Foreword

Good stuff. First trip was with 3 adult bikes, michigan to kentucky. No problems at all. The bikes were lighter frame decent quality, and i did use 3-4 bungee cords to stop things from flopping around, but it was perfect. My daughter's bike didn't have a flat horizontal bar, so i had to use the allen bar adapter? this thing: it worked great.

Allen sports premier hitch mounted 4-bike carrier Review (s 545)

Solid product. My only gripe is that the linch pin allows a fair amount of wobble (no worries of it coming apart) between the receiver hitch and the rack. A wobble free bolt is included however that requires wrenches to place and remove each time you want to use the bike rack-not user friendly! i would use this special bolt if i were going on vacation and taking the bike rack for hundreds or thousands of miles or if i were leaving the bike ran in place all summer. For the casual user who will use the bike rack here and there the wobble free bolt would be a pain. -M. Theola

Very impressed! took it out camping with us, hauled 2 mountain bikes and a children's hauler that pulls behind one of the bikes. Hold is nice and secure, absolutely no problems. And love the fact that it folds down so i can get in the trunk rather than having to take it off all together. . Great buy, and strong value!

CURT 13146 Class 3 Trailer Hitch

The curt class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and suvs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover suvs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This curt class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 6, 000 lbs. And a comparable tongue weight capacity of 900 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the acura mdx suv and honda pilot (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the curt application guide at curtmfg. Com). It features a square tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation. The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers. One special feature about the class 3 that is not found in classes 1 or 2 is its compatibility with a weight distribution hitch. When used in combination with a wd hitch, this class 3's gross trailer weight capacity increases to 8, 000 lbs. And the tongue weight capacity to 900 lbs. (note: never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component). Curt class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings - a liquid bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black - that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, uv damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

CURT 22272 Rubber Hitch Tube Cover

If you own a vehicle with a trailer hitch, you know how quickly the receiver tube can get built up with dirt, debris and road grime. It does not take long before inserting a ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory into your trailer hitch becomes more difficult than it should ever have to be. With enough time and moisture exposure, the inside of a receiver tube can become seized up with rust, making it very difficult to use. Keep your trailer hitch's receiver tube clean and protected when not towing with one of curt's attractive and durable tube covers. This curt 2" x 2" receiver tube cover is constructed from quality rubber and mounts on your trailer hitch with a friction fit, meaning no hitch pin or clip is required. At curt, we want to give you a complete towing solution and that includes providing you with the products necessary to maintain your towing equipment. Defend your trailer hitch from the harsh elements with a curt trailer hitch cover.

CURT 23518 Hitch Lock

Make your tow vehicle and trailer more secure by keeping them locked up tight with a curt hitch lock. Like a hitch pin and clip, a hitch lock is designed to insert into the fastener hole in the side of a receiver tube in order to hold a ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory in place. While a curt hitch pin does offer sufficient strength for keeping your ball mount firmly attached, a curt hitch lock goes one step further. Curt hitch locks allow you to lock your ball mount into your trailer hitch, deterring theft and preventing anyone from detaching your trailer at the ball mount and towing away your property without your permission. This curt hitch lock features a barbell design and comes with a 5/8" pin diameter to fit a 2" receiver tube size. Curt barbell hitch locks are comprised of a pin with two end caps and a round locking mechanism. They are key-operated and activate with a simple 1/4-turn. They also come with a watertight dust cap to keep out the elements and prevent corrosion. For the ultimate in towing security, a hitch lock and coupler lock used together will provide security at both the vehicle-side and trailer-side of your towing setup. For your boat, atv or camper, keep your toys more secure with curt hitch locks.

Allen Sports Tension Bar Bicycle Cross-Bar Adaptor

I have a low entry bike, which does not work on standard bike racks. I was a little worried when i read that it could damage the paint job on the bike, but when i got it and put it on my bike, it fit where there was stainless steel, and no paint. It does not scratch my bike, and it works great with our bike rack. It keeps the bike very stable and fits perfectly. I really like the spring in it, it is hard to pull out, but because it is hard to pull, it keeps the bike safe. The pin that holds it onto the front of the bike also works nicely. I do have a little trouble putting it on myself (i need to work out), but my husband has no problem getting it on.

