      I purchased this bike rack a couple of months back just after I bought a new road bike and I just noticed that this bike rack is ruining the paint job just under the seat I contacted customer service and still have received a response back yet to resolve this matter. Do not buy this bike rack

          Only gave 4 stars because while the Axis 4 is a very sturdy and easy to use rack with the wide arms it can be like a jig saw puzzle to get bikes to fit on properly. This is especially true for bikes needing a bike bar, step through type bikes in paticular. Another problem when utilizing a bike bar is that the cross bar strap lines up where bike bar meets seat making it somewhat difficult to strap down. Once bikes are on the rack they hold really well, did notice some sway especially when going over bumps. Just to play it safe when loaded with 4 bikes since only have 1 1/4 receiver I added extra straps to assist in holding up weight as notice about a 1 inch extra distance between hitch and back of car, extra strapping definitely helps lessen sway/movement. Rack is extremely light and easy to get on and off hitch. Support is definitely a plus as when received hitch one arm wasn't holding tight which was due to one thumb screw was 1/16 of inch shorter, contacted company and was immediately sent out 2 new thumb screws. All in all I am quite happy with the Axis 4 and would recommend it.

          With a growing family I needed the ability to cart around 4 bikes and this bike rack does exactly that. It's light-weight, appearance looks great, and works just like it is intended too. I have used it will all 4 bikes on it and never felt as if I needed to check it. The tilt feature works great to still be able to get items or the dog in/out of the vehicle while leaving the rack on the vehicle. Being able to buy a quality product like this one from Saris, I know I won't have the need for another one in the future as this one will keep doing its job.

          I bought this rack about a month ago and it has been a great value! It came assembled and easy to install and is built quite well considering the price. The only thing I wish it came with is straps for the front wheel to keep it in place.

          I bought this because I have been a fan of Saris since I learned about mounts. My only complaint is that they sell a security bolt, but looking at the instructions, there is a simple to circumvent that security measure. I also hope there was a way to remove the straps to put bikes that are unique.

          Affordable and stoked it is made in USA, but hard to fit any smaller frames on towards the inside of the rack.
