great purchase for the money

Comments about BELL Trunk-Mount 2-Bike Carrier:

I purchased this while moving my daughter home, from Grandma's. It not only worked beautifully, it didn't leave a mark on my prized BMW. It was very easy to set up and use, it didn't require anny tools and survived 8 hour drive over buckled pavement from the St. Louis Metro to Green Bay, Wisconsin without leaving a mark on my car.

Good rack for two bikes. Lightweight. Easy to put on car. Works on my Hatchback but it took a while to find thr sweetspot. Could use 2 side straps but it sturdy enough for my car.
Good for the money!

Comments about BELL Trunk-Mount 2-Bike Carrier:

I bought the 2-bike rack from Bell from Sports Authority YEARS AGO. I never used it because I could never get a handle on installing it properly. Then, I watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv-NwlFeDpI and I began to use it occasionally on short distances (like from LA to San Diego).

Cut to earlier this year, when my boyfriend and I decided to drive cross-country to Maine to spend the summer. We wanted to take our bikes, so I lunged out the rack and we tentatively set out. We were often driving for six to nine hours each day, and most of the time we were taking the bikes off the rack to put in the hotel room overnight. We managed to make it to Maine, and then back to California last month.

So yes, I just drove over 10,000 miles with this thing on the back of my Honda Accord and the bikes (and us) are now safely in Portland, Oregon.

It did scratch my trunk a little and sometimes it's a pain to put on (especially in the middle of a storm in Michigan), but it worked, and it's still in great condition, no fraying of the cords or dents in the frame. Some tips: we experimented with how to place the bikes so that they were more secure to the rack (such as our two road bikes set in opposite directions, and one bike seat adjusted to rest against the other). We also used bungie cords around both bikes to make them lay flat against one another, and if we were walking around a city, we just locked them together and to the rack using our regular locks. It took some patience, some ingenuity, some extra pieces -- but this bike rack really stood up to what we put it through. I will definitely be buying another one when (or if) this one dies.

Frustrating and Not Safe

      Comments about BELL Trunk-Mount 2-Bike Carrier:

      This bike rack is terrible. I used it for awhile, always struggling to put the rack on my trunk and adjust it. Adjusting it is a frustrating experience and it never fully stays in location. Once, I tried to drive on the highway with it and within 5 minutes I looked up to my rear view mirror and the rack had slipped off my trunk and my bike was dragging down the highway going 60! I pulled over and had to wait for someone to come by and help me...on the side of the highway. My bike recovered, thankfully. My word of warning: DO NOT BUY THIS.

          Comments about BELL Trunk-Mount 2-Bike Carrier:

          I bought this gadget so I could take my children to some nice bike trails around the Jersey Shore. We made the right decision. I was able to fit two smaller bicycles in my trunk, then two adult bikes on the bike carrier. It is extremely easy to use. Had NO trouble whatsoever. I find it hard to believe all of the negative remarks. I can even fit the car in the garage with the rack still installed. It's a keeper! Glad to have it; it is totally worth it!

          Comments about BELL Trunk-Mount 2-Bike Carrier:

          This product is not stable at all, after installation you could still take it off or move it around easily. It also damage you car and does not fit all bikes. I do not recomend it to anyone!
