Yakima really makes wonderful products. The design of these is perfect - extremely easy to set up and use while remaining sturdy and secure. I bought 2 of these for 26" MTBs and I have no worries of those bikes bringing the whole rack down. Install literally took 3 min per rack. I was sceptical at first on weather 2 bikes would come crashing down, but I'm glad I went with these over the Viper (which is about the same price). Only complaint is that i have a Yakima old-style high-profile wind fairing and I have to take it off every time I want to use the racks. The lower-profile fairing will work no problems though. Excellent product and is the only bike rack you should buy.
