 5000 miles I can report that this cover holds up extremely well. There is only one spot where the black fabric has torn away from the clear panels and that is next to a strap that I pulled too tight. The vehicle taillights can be difficult to see through the plastic during the day so to solve that problem, I bought a cheap set of tow lights and attached them to my bike rack, they plugged right into my Jeep's wiring and light up the panes in the cover nicely. This week I bought a 1Up three position bike rack, it's wider than my old rack but the cover still fits nicely over the road, cross and 29" mountain bikes.
The part in the photos that is translucent is now clear, but there is a woven fabric mesh embedded in the clear material. (see photo) I'm sure our back-up lights will show through this section (see photo), and any issues of ripping or breaking plastic are prevented by the reinforcing mesh. (It's held up well. 9/3/15)
There are lots of straps, but instructions recommend additional bungies to reduce wind resistance.
Looks like Formosa has done a great job addressing issues from past reviews. Will post about performance after time on the road.
I was concerned about ordering directly from a seller v. Amazon. So far, Formosa has exceeded expectations on every point. Make sure you read past reviews on this dual bike cover sorted by MOST RECENT.
The Formosa cover has held up very well on long road trips and out in extreme weather since we bought it. No cracks, rips, or tears, even with continuous use. However, it is so solid we've had to repair the bike rack twice and now need to a third time due to the wind resistance.
1) During the first 10 miles of highway driving with the cover on at about 50 mph, I was following the rig and saw the bikes drop a 45 degree angle. After flipping the newly bent bar, my husband reinforced the hitch with a steel plate and stronger bolts. (See photo.) That carried everything fine with the cover on for trips from Dallas to KC to the TX/MX border (during May 2015 deluges) and back to Dallas.
2) After few hours heading east on hwy 40 a few days ago, we found the covered bikes leaning again - this time about 30 degrees above horizontal. The super-size bolts were bent this time. Thank goodness we discovered the problem before we lost the bikes and created a disaster on the highway. We had tools and extra bolts available for a short-term fix, otherwise we would have been in a bad jam at the highway rest stop with no way to carry 2 bikes. We took the bike cover off and continued on.
3) Now the hubs is looking to weld the hitch somehow.
We still think the cover has done an awesome job protecting the bikes, and it's held up well in extreme weather, but the wind resistance is too much for the hitch behind the fifth wheel. We are going to travel without the cover on the bikes, but use it to protect them when we're parked. In the meantime, I'll probably be searching for a different hitch, not a different cover. (We've had the hitch since '09 with no trouble until we added the cover.)
