    Strengths:    It is very strongly built. I have complete confidence using it with four hefty mountain bikes.

    Assembly was very simple, but it does require some basic tools (e.g. adjustable wrench).

    One side has a downtube strap, so it minimizes bikes swinging while stopping/accelerating.

    It can swing down so you can open your hatch/rear doors without having to remove it.


    Weaknesses:    Non-standard frames require the use of an adapter, but other hanging-style racks require this as well. Performance sells the adapters for a low price, so it's not a big weakness.

    The hitch pin is a non-standard, threaded bolt, so i can't use my standard locking hitch pin to prevent thieves from walking off with it.

    The saddles eventually wear out and the rubber nubs break off. I had a heck of a time finding replacements, and Performance was unhelpful. I finally found them on etrailer.com. They're the same mounts as the SportRack Escape. You can also use the Yakima DoubleDown saddles on this rack, since it's the same tube diameter.


    Bottom Line:   
    It's a good rack that hasn't let me down. However, being able to buy replacement parts is a necessity since rubber doesn't last forever. Here is where Performance needs to step up and make replacement parts more available. I called their customer service line and they told me to order them through the local shop. When I went to the shop, they told me to call the customer service line. DOH!
