    The rack is amazing. It fits over the spare tire and is all but invisible to the driver. It holds the bicycles up high and dry and it is like they are not even there. It is a perfect rack! It has two downsides to it. First, I have had the right arm and lock knob fall off twice and Yakima does not offer the right arm as a replacement part. So, I had to buy a new rack. This has happened two time to me when there are no bicycles in the rack. Apparently, the knob works loose and falls off and the right arm falls off right away with no notice to the driver.
    The second drawback is you cannot go through the automatic car washes with this rack. They won't even allow you to try.

    I needed a spare tire rack for two Trek road bikes for a long trip (1200 miles one way), did some research and settled on this one. I installed it on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4 door. I have custom rims so had to work with the plate a little to figure out the right way to get it on. (Actually the bike shop did it for me, which was very helpful!) but it wasn't a big deal and they had it installed in about 20 minutes. It is VERY sturdy! We figured for such a long drive we'd have a lot bounce and would have to stop frequently to tighten everything. That was not the case at all! No movement of the bikes at all and no loosening of anything on the rack. We were shocked and very pleased, we didn't have to worry about it all.
    I read several reviews where people complained that it wasn't meant for two bikes... the cradles are close together but two full size Trek road bikes fit fine. I did but a couple rags around places where they were rubbing but we had no problems. You have to use the all the cradle straps and get them as tight as possible. We also used a couple of bungee cords just to stabilize everything for the long ride and the rack has a bungee attach hook which is awesome! So I didn't have to attach to my rims and scratch anything.
    This rack is great and I'd recommend it to anyone, short or long trips, one or two bikes!
