ust got back from a lunchtime ride, and using the new superclamp rack for the first time.

This is the mother of all bike racks. It's a pleasure to use. Love the integrated lock cable for the bikes. I have to leave my bike on the rack while at work, and the locking features at the hitch reciever and the integrated cables for the bike give me peace of mind. The step pedal to raise and lower the rack is just awesome. In the up position it's out of the way. There's also a tilted down position that gets it out of the way so I can open my tacoma's tailgate completely without removing the rack. The arms and buttons are all so easy to use. This rack is really no bigger than our old Saris 2 bike rack and yet it can hold 4 bikes. Hey! We have 4 people in our family... Perfect! : ) I also like that the rack is both threaded and locking to the hitch receiver. The years of experience the company has in making bike racks is really showing. The old product was great, but it looks like they have thought of everything!

I feel that this rack falls short in a number of ways. First off, the hitch tightening system. It is simply a nut welded to a u shaped piece of metal that slides into the end of the rack before it goes into the receiver. However this does not keep the hitch tight from moving up and down only side to side. Also it will just fall out, either sliding into the hitch receiver or into the rack itself. Next , where the rack tilts either towards or away from your car, the hinge that allows the rack to do this is very loose allowing the back half of the rack to rattle independently . Meaning your bikes will rattle and bounce around no matter what. They wont rattle inside the rack but the whole rack will move around. The overall metal construction seems ok, but all of the plastic pieces feel cheap and you will have to adjust the wheel trays every time you put a different bike on because the trays don"t pivot. Made in the USA does not make up for terrible design and cheap plastic. The plastic strap system is a joke I got a great discount on this rack and I still don"t want it. I honestly feel that the good reviews for this rack on here, are from people that don't know any better and have not used superior racks in order to compare. Lastly, I am from Wisconsin, and wanted to support a company born and bred there, however the product falls well short of my expectations and I cannot justify keeping.

        Excellent product. Me and the lady travel every weekend to races and events and often need both road and cyclocross machines to go with us. This rack has added fun into packing and unpacking our equipment! So easy to drop our bikes and go...no more front wheels off, tetris the suv. We can add another rider on race day, or take 2 road and 2 CX to all our far away destantions. We have all carbon bikes and nothing comes in contact with the frames. Bikes our super stable. We just drove from Chicago to Nashville to going down in a snowstorm and returning in a rain storm, bikes were well protected and traveled like champs on this rack! It should be called the Freedom Super Champ!

                    I bought this two weeks ago and out of the box noticed that I had five A tire holders and 3 B's. Not too big of a deal just packing error, I can let that slide.

                    The one star rating is for the build quality. Two days into a five day trip I tried to access my vehicles rear lift gate by using the tilt feature and the lever to lower it broke. I'm not sure what the linkage for that lever is made from, obviously it's not something durable enough to handle bring pressed.

                          I bought this rack for my SUV to take bike trips with the family. It's great to be able to lower it down and raise the tailgate because the young ones have a trail bike and seat that need to go in the back. The rack sticks out a few feet from the rear bumper, but is extremely stable and holds the bikes tight in place. I take it off after each use, fold it up and hang it on two hooks in the garage. One improvement that could be made for better theft deterrence is to weld the cross members to the main bar.

                                I got this rack this summer and have taken many family trips filling the four trays. The rack is very sturdy and solid but the best feature is the clamping. The clamps hold the bikes tighter than any other rack I have had to date. I was able to fit everything from 4 Enduro bikes with 800mm wide bars to 4 road bikes on there. To say that I am happy with the purchase is an understatment

                                      I picked up the Freedom Superclamp 4 around a month ago. Having used the Freedom Superclamp 2 previously, I knew I wasn't going to be disappointed. I was right. This rack is super solid, and none of my bikes have ever moved. This rack can hold a multitude of different wheel sizes as well as types of different bicycles. The four bike rack is heavy, that's the worst part. As it's heavy, I know it's going to hold my other 'precious' cargo without any issue. I'm the guy who has more invested in my bikes than I do my truck, seriously. American made, American sourced = OUTSTANDING! Sara, Chris you both have my thanks.

This rack also solved some of the compatibility issues that I had with my old rack. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a high quality rack to transport bikes with a hitch!

                                                        This is an ideal set-up for a family of 4. Our bikes vary greatly in size and frame style, so the "tray" style design works well with the odd sized bikes. It was easy to assemble, install and remove by one person. The clamps of very easy to understand and use. My biggest complaint is that if two bikes of significant variation in wheel size (say 24"-20") are placed next to each other on a tray, the clamp will not effectively engage the small wheel/tire. The correct angle of the arm will not allow the clamp to reach the smallest tire. My only other issue is that my rack came with 5 'A' trays and 3 'B' trays. It requires 4 of each. I'm currently working on a solution with Saris.

                                                                Can the Freedom SuperClamp 4 bike be reduced to a 2 bike for everyday use? I usually only need the other two spots for road trips and the extra spots are more cumbersome when using the hatch.
