    Allen has a good 4-bike trunk rack, but I like Hollywood’s better., November 26, 2013

    So anyone who rides bikes knows that it’s really handy to have a trunk rack or hitch mount to carry your bike from trail to trail. Racks also make it easy for transport of your bike anywhere you go. For those of you with multiple bikes, 4-bike racks are the way to go. Allen tries with theirs, but I just don’t like it that much.

    UNBOXING:

    The Allen Sports Premier 4-bike Trunk Rack comes in a 36x18x4.5″ box. It is heavy, weighing in at around 23 lbs. There is no packing material, so make sure to carefully inspect the rack after it gets delivered, especially if the box is damaged (mine was).

    REVIEW:

    The Allen rack is very sturdy, and the bike holders are well spaced to fit either mountain bikes or road bikes on the trunk. Some of it’s nicer qualities of the rack are that each strap has Allen tags sewn into them. Also, the endcaps on the rack are red to note hazards pointing behind your car or minivan. There are even nice rubberized pads for the bottom of the rack to make sure you don’t scratch the paint. However, the big no-no for me is that at the end of each strap is a metal hook that IS NOT rubberized or coated. These WILL scratch your cars’s paint. I suppose if you wanted, you can plastic dip them, but that’s extra time and cost.

    OVERALL:

    So I have a Hollywood 4-bike rack that is half the weight and has rubber coated hooks. The spacing of the bike rack is slightly narrower, and there are really no frills. Yet, I can trust that it will carry my bikes securely without damaging my car. The Allen rack on the other hand while seemingly has better quality is much heavier and will more than likely scratch your car’s paint. That to me is not worth the extra quality. If your car is an old beater, or you don’t mind paint dings, go for this rack. If not, check out something else.

    According to Allen Sports the Premier Series Trunk Mounted Carriers will install in seconds. Yes, they will, but it will take you a while to set up and decide how you want to carry your bikes. I decided to take a quick video of the rack before I took it down. I’ve been experimenting with different carrying methods. For example, I only have one hooking loop beneath the car. I tried that and was thinking I’d achieve a better balance with more weight if I tried the trunk method and did.

    Once you have all your straps in the correct positions, the positions that suit your vehicle, yes it will only take a few seconds to set up and conversely to tear down (which is what I started doing when I decided to do a short video clip). The first thing I noticed that I didn’t like was the fact that the metal hooks that attach to the trunk are not rubber coated. I plan on taking some electrical tape and wrapping them. This is probably the only aspect of the carrier I didn’t like.

    You can see I have my Boardwalk Dahon on the rack. This is an awkward bicycle, but I had no trouble securing it in the cradles. The bike looks off kilter because it’s a fold-up bike and I the strap goes over a folding mechanism, raising the bike at an awkward angle (the back looks higher than the front). Odd-shaped bikes will fit on this carrier. The pedal facing the car had clearance. The rack is very secure and I tried one little experiment before I totally tore down. The trunk was opened, with the bike on the rack, and slammed back down.

    There were no tie downs either to the lower part of the trunk or beneath the car. The support straps on the top and sides, as you can see were attached. There was very little shift all things considered. Like none. This told me that if I hit a pothole, the Allen Sports Trunk Mounted Carriers would keep my bikes secure. The carrier is very well-designed and balanced.

    FEATURES:

    ► 16″ long carry arms easily accommodate up to 3 bicycles (140 lb max capacity)
    ► Individual rubber strap tie-downs secure and protect bicycles
    ► Padded lower frame keeps bicycles away from vehicle
    ► Side straps for increased lateral stability
    ► Extra large car pads help to distribute bicycles load and protect vehicle finish
    ► Comes fully assembled; set up and installs in seconds
    ► Patented design fits wide range of vehicles (consult manufacturer website for specific vehicle fit information)

    If you have women’s bikes, you’ll need to buy an Allen Sports Tension Bar Bicycle Cross-Bar Adaptor for each one of them. What I usually see on trunk mounted bike carriers are rollers instead of what I call “feet.” These feet seem to grip the car better than the rollers for some reason. You really need to clean the car’s surface before installation. If you have grit beneath the carrier, your paint will obviously suffer from the friction. The carrier tears down quickly and when not in use I’d recommend storing it. For those who don’t care as much for dialogue, I’ll do a short pros and cons list followed by which vehicles this carrier does not fit.

    PROS:

    ☼ You can open the trunk with the rack on if you opt to secure the bottom straps to the trunk rather than beneath the vehicle
    ☼ Lightweight – one person can mount the carriers (3- or 4 bike)
    ☼ Adjustable nylon tie-downs – very solid hardware included
    ☼ Rubber cradles that will prevent your bikes from being scratched
    ☼ Anti-scratch “feet” or pads
    ☼ Folding frame for easy storage
    ☼ Easy to install and remove
    ☼ You don’t need to lift the bikes way over your head
    ☼ Fits a wide variety of cars (see the list below of cars this won’t fit)
    ☼ Comes fully assembled
    ☼ Cost-effective

    CONS:

    ► The metal hooks that attach to the car are not rubber coated

    If you follow the instructions carefully, the Allen Sports the Premier Series Trunk Mounted Carriers are excellent carriers at an affordable price. I have both the three and four bike carriers. The one in the video is the three, but they are essentially the same save the number of bikes one can carry. They aren’t meant to use off road, nor are they the type of carrier than one would use on a long trip. I’m very pleased with the quality and the “con” that I had can be remedied with a bit of electrical tape.

    FIT LIST – Vehicles that will ***NOT*** work with this carrier. They are listed by make, model and year. Keep in mind that all things considered, this is a relatively small list of vehicles the Allen Sports Trunk Mounted Carriers…
