The Backbone carrier is as strong as its name, with the ability to carry up to 2, or up to 3 bikes with a maximum weight of 132 lbs. It combines capability with safe, secure bike transport and ease of mounting. Installation is a snap thanks to the hub mounting system. It allows you to quickly adjust the rack to suit the shape of most trunks and hatches, and also allows the carrier to be folded flat when not in use, for convenient storage. The Backbone is equipped with soft, cushioned pads so it won’t damage the finish on the trunk or hatch. Once it’s adjusted, the carrier is securely attached to the vehicle with 6 sturdy adjustable straps, with coated hooks to prevent damage.
The bike frames are supported on 2 support arms in soft, rubber anti-sway cradles, that securely hold the bike without damaging the top tube or marring the paint, and prevent bike-to-bike, and bike-to-vehicle contact. Soft rubber straps secure the frame to the cradles. The Backbone Trunk Mount Bike Carrier comes with instructions detailing installation of the carrier, and mounting bikes on the carrier. It’s backed by a limited lifetime warranty, which applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer’s defects in materials or workmanship.94.79 105.33

I have to start by saying I am very pleased with this bike rack. It's sturdy, but won't scuff or scratch your car. It performs much better that I expected. When on the road, my bike doesn't move an inch. I haven't tried it with multiple bikes yet, but it seems like it would handle the extras as well.9 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
