        This rack is an excellent choice. You can swing the rack fully-loaded for access to your vehicle. The quality is good and the rack is secure. I do have a problem with loading mixed bikes -- men's road, women's road, trail bikes with shocks, and kid's bikes. The unibar accessory works fine for this b...read more

        I'm totally geeked about my new SWINGDADDY! I've run Yakima roof racks for bikes, skis, & boats on my VW & Subie wagons since 2001. We recently picked up an old Westy VW Eurovan that, with a clean roof, slips ever-so-snuggly into my standard sized garage--so roof mounting was not an option...read more

        We have been hauling bikes for over 40 years. This rack is the best. I attach it to the trailer hitch on my SUV and can swing it out of the way to get into the rear of the SUV without any hassle with the bikes. It is sturdy and well belt and easy to install and operate, thank you Yakima.

        A great, sturdy Swingdaddy bike rack that transport bikes like you never knew it was on the back of the vehicle! A rigid rack that is built to last and stays in place.

        Looks and feels and performs heavy duty. Quietly secures the bikes (Although I've only carried two at a time, I have no reservation in carrying four adult not-so-light bikes). Doesn't shake loose. Conveniently swings away as shown in sales videos. The zip strips stayed in place over six trips totali...read more

        It was an easy install. The instructions were clear and after about 15 minutes I was done and hanging bikes! Great product. My only concern is that there is too much wobble/play where it connects with the tow hitch. I wish it was a bit more snug. That being said, It looks solid enough that I doubt t...read more

        I have a full size pickup and a full size SUV, and I love the flexibility of this rack. Easy to use on both, swings far away from the rear section, sturdy and secure.
