Hollywood Racks F1B The Original 3-Bike Trunk Mount Rack
@ Hollywood racks started in 1973 when we began making trunk-mounted racks in the back of our bike shop in Hollywood, California. Our Aim was simple: we wanted to make good quality products that were easy to use and came fully assembled. We earned a great reputation fast and soon began selling our racks to other bike shops throughout California. By the late ’70s, we began selling our racks to bicycle companies such as Schwinn, Peugeot and nishiki. In 1981, we closed the bike shop and opened a small factory in los angeles, CA to exclusively make car racks, then relocated to a larger facility in 1988. In 1989, we began exporting our products to Europe, and in the 1990’s we expanded our line to include racks for trailer hitches, pickup trucks and spare tires. We have since relocated our offices, R and d and us warehouse to our present facility in the los angeles area with manufacturing in Taiwan. Our products are available in all 50 States and in over 25 countries worldwide.REVIEW:Designed

    Best trunk mount bike rack you’ll find, August 4, 2009

    They all should be made like this. I’ve had two of these bike racks (ended up giving the first one to a friend, then later bought another one). They ARE virtually indestructible compared to other bike racks. This one has NO plastic parts other than the nice black sleeves to protect your bike and car from getting scratched. It’s based on an extremely simple and therefore extremely strong design. I’ve had my latest one for over 10 years, and not a single thing has gone wrong, nor worn out, nor cracked, nor twisted, or anything.

    I’ve been a serious biker for over 12 years and this rack has been through everything: mud, rain, snow, crazy driving w/ fast turns, and I’ve never had a problem.

    No, it won’t fit perfectly on literally every car out there, but I haven’t found one yet that it won’t work on. I’ve used it on a honda civic (hatchback), an accord, a honda odyssey minivan, a camry, a dodge dynasty, and lots of others and it’s worked great on them all.

    I can’t say enough great things about them. They can be hard to find nowadays, it seems, but are well worth the money, especially since they’re one of the cheaper racks you can get, but work way better than the expensive trunk mounts you’ll find.

    I used to work at a bike shop, so I’ve had roof mounts and tried out LOTS of different trunk mount racks. This one is by far the best you’ll find as far as trunk mount racks go.

    I can’t say enough good things about this rack.

    This review is from: Hollywood Racks F1B The Original 3-Bike Trunk Mount Rack (Sports)
    I got this because my 13-years-old son bikes a lot and sometimes I have to pick him and his bike up from wherever or whenever he gets stuck.(bad weather, after dark from his friend’s house,etc) I used to simply loaded his bike in cargo area of my minivan. But after switching to Corolla, I needed a different way to transport the bike. So I did some research and came across with this rack. After reading positive reviews I’ve decided to give it a try and I’m glad I did.
    Very first time I used it I had to ask my mechanically competent daughter to help me out since I’m a total klutz. But after that I just attach/detach it to and from my car without any problem.( Bottom latches are bit trickier for me but it’s not that a big deal– remember, I’m a total klutz–probably other people won’t find it difficult) One person can load a bike on the wrack(I can do it if I have to.) but since the bike needs to be lifted up off the ground( and since I’m short, 5’1″), I ask my son to lift it up and I maneuver it into place.
    The straps that latches are attached are very long and they fliped and flapped all over the place when I drove. So I folded and tied the extra into a knot and it worked. Adjusting length of straps when attaching the wrack to my car is easy once you get used to it.I’ve used it 10+ times so far and has not left marks on my car. It works for my husband’s Saturn, too. You might want to keep a flashlight in your car in case you have to set this up in dark. I once threw this in my car instead of attaching to it before I left to pick up my son after dark. although tail light would have been suffice to help me see what I was doing but having flashlight really made the job easier.
    My husband who teaches technology education at local middle school likes this product, too. He says it’s very well designed. He likes simple but effective stuff rather than fancy and complicated gadgets.

    […].

    I hope my review helped you decide whether or not to get this product. In any case, happy biking!

    It’s a rack and it’s for bikes…, March 13, 2010

    This review is from: Hollywood Racks F1B The Original 3-Bike Trunk Mount Rack (Sports)
    From the beginning, I was impressed. From the quality of the actual item, to after I installed it (which was amazingly easy), to using it for the first, second, third, etc. time. My wife and I had grown tired of biking in the same side of town for a while and decided it was time to take it to the conveniently near foothills. So, logically, we needed a bike rack for our car. Here’s how it stacks up:

    PROS:

    Easy to install
    Tough build
    Holds bikes securely with up to three straps
    Padded to prevent scratches (to car or bike)

    CONS:

    None

    BOTTOM LINE: I would recommend this product to anyone with a car (like a sedan or coupe style) who wants to be able to throw a couple bikes on the back and go for a ride somewhere distant. If you have a trailer hitch, you should stick with those styles as they are easier to setup and take down a lot easier.

    I just leave mine on my car with the straps and slack secured inside the trunk so you’d have to cut the straps to steal it.
