Allen Sports Premium 2 Bike Spare Tire Mounted Bike Rack Reviews
For what it is its awesome! Works great. At first I thought it wouldn't because we were kinda in a hurry to load my kids bikes. I went to set them on, and because of the frame design, I couldn't get them to lay on the upper frame tube like an adult bike. But as we left of our trip, (bikes were in another vehicle, didn't get left home but the rack did) I thought, crap! I could have hung them differently. So when we got home, I put the rack back on the Jeep and hung them the way I thought it would work. Well, waalaa! It did. This rack is solid, doesn't move on you, holds bikes securely and is compact and easy to install. No, its easier than easy to install but I don't know what word to use for it. The only mod I made is on the arms that go over the 3rd brake light. I cut some pool noodle to cover the arms and it actually even helped hold it tighter to the Jeep. This was put on a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JLU)
I got this bike rack as a gift last year. I only used it a couple of times and thought that it worked great as I had only been hauling one bike at a time. I recently had two fairly expensive bikes on it when out of nowhere the rack collapsed as I was driving down the road. The metal support bars that connect the mid section to the upper arms had popped out of their holes and threw my bikes to the ground causing damage to both bikes. The design of the rack appears to not be built to support more than one bike.
I like this model as it's lightweight, easy to get off and on, and I don't have to worry about modifying my Jeep to put this on. I found that if you shave the hooks down a bit, they fit right into the holes under the rear frame. That would be my only complaint, just make the hooks a bit narrower and I think other Jeep owners can benefit with putting the hooks into metal holes vice the plastic bumper.