Allen sports brings you a bicycle adaptor cross bar that adds a top tube to non-conventional frames. An internal spring maintains constant tension. Quickly attach this adaptor bar to a wide range of frame styles. Amazingly, its plastic coated hooks protect your bicycle's finish.

Allen Sports Tension Bar Bicycle Cross-bar Adaptor (900b) FAQ.

I have tried a few different bike top bar adapters:. Yakima- solid, strong, well-built. But no internal bungee, locking arms swing upward, which is not the most convenient, and has an exposed nut that can catch on bike rack straps. Swagman- locking arms swing out (not up), which is more convenient when attaching to your bike, and overall, it will do the job. But it has a very thin internal bungee that offers very little resistance, so i question its effectiveness. Saris- this one is probably my favorite because it has no swinging arms. The locking mechanism slides open and closed on the bar, which takes a little getting used to, but you get used to it quickly. It is as solid and sturdy as the yakima, and like the yakima, it does not have an internal bungee, but they both have an internal "stop" so that the two sides of the tube cannot be pulled apart. . Now for the allen. At the lowest price point of all of the above adapters, i think this bar is easily the best value. You just need to know what you are getting. . First of all, it has what appears to be a large internal metal spring, which provides a very strong resistance, making it the only bar i tested that had absolutely no movement when attached to the bike. This makes it incredibly stable. . As for the issues that some reviewers have pointed out, the metal lock pin on one end of the bar will probably scratch your bikes paint at some point. However, if your bikes handlebar post or seat post are not painted, this will obviously not be an issue for you. Some who do have these bike parts painted have come up with ways to cover the pin (electrical tape, hear shrink wrap, rubber tube, etc. ). For me, i used a heavy duty rubber cable wrap that is split on one side. I cut it to size, and it easily wraps around the metal pin to protect the bikes paint. . One safety issue i have read about is that the metal clip that secures the pin in place can loosen and come off, which would release the pin and the bike would drop. As far as i can tell, the vast majority of people do not have this problem. I can see how over time, pulling the clip across the end of the bar to hook in on might loosen it, but i think it you're aware of it, an occasional squeeze of the clip is an easy way to make sure it stays tight. Also, a simple nylon wrap or short bungee cord could remove any doubt. . The other thing about this adapter bar is that the locking process (lining up and passing a pin through two holes, then pulling the clip over to the other side to lock the pin) a little more cumbersome than all the others that require a simple swing or slide to lock. Add to this the other placement of a rubber wrap around the pin and may a bungee cord around the locking clip, and it will take a little more time to put on and take off this adapter. . I feel that even with these minor shortcomings, the allen adapter bar is an excellent product. The lower price makes up for the slightly less convenient application. -Notice from K. Kathlene, North Yorkshire

Haven't used it yet. Devised a cushion to prevent scratches using 3/8 inch inner diameter tubing, no heat gun required. See picture. Will update after we've had a chance to use it.

- A. WidmerWorks great. If anything the pin could have some rubberized coating as to not mar the bike. That's easily remedied with some ingenuity though. Great value compared to other brands of the same item.

The design is quite good. It is sturdy, well designed, and is rather simple to install. As others have noted, it is possible for the short metal tube at the end of the hitch to scratch paint off the head tube of a bicycle. We used others' suggestion to put painter's tape around it and it works quite well. I would highly recommend this as not only is it well designed, it is built to last, and inexpensive.

The F.A.Q. for allen sports premier hitch mounted 4-bike carrier

Hold our 4 bikes no problem. We use it on and off road and this has held up well. We have been using it daily for a few months and i could not be happier. I was really worried i should have picked up a more expensive model but i am sure glad we did not and saved a bunch of money. It folds down for easy access into the back of our suv.

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: does anyone know if a 29er mens bike will fit on this rack? the tubes are much thicker than normal bikes.


(1) Question: the locking mechanism for tilting out looks like it's made of plastic... is this really sturdy, has anyone had trouble with it breaking?


(2) Question: is this model will fit 2002 honda odyssey?


(3) Question: can a girls bike, without cross bar be installed on the rack?


