Great product

Posted23 April 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, easy to fit, sturdy
Cons: Expensive
I own a hatchback car with a plastic spoiler on the rear which made most other rack options not an option. With this I was faced with getting a roof rack which I wasn't massively keen on.
I found that this rack was compatible with my car when used with the additional hatch hugger option. Despite the price seeming high to me at first I decided to try it so as to avoid the roof rack.
Very glad I got it now. The rack is extreamly solid on the car with practically no movement once attached. Very easy to fit and adjust. The option to switch between standard and 29er positions is great but can be a bit tricky if you have a 27.5. This size doesn't seem to fit perfectly in either position but is still held solidly.

This product fits quickly and easily

Posted30 July 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: security
A great bike rack that is quick and easy to fit.
However only suitable for journeys from A - B as it isn't possible to lock either the rack or bikes to the car.
Convenient to use especially as it's design doesn't require a lighting board.
Great value for money.
I have been approached in a car park since its purchase asking me where I got it from, of course I told them Evans Cycles.

saris say fit vauxhall insignia hatchback doesn't

Posted28 June 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
purchased, assembled, tried fit - in high position top part of wheel rest sits on glass before feet do, in low position the bars that join front and rear wheel rests impact on hatch edge
despite saris site saying compatible with 2009 vauxhall insignia hatchback

Very professional way to carry your bikes!

Posted03 May 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Easy to install and a good solution to carry your bikes without hidden your plate number and lights. But like all racks of this kind moves a litlle bit on sharp turns and speed bumpers.
