The Bedhead is easy to install w/o any special tools and it keeps your bike securely in place. While the nut on the skewer does come off, you can make pretty tight with the quick release. It is always good to remember that locks only stop the honest person and if somebody really wants your bike then they will get it.
Sturdy, stable, and secure. This box stores enough for my family of four to go camping, visit family during Christmas (extra toys to bring home), and keep our skis if needed. Easy handling does take two people, but I have installed it alone. If you do not have a fairing and are concerned about wind noise, don't be. I have driving a several thousand miles with the just the box and never heard anything. I recommend getting the wall mount for storage while not on the car, it frees up a lot of room and looks killer, too.
Look closely, you can see where the wing broke off completely, right at the ends of the spring.
You can see where the wing has failed.
After four years of heavy use: XC, downhill and such, these pedals are dying. One the wings are breaking at the same weld on both pedals (see photos). I am curious if others have seen this same failure and if four years is a good stretch for the Egg Beaters.
I really like the four sided entry and my cleat never released unintentionally. They are comfortable and look great.
Buy them, you'll love them too!
The fact that this rack comes from the factory compatible with both an 1.25" and 2" receiver is great. Sharing between two cars with different sized receivers is a non-issue, just use or remove the provided adapter and install.
I have had three bikes back there cruising down the interstate around 80 and they did just fine. Rough roads were not a problem either, this rack is very solid.
The added deadlock gives me piece of mind that the rack and bikes are safe from nasty thieves. Sure, part of the rack could be jacked, but what good would that do anyone? I am not worried.
The forks drop down when not in use and the entire racks folds down for simple access to truck, hatch, etc.
In summary, this rack is safe, solid, and looks darn fine on the back of any vehicle.
