Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had mine for over a year now, and held off leaving a review until it had been through a harsh Utah winter. I ride everything from a 4.8" fat bike, to a 23mm road bike, and this rack handles them all (fat bike requires a longer ratchet strap). I ride year-round, so this rack has been on my Subaru Outback non-stop, and has held up to Utah's salty roads quite nicely. I have the Tork-Lift hitch, which tucks up under the bumper better than some of the cheaper brands, so ground clearance has not been an issue for me. I could see that clearance could be a bit low if your hitch hangs down. We all know that cable locks are barely better than nothing, so I have chosen not to use them on this rack, opting for a Kryptonite chain instead. I'd buy this rack again without hesitation, but it looks like I won't have to for years to come. Save some money....buy this rack.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I loved the idea of having very lightweight protection for my poor shins, but I ended up disappointed. I never crashed in them, so I can't speak on that aspect of them. Oddly enough...they were hot! Not "sweaty" hot, but "sunshine on black" hot. Any time I had the sun shining directly on them, it felt like my flesh was being cooked. I used them with POC knee pads, and never had that sensation with my knees. I guess the thickness of the POC pad helps prevent that feeling... Also, the slightest little snag resulted in holes in the material, so they looked pretty bad after minimal use. Better than nothing, so I'll continue to use them, but will look elsewhere when it's time to replace them.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

So far, so good! This rack is well built, and very easy to assemble. It handles everything from my road bikes to my fat bike without adapters. I dislike the cable lock system that comes with most racks these days, and this one is no exception. It tightens into the hitch nicely, so there isn't much wobble. If there was a 4.5 star option, I'd select that. If the security system was just a touch better, this rack would earn all 5 stars. Time will tell how well it holds up to Utah's salty roads, but so far, so good!

I'm 6'4", 190lbs, so initially bought L, which seemed to fit nicely around my thighs, but they were a bit baggy in the behind. The chamois was moving around while riding. Not good... I traded them for M, and love them! I've ridden my Fat Bike with them down to 15F, and they were perfectly comfortable. I couldn't be more pleased with them.
