I have a Sportrack 4EZ. I love it. Bikes are all secure. No cosmetic damage to any bike that's spent any time on it. I've hauled a 29er, 26er, 24 and 20 at the same time on it with no problem. I think a rack is a personal preference and may depend on several circumstances the buyer must face. A full suspension bike may not work on a hanging type due to the front shock or a hardtail may not work due to top tube slope, i.e. small or extra small frame. Price may inhibit the purchase of a Kuat or 1upUSA rack. Buy the rack that best suits your needs vs. budget vs. style preference.
