Super spare tire bike rack at half the cost of some other spare tire racks, and you don't have to take off the spare to install it ! It's lightweight and easily adjusts to different-sized tires (lift off the tire for easiest adjustment), and a big nylon strap secures it. A little nylon strap also comes with it, and we tie the pedal of the first bike to the bottom of the rack to prevent swinging. This could be important, because swinging bikes might put a pedal in your bumper's paint, but tying the closest pedal to the bottom of the rack is the easy solution.

RAV4 owners: this rack worked well on our 08 RAV4 Sport. It's initially tricky to thread the strap through behind the spare tire's mounting plate, but after the first time, it only takes seconds. On our car, the rod initially touched the body, but it didn't cause any damage. Once you run the strap through, it creates a space. We decided to leave the shipping plastic on anyway, (could have used a cloth to guard the paint) and had no damage. It's very sturdy, mounts up nice and tight, and we took it down the interstate for hours. It was even really windy part of the way, and we had with no troubles.

Customer service with Saris/Graber is responsive ! I contacted them via the Internet (there's a phone # too at the bottom of the page with the Internet form) and asked for some more cap plugs (for unused holes in the rack frame) and got a quick response.

The price is good (around $80.00 retail) and it folds up nice and flat for good compact storage. It's even got a hinge with holes for a padlock so you can lock your bikes.

As with most racks, it helps to have some ties and maybe some protection to keep your bikes and your car free from scratches. Saris/Graber sells some protective padding separately, but we used bungy cords with care and got a great result.

Nice build/construction but watch your tires. If they are anywhere near the exhaust stream you will be buying a new tube and tire when you reach your destination. I used it on a Honda CRV ('04) and the tire was just above the tailpipe. After about 20 miles or so we heard a pop and low-and-behold, the tire had been burned by the exhaust. I emailed them to tell them and all i got was a: "Gee that's too bad...." Hence the 2 stars. (e.g. poor customer service)

I did not have the problems that Lady Trek had with the bars moving and scraping the paint on my bikes. The carry bars lock into position when in the carry position. They do not lock into the folded position though so they can stick out a bit - annoying perhaps but not crtitcal.

I was able to position the rack very securly on my CRV tire. You do need a wrench to tighten the bar that clamps down on the tire in order to properly secure the rack. I also realized that I had to be sure to keep the wrench in the car in case I ever needed to use the spare tire. You can't get the rack off the tire without loosening the tire clamp bar. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER!!

I also like that you can position the rack so that it is centered on the car even though the spare tire is offset to one side.

I DO NOT like the fact that my bike (adult size men's mountain bike)is carried so low. Try as I might, I couldn't get the tires more than 6 or 7 inches above the ground when the bike is on the rack - but I'm a big guy and I have a big bike. My wife's smaller bike fit better but it was still lower than I would like (say 10" above the ground). I might be able to reposition the rack a bit to help to alleviate this problem.

A thought about security - the rack does not lock to the car, but as I said, it can't be removed without the proper wrench if you've tightened up the tire clamp bar real good, so that's not too much of a worry unless you leave you bikes on the rack for extended unattended periods. There is a nifty clamp thingy that goes over the top tube of your bike in the outer position only to which you can affix a lock, thereby locking the bike(s) to the rack.

Anyway - it's realtively cheap, does the job adequately and easy to deal with.

Imo, this is the best carrier at any price (at least for my suv). It fits perfectly on my spare, and can be installed/removed in seconds. It also features a latch on the bike holder that can be padlocked shut, and a long cable lock can secure the whole thing to the spare. Not 100% theft proof, but it should at least deter thieves during rest stops.

Not a bad rack for the price. Fits over the spare nicely. I didnt care for the strap that it came with to secure it to the spare. It seems flimsy. Instead I used two racheting straps secured to the corners of the back bar and the corners of the bottom bar. That REALLY snugs it down good. Its also easily removed this way. Just release the rachets and slip it off. I saw several post about bikes being scratched. Use some bungee cord to secure the bike and you will not have this issue. So far I am happy. However, we will see how it wears over time. Ride on!

I got this rack about a month ago - it fits right over my spare - and the great thing is it can be adjusted if you have an off center spare (mine's a CRV). Very easy assembly. It can also be swicthed from car to car easily. The only drawback here is that it is not actually locked onto the car - so it could be stolen right off the tire when it isn't in use ( and the bike with it). What I did was to buy a small chain and lock - and I just locked the rack to the car (The bike locks to the rack) to insure security when I'm in places I don't know well. Overall a good rack for the price (The other off center spare rack is the Thule - a minimum of 160.00, even from EBay - and the assembly is harder)
