Have used the bike rack a few times since arrival, has been used as a single and double bike carrier. The 3 point tie down system works great, plus it's well constructed.
I am pleased with the Mate carrier. The assembly / directions were straightforward. After assembly I went on a test drive with rack folded up. I was expecting it to be noisy-clanging…it isn’t. Folding up and lowering are easy.
Loading our e-bikes ( one 70 lbs or so,the other 40-45 lbs.) the first time was a bit awkward as this was my first use of any carrier and am a bit older. After that it is easily done and straightforward.
The bikes seem to be quite secure and stable and stayed that way after a thorough test drive. We have used it three times since - no problems, no complaints.
For reference this is installed on a Nissan Frontier pickup.
Short version is- I am happy with the Mate and would recommend it to anyone who has heavy bikes to transport.
Well made, it doesn't move around once tightened up. All the bike securing points are solid. Would definitely recommend to others.
Love the new Mate rack! Easy to assemble and Customer Service (Suzie) went above and beyond! Very sturdy and easy to load 2 of my heavy E-bikes...You wont be sorry with this rack!
Holds 70 lbs bike very well. Very secure. Which it came with a locking hitch pin. I got one off Amazon. Little worried seeing a little rust already after 3 weeks of use. See how well it holds up. Nice rack for a good price. Does not tilt forward. Ir you have a hatch back may be a problem. With truck not so much. I did order the loading ramp. Just make it easier to load. Over all very pleased.
