Does the job. Installation wasn't as difficult as I've seen other people mention across the web. However, I was not pleased to find out that I would ultimately need to saw off some extra length on two of the connecting pieces. It's not necessary, but looks a bit ridiculous if you don't do it. This isn't personal preference either, but an actual step in the instructions. I've also noticed that in the first few weeks of using, that heavy loads on the rack would cause the screws to come loose and rattle. I constantly have to tighten them, but I'm sure locktight would do the trick. Besides all of that - it looks good and clean, stays somewhat sturdy, and works for getting me and my bag around town.
