Comments: Overall a great rack for those looking to add some cargo capacity and to do it simply and cheaply. There are some custom builders on the site building racks that are likely stronger, are cheaper and look every bit as useful, but these come with free delivery in Canada so yeah...
I am happy with this rack overall, but please don't think that this is as good as some of the $1000.00 TRUE Safari Style Racks. The carrying capacity of this is rated at 175 pounds, likely more if I used crossbars other than the stockers. It is easy to install with no tools (good) but this makes it easy to steal (bad).
This comes as a single 2 piece unit, with an optional 22" 3rd "extension" piece. This is required for the full length (56") rack and adds to the load carrying abilities.
It is amazingly quiet on the highway which surprised me, I guess the included polycarbonate wind deflector works as advertised!?
