2.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for mountain bikes!, 3 Mar. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed to discover that this rack, despite being well designed with a secure tow bar fitting, cannot be used with mountain bikes, of which I have four of various sizes. To fit a mountain bike, or lady's framed bike, you need a £20 adapter for each bike, so for me that's an extra £80 before I add the £30 for a light board.

It is a shame that the Amazon description doesn't explain this.

So for me, it's a 2 star review.

However, if you have racing bikes or very large mountain bikes (they need to be at least 20" frames) you will love this rack.

I have a 17'' frame MTB and it fits perfectly onto the rack, without any adapter. I've also fitted a child bike (16'' wheels).

Also have mountain bikes x2 and 2 kids bikes and with a bit of manouvering the rubber straps have travelled hundreds of miles with them, no bother

Try one support under the top tube just below the saddle, with the other under the down tube close to the forks. Turn the movable grips toward the bike frame so it sits more "comfortably", bring over the straps and tether. Turn the bars 90* to make loading the next bike easier. I have all front wheels off and in the back of an estate car, so hardly anything protrudes each side of the car.
Load your next bike facing the opposite way from the first, watch out for the pedals. Repeat as necessary.
You might need to tie in some foam packing if the frames are close - so you don't chip surfaces when the frames are jigging around in transit. You also might need to remove any front mudguards.
Job done!