(4) Question: do you have a model that will fitt a 1 and 1/4 inch hitch?

At the writing of this review (note: please check all prices as they frequently change! ) this allen sports premier hitch rack is $120 cheaper than thule helium aero hitch carrier and it shows. But that is not necessarily a bad thing. The thule rack is really quite refined, but the question i always have with hitch-mounted racks is whether a buyer really wants something that nice. What with rain and grit and dirt and the like a hitch-mounted rack is bound to take a beating. The thule rack is so nice that it almost begs not to be used. . Enter the allen rack. It is quite rugged, does just about everything the thule does (with one exception; more on that in a bit), and begs to be used. Allen seemed to realize that a hitch-mounted rack is going to take a beating and built the rack accordingly. That means it looks a bit rough (again, compared with the thule rack), but it's a bike carrier for goodness sake! . . Unfortunately, it doesn't compare as well to the yakima ridgeback 4-bike hitch rack. The yakima rack is only $30 more expensive than the allen rack and appears to have all the features the thule one does. If i wanted something to go with my fancy suv or minivan, i think i would buy the yakima rack. But i have a pickup truck and a pickup truck deserves a rugged rack. So on with the review. . I like how the rack can be lowered/moved away from the back of the pickup/suv, minivan so that the rear doors/tailgate can be accessed (obviously a feature not to be used when the rack is carrying bicycles). Assembly is simple; all you need are two adjustable wrenches. One bolt connects the hitch piece to the lower vertical piece (this forms the pivot feature just mentioned), two bolts connect the upper assembly (the 4-bike carrier piece) with the lower vertical piece. And one bolt secures the rack to your 2" box receiver. . Here is where i have a quibble. Once you use the bolt to secure the rack to the box receiver, the hitch is essentially permanently mounted (of course you can use adjustable wrenches to undo it, but what a pain). Note that both the thule and yakima racks have lock features so that the carrier is secured, but not as "permanently" as the allen rack. Here's what i've done/recommend: buy something like the master lock 2866datsc swivel head receiver lock, chrome and ditch the bolt allen supplies (but in spending the $15 for this lock, you've narrowed the gap even more to the yakima rack. ). . Anyway, the carrier carries four bicycles without issue (make sure you alternate them) and the supplied strap is adequate (though i tend to use bungie cords to keep the bikes in line and in control). . Summary: 4 solid stars. A legitimate cost-effective alternative to the thule alternative. It beats the yakima offering, but not by very much (especially if you buy the hitch lock). In the end, i like it, will be using it (alot), and am fairly pleased. Allen, if you can bring the price down another $30, you would have a real winner.

Best allen sports premier hitch mounted 4-bike carrier (s 545) in review

This rack is great! very sturdy and secure! so far i have had 3 bikes on it and driven on highways as well as bumpy country roads. Nothing budged. It was really easy to assemble and mount to my vehicle - not so easy to get off of my vehicle, as i will need tools to remove it.

I used it to carry two bikes on a 900 mile trip, it worked great! it seems well built and should last. The securing strap will create rub points between bikes when snugged down, i used pieces of sweat shirt rags to put between them, but still had the paint rub off. So i bought some water pipe insulation and cut to fit the tail arms, that seemed to work well. I don't know how long it will last before needing replacement. . The reason i gave it four stars is because at low speed the quick release to allow tipping away for rear access rattles. There is a rubber bumper that is supposed to preload the latch to minimize this, but it is much to small to stop the rattle. It may not be a problem with the additional weight that four bikes would have. I cut a small hardwood wedge shim and stuck in, which removes the rattle, but also has to be removed prior to releasing the latch to tip the rack.

It is light weight and does the job. I have not put 4 bikes on yet, but it worked well for 3 bikes. I also like the fact that it stores away very compactly taking up very little space.

W. Isabel, Bournemouth says

I've had this rack for a while now. It does hold the bikes well, and yes, i was able to get 4 bikes on. You have to be a little creative/careful, but it can be done. It get's 4 instead of 5 stars because of the fit with the vehicle hitch receiver. It is sloppy. It does cause the rack to sway when loaded. I plan to make a shim wrap around the portion inserted before using again next summer. Going to use metal flashing bent and wrapped around the portion that fits into the receiver hole. I think this will take care of the issue, but it really should be manufactured to a better tolerance -or the manufacturer should just include a shim "to use if needed". Other than that, the functionality and features are great.

