Rated 4 out of 5 by Nancy60440 Can be a bit tricky to install
The instructions were not especially clear so I was glad my husband's back rack got installed at the store in Downers Grove, IL, so I could use it for reference.
But it's different to put on a woman's bike than a man's bike because of how the various bars are aligned. So it was a little tricky to be sure not to interfere with the rear wheel brake apparatus.
Have not carried a load on it yet, so cannot comment on that aspect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EJ Decent affordable rear bike rack.
Fit perfectly on my Trek. Bike had all the mount points needed to accommodate the rack. Once the rack was centered, leveled and tightened down, it looked OEM.
No problems with the rack so far. Solid product. Happy with fit and finish.
You have to know what you are doing when mounting a rack. Tho I read a lot of people who have had problems, mine has been solid and has taken everything I have thrown at it. From rough urban roads, to off-road trails, to strapping groceries, backpacks and a small toolbox to it, no rattles noticed and the rack stays true and solid.
All hardware was there and complete, nothing missing in the package.
The only problem now is to find a decent pannier set to fit with this rack configuration and it will be a marriage made in bike heaven.

Good quality, fair price. Installation instructions are very poor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RaceReady Sturdy but be inventive
This is a well made product and in the end, I think it's going to be just fine, but not all bikes are made the same way with the same attachment points, etc.
I was looking to put this on my daughter's mountain bike and will have to figure out some way to mount it under the seat post as it doesn't seem to be a direct fit.
If it works for your bike, I would recommend it, but be aware that it might not or you might (like me) have to do some jury rigging to make it work.

I am getting ready to be a full time bicyclist and I purchased this item to assist in my commute. The install was easy and it seems to suit my purpose so far.

Love this little rack. Feels nice and sturdy on the bike. Just a basic rack but lives up to that. Didn't want one with a lot of gimicky bells and whistles

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbara E. Nice Rack!!!
I use this product to attach anything to it using bungee cords or an elastic net thing. I can also attach my panniers to it. The rack was easy to install on the bike. I needed something to bridge between the metal straps and the knockouts, so I straightened out the d-clamps and they were perfect, allowing the rack to sit level. I made the junctions very tight, but realize the weight load should be no more than 10 lbs, I suppose. I think the metal straps should be longer so improvisation would not be required.

The rack was easy to install and feels sturdy. I wish the rack came with lock washers instead of lock bolts.
