TransIt Flatbed 2DLX Hitch Rack (XR-210) (2 Bike)
My bike hung on my old rack and I hated it. It was such a chore to get my bike securely strapped down as not to damage my bike or my car. This flatbed rack fixes all those problems. Easy to set up, but the bolts that secure the rack to the hitch arm were way too short and could not be used. Luckily I am an auto mechanic and I set this up at work (that's where the tools are) so I was ably to go to the cabinet and get longer bolts. So, you may need a trip to a hardware store for longer bolts (get the correct grade). Torque specs for these bolts would have been very helpful. Adjusting the rack to fit my bike was simple. Loading and unloading is quick and easy. There are velcro straps that secure the wheels, but they don't really reach around anything and I have narrow road bike tires. I also don't see the need to strap the tires down when they're sitting in a tray, but I'm new to this and don't know much. Overall I really like this product

TransIt Flatbed 2DLX Hitch Rack (XR-210) (2 Bike)
Overall it's an "OK" flat bike rack. I had two big issues when assembling and using the rack for the first time. During assembly, the two bolts that affix the trailer hitch tube to the rack frame stripped out when I was tightening them. The tube has internal nuts that the bolts thread into and the threads on the bolts stripped after torqueing them. I opted to drill out the threads in the tube and install through bolts all the way through the tube and put locking nuts on the outside of the tube. In the original design, the two bolts with the internal nuts are the only things holding the rack (and the bikes) to the car. The bolt stripped out so easily that I had no confidence that they would hold with the car going down the road and keep the rack attached to the hitch tube. The last thing that I want is for the rack to fall off of the back of the car because of cheap bolts.

Secondly, the locking pin that goes through the trailer hitch to secure the rack to the car fell apart on the first use. When I unlocked the lock all of the internal parts fell out. I had to piece them back together and reassemble the lock. There's no way that the lock barrel should fall out when the lock is in the unlock position. It would be better if the hole in the tube were drilled for a standard 5/8" diameter hitch pin. The locking pin that comes with the rack actually threads into the rack and then lock goes on the end of the pin. This is to hold the rack snuggly to the hitch, but it requires a wrench to tighten the bolt. Plus the internal threads on the tube for the pin won't allow a standard receiver hitch pin to pass through. I plan to modify the tube to accept a standard hitch pin.

I have pictures, but can't attach them to this review.

I was happy with the price, but it cost me $25 in hardware and about an hour of my time to modify.

On a good note, the rack is easily adjustable for bikes of different sizes and shapes and the locking clamps are solid. The clamps fit will with a men's or woman's bike frame style.

What an improvement over a trunk mount! I bought a new vehicle that has a 1 1/4" hitch mount. I bought this mount immediately thereafter, and I'm glad I did. Assembly was easy (though watch for pinch points), and mounting and locking to the hitch is a breeze. Our bikes go on so much easier and lock down more securely and more quickly than my trunk mounted rack! When we finished our ride we were back in the car and on the road in no time at all.

Other reviews mentioned some bounciness, but with the mounting bolt tightened down and locked on, there wasn't much bounce to speak of. Love that it can be locked at multiple points, too... Run some errands with your bike mounted, it's secure!

Very happy with this purchase.

Assembly was pretty easy but you need to read the instructions closely to ensure it is assembled correctly. Installation into a 2" hitch receiver was good and appears secure. I like that the rack extends out far enough that I can have my tailgate down on my Honda Ridgeline truck so I can carry two motorcycles and two bikes with all my gear.

Have not actually used the carrier yet but it seems like it will do the job of carrying two bikes.

This rack for the money so far has worked great. Just used it once so far and just carried one ebike a Specialized Turbo Vado 4.0, it weighs around 45lbs without the battery installed so right around the weight limit bike wise but if can put 4 45lb bikes with the 2 bike extension I figure my one bike and even another should carry very well as a 2 bike rack.

Good rack for the price. Very convenient to fold down and store in trunk or back of SUV when not in use. Fits 2 MTB bikes easy. The 2” insert is a little wobbly but the bikes stay firm in the rack with no movement. I bought this for my daughter at college and it works perfect for her and weekend trips.