R. Guest, Arizona

I like it! but the gray piece in the middle was broken off when i took it out of the box. Did not return it because i needed the holder for a trip the following day. Otherwise i would have returned it for a new one.

This rack fit the bill for all of our requirements perfectly! we were able to fit 4 bikes on easily with a man's bike, a woman's bike and two different children's bikes (note: no adaptor needed which was a bonus). After comparing this rack to the thule and yakima versions and scouring through both online store and craigslist options, we ultimately came back to this rack. The positive reviews were great. Since we got it, we have been quite pleased with it. In fact, while on vacation, our extended family members were looking at ours and comparing it to their thule/bell racks. Even my in-law was surprised how sturdy ours was, well built, and remarked that it seemed quite comparable to his new thule rack. . The rack carried all of our bikes with no problems (going from ny to ri, then to ma especially through the mountains and then back home). We loved it and were able to leave the rack on the van (no bikes on it), and access the trunk with no problems. Only thing is that at one point during our vacation, my husband stretched one of the straps so much that it ripped. We were able to easily replace it at an affordable cost. Overall, we are quite pleased with our purchase.

The allen sports premier hitch works wonderful. We used it on our first 200-mile trip with four bikes and had no issues. It's sturdy and very easy to use and we can get things out of the back of our suburban without having to remove it as it swivels down. The price was very reasonable for this high-quality product. I would highly recommend it for anyone.

N. Hurst, Sandwell says

Easy to install and holds bike securely. I had this mounted on a front hitch and the bikes didn't bounce around at all. With the anti wobble bolt, there was no movement in the hitch. For those that complained about the bolt instead of a locking pin, if someone is going to have to tools to take off the bolt, they'll probably have the tools to break a locking hitch pin. If you are worried about theft, run a bike lock to the hitch.

Considered a much more expensive brand, and balked at the cost ($520! ). Found the allen as a great option, ordered it up, and it was just delivered. We assembled the rack in 5 minutes, and this is without a doubt one of the best bike carriers i've ever had the pleasure of owning. There was a slight gap between the rack and the interior of my 2" receiver trailer hitch, so i lightly tapped in 2 plastic shims to take up the space (readily available at any hardware store for $2). There is zero wobble and the rack is absolutely rock solid. Hats off to allen for making a great value rack!

C. Jarvis, Illinois says

Ok mounted this on my 2017 ford escape with factory hitch. . Have used for prob 5-6 trips of 150 miles+ each way. . No probs. Put 1 adult mountain bike and two kids bikes. Fitting a third would be tight but doable i think. . Very heavy gauge construction. Seems durable. In fact kinda heavy to store lol. . Very happy with purchase . Now able to enjoy bikes on vacation!

T. Peggy, Merton

It worked great. We took it camping, and in order to get to the campsite it required driving on some not so smooth roads (insanely bumpy). I was scared this wouldn't hold, but it did like a champ. I would definitely recommend. You do need to make sure you buy the special bar needed for step through bikes.

U. Anonymous, Utah says

This is wonderful. We easily fit four bikes on it and i never have to take it off because it folds down when i need to put groceries in the back. Sturdy and classy i would buy again and recommend it.

X. Michele, Vermont

Have now used it all summer, on the back of my suv, and my motor home, with more than 3000 miles on it. I have 4 bikes on it the whole time, and our bikes are not light. All different styles from a cruiser, to a mountain bike to kids bikes. Love the ease of use for attaching and removing the bikes, how sturdy they all stay on it, and how sturdy the unit stays in the hitch mount with no wobbling around. I especially love the ability to put it down to open the back hatch of the suv. I would have given it 5 stars rather than 4, but one of the arms has bent just a little bit over time. Not enough though that i am at all concerned of it breaking or anything, but when the arms are up i notice one arm just sits about 3/4 inch lower than the other one . But then again, like i said, our bikes are old and heavy. For the price compared to some of the units out there, i would highly recommend it.
