I bought this product recently, it arrived promptly but the product is very poor. The manufacturing quality is atrocious: rust on welds and scratches out of the box, very thin protective coating layers that flakes off very easily, tolerances are poor and the rack is hardly self-standing.
That was only covering manufacturing quality, this rack does not even hold two standrad mountain bikes and won't work for a full suspension bike.
All in all not a fit for purpose product

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stand 16 Sep 2010
By YT
I picked this up in [...] today as they were doing an annual bike gear promotion. Costed me [...]. It was perfect. Got it on the garage wall using the 2 supplied screws after drilling 2 holes. Construction was solid. Wouldn't recommend not screwing it in place through. Hold my one hybrid and one mountain bike perfectly. The hooks slide off easily for repositioning so can easily take one bike off and use it for repairs.

Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted! 24 Jan 2004
By Ashiko - Published on Amazon.com
I've been wanting a bike rack like this for years. I've tried products that seemed similar, and they just didn't work for me. This one's exactly what I was looking for.
APPEARANCE
The rack arrived with no scratches. This was a surprise, given that two of the sections that make up the vertical post were loose in the manufacturer's box, and the box was a bit battered.
The rack itself looks great in my garage.
STABILITY
When positioned against (or near) a wall, the rack sways mildly when a bike is removed or replaced. The base is big enough and the overall design is such that removing the bottom bike (gently) doesn't seem to cause the whole thing to fall over--as long as the wall is there for backup. The manufacturer recommends anchoring the rack to the wall and includes hardware for this purpose.
ASSEMBLY
The central post is delivered in three sections: The base is the curved "T" that you can see in the picture on the Amazon site. The other two sections form the vertical tube.
These main sections fit very tightly together. As far as I'm concerned, this makes the whole thing more internally stable. To assemble the central post, I relied on a many squirts from my trusty can of WD-40, some wiggling, gravity, and patience. Without all that, I would've been stuck (and the sections would've been too).
The four arms that hold the two bikes attach into slots on either side of the vertical tube. I used a small block of wood to knock the arms in and out of the slots (I don't have a mallet, and it seemed like a hammer would dent/scratch the finish). Each bike is held by resting the top tube in cradles (at the end of each arm). The cradles easily rotate as needed to adapt to the angle of the top tube. Nice touch.
It definitely took some effort to put this rack together. However, I'm pleased with the results so far. It really frees up space! Taking it apart will be an interesting challenge some day.
Is it worth the price? Well... Even with the Amazon price, it seems a bit more expensive than other garage-quality bike racks. However, over the years I've spent more in total on other racks that didn't work out for me at all. This one is just what I wanted!

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for 27 Jun 2005

Arrived with box shredded, but items inside well-protected by ancillary packaging. For the price, it's a lot of metal. Went together easily. The problems started when I tried to put bikes on it. For a women's bike, with a sloping top bar, it is hard to balance on the stand. To make matters worse, this bike's balance point was at the seat. So, the stand's holders would slide forward on the bike (due to the sloping bar), then the bike would tip backward (due to the balance point now being well behind the support points). I had to put one of the bike rack's hooks into the frame of the bike basket to stop this sliding and tipping.

Then, the rack tilted, due to the torque on the rack from the upper bike. This, even though I had screwed the rack into the wall with the supplied #10 3inch screw (with a Pozidriv head--great if you have a Pozidriv bit (like I do), but problems otherwise).

The screw eventually tore out of the wall--It was barely long enough to go through the sheetrock into the stud. I replaced it with a lag screw 1/4" by 4". That is now holding it securely.

Even though it has caused me these problems, the rack still is a bargain. Now with this sturdy lag screw in place (a 37 cent investment), the rack looks like it will stand nice and straight.

I certainly would not consider using this as a free standing rack, and I would buy a long lag screw to replace the too-short screw supplied with the rack.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy 13 Aug 2010
By Weston Donehower - Published on Amazon.com

Contrary to its name, this stand is NOT freestanding. Contrary to the description, screwing the stand into the wall is NOT optional. This stand will fall over immediately if it is not screwed into the wall. Very misleading advertising.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty darn good 29 Mar 2006
By Grant Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
THis went together in 10 minutes. In fact it took longer for me to decide where to put it than it did to put it together. I highly recommend attaching it to the wall with the screw. Mine came with a long screw (long enough to go into a stud behind 1/2" sheetrock) and a machine bolt with a toggle anchor that would be suitable for a location without a stud.

Mine holds two bikes perfectly. Each side of the holders are seperate so you can easily have one higher than the other for bikes with slanting cross-bars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap quality. Should be mandatory to bolt down securely. 20 Aug 2011
By Apricot - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I made a video to show the wobbleness of the stand without the optional mounting bolt. It wobbles quite a bit. It seems very cheap since all the pieces just slide (insecurely) onto each other. It still does the job of holding your bike, but it just doesn't seem worth the price. It may look nice and secure when it is stationary, but during mounting or unmounting bikes, the cheap quality becomes very apparent. It would have been much better if the pieces were securely attached to one another using bolts or screws rather than just loosely sliding on. If you live in an earthquake area, you would most likely want to bolt this to a secure beam and not just the dry wall.
