    I’ve been pretty nervous looking for a decent but affordable bike rack. After initially getting an Outback Rack from Target, I was disappointed by the flimsy construction and had to return it. I did some more researching and wasn’t able to find any reviews for low-mid-priced racks online. Found a Bell 3-bike rack from Walmart and later on a Bell 2-bike rack from Sports Authority. These were a lot sturdier but also quite heavy.

    I have a mountain bike that weighs about 35lbs. A friend of mine has a road bike that weighs about 25lbs. I kept looking and finally settled on the Allen because of the price, design and construction.

    (I took a star off for aesthetics. The foam supports are grey. The top and bottom struts are unpainted silver aluminum, and the caps at the end of the rack are white.)

    A couple of things I learned:

    * cloth/nylon strap tie downs are better than plastic or rubber which become brittle after repeated use and exposure to different weather conditions

    * use of lighter weight aluminum is better than steel

    * the more anchor points to your car the better (3 is the minimum)

    * put the heavier bike on the slot closer to the car

    * women’s bikes or bikes without a horizontal beam from the seat to the handlebar column will require a “bike adaptor”

    * when not in use, remove the rack from the car to prevent it from being stolen or the foam padding from melting onto your car

    * lock your bike(s) to the rack with a separate chain

    * use common sense and don’t put more than the number of bikes the rack was designed for

    * drive more slowly and carefully on uneven streets

    Hope this review helped! 🙂

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Allen Sports Deluxe 2-Bike Trunk Mount Rack (Sports)
    Used this trunk mount to bring my mtn bike to Alaska this summer. Drove 3,000+ miles from Utah to Alaska on the Al-Can highway and had NO PROBLEMS at all. Everytime I stopped for gas I would check my bike and the mount. Everything was fine. The road was VERY bumpy in the Yukon. The mount kept my bike very secure through it all. I was a bit nervous because a couple people reviewed this product saying that the mount came loose or the bike pedals scratched the car. I didn’t experience these problems. During my 6 day trip I had put the bike on and tightened the straps every morning before I left. I never had to re-tighten the straps after I had initially mounted my bike each day (but did check them regularly just in case). Thought about buying some of the more pricey models… Very glad I went with this one and spent under $50. No need to pay $100+ on other mounts when this one works perfectly. Overall VERY satisfied with this product.

    Tips for prospective buyers:

    I drive a 2001 Acura TL.

    My bike is a Specialized Hardrock (and I kept the front wheel attached during the entire trip).

    I purchased a few bungie cords to secure the front wheel/fork and the pedals on my bike.

    The clips that attach the mount to the trunk are made of METAL. I was worried that it might scratch or crack the paint on my trunk, so I wrapped the metal clips with some electrical tape before attaching the mount. This allowed for a softer contact between the metal clips and my trunk. By doing this, the clips also grip my trunk a bit better.

    This thing is great. Relatively simple to set up (do a dry run before your first trip), functional for two mountain bikes, no extra strapping or tying needed. You will have to watch out that your pedals don’t scrape your car, but the rack itself is totally sturdy. A nice product at a nice price (with lots of buying options).
