OK, so I don't "do" reviews - I selfishly read them and never post any...until now...this is a **seriously good product** and I cannot recommend it enough.

If you're like me, you'll have read the reviews and perhaps have some doubts about whether it can take "modern" bikes without a crossbar, whether its secure and whether its robust. Let me put those to rest for you...

It easily takes four bikes and they don't need a standard cross bar. We have two adult bikes (1 typical "male" frame and 1 typical "female" frame) and two kids mountain bikes, both without cross bars and a modern sloping/diagonal frame. So, that's 3 bikes out of four without a crossbar - they all fitted with no hassles or problems and are rock solid on the carrier. My advice would be to not constrain yourself to the rubber fittings being upright, turn them 45 degrees or whatever they need to be to accomodate the bike frame, and twist the bike slightly - don't force yourself to put the bike on horizontal. They will go on!

Secure? Its absolutely rock solid! Its a really clever piece of engineering to hang everything off the towbar, on one simple fitting and I am truely amazed at how secure it is. It keeps your bikes well clear of the rear of the car and in the slipstream of the vehicle - so no wind noise at all and no noticeable difference to fuel consumption.

Robust? Yep, again, its rock solid and really well made. Easy to assemble, folding storage feature does what it says, quality rubber mounts and straps. I won't pretend that the bikes don't move about a little in the rear view mirror - they do, but that's just what you'd expect of anything on a trailer.

Note - UPDATE ADDED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS REVIEW FOLLOWING 500 MILE / 5 DAY TRIP IN STORMY WEATHER

So I bought this carrier having read both the good and bad reviews on Amazon. The bad reviews seem to focus on the risk of the tilt mechanism coming loose during use and depositing the bikes onto the road. There are also a few mentions of bikes being difficult to fit or having to buy frame adaptors at (£20 each). I found none of this to be an issue.

RISK OF TILT? - First and most importantly the alleged issue (on some posts) with the clamps for the tilt mechanism coming undone and allowing the bikes to tilt while driving - I'm really unable to see how this can happen, the bolt heads have a square section beneath the head and this retains the clamp in place in the bracket even if they come slightly loose. They still can't slide-up and allow the bikes to fall (see picture). Also they need to be unscrewed a considerable way to allow the tubes to spring-out of their recess in the bracket before they can actually tilt. All I did was what I always do when carrying bikes on a car, drive a few miles and re-check the tightness of all fastenings/straps as things do bed-in a little and loosen when you first go over bumps. I've been carrying bikes for over 20 years on all kinds of racks and always do this - things always need an adjustment on any carrier, the security of the load is the responsibility of the driver. I also check the load every-time I stop for breaks etc. On my test drive with this rack and four bikes there were no issues. I suspect anyone having the bikes fall would have not tightened the fastenings in the first place, and certainly not having safety checked the load after a few miles.

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.

DANGEROUS - AVOID!!!!
the 2 knobs which screw tight to stop the rack unhinging come loose during driving - VERY DANGEROUS. Fault with my item or just the design? Having studied the design, it is most definitely flawed, and missing a more secure locking mechanism.
Thule are meant to be leaders in this field, but this fails because of their including the ability to hinge the rack without removing it off the tow bar. Sounds handy but in reality it means the rack is likely to hinge down whilst driving, due to poor locking mechanism.
Despite turning the knobs as tight as they would go, i was able to rattle the rack manually and see them starting to come loose. A short drive (3 miles) on normal road, and then a quarter mile down a rough farm track and one knob had come completely free.

BEWARE - COLLAPSIBLE BIKE RACK. We bought a Thule 9708 in order to take our bikes away on holiday to Cornwall with us, and were reassured by the good reviews we read. We have recently taken it for a test run to a local mountain bike trail, around 5 miles from our house. The rack was easy to fit onto the tow bar, but getting the 4 bikes on first time was a bit of a pfaff, but we got there in the end. On route to the trails, it was disconcerting to see the bikes bouncing around a little in the rear view mirror, despite being in a relatively urban area and not going above 40mph, however, we thought that was to be expected and weren't too worried. Unloading the bikes, I was concerned to find that the locking screws on the side, used to enable tilting, had become loosened, so tightened them as much as I could. After the ride, when putting the bikes back on the rack, I rechecked to ensure that both side screws were as tight as I could make them. Half way home, the bikes and rack were bouncing quite noticeably, and very shortly afterwards, the whole rack fell backwards on to the road, scraping all the bikes along until we could stop safely. We found that the screws on the side that enable tilting had once again loosened, presumably by the bouncing up and down of the bikes, and then the whole rack had tilted back whilst we were still moving. Fortunately there was no traffic close behind, however, all of our bikes suffered severe damage via buckled wheels. This seems to be the only rack in the range that has no safety catch on the tilt function. Why is that? Thus buyer beware - be very careful about this rack tilting back as you are travelling, and dragging your bikes at high speed along the road. We will certainly not be using this rack ever again, its just not fit for purpose.
