Strengths: This rack is extremely well-made, sturdy (and heavy, see weakness.) The swing feature works well when needed, but frankly I haven't had to use it too often.

The best ride I have found from my house was along the 215 (I started at flamingo and rode all the way to just before Charleston). Its kind of a frontage road; would be good if I was a roadie but would ... Read More »
