    StarStarStarStarStar Overall this is a good product.

    Product: Softride Element 4-Bike Rack: For 1-1/4" or 2" receivers
    Ownership: several months
    Tech Knowledge: somewhat high


    -East to install and use
    -Very stable on unpaved or bumpy surfaces
    -Tie down straps are very helpful


    My only real negative on the product is the steel cables used to secure the keep the steel clips attached to rack fell apart on the first use. The cables were not crimped together properly when I unboxed the unit. This was not enough of a negative for me to return the unit.

    Other Thoughts

    Overall I am very happy with the Customer Service at Modern Bike. I would have given this review 5 Stars if the above mentioned steel cables were crimped properly.

    Ownership: two weeks
    Tech Knowledge: average


    The thing I like most about this rack is the parallelogram feature. When the rack is tilted away from the back of the vehicle, The rails stay level. No tilting bikes at all. Assembly was super simple on this well built item. Modern Bike also offers a very nice price on this item.


    I haven't experience any problems at all.

    Other Thoughts

    I contacted Softride about a question and they were quick to respond. It is always great to know a product is backed by good customer service.
